What do you mean by "adequate"?

Twilight is basically a teenage romantic drama with vampires and werewolves thrown in to make it more interesting for the readers. So yes, it is typically aimed at girls, for example, one of the actors in the movies is literally paid to be topless in it

I don't want to judge something before I see it but Netflix tells me I'll strongly hate it if I watch it.

Although I have never read any of the books, I do believe that it is not intended for male readers, nor is it intended for vampire fans, since it seems that its vampires are not effected by sunlight.

I've yet to see a positive review by a guy.

Here's an analysis of it:

Bah, do as you wish.  You can also forge your own opinion over it ;)

(I'm not tempted by the experience though :P)

I'm a guy and I actually love the series. I'm kind of a hopeless romantic and find it fun. I think the hatred and violence toward to groups (can we say R&J) defiantly brings some stuff in it for guys. I think the movies bring more of it, especially Eclipse because of the fighting.
