Fast Five Review: UnREAL Season 2


2016 | MA15+ | Drama

A behind-the-scenes look at the chaos surrounding the production of a dating competition program.

1) Did you like it?


2) Why?

While the second season isn’t as good as the first one, UnREAL doesn’t shy away from taking the drama to the next level. This season sees producers Rachel and Quinn, beautifully and convincingly acted by Shiri Appleby and Constance Zimmer, recruiting an African-American football player to be their first diverse suitor in Everlasting, The Bachelor-esque dating show.

In a way, it’s practically watching Murphy’s law play out on screen: anything that can go wrong, does go wrong. It’s drama all the way.

3) “You would enjoy this series if…”

  • You enjoy watching drama on screen.
  • You’re curious about the inner workings of a reality dating show.

4) “This series made me think…”

About whether or not it was actually as close to real life as some news stories make it sound.

5) Overall rating?
