The Netflix teen series may have received an 11% Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer score based on the critics, but it received an 83% Rotten Tomatoes audience score based on reviews from 3,000 viewers. "If this is what a mere 3,000 people think, imagine how many Netflix subscribers actually binged the series," says Ariana Romero." She adds: "Although Netflix cares about its critical reception — the company wouldn’t be able to make 21st century history and dethrone HBO in Emmy nominations if it didn’t — it also cares about what viewers want. It’s the service’s job to give viewers what they want. Yes, even when the masses want an often-offensive black comedy about a teenager losing weight under dangerous methods and murdering multiple people after learning 'skinny is magic.' It’s not good, but it is capitalism."
