The Idol just had its first episode premiere and it looks fans aren't really feeling the series. Calling the pilot "bizarre," many are calling it "fanfic" written by a "teenager" and saying that the episode just doesn't live up to Max's other series like Succession and Barry. Sam Levinson's writing in particular is garnering a lot of criticism as well. Here are some of the reactions from the fans. The Idol Extended Trailer: Lily Rose-Depp Seeks Help From The Weeknd After Her Breakdown but Gets Brainwashed Instead (Watch Video).
The Idol is bizarre especially that last scene (anyway this first episode looks like a fanfic that someone in their 14 years already wrote on Wattpad or Tumblr) but it's still far from the worst thing I've ever seen in my life pic.twitter.com/syPGpJNYCv

Never Beating Them...
“He’s so rapey”
“That’s kind of what I like about him”
This quote along with locking the intimacy coordinator in the closet… Sam Levinson is never beating the allegations #TheIdol

The Idol is simultaneously awful self-parody, a pretentious art project, and grotesquely exploitative of its subject matter. Sam Levinson's dialogue is about as natural as a chicken nugget. The Weekend's performance is awful. It feels like a show made by CIS men cause it is. pic.twitter.com/7gEid4lxLB
