The End of the F***ing World

Postby CorruptUser » Sat Jan 13, 2018 8:32 pm UTC

A f***ing good show.

Synopsis: A romantic comedy about an emotionally disturbed teenage girl and a psychopathic boy that plans on murdering her.

Short though, only 8 episodes, and it's hasn't yet been renewed for a second season, but there doesn't need to be.

I saw this, a while ago. Excellent short-form drama. Quirky. Interestingly edited. Develops characters you don't initially think will develop at all. Without going into the Spoiler, I don't think CU's 'spoiler' actually Spoilers because the doubt is contrary to my expectations.

But if there's room for followup-karma, I wouldn't complain.

Best lines from the show
Spoiler:
James: ...Are you a virgin?
Alyssa: ...yes.
James: Me too.
Alyssa: NO SHIT.
(Alyssa is drenched in blood as rapist bleeds to death on floor)

Yeah - started watching it on the recommendation of my daughter. I find the faux-nihilism a bit relentless, but it's great fun.
How can I think my way out of the problem when the problem is the way I think?

It's about teenagers, of course there will be a bunch of faux nihilistic claptrap. "Waaa waaa, my dad loves me". You are supposed to hate the two characters at first.

The thing that makes one hate them less is that the characters around them have enough of their own annoying features to offset their own issues. Her bullies and hostile step-dad and somewhat oblivious mum. His Dad is a try-hard, just emotionally off-kilter in the other direction. And that's just what they're escaping from.

(I think it's only when we get to see Cop#2 trying to really work things out that you get a really sympathetic character. No, add that security guard, too. Others may have also temporarily escaped my immediate recollection. The garage(/service station)-kid, maybe?)
