Is It Any Good?

From a disgruntled waitress and a bored corporate drone to a wealthy woman and unemployed college graduates, the young adults in Escape Club are trying to figure out who they are and what they want out of life by enjoying a luxurious, high-end lifestyle in a temporary and somewhat artificial environment. The show highlights how immature and narcissistic many of these people are and what they're willing to do to win a year of not having to be responsible for their own livelihoods.

The criteria the cast uses to eliminate each other from the contest isn't made clear. The result is endless bickering and lots of catty, over-the-top dramatic confrontations. Meanwhile, despite the occasional reference to cast members wanting to "grow up," there are no real life lessons being taught here about the work, sacrifice, and commitment it takes to do so. Some reality fans will enjoy this as a voyeuristic pleasure, but there isn't much else here.
