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…

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

Dec 13, 2018 | Full Review…

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

Top Critic

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

Top Critic

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…

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.

May 14, 2019 | 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…

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.

Audience Reviews for Insatiable: Season 1

  • Jun 09, 2020
    Very weird show. Some of the scenes are very funny and entertaining. The concept is so different, that it is kind of enjoyable. There is one extremely big problem with it. The storyline. There isn't any. Except in the last episode. But the other ones are just pure entertainment, that worked well enough for a netflix show.
  • May 02, 2020
    Dallas Roberts is very strange, and not in a good way: his face is too small for his head. And that's about the only good thing to say about this series, aside from Debby Ryan, who at least is pleasant to watch, until she starts trying to act.

    I love Insatiable and was sad to hear it wasn't coming back for a third season. It's a light and playful show that brings a lot of awareness to heavy issues without ruining the comedy. That isn't an easy thing to pull off, but they did it well. I'm hoping the show gets picked up elsewhere, because after all - it's the audience that matters, not the critics.
  • Feb 26, 2020
    This show starts out a bit confusing, but it was absolutely hilarious so I decided to keep watching. Then, towards the end of season one, it became jaw dropping. The way it starts, I would have never thought this show would turn out to be a thriller. I was hooked and had to finish season two. Honestly, I'm pissed there isn't a third season.
  • Feb 23, 2020
    I laughed each single episode. I'm so sad it was cancelled
  • Jan 29, 2020
    season 1 was fantastic! it was supposed to make the audience think a little and maybe feel bad.. however season 2 wasn't as good, there were a few good moments but overall it didn't compare to the first season when it came to the story and the development of the characters.

    New Guilty pleasure.
  • Jan 05, 2020
    Many shows stir up drama but never really "go there". This show pushes everything off the edge and then some, in a very satisfying way. I loved the roller coaster the show takes you on around how your view the main character Patty constantly changes from start to finish and the complexities of "image" affecting this. Super fun (albeit dark) show.
  • Dec 30, 2019
    Hits so many social topics in a GOOD way. Great cast and plot. Can't wait for another season!
  • Dec 27, 2019
    Its a fun show. This time of being PC for everything is so sad. People need to learn to take a joke and be able to laugh at things that really happen.
