Satisfaction Review: Our Love Pool! You Let It Die

Never one to turn down a press event with exposed brick walls, lemon cake pops, and men in red sneakers, I spent Wednesday evening an advance screening of USA Network’s new drama Satisfaction. I knew exactly two things about the show beforehand, each of which came from its ‘YOUR AUNT WILL CALL THIS SHOW A GUILTY PLEASURE’ ad campaign: A man jumps into a pool in his suit, and a couple sleeps in a bed with expensive sheets. If you were drawn in by the mystery of what could possibly bring this man to ruin that nice suit, and if you thought it indicated some level of spontaneity in either the character or the show, it didn’t. It was just an ad campaign. If you were drawn in by the expensive sheets, you’re probably the target audience.
