On… UNREAL 3 Replies Are you watching this? You should be watching this. Seriously, watch this. UNREAL Everything about this show is wonderful. It’s a dramedy set behind-the-scenes of a The Bachelor-type show. I love the world, I love the writing, I really, really love the characters and most especially I love Rachel, the protagonist. When was the last time you truly loved a female comedy protagonist? Or watched one who felt like a real, living breathing person, not a comedy caricature designed to deliver non-sequitur one-liners written by manboys? It’s been a while, right? Exactly. Even with the TV sitcoms that I love, I’ve grown to accept that the women mostly won’t feel like someone I’ve ever actually met (and dude, I have met a LOT of people). Okay, don’t listen to me sitting here trashing female television characters, go watch UNREAL.
