DVD Review: Un-Real Season 2
Un-Real’s first season was a fresh breeze of biting satire taking swipe at the behind the scenes of our current obsession with manufactured reality TV, and it did it so well. But as with all reality TV, you have to go bigger or risk loosing the ratings, and Un-real comes storming out the gates in season 2 with something no one else has done, a black bachelor is chosen for it’s new season of the TV show within a TV show, Everlasting.
But it’s never just been about the contestants, but also about the crew who run the show and their ever toxic relationships with each other.
All the players are back for another season, along with the power plays, politics and mind games, and this increasingly volatile cocktail delivers sumptuous black comedy episode after episode.
Rating: R16 Violence, drug use and sex scenes.
