Insatiable

Critics Consensus

Broad stereotypes, clumsy social commentary, and a failed attempt at "wokeness" make Insatiable hard to swallow.

Critic Reviews for Insatiable Season 1

All Critics (56) | Top Critics (22)

The performers are fine, but they are left hanging by the script, as it drifts in and out of confusion.

May 14, 2019 | Full Review…

Insatiable's campy shallows disguise occasional depths of emotion, moments that register all the more effectively for their rarity.

Lauren Gussis' disastrous hodgepodge of mistakes is an absolute mess, and it marks the worst Netflix original series yet to be released.

While Insatiable would like you to excuse its considerable meanness as satire or even good-doing, the truth is that it's often tooth-tinglingly saccharine.

Top Critic

The lack of care this series has for its characters is topped only by the lack of respect it has for its viewers; its veneer of edginess almost as thoughtless as its later attempts at playing 'woke.'

Aug 9, 2018 | Full Review…

Broadly cynical about pageants. It's cynical about everything... Beyond that, though, Insatiable has no clear intention.

Dec 13, 2018 | Full Review…

If Insatiable only stuck to this ridiculous premise and went balls-to-the-wall camp, it might have worked. Instead it tries to infuse wokeness, horror, satire, and teen melodrama all into one.

Nov 2, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Satire isn't easy to pull off, but if you're going to make a TV show where the premise rides a very thin line between okay and offensive, then maybe pare it down a little and focus on the parts you want to come through.

May 14, 2019 | Full Review…

Despite its creators' clear talent and smarts, Insatiable doesn't deliver what any of us are really hungry for. Instead, its telling of the same, cruel, unfunny joke added to the cacophony of bullying to which we've all become too accustomed.

May 14, 2019 | Full Review…

Satire is hard to get right -- and many of the choices this well-meaning series makes renders its particular take particularly hard to swallow.

May 14, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Sparky supporting roles are enjoyably absurd, played by ace scene-stealers.

Dec 6, 2018 | Full Review…

The premiere is a hodgepodge of fluctuating accents, conflicting tones and clunky exposition, which is a pretty accurate representation of the series as a whole.

    Wasn't hooked at first but then I couldn't stop watching to see what happened next.

    ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

    Lame... Alyssa Milano's accent is so fake!
  • Nov 11, 2019
    A tastefully cheesy masterpiece. The show expertly and comedically explores stereotypes from differing perspectives. It never runs slow. Great performances from the actors.
  • Nov 11, 2019
    Awesome show, hilarious
  • Nov 03, 2019
    Horrible. This show likes to hide behind the "it's satire!" defense but being satirical is very different from being poorly written and insulting.
  • Nov 02, 2019
    Dark comedy the end was totally great

    The goofy storyline was entertaining and an effective vehicle to introduce eating disorders without making people too uncomfortable. I think it was a very positive thing to see that people with binge eating disorder aren't always obese and people suffering from anorexia (there was a brief moment with an overweight recovering anorexic) aren't always underweight. Patty also goes out of her way to express that losing weight did not change how she felt about herself to someone who was considering starving. The show can seem a bit harsh on the surface but the message it is shooting for, I fully support. ED's aren't pretty. The binge sessions were not exaggerated. Eating disorders were accurately portrayed as a coping mechanism instead of mere gluttony or being vain. Also, it was hilarious. Yes, Patty is a murderous and selfish girl who almost constantly makes mad decisions, but the show is brilliant.

    In my honest opinion, I thought this series was a little slow and couldn't really see where it was going, BUT, I still found myself watching every episode. I loved the energy. Also, Alyssa Milano is 'Queen'. Season 2, I must say didn't disappoint. I found the storyline more compelling. It really got me thinking. Debby Ryan is a fabulous actress and her character's arch really shone brightly. I just had to watch the next episode. I love the drama, and this show is full of it. The show has charisma uniqueness and talent. It's a must-watch!

    They basically did the whole plot in the firdt episode. I could not watch another one
