7 Popular Teen Television Shows That are Actually the WORST
Do you ever think about aliens coming to our planet long after human beings are extinct, and what they’ll find and what conclusions they’ll jump to about our society based on those artifacts? While we can hope that what they find is the best-of-the-best of our culture: Monet’s paintings, One Direction albums and some wholesome TV show like Friday Night Lights; what they’ll dig up is probably going to be some entirely different things.
If we had to guess, aliens are probs gonna find the worst-of-the-worst of modern life: you know, garbage-cubes sold as art for $100, a Lindsay Lohan album and the following TV programs, which, according to Reddit, are some of the WORST (albeit, popular) teen television series of all time. Just remember while scrolling through, we are not the ones who labeled them as such… we are simply the messengers!
Okay, now don't go biting off our heads on this one. Remember, it's not us calling this show out, but we've gotta admit the Freeform hit has got a lot of haters.
The series is criticized for everything from bad acting skills to bad writing (one commenter even said they spend too much time on Malec... like, lol, wut?) and having crappy source material (The Mortal Instruments books by Cassandra Clare).
Ultimately, it only has a 46% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, which states the critics consensus as such: "Shadowhunters boasts visual thrills and a potential-rich premise, but they're not enough to overcome the show's self-serious silliness and dull, convoluted plots." Harsh words, man!
