The Terminal List, a new eight-episode series from Prime Video, has been getting surprisingly negative reviews. Slash Film calls it "offensively bad," and Yahoo! and TV Line labeled it "terminally bad." While the series hardly breaks any new ground or perfects its genre, it's a consistently exciting, dark, and twisty action series that isn't any worse than the average revenge thriller, and is sometimes better. Art is obviously subjective, and there are definitely weak spots and problematic issues in The Terminal List, but it almost seems as if the hostility against the Amazon series is politically motivated.
