The Negative Nellies Watching rating system

We do reviews in most episodes of TV shows, movies, podcasts, books — you name it. The Negative Nellies Watching rating system was inspired by Amber Knight’s Black Chick Watching system. Amber encouraged everyone to devise their own system for watching and rating.

Everything we rate starts out with 10 points, and we deduct points based on these criteria:

Bad re-enactments

Narrative cliches

Racial/gender obtuseness

Lack of good visuals

Missing pieces

Inaccuracies/anachronisms

Storytelling

Freshness

Repetition

Beating the Drum
