Chris Pratt Triumphs In The Faces Of “Woke” Critics Who Gave His New Show “The Terminal List” A Low Rating On Rotten Tomatoes
The internet’s favorite Chris (/sarcasm), Chris Pratt has taken time out from his busy schedule of annoying everyone to star in Amazon Prime’s The Terminal List. It’s a hit with audiences but a misfire with critics. So naturally, Chris took to his Instagram to let all the “woke” critics know that as long as his show is a success with the people, that’s all he really cares about.
In the event that you don’t plan on supporting anything the worst Chris has to offer, The Terminal List is a series about some military type vigilante who’s seeking justice against those who have wronged him…blah blah blah – G.I. Joe did it better. But here’s the trailer.
I’m going to assume that this entire series is eight explosively boring episodes filled with the kind of “We Luv ‘Murica!” sentiments that Chris loves. Because why else would you explain his need to make his triumph with the people a reason to call out the “woke” critics who don’t like the show? The New York Post reports that Chris was feeling extra spicy over on Instagram once he discovered the consensus was although the show may be entertaining, as an overall production it’s not as good as he thinks it is. So Chris turned this into his moment to thank his fans and simultaneously give critics the finger by letting them know The Terminal List received 1.6 billion minutes of streams despite their best efforts to shut it down with their words.
The Marvel actor’s series was certified as “rotten” on the website, with a 94% audience score and 40% critics score. The streaming show follows Pratt as Navy SEAL James Reece, who comes home after his crew is ambushed while on a secret mission.
Pratt, 43, took to his Instagram Stories to blast the naysayers, touting how the show has been widely watched despite the rating.
In one post, he posted an article with the headline, “Chris Pratt’s new Navy thriller ‘The Terminal List’ defies woke critics’ scathing reviews to shoot up ratings chart with 1.6
BILLION minutes of streams.”
In another post, the “Everwood” star plastered a photo of Dr. Evil from the “Austin Powers” franchise and noted the number of times viewers watched his show.
Here’s one of his posts, via ONTD:
In case you need a bit of context about Chris’ preening and complaining, Rotten Tomatoes gathered reviews from critics who have been panning the series with glee offering it a 40% rating. For example, Olly Richards of Empire Magazine stated “Perhaps the least appealing thing about this lump of a show is the lack of credit it gives its viewers. We’re not trusted to connect any of our own dots.” However, The Daily Mail reports a recent interview during Tucker Carlson Tonight with author Jack Carr, whose book the show is based on, basically, let everyone know if critics don’t like the show he couldn’t care less.
‘We didn’t make it for the critics. We made it for those in the arena. We made it for the soldier, sailor, airman and Marine that went downrange to Iraq and Afghanistan,’ Carr, a former Navy Seal, continued.
Now that Chris has battled his way into becoming our new action-packed, America-saving military hero get ready for his announcement to run for President in 2024 by the end of the year. That’s usually how these things start.
