Obliterated Netflix Series Review: Is It Worth the Watch?

Obliterated Netflix Series Review

We already know that Netflix constantly releases new content for us to watch, but there’s something about a Netflix Original release that makes everything a little more exciting. Let’s be honest – their originals can be a hit or miss, but that’s normal in the entertainment industry. One of their newest releases is a short TV series titled Obliterated. Now, you’ve probably seen it in the featured shows because it’s been topping the Netflix charts lately.

The biggest question is, is it really worth watching, or is it just hyped? In this post, we will be providing our review of Obliterated and help you decide if it’s worth your time or not. Also, just a friendly piece of advice: this is a Netflix Original, so you won’t be able to watch it on other streaming services like Hulu, Disney+, and Planet Dish just yet. Without ado, let’s start.

Obliterated Plot Summary

A ragtag team of elite special forces, the “SAPs” (Special Administrative Professionals), wake up in Las Vegas after a night of partying, celebrating their thought win in disarming a powerful bomb that can wipe out an entire city. Unfortunately, the bomb that they retrieved disarmed was deemed fake. Now, hungover, sleep-deprived, and possibly riddled with STDs, they must piece together their hazy memories, navigate a city crawling with danger, and disarm the real bomb before it obliterates… well, everything.

Cast and Performance

The cast of this TV series is chaotic but in a good way. Every character has a unique personality, which definitely adds a different kind of dysfunction to the team. However, what we liked about this series is that even though they have differences, they work well with each other. That, of course, involves a lot of arguments, hilarious banter, and even some surprisingly heartwarming moments. But you’ll probably cringe as well.

Main Characters

  • Shelley Hennig as Ava Winters
  • Nick Zano as Chad McKnight
  • Alyson Gorske as Lana
  • Kimi Rutledge as Maya Choi
  • Paola Lazaro as Angela Gomez
  • Thomas Howell as Hagerty
  • Terrence Terrel as Trunk
  • Eugene Kim as Paul Young

The cast’s performance was great. They were able to portray each character’s own quirks. It’s the way these actors bounce off each other that truly elevates Obliterated. Their chemistry is electric, their banter is hilarious, and their bond feels real, even when they’re bickering or on the verge of a hangover-induced meltdown.

Our Take on Obliterated

Just like any other show, Obliterated will receive subjective reviews depending on the viewer’s preferences. So here, we’ll be outlining the good and the not-so-good parts from our point of view so you can decide for yourself if Obliterated is worth watching. However, you should know that if ever you decide to watch the series, make sure to have a fast internet connection like HughesNet internet, so you can really enjoy the fast-paced action throughout the story.

The Good

Honestly, there were a lot of good factors that made Obliterated a must-watch series. If you love a fast-paced action series, then this might just be the series for you. Here are the good that we observed in the movie:

  • Fast-paced Action– The series doesn’t waste time with long expositions or character development. It throws you right into the thick of the action, with the SAPs hungover, disoriented, and racing against the clock to stop a city-wide detonation.
  • Dark Humor – Obliterated doesn’t shy away from dark humor, even in the face of apocalyptic threats. The characters’ crude jokes and witty banter provide comedic relief during the tension, making the series surprisingly funny. However, some viewers might find the humor to be too crass or offensive.
  • Stupidity in a Good Way – You know that movies that are seemingly stupid but turn out to be really enjoyable, well, despite being stupid? It’s like that but in TV series form.

The Not-so-Good

While we enjoyed Obliterated a lot, there were some aspects that might not appeal to everyone. It’s a really explicit TV series, so there are really lines or scenes that aren’t suitable for all viewers. Here’s what we consider the not-so-good parts:

  • Plot Holes and Predictability– There are plot holes here and there, and the overall story might feel a bit predictable. The central mystery, while intriguing, gets bogged down by filler episodes and side quests. The pacing can be wonky as well, considering that this was initially filmed as a movie. The dragging was quite a bit obvious.
  • Excessively Adult Scenes – Sure, dark humor is great, but sometimes Obliterated goes a bit too far with the crude jokes and nudity. It might feel gratuitous and unnecessary to some viewers, especially with all the love scenes, considering it’s only an 8-episode show.

Is Obliterated Worth the Watch?

Definitely! It’s entertaining, so the eight episodes are worthwhile. You can easily binge-watch it in one sitting over the weekend. However, if you’re not comfortable with explicit scenes, then this TV series might not be for you. Consider the good and the not-so-good aspects that we’ve shared and see if this TV series is for you. Happy watching!
