It's so bad and poorly produced I like to laugh at it while I watch
27 September 2018 | by Nathan2020See all my reviews

This show is so bad it's hilarious! I've always found the Purge movie concepts kind of interesting (even though the idea of an actual purge is quite stupid) so I was actually happy a TV show was announced. This show is all kinds of wacky, from the nuts-o editing to the random crazy camera work and super poor acting. I don't know where to begin! There's just so much wrong, yet still, I find myself enjoying it. This show is all kinds of a crazy (not in a good way), you need to turn your brain waaaaayyyyy off to enjoy it. If you like watching crappy stuff sometimes then you'll enjoy it, but if you can't enjoy a bit of crap TV and only want to watch actual 'good shows' then this certainly isn't one of them. LOL also, the transitions in this show are hilarious! It's like the director walked over to the editor and said, "you know how to use iMovie right?" and then left! Seriously!!! The flash back transitions are like something from the 80's! I kid you not it's hilarious! Also, also, this director must've been on acid because some of the random camera work is just crazy - It's like the director is trying to win an award for most useless camera movement ever! If you can't tell I'm in tears of laughter while I write this because this show is zany as all heck! You'd have to watch it to believe it! In short; It's an UNINTENTIONAL COMEDY. Oh, and as a final note, I've looked at some of the reviews that rate it highly and they're clearly fake, make sure you check the user account when reading reviews to ensure you're not being misled. I'm pretty sure a lot of them are crew for the show as they've only got 1 review (this) & the review reads like marketing material.
