Too Hot to Handle (WORST)
Seasons: 3 seasons, 29 episodes. Too Hot to Handle is a British reality show that gathered ten adults who have difficulties holding on to a proper and meaningful relationship. They are placed in one house and are forbidden from having any physical contact with each other. If that simple rule is violated, the prize money is reduced each time the rule is broken.
Why it’s a stinker: There are loads of dating reality shows however this is as low as it can get. This show is almost abusive to our intelligence. Taking part in a competition where you’re not allowed to have any physical contact with your fellow housemates just doesn’t seem to go very far and remains low-quality TV for very few people to enjoy.
I Am Not Okay With This (BEST)
Seasons: 1 season, 7 episodes. Starring: Sophia Lillis, Wyatt Oleff, Sofia Bryant, and, Kathleen Rose Perkins. Although I Am Not Okay With This features the story of teenagers, it is not a teen show in any way. It covers the story of an adolescent dealing with, sexuality, life obstacles, and superpowers.
Why is this a keeper: I Am Not Okay With This is controversial. It was nominated for Best Adaptation from Comic Book Novel, but on the other hand, it was too authentic at times and some found it disturbing.
Seasons: 1 season, 10 episodes. Starring: Omar Sy, Ludivine Sagnier, Clotilde Hesme, Vincent Londez, Soufiane Guerrab, and, Shirine Boutella. Lupin is a French mystery thriller. Omar Sy's character is based on one created over 100 years ago, in 1900, Arsène Lupin. It tells the tale of a professional thief who manages to make his way in the world with determination, hypocrisy, and illegal ways.
Why is this a keeper: Lupin is one of the few non-English speaking TV series that really made it big. It manages to take a story that was written over one hundred years ago and pumps life back into it as if it was written only yesterday.
Sexy Beasts (WORST)
Seasons: 2 seasons, 18 episodes. Sexy Beasts is a reality show exported from the UK. It's just like any other dating show, however, everything is coated in layers of fantasy land, with the contestants dressing up as animals and mythical creatures.
Why it’s a stinker: In a nutshell, Sexy Beast is a show about obnoxious people, doing absolutely nothing that is worth our time. As this is a reality show, there is no written script, however, the participants do transform into unrealistic creatures, therefor a touch of class and sophistication could have done wonders.
Seasons: 1 season, 10 episodes. Starring (voiced by): Jake Johnson, Ron Funches, Cleo King, Natasha Leggero, A. D. Miles, and, Rob Riggle. Hoops is an adult-only animated comedy series that, unsurprisingly, lasted for only one season. It featured the life of a high school basketball coach who believes he can change the path of his life through his own team by pushing them into the big league.
Why it’s a stinker: First and for all, the language. Just because the show is intended for adults, it doesn't necessarily mean Ben Hopkins, the basketball coach, can have a vocabulary that consists only of dirty words. The graphics of the show are nothing to be proud of and resemble many other animated shows seen before. Because the show was canceled after just one season, the writers, assuming a second season would follow, never bothered changing the end and the viewers are left on a cliffhanger.
