Tv Season Info

Insatiable is a dark, twisted revenge comedy starring Debby Ryan, Dallas Roberts, and Alyssa Milano. For years, Patty (Debby Ryan) has been bullied, ignored, and underestimated by those around her because of her weight. But now that she finds herself suddenly thin, Patty is out for payback against anyone who has ever made her feel bad about herself. Bob Armstrong (Dallas Roberts), a disgraced attorney whose true passion is coaching beauty pageant contestant, is the only one who sees Patty's potential, and takes her under his wing -- first as a legal client, and then as a pageant contestant whom he coaches toward becoming the top pageant queen in the country. But Bob and his wife Coralee (Alyssa Milano) have no idea how deep Patty's rage goes, or how far she will go to exact revenge on anyone who has ever wronged her. Bullies beware: payback's a bitch, revenge is sweet, and if you cross Patty, you'll be her next treat.

Critic Reviews for Insatiable: Season 1

All Critics (50) | Top Critics (17)

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

We need storylines with fat characters that have nothing to do with being fat, storylines about overcoming obstacles from being fat, while remaining fat. And that is precisely what Insatiable has failed to do.

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.

It's difficult to imagine Insatiable arriving at a more egregious moment in popular culture.

August 10, 2018 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

Insatiable is the kind of hot mess you want to banish into the ether, never to be chanced upon by any human eyes ever again.
