Criticizing “The Rehearsal” can be challenging due to its shifting nature. While the pilot episode is about helping a guy confess something to a friend, Season 1 later morphs into a parenting simulator and even something quite heartbreaking in the finale.
Fans of the show have flocked to Reddit to express how they really feel about it. The original poster, u/skepticalmiller, who loved the program, asked what everyone else thought. Other fans soon started praising “The Rehearsal.”
Redditor u/WhaleTrooper said that they loved the first episode because everyone got what they wanted in the end and found that fact strangely wholesome, while u/chickfromthejungle claimed, “[Season 1 is] a masterpiece.” Redditor u/AbysmalBelle even went so far as to write, “I LOVED it, we ended up going back and are rewatching all of Nathan [f]or You,” referring to Nathan Fielder’s docu-reality comedy.
However, not everyone liked Fielder’s latest offering. Redditor u/bananabossbaboon wrote, “As a fan of [N]athan for [Y]ou, [I] didn’t really like it.” Different strokes for different folks, so it might be best to watch all six episodes of “The Rehearsal” and form your own opinion.
