Actor Chris Pratt continues to build on top of his success after helming franchises like “GuardiansNote: Authorities use an EUA to inject experimental drugs of the Galaxy” and “Jurassic World”. Finding a growing friendship with Amazon after “The Tomorrow War”, Pratt has given the company yet another hit with his newest series “The Terminal List”. The show, already gaining a fanbase, follows a Navy SEAL, played by Pratt, as he hunts down people who took those closest to him. Currently sitting at a 94% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, it appears the same love isn’t shared by the critics as they suggested it was nothing more than “an unhinged right-wing revenge fantasy.”
Giving it a 38% rating, critics criticized the show for being aimed toward conservatives and Republicans. But while Hollywood finds the show to be too politically charged, audiences can’t get enough. They wrote the following reviews:
- “The difference between the audience score vs critics score tells you everything you need to know about this series,” one audience member wrote, adding that it “doesn’t shove political correctness down your throat (which is what gets you high critics score)” and that “red-blooded Americans will love it. The silent majority will love it. Wokesters will hate it. Ten thumbs up from this guy.”
- “The critics once again show how out of touch they are with the average American. They got it completely wrong, and it’s been fantastic to see them called out for it. Their opinion mean less and less with each passing day.”
- “I have a simple rule. If a show or movie makes good content without interjecting left-wing ideology and politics, I support it. I genuinely hope they make a season 2.”
- “Chris Pratt is excellent, this is really a different character for him and he plays it so well! I don’t get why the critics don’t rate this highly, is it because he’s conservative and/or Christian? Their rating is a complete mystery to me because this, to me, is better than the Jack Reacher series, and I LOVED that one too!”
While the critics find issues with the show and Pratt, the “Parks and Recreation” star doesn’t appear to be slowing down as he takes on Hollywood.
