Is anyone else watching 'UnREAL'? It's fast becoming my favourite thing on teevee and I NEED to talk about it AT LENGTH.

So far we're five episodes deep - they released the first four episodes online via streaming.

It's a soapy, pulpy, deeply cynical drama about the production of a Bachelor-like reality TV show, centred on a dysfunctional but gifted producer, capable of wringing hysterical drama from anyone.

The Pop Culture Happy Hour had a great discussion of UnREAL recently, if, like me, you're hungry for more.

Who's up for it?

I've been running a bit hot and cold on it, but I'd love to talk about it!

I just looked for it today on FanFare (I also found it via the PCHH discussion) and was disappointed that there weren't existing threads. I agree that it's imperfect, but I also would really like to discuss it!

Awesome! How does this work? Do I just start posting plot summaries on the main page?

Yes, you can start with the newest episode, or post every one up to the current episode. And if you do post the backlog, you can do one a day, or all at once, or any other roll-out you wish.

The show is not terrible, take it back right now. The characters are all terrible people and they only make terrible decisions but the show is AMAZING.

@filthy light thief thanks! I now have a fun project. I'll write up the first ep when I get home tonight (around 8pm my time).

I have OPINIONS on what all the terrible people on this show should do but we can wait for the episode threads to come up I guess.

I skipped the middle episodes to bring us current (episode 6) after receiving approximately 500 memails about Fly.
