Based on the award-winning series of comic books by Charles Forsman, THE END OF THE F***ING WORLD invites viewers into the dark and confusing lives of teen outsiders James (Alex Lawther – Black Mirror, The Imitation Game) and Alyssa (Jessica Barden – The Lobster, Ellen, Penny Dreadful) as they embark on a road trip to find Alyssa’s father, who left home when she was a child.

I just glanced at it. 8 episodes averaging at about 20 minutes each. It’ll be an easy binge.

I thought this was really great and wanted more when I made it through the 8 episodes. The two leads are really excellent. I thought it was strong in its use of narration.

A really great tribute to on the run films like Badlands, Bonnie & Clyde, and especially True Romance. Some obvious nods to Tarantino and Scorsese.

Stumbled across this by accident and really thought it was fantastic. Watched the whole thing in less than a day- pretty easy to binge with 8 episodes all about 20 minutes each- so the whole thing is not much more than a single movie.

Ordinarily I would love that but in this case I was left wanting more....

Wow, this show was a complete surprise and a lot of fun. Alex Lawther does an amazing job playing a sociopath in this and he and Jessica Barden are both entertaining. I really hope a second season comes out although I understand the graphic novel this is based on wouldn't be available for a reference.

I have to say I barely recognized "Reeks" sister Gemma Whelan from GoT in this but she did a great job as DC Eunice...

It took me a while to place her too. I knew she looked familiar.

Maybe it is because I am only on episode 2 but I thought it was okay. I can appreciate what they are going for but having seen Badlands and True Romance (not in theaters, in a film class at U.C. Santa Cruz) I think a crazy high bar has been set for this show to overcome. It is refreshingly short, almost like we are watching a collection of 15m youtube shorts that were finally collected and turned into a mini series for Netflix.

Regardless, I am curious and will finish it up soon.

Well, what did you think Inhumans? I just binged it and ... meh.

I was about to bail throughout the first three episodes, then it finally picked up enough that I finished it. The lead characters were unsufferable twats and I was getting sick of it. The actors did a great job, it was the actual characters that were grating on my nerves.

Was it just me, or did the characters look 2 years younger at the end?

A few of the podcasts I listen to were raving about this. I gave it a shot.

Not sure why this wasn't just cut together as a movie.

Was there another thread on this? I thought I had already commented.

Regardless, I really enjoyed this and would love to see more.

I wonder if this is "Airing" somewhere abroad similar to what they do with some of the BBC content airing in the US or something like that....

I really enjoyed it and would be down for a season 2 if it were feasible....

I really enjoyed this, watching it in one sitting. Is this supposed to have a second season? Otherwise that ending... I assume he's just dead?

Great show. I wonder if that's the same ending as the book?

This was almost great. Fantastic start, but then it kinda just fizzled out.

Yeah it started out stellar but progressively got worse as it wore on. Especially when they meet the father. I still enjoyed it though.

Finished the show about a week ago and really liked it, and think it stayed strong through the end.

Not a lot of buzz for this show apparently. I finished it a few days ago and I thought it was really, really good. Beyond the obvious of the performances and characters, I really enjoyed the music choices in this, as well.

Don't know if it's supposed to be one and done or a second season is coming. But based on the way it ended, I don't see how you could even make a second season.

Great news! I was hoping that's what the thread bump was about.
