“Disjointed” is a burn out.

Rotten Tomatoes compiled the 27 summer series premieres and events that had at least 20 reviews, starting in May, and ranked them by freshness. Despite talent like Kathy Bates, “Disjointed” is at the very bottom with an abysmal 13 percent out of 23 critic reviews.

“Disjointed” follows a lifelong advocate for marijuana legalization (Bates) before getting the chance to open her own cannabis dispensary. Working alongside her are three “budtenders,” her son and a deeply troubled security guard. Everybody is high most of the time and most of the jokes revolve around pot.

Ed Power from the Telegraph called it a “one-note chucklefest,” while Brian Lowry from CNN said it was “as stale as an unwashed bong.”

Other rotten shows or events included TV movie “Dirty Dancing,” starring Abigail Breslin, the first season of the Netflix series “Friends From College” and “Gypsy,” starring Naomi Watts.

You’ll notice that of all the “rotten” shows (with ratings less than 60 percent), three of them are Netflix shows. Amazon’s “The Last Tycoon” was the only other streaming service show in the bottom with 52 percent.

On the opposite end you have the best-reviewed show premieres of the summer. In the top spot is Netflix’s “Master of None” Season 2 with a perfect 100 percent rating, followed by HBO’s “Game of Thrones” Season 7 and the new “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” season, also on Netflix. In the end, the streaming giant was able to make up for its spots in the bottom with more highly-rated shows.
