I totally read that as a Newverse series being guaranteed good and a Prime guaranteed bad.
The way something is phrased, often tells you absolutely everything about where sympathies lie...
The outcome more or less rigged in favour of what the questioner thinks is good.
Ask it the other way around, if there's any doubt.
"Would you rather see a bad Newverse series rather than a good Prime one?"
Obviously you want something good. So basically, where it's set should be immaterial then. Unless you've already committed one way or the other to what you see as preferable.
