The writing...

The longest, most drawn out, confusing, aimless storyline ever. My fiancé and I binged it on a roadtrip and could not take it seriously as the writing is FULL of convenient plot hole fillers that make no sense, especially since this is supposed to be “real”. The characters became so predictable and 2D but also did completely uncharacteristic things that just didn’t make sense. Also, I swear if I hear a character described as “tall” one more time, I’m going to scream. Overall, it was way too many threads to try and weave together. It felt like the writers would literally forget their own story and then bring it back up 8 episodes later when they got called out online for abandoning storylines.

Almost good

The dialogue is so so so awkward- they speak with such an unnatural cadence it's hard to continue. This is a problem to address if theyre going to do a "pseudo documentary."
