Metacritic's Official Worst TV Show of 2019.
(#1) It's only seven episodes. But it's seven of the worst episodes that Netflix has ever streamed. Described as "the laughingstock of the internet" by Entertainment Weekly, this twist on the Lost formula finds Kate Bosworth, Alex Pettyfer, and Natalie Martinez among a group of people who wake up on a tropical island with no memory of how they got there (spoiler alert: they're death row prisoners being experimented upon in a simulation), and it largely comes from once-reputable filmmaker Neil LaBute, who appears to fail on every level. And no, it's not the kind of awful that makes for enjoyable viewing.
