Netflix this week plans to add 11 new TV shows and movies to its streaming lineup, including five Netflix originals.
The new titles for the week include part two of Disjointed, the Netflix original comedy starring Kathy Bates as the chief of a marijuana dispensary in Los Angeles. Co-created by sitcom veteran Chuck Lorre, the first first 10 episodes of the series struggled with the critics, scoring a mere 21 out of a possible 100 from RottenTomatoes.com, which tracks critical reviews.
Only six of 29 critics surveyed by the site said they liked the show.
“There are plenty of lame weed jokes, even more bad marijuana one liners, and a whole crop of dumb stoner gags,” wrote TV Guide.
Also notable this week: Somebody Feed Phil, Netflix original reality show starring TV producer Phil Rosenthal (Everybody Loves Raymond) as he tours the world in search of great food; and The Polka King (pictured above), a Netflix original movie starring Jack Black as the real-life polka band leader who stole millions from his fans by running a Ponzi scheme.
