People Are Saying Resident Evil Series Is So Bad It Should Be Removed From Netflix

People have thoughts...

People are saying that the Resident Evil series is so bad that it should be removed from Netflix.

All eight episodes of the video game-inspired series landed on Netflix last week, allowing viewers to indulge in either a few of the episodes or binge-watch the series in its entirety, before penning their thoughts on social media.

Based on the survival horror video game franchise of the same name, the series sees Lance Reddick playing the role of Albert Wesker, with both Ella Balinska and Tamara Smart playing his daughter, Jade, while Adeline Rudolph and Siena Agudong play Billie.

Check out the trailer below:

The series recently dethroned Stranger Things in Netflix's UK TV rating, although there's one catch... people don't really seemed to have liked it all that much.

After sinking their teeth into the show, one viewer wrote: “#Netflix #ResidentEvil da hell is this…Couldn't watch more than 15 min of it. Who watched it and decided to put it out. Everything about it was whack. Kind of disappointing. Just remove it and pretend it didn't happen.”

Another wrote: “That Resident Evil series is just so awful. They should just remove it from Netflix,” while another added: “10 minutes into this new Resident Evil series and it is f***ing dogs***.”

The show has not been rated all too well either, with the series receiving an audience score of just 26 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.

Meanwhile, on IMDb the series has been rated a low 3.7/10, based on average ratings from 17,000 users on the site.

In a recent interview with Bloody Disgusting, showrunner Andrew Dabb – who is the brains behind Supernatural – explained his process for choosing which characters made it into the Netflix series.

He said: “We didn’t go into it with a list of, ‘Here are the three or four monsters we want to put in there.’ Do you know what I mean? What we went in it was, ‘Okay. Here our characters are; here’s where the journey has taken them. They’re in this long dark tunnel. What’s something creepy to put in that long dark tunnel?’ Then you go to the games, like, ‘Oh, well, let’s put some Lickers in there. Let’s put a giant spider in there.’ That’s really where it came from.

“That gave us a lot of flexibility because we’re not married to the games. We’re not making a line-for-line or game-for-game adaptation on purpose, giving us a vast toy box to pull from. And we took very full advantage of that.“

The show has not been rated all too well on Rotten Tomatoes, either.

“I think the creative process was, what can we do that serves our story, but it’s something cool as well? If you look at, for example, the mother zombie from episode four. That character doesn’t necessarily exist in the games, but it feels like it probably could."
