'Insatiable' Reviews: Here Are Critics' Most Scathing Lines About The New Netflix Show

It’s a rare thing to have people picking apart your TV show before anyone’s even seen a single episode, but unfortunately for the team behind ‘Insatiable’, the chatter in the lead-up to the show’s release wasn’t exactly favourable.

‘Insatiable’ focuses on unhappy high school student Patty (played by Debby Ryan in a fat-suit), who is bullied by her classmates because of her size, until an incident requires her to have her jaw wired shut, after which she loses a lot of weight.

Following her weight loss (at which point Debby Ryan ditches the fat-suit), she’s accepted by her peers, who she seeks revenge on.

The show’s trailer sparked a huge backlash, and while many suggested we should wait until we’ve actually seen the show before we pass comment, others – including more than 200,000 people who signed a petition for Netflix to axe the show entirely – suggested ‘Insatiable’ was dangerous and should not be shown at all.
