Critics Say These Are The Worst TV Shows Of The New Millenium

2001: Black Scorpion


Black Scorpion premiered on what was then still known as the Sci-Fi Channel in 2001. The show followed Darcy Walker, a police officer by day and crime-fighting superhero Black Scorpion by night, but there’s a reason the show only lasted one season. The Hollywood Reporter’s Michael Farkash wrote, “[It] suffers from banal and repetitive dialogue, weak comedy, obvious puns and no plot surprises to speak of. In other words, it’s trying to re-create the campy tone of the old ‘Batman’ TV series. Mix that up with real martial-arts battles and plenty of explosions.”
