TV Review: UnReal 2×02 “Insurgent”

  • TV Watcher 35

    I actually got distracted watching the episode. It could not hold my attention. Except when Shiri was on screen. Season 1 was organic. Season 2 not so much. I am leaning towards sophomore slump. I’ll officially hold back till the season is over. I think all the season 1 praise has gone to Sarah’s head. I am also starting to get tired of Quinn’s one liners. They are getting old fast. What I loved about season 1 was the fact that it was new, original, fresh and not another medical or court room drama. It was different. Now I feel like UnREAL is trying to too hard to top it’s self. There is no need to do that. Don’t get me wrong it’s still one of the better shows on TV. It was my top show of 2015. As long as Shiri Appleby is on this show I will continue to watch. My gut tells me as the season rolls on they will find there way and bounce back. With Emmy worthy talent like Shiri Appleby and Constance Zimmer there is no way it could suck for too long. Sometimes I wish I was in the writers room and other times I am glad I am not.
