"Selling Sunset" is a reality TV show that does not deal with likeable or relatable characters.
The Netflix The series recently released its third season – which, like previous seasons, follows the efforts of a Los Angeles realtor's predominantly female staff to sell quality real estate.
As we explain in the latest installment of the Original Content Podcast, Selling Sunset occasionally makes superficial efforts to draw on the heart, but its attention is clearly elsewhere: on the glamorous Hollywood Hills homes for sale, the ups and disadvantages of the luxury real estate business and especially the feuds between different factions in mediation.
It's the kind of show where the most compelling and memorable characters are the ones who embrace their devilish and dramatic side, denounce their staff at every opportunity, and use tactics like holding a Burgers and Botox event to to advertise their offers.
For some of us, these superficial joys were enough to make us enjoy the show; for others it wasn't. In addition to discussing the series, we also discussed Netflix's new test of a shuffle play function.
