Review of UnREAL

60 minutes

UnREAL centers on Rachel (Shiri Appleby), a young staffer whose sole job is to manipulate her relationships with and among the contestants to get the vital dramatic and outrageous footage the program’s dispassionate executive producer demands. What ensues is a humorous, yet vexing, look at what happens in the world of unscripted television, where being a contestant can be vicious and producing it is a whole other reality.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

Fans of The bachelor/bachelorette may find it funny and interesting. Watching the show from the inside, take a glance in the kitchen, see a new perspective. The pilot is great. You meeting a lot of new people, you pick your favorites, you tag people, you choose your OTP.
But be warned: it’s not a fairytale. It’s very twisted drama with sarcastic and dark sense of humor. It might pretend to be a comedy, a new kind of romance. But it’s not. It is full of cynics, egoistic, unreal and fake people. If you believe in true love and romantic at heart this show will rip your heart out, shred it in pieces, give it back to you and leave you alone with this.
It maybe a new perspective, but it’s not sit well with me and my romantic heart. I need a cheesy romance right now to balance it.
