Selena was one of America’s most beloved Latin artists of all time. One of the things that make her story so fascinating aside from her enormous talents, was her incredible rise to stardom, and her ultimate tragic death all before the age of 23 years old.
Sadly this Netflix biographical drama misses the mark and fails to capture the full scope of the icon’s story. Critic Kristen Maldonado in a YouTube review said that “it was missing the depth and the heart and the star power of what Selena should be about.”
The animated Netflix series is about a high school coach named Ben Hopkins (voiced by Jake Johnson) who tries to transform his disappointing basketball team into all-stars. It's been called outrageous and foul-mouthed, which, to be fair is usually how these animated series go. A handful of them stay smart and funny.
The rest are generally crass horror-shows that try to get away with things that could never be done in live-action shows.
Brews Brothers (Worst)
Here's a slightly fresh concept that we haven't seen on TV that much, a story about a family brewery. Sounds promising enough. You have family drama, beer, and business. Unfortunately, the show just doesn't land, and neither do any of the jokes.
Perhaps if they spent more energy creating characters and interesting storylines than they did on explaining the complexities of beer classifications and types of yeast, then perhaps things would have been different.
Labor of Love (Worst)
This Fox reality series claims to explore the procreation dilemma facing many women today and how the process of finding that special Mr. Right who can father their child. In reality, it's the "Bachelorette" seeking a sperm donor.
If you think that sounds romantic, then we're sorry to inform you that Kristy and Kyle (her pick of the lot) broke up a few months after the show. Thankfully they never got to the kid, but Kristy has decided to pursue motherhood alone.
Too Hot to Handle (Worst)
Another Netflix reality competition that took up too much of our time this year (even though some of us had a lot to give.) If you feel like watching a season of hot dummies work hard at not touching each other, then go ahead and bring out the popcorn.
But if you don't, then we completely understand you.
