According to viewers and reviewers, he has no contribution to the story. For example, ‘Rolling Stone’ calls the series “torture porn”. In their review, the magazine also mentions several problems that arose during the filming of the series. For example, Lily-Rose herself does not agree at all with the sexual approach of the male producers and is on the verge of leaving at times. The Hollywood Reporter calls the show “regressive rather than cross-border”. According to many critics, ‘The Idol’ tries so hard to be shocking and innovative that the story becomes stale.
