Darth Wiki / So Bad, It's Horrible
So Bad, It's Horrible are the works with the lowest writing quality of all; those which gain no genuine audience whatsoever. Trying to give them a quality rating is like trying to measure the depth of a black hole: It has none.
Or anyhow, that's how all people who read/watch/play/etc. the work have perceived it as. The work is absolutely terrible, and not just because of unfortunate
or otherwise offensive content. No past
positive opinions can be found about the work, nor does it contain Guilty Pleasures
or anything So Bad, It's Good
Such works can be recognized by the following:
- The work as a whole is truly terrible by the standard of the medium involved, with a low quality in all aspects of work creation: storytelling, drawing, writing and so on.
- The work has a small audience, and if it's produced for profit it has poor sales.
- They have been panned by multiple critics for their low quality. The work's flaws may be parodied by a number of other works, and in some cases the work may even become a pop culture-level Snark Bait.
Some Real Life
examples can be found on Idiot Programming
and TheAllegedCar.Real Life
. Popular works, deliberately badly done works
and individual episodes and chapters don't belong here.
