We've all heard of binge-watching, but right now we're fully investing in cringe-watching. Not sure what that is? Well, it's when you get fully into a TV show that's so bad, it's actually entertaining.

The latest show on our cringe-watch list? The Bold Type on Netflix.

The comedy-drama series follows three young women who work in New York City's Scarlet magazine, navigating their love lives and living arrangements while trying to juggle the tough world of journalism.

Jane (played by Katie Stevens) is a new writer for the magazine struggling to find the right tone in her writing, Sutton (Meghann Fahy) is juggling her role as a fashion assistant with a liaison with a senior board member for Scarlet, while Kat (Aisha Dee), the brand's social media director, starts exploring her sexuality when she falls for a photographer.

And it seems the jury is out on The Bold Type. While some people appreciate it as peak cringe-watch, others are seemingly just getting hooked on it.

Taking to Twitter, one viewer said: "I found that the Bold Type was a decent show, entertaining but very unrealistic.

Another person compared it to Ginny and Georgia and said that while it's "the worth show on Netflix", they "can't stop watching it."

A third added: "There's a bunch of good things about The Bold Type, but there's so many bad things, I can't."

While a fourth said: "It's cliched and unrealistic, yes. But I couldn't stop watching it, so bad it's good!" before comparing it to Selling Sunset.

A fifth compared the quality of The Bold Type to another programme.

Not everyone appreciates The Bold Type (

"There's a difference between a bad show and a show you don't like," they said. "Breaking Bad is a good show but I don't really like it.

"The Bold Type is a bad show, but I like it."

The fourth season was released on Netflix UK in March. Our cousins in the US are currently on the fifth (and final season) of The Bold Type, which is releasing weekly.

Seems like it's up to you to decide whether this show is so bad it's good, or just plain bad...
