    I remember Constance Zimmer (who looks hot by the way) on Boston Legal really enjoyed her on that. I will give this ago didn’t watch it on STAN but if i keep watching it on SBS i might watch season 2 on STAN. Looking forward to this.

  2. SBS did show the ‘ Big Brother’/zombie satire Dead Set as well as some of their foreign language films that critique the genre, so it fits their profile.

  3. While it would have made sense for Nine to show this given their ownership in STAN, I can see why they wouldn’t do it. While unREAL does poke fun at a bachelor type show, it says a lot about all reality shows
