What is it about, Dummy?
Quibi is a new television platform website that specializes in short videos. The episodes are short and easy-to-digest are designed to be viewed on the go, ideal for a busy crowd a thousand years old. Was launched at the beginning of April 2020, with a series of shows that include Chrissy”s Court, Dishmantled, Cup of Joe, Fierce Queens, and Dummy.
Dummy debuted in Quibi only a few weeks after the launch of the platform. It was one of the shows most anticipated in Quibi, with Anna Kendrick as Cody Heller, a woman who discovers and befriends the sex doll of her boyfriend. The premise of the program is without a doubt sufficiently wild, and in the course of 10 episodes, each about 10 minutes long, viewers see Heller take the doll with her on a variety of adventures and encounters strangers. Finally, at the end of the first season, Heller and her boyfriend were faced by the wrist, forced to deal with the consequences of their immaturity.

Even with the star power of Anna Kendrick, the viewers and the critics have been very divided on the subject of Dummy. According to Bleeding Cool, some critics have criticized the program as a “project vanity” and stated that the program does not have a real attraction in addition to Kendrick, and even their presence is not enough to keep the interest for another full season. Other critics have attributed the blame on Quibi, stating that the platform, in general, does not lend itself to content that is memorable, as reported by Vulture.
In terms of how they feel the fans on Dummy, the reactions also tend towards the negative. In the own Twitter account Quibi, people were not exactly thrilled with the series, leaving comments like, “this could have been so good … but not what it was”, and “who thought that was a good idea?” Others continued to criticize the format of the program, joking that the clips teaser could not last more than a few seconds because it would be longer than the episodes real. Ultimately, it does not seem that it would be prudent that Quibi bring to Dummy for a second season, even if they could extract more of the content of the premise.
