Most TV critics are really panned the second season of UnReal. I think they just set their expectations two high. It’s like they don’t get the second season slump. It’s like a movie sequel. You will never love it as much as the first one. Season two of UnReal is a bit more over the top bad soap opera than usual. But for reality fans, the behind the scenes manipulations are just fascinating to watch. The fact that Chris Harrison despises this show makes me like it even more. His disdain, to me gives the show more credibility than anything. I wish Lifetime would do a similar show on the housewives. Surely they could get some disgruntled producers from that franchise.
The season ended with a car crash, we really didn’t get to see. But all the usual assholes made it out alive and lived as happily ever after as one can in that sort of industry.
The great thing about this show is that every new season is a new season of the show within a show. So while they do have very long story arcs regarding the main characters, each season is a fresh start to do better. I’m just worried that much like The Bachelor, they will feel the need to top themselves each season.
During season two they were a bit more campy than the first season. I think the producers of UnReal need to know that a lot of viewers take this show more seriously than they do. The need to tone down things just a touch.
That said, for me it was another fabulous season, and I am quite excited about season three. How about you?
