Amazon’s latest series “The Terminal List” starring Chris Pratt follows Navy SEAL James Reece after he returns home from a dangerous deployment, and while left-wing critics have attacked the show since its release last week, the public has overwhelmingly praised the fast-paced thriller.
Daily Beast Entertainment Critic Nick Schager labeled “The Terminal List” an “unhinged right-wing revenge fantasy” that panders “to male red-state viewers with routine references to beer, guns, country music, and hunting.” Similarly, The Guardian called the show “terminally dull,” and only 38 percent of critics on Rotten Tomatoes gave Pratt’s latest project a positive review.
“It’s familiar to a fault, a tired and tiring series unfurling on Independence Day weekend for those looking for a low-stakes post-barbecue watch, a slab of barely heated red meat that’s all extremely hard-to-chew gristle,” wrote The Guardian’s Benjamin Lee.
Audiences, on the other hand, loved The Terminal List, which earned a 94 percent approval rating from the public on Rotten Tomatoes.
“Incredible story writing and incredible acting. I haven’t been on the edge of my seat over a show or movie like I was with The Terminal List in a very long time,” one audience reviewer stated.
“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 means less and less with each passing day. Chris Pratt & Jack Carr make for one hell of a combo. Keep up the great work.”
“The difference between the audience score vs critics score tells you everything you need to know about this series. This is an awesome series that doesn’t shove political correctness down your throat (which is what gets you high critics score),” another reviewer said. “If you want to watch an awesome series, with awesome actors telling an awesome story … this is the show for you.”
“Red blooded Americans will love it. The silent majority will love it. Wokesters will hate it,” he adds. “Ten thumbs up from this guy.”
“This series highlights how far out of touch professional critics are. I think they are lying. I think they liked The Terminal List as much as I did but they can’t admit they enjoyed the gigachad, cigar and gunpowder scented testosterone ride that this series was, because it didn’t highlight all of the social justice issues they care about,” a third wrote. “And we all know that a our entertainment can’t just entertain, it must also indoctrinate.”
