Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1):

This series is buzzing with cultural parody, which is a little too on the nose at times. Swarm is surrealistic, dark, and unsettling. The standout of the show is Dominique Fishback's performance; she portrays the unhinged, fragile, volatile qualities of Dre in a cocktail that's the right amount of uncomfortable yet intriguing. The explicit sex scenes, general degradation of women, violence, and strong language make this more suitable for an older audience. There's potential for conversations surrounding celebrity/stan culture, but the message is definitely lost among all the murders going on.
