We know this show isn’t a fluke at this point in THE REHEARSAL. Every episode has been an “experience now 🤩” for me, and GOLD DIGGER is no exception. After SCION, slightly weaker than the excellence of the premiere, I wasn’t sure what to expect next – but the latest episode shows us what this show is about.

On one level, THE REHEARSAL introduces you to people the likes of which you may never interact with. Every featured rehearsee is unique and casually absurd. From blatant antisemitism to conspiracy theorists to trivia addicts, we see a cast of characters that are hard to believe are real. But more than that, Nathan Fielder’s show is no mere copy of NATHAN FOR YOU. It’s an analysis of how ridiculous it is to prepare for something, and even when all parties involved are committed, it probably just won’t work out. That’s the real GOLD of this show.

THE REHEARSAL is available to stream on HBO Max.
