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 (20)

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

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.

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

Aug 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.

Top Critic

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.

Audience Reviews for Insatiable: Season 1

  • Jul 03, 2019
    Fat shaming. Patriarchy beauty standards. Totally part of the problem.
  • May 30, 2019
    a fatphobic lgbt stereotyping mess. also, the main character kills three people and is still painted as the protaganist.
  • Apr 13, 2019
    Not perfect, but clearly flies right over the heads of most reviewers.
  • Apr 04, 2019
    I am only at episode 4 and I can honestly say, it's awful, but I love it. It's addictive, the fact that it is so horribly implemented makes it entertaining to watch.
  • Apr 01, 2019
    Made me frustrated with paty���s VERY WISE decisons. Maybe if she went to jail this show would���ve never existed
  • Apr 01, 2019
    I love this show. I am so glad I decided to watch it. I am ready for season 2!
  • Mar 19, 2019
    I tried to like this show I really tried. This show bothered me so much that I had to create an account to make this review. Patty in the show murders 3 people and still, they try to pass her off as the protagonist in the show. I finished the season just now and I can honestly say, worst tv series I've ever tried to watch. Nice effort but its a no from me
  • Mar 10, 2019
    All the people criticizing this series are just too sensitive it�����s clearly a satire and a good one.
  • Mar 09, 2019
    What even is this?! Who saw a script for this show and thought �� ���yes. This is how I�����ll make my name . This is the next best thing .��� Becuase spoiler, they were wrong.
  • Feb 26, 2019
    The show starts off really funny, but then the off-beat humor tends to become a bit stale. Still, worth a watch, as it's different.
