Insiders season 2 review – it’s all about pushing boundaries and boundaries, or so the contestants think

May 19, 2022

Season 2 of the Netflix reality series Insiders was released on the streaming service on May 19, 2022.

It’s safe to say that the Spanish reality show Insiders stood out with its unique concept. Unlike other reality TV series, contestants on Insiders don’t know they’re on the show. Mad? Big brother? HR disaster? Drama? Yes, and viewers love it. This show has it all. Trying to answer that burning question among reality shows, are we the same on camera? Here, this series really hopes to show real, authentic people, but how authentic are they, when they know they’re going to get a spot on a reality show? That’s enough to change someone’s behavior. Either way, it’s a fun and fascinating watch. With voiceover and subtitles available, new episodes will be released weekly, so keep your eyes peeled.

For anyone wondering, how can people be fooled after this series is already on Netflix? Well, they respond by saying that everything was filmed before the first season was released on Netflix. Does that mean we won’t get season three, though?

The format is simple, straightforward really, and each episode is around an hour long, making for a good binge watch. Najaw Nimri (Money theft) makes an excellent host, captivating audiences, she is easy and commanding to watch. The futuristic set and costumes are appealing to the eyes and give the show some edge, although I found it a bit overdone and felt like I was watching a documentary film rather than a TV series.

Similar to the first season, this second season has 12 contestants, who think they are in the final stages of casting for a reality show to win 100,000 euros. Only this time, two of the contestants are Insiders, Laura and Peter. If they tell anyone, they’re out. So a small twist and change, but enough to shake things up and cause a possible stir. They also created a group of rival candidates. Raise the stakes. It could make people dramatic and heighten their true selves, to grab attention and make an impression, and potentially force themselves to do things they don’t want to do. How far would you go for money that would change your life? Are you ready to inflict pain? Are you ready to betray and hurt people? I don’t think that sends a good message to the public.

I really didn’t enjoy the pistol practice or the electric chair, to be honest. I thought these tests were going to be more fun and entertaining, rather than watching competitors get into horrible situations, for money.

Overall, this series is entertaining and yet uncomfortable. I can’t say that I really enjoyed it; there were parts I enjoyed and parts I didn’t like watching. Morally, I couldn’t participate in this show and morally, I don’t think we should force people to do this for entertainment. I would recommend it if you like game shows and reality shows and enjoyed the first season.
