TV 'Insatiable' trailer slammed for fat-shaming; full series actually worse

“Insatiable,” Netflix’s latest controversial, teen-oriented release, arrives this weekend on the streaming service. Crass, oafish and painfully unfunny for 12 seemingly endless episodes, “Insatiable” attempts to be a satire without having a point of view. On paper the concept looks fine. The show is written by Lauren Gussis, a veteran TV writer who has worked on hit shows like Showtime’s “Dexter.” Her work here has been defended by the network as a sort of hyperbolic retelling of her own adolescence. But the result is at best painfully misguided and at worst self-indulgently tasteless.

Netflix really wobbles between really good and really jaw-droppingly bad with their original content, don't they?
