The Big Leap's joyous celebration of life and love isn't remotely subtle, but with moves like this and charm to spare, why play coy?

    I went into this show thinking I probably wasnt going to like it. I dont like reality shows. But to my delight, I do. It has a behind the scenes look at the manipulation that goes on. I like the characters and look forward to watching it each week

    This is fun. I hope it gets very dark like UnReal. People want depressing stuff. Look at Squid Game! Shockingly dark + Funny = Success.

    This show is... so bad. Plot is ridiculous and the dialogue is awful. Hard to believe that someone at Fox gave this the green light.

    Season gets better with each episode, starts off choppy in some ways but buy episode 3 is full steam with reveals that tease with expected then hit you with a finishes you aren't prepared for. Scott Foley brings a character you hate in one minute then you want to be friends with in the next.

    Fun, touching and characters are instantly interesting & likeable.

    Great story line. Classic roles!! Drama! What more could you ask for!?
  • Oct 02, 2021
    Interesting mix of boring and annoying...

    Not entertaining. Storyline not good

    "Unreal" was one of the great unsung television shows of all time, a biting satire with a towering performance by Constance Zimmer. This show takes the premise to lighter heights. The cast is simply charming. I almost hope it jumps the rails like "Unreal" did multiple times. Instantly addictive television.

    They totally copied UnReal which is significantly better and 999 times wittier however, it's still watchable. Hope it doesn't get too corny like the first 2 episodes. Literally all characters are too cartoonish and dumb.
