Netflix fans rip into 'boring and terrible' Arnold Schwarzenegger series FUBAR | The Sun

NETFLIX fans have ripped into Arnold Schwarzenegger's new series FUBAR.

The show revolves around a CIA operative who is on the verge of retirement, but he discovers a family secret and is forced to go back into the field.

Arnold Schwarzenegger, 75, is best known for his work in projects such as Conan the Barbarian, The Running Man and of course as the main face of The Terminator franchise.

But the actor turned politician returned to screens for his first leading role in a scripted live-action television series.

He's back with the new action-packed project alongside huge US stars such as Fortune Feimster, 42, former Prison Break star Barbara Eve Harris, 64 and Top Gun: Maverick actress Monica Barbaro, 32.

However, fans of the streaming giant were left unimpressed by the former Governor Of California's latest on-screen effort.

Critics took to Twitter as they even went as far to say that the show makes them want to cancel their subscription to the giant.

One viewer wrote: "FUBAR Gives Us a Flat, Uninspired, Boring Schwarzenegger Retread: Review: The star's basic-cable-caliber action-comedy may make you cancel your Netflix subscription."

A second penned: "Look, I really wanted to find and enjoy some campy fun in #Schwarzenegger's latest Netflix series #FUBAR, which ventures into Dad TV territory just as Stallone's #TulsaKing did, but I couldn't. It's lame, boring, & predictable."

"FUBAR: a handheld laser that cuts Arnold sized holes in 3ft of concrete in 15 seconds. Seems to me the writers went on strike a LOOOONG time ago," a third added.

And another said: "FUBAR on #Netflix is terrible… I tried… I really did… The 'comedy' includes Arnold arguing about ice cream cake and dialog like 'I killed him in Operation Jungle Book."

They added: "The 'action' scenes are Arnold's face and then stunt double with every punch thrown and back to Arnold."
