“Velma” was devastated by thousands of negative reviews, rating tanks of the show
To say the latest Velma didn’t stick with the audience landing would be quite an understatement, with the sentiment towards the latest show in the Scooby Doo Universe swoops on what appears to be a weekly basis.
The show seems to have been forgotten by users on Rotten Tomatoes, with viewership sitting at an absolutely abysmal 7 percent at the time of writing. Critics couldn’t muster too much love for them Velma neither, with a far from fresh rating of 55 percent.
The mature take on the Mystery Inc crew is extremely short, with half the one-star ratings dominating the user reviews page on the aggregator for as far as the finger can scroll, with people calling the show a waste of time and an unnecessary subversion of expectations in broad strokes – and with much nastier words.
From the mind of The office alum Mindy Kaling, Velma dares to equip the familiar Scooby Doo Gang (minus the titular dog) is aimed at an adult audience and serves as a glimpse into her life before the pup came into her life. While there are still mysteries to be solved, the show is delving into much more adult-focused social commentary.
HBO’s plan for the beginning of the year has proven to be a double-edged sword. During Velma proved a failure with audiences and critics alike, The last of us appears to be sinking its teeth into audiences around the world, with overwhelmingly positive impressions following its premiere episode.
If you’re curious to find out for yourself what all the literal anger is about, Velma is currently streaming on HBO Max.
