The show’s executive producer, Jack Carr, who also wrote the new series it’s based on, said he thinks the show has been criticized for not having “that woke stuff in it”.
When it comes to The list of terminalsAccording to scores from Rotten Tomatoes, there couldn’t be a bigger gap between the current 39% approval rating from 56 reviews and the 94% audience score that’s the accumulation of over 3,500 users. Considering only 19 ratings from the site’s top critics further worsens the dismal score, bringing it down to just 26%, with the consensus that the series is chaotic, absurd, and “a fantasy of corruption and virtuous violence.” However, a simple look at the many ratings reviews reveals a stark contrast with phrases such as “brilliantly written”, “twisting and spinning action”, and “Pratt is amazing” being used frequently.
Carr recently told Fox News that while the show doesn’t have a political agenda and isn’t revival or anti-revival, many critics are against the show because it simply doesn’t “promote” not the agendas they want to advance. He said:
“We don’t mention the right, the left, the conservatives, the liberals, none of those things are even mentioned. The Daily Beast, in particular, their review was pretty nasty. But they see an American flag and they get angry. Or they see someone who is proficient with weapons and has a certain mindset and holds those in power accountable and they kinda lose it. We didn’t do it for the reviews. What’s important to me and to Chris Pratt is that we did something that would speak to members of the military who have come down to the firing range over the past 20 years so that they can sit down and say, ‘These guys worked and put on a show that speaks to me.’
