Netflix's $100 Million ‘Harry & Meghan’: ‘Royal Pity Party'

In a time when America is more divided than ever, one television show is bringing about bipartisan opinions, and we gladly welcome this one moment of peace.

Harry & Meghan made its debut this week on Netflix, and things aren't looking good for the ex-royal couple based on recent reviews of their new show.

Netflix reportedly spent $100 million to produce the long awaited 6 part docu-series.

Harry And Meghan On Netflix Total Failure

"Will Meghan and Harry throw the royal family under the bus? How egregiously will they play the victim? Will they play the race card? Will Meghan let Harry get a word in edgewise?" Breitbart asks.

"It turns out all the anticipation was for naught, because according to the reviews, Harry & Meghan is a weapons-grade stinker, generating a Rotten Tomatoes critics score of 38% — with critics calling it a 'royal pity party' and a 'hypocritical attention grab.' Viewers appear to loathe it too, resulting in an even lower audience score of just 15%," reported Breitbart.

"The bad reviews are coming from mainstream publications across the political spectrum, signaling a rare moment of bipartisan consensus," reported Breitbart.

According to Breitbart, some of the mainstream report are as follows:

"The New York Post spared no feelings calling it a 'hypocritical attention grab' and a 'big snooze.' For all that the couple complains about the lack of privacy, 'they’re also inviting the public into their private relationship, and releasing behind the scenes private photos in it.'"

"The Wall Street Journal slammed the show as a 'royal pity party' and a 'public relations gambit,' adding that 'a viewer really has to be on board the royal soap-opera bus not to be bored out of one’s mind.'"

"Variety panned the show as a 'royal rerun,' saying the series demonstrates 'just how narrow their vision of their fame is, how pinched and unimaginative their presence on the world stage has become.' The show has 'an air of duty' about it, 'as if they’re honor-bound to keep reciting their personal story until we eventually lose interest.'"

"Indiewire called it a 'dull diary entry' and a 'Netflix vanity project.' The show is 'merely a long, redundant recap of two very public lives. And absent any challenging questions from outside the couple’s tidy little love bubble, it’s a dull one at that.'"

"The Hollywood Reporter said the show 'takes a lot of time to reveal very little.' The show 'offers too little that feels fresh enough to merit its luxurious six-episode sprawl for all but the most fervent royal watchers.'"

"The ex-royal couple signed a production deal with Netflix last year to produce documentaries as well as scripted series. But the streamer’s recent troubles retaining subscribers resulted in the cancellation of a planned animated series from the couple," reported Breitbart.
