Season 1

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.

Top Critic

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

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

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 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

    Just thought it was very funny and unpredictable! I never know what is going to happen episode to episode. The cast is great and I am usually really hard on shows! But there is something about this show that taps into a part of me that other shows can't. Kind of the same area that flowers in the attic tapped.

    It was completely crazy but so funny and entertaining. I absolutely loved it. Love to watch it when I just want to laugh. Their accents are iconic.

    People did not understand that the main character tries to fill the void in her heart at all costs with food, revenge, perfection and in the final episode, murder, besides being thin, she was still ugly inside. The show lives up to its name, and ends well round with some hooks

    Es humor, una sátira suave que te relaja y divierte.

    honestly, it isn't that bad. i just think it tries to be funny but fails.
  • 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.

    Made me frustrated with paty���s VERY WISE decisons. Maybe if she went to jail this show would���ve never existed
