Things started off well enough.
When Netflix dropped the first trailer for its new matchmaking game last month, Twitter lit up with excitement. The potential for a The Masked Singer -meets- Love Is Blind hybrid, in which contestants look for love while disguised by zany prosthetic makeup, was immediately apparent. Watching a flirty panda bear spend a night on the town with a robot, a bull, and an alien?
You have to admit: It sounds positively charming. But a lack of stakes, a repetitive formula, and a few missed opportunities sink an otherwise good idea. Each episode a heavily-disguised bachelor or bachelorette is presented with three just as heavily-disguised singles.
Their he and faces are completely covered, leaving only silhouettes and hands as clues to their real appearance. From a romantic night of bowling to an adventure in skeet shooting, Sexy Beasts has these available animals do all sorts of activities to get to know each other better.
But after the dates are finished, the starring sexy beast must choose a final mate before the remaining identities are revealed. And that's when things fall apart.

But like a word or phrase repeated too many times, that conceptual framework has lost all meaning in its latest iteration. Across six episodes, each running under 25 minutes, Sexy Beasts goes through the Dating Game -esque motions without ever giving us a reason to really care. While the participants are perfectly likable, the series struggles to move past the obvious silliness of the situation to capture the people behind the makeup.
There are nice enough moments and the brevity makes it bearable. Still, I struggled to keep the storylines and characters of different episodes distinct in my memory.
Pressing play on another installment of Sexy Beasts feels less like starting a new chapter, and more like starting the same story over again. Of course, that gets boring fast. The most obvious opportunity to introduce variety comes in the over-the-top costuming of the contestants. But, for whatever reason, the series chooses to treat the makeup strictly as a prop. We're never given the reasoning behind why or how certain looks were chosen for certain people, and the actual transformations happen entirely offscreen.
That choice means the most fun part of the show gets cut surprisingly short, and the most interesting aspect of the series never gets to shine. Reasonably entertaining but never obsession-worthy, Sexy Beasts is a disappointment.
Netflix's 'sexy beasts' looks way more fun than it actually is
Hilarious narration by voice-over host Rob Delaney helps keep things moving and there's certainly some fun to be had in seeing these incredible creations. Sexy Beasts is now streaming on Netflix. More in Netflix. Social Good.
