Here is everything you need to know about the animated series Velma and why it is rated the lowest series on IMDB.
Velma, a brand-new adult animation series from HBO Max, debuted on January 12, 2023, and as of this writing on January 23, 2023, it has already published four episodes. Sadly, the television show is not performing well with viewers.
The animated comedy is somewhat of a spin-off from the Scooby-Doo cartoon that we all saw as children. But this time, the narrative concentrates on the brains behind the notorious Mystery Inc. gang, and we learn how the notorious organization came to be. But don’t anticipate seeing everyone’s favorite canine detective dog since he wasn’t a part of the series for a number of reasons.
What is the ranking of Velma on IMDB?
On IMDb, Velma from HBO Max has a 1.3/10 rating as of Jan. 23, 2023, based on around 43,500 votes. Nearly 39,000 of those individuals were awarded the program one star. The series was referred to as “one of the worst shows ever made” in one review. One person said of their experience: “They made 27 minutes seem like an hour.”
According to Forbes, the poor rating makes the HBO Max production the third-worst television program on IMDb and one of the lowest-rated animated shows on the site. On Rotten Tomatoes, the animation isn’t faring any better, either. On the review aggregation website, it presently has a 50% rating and a 6% audience score.
Sam Richardson plays Shaggy Rogers in the series Velma, Constance Wu plays Daphne Blake, Russell Peters plays Aman Dinkley, Sarayu Blue plays Diya Dinkley, Melissa Fumero plays Sophie, Jane Lynch plays Donna Blake, and Wanda Sykes plays Linda Ke. Russell Peters plays Aman Dinkley in the movie Velma.
More on the Velma series
Without Scooby, the prequel to the Scooby-Doo cartoon series follows our favorite group as high school outcasts and competitors. The series, which was produced and hosted by Mindy Kaling, was characterized as “an adult animated comedy series telling the origin story of Velma Dinkley, the unsung and under-appreciated brains of the Scooby-Doo Mystery Inc. gang. This original and humorous spin unmasks the complex and colourful past of one of America’s most beloved mystery solvers.”
Additionally, according to critics, the animated series lost sight of its inspiration and jumped right into plots that had nothing to do with the original Scooby-Doo series. For instance, Velma has several scenes of nastiness and drug usage, including one when Daphne is shown to be a drug dealer at school.
