Netflix’s Insatiable, a new dark comedy series starring Alyssa Milano (Charmed) and Debby Ryan (Sing It!), has sparked outrage from critics, who have called the series “terminally dull,” “unfunny” and “an offensive mess,” taking the show to task for its writing, structure, tone, and reliance on stereotypes.
Insatiable centers on Patty (Ryan), a teenager who finds herself being bullied by her classmates for being overweight. When she becomes thin, Patty decides that the best way to get revenge is to enter into a beauty pageant. In order to achieve her goals, Patty teams up with Bob (Dallas Roberts), an attorney who enjoys helping beauty pageant contestants.
