Proof Netflix Originals aren't always a safe bet
By Christopher Hooton
Granted, these are all algorithm-based, but when pushing a new show Netflix will often try to promote its original content even if it doesn't 100% fall in line with what you've watched before, and you'd think 'Recently Added' would work fairly independently from taste.
The film still ostensibly has an average 4-star rating among viewers, but a glance at the multitude of 1-star user reviews paints a different picture.
'Seems like they forgot to put the jokes in this one,' one reads. 'And the acting. And plot. Anything, really.'

Netflix is trying to bury The Ridiculous Six hoping no one notices
Despite being out for a mere three days, it now can’t be found for many on the ‘Popular on Netflix’ or ‘Recently Added’ sections of Netflix–only remaining in ‘Comedy’ and ‘Trending Now.’
Embarrassing. Don’t blame it on the algorithm, guys.
