The End of the F****ing World

So it took me a while compared to everyone else to watch this show but I knew that when I did eventually watch it, that I wanted to binge it. And I did. I'm really glad that I did and also I am glad that the major hype of it had basically calmed down by the time I watched it. Here are my thoughts...

  • Synopsis (from IMDB)

"James is 17 and is pretty sure he is a psychopath. Alyssa, also 17, is the cool and moody new girl at school. The pair make a connection and she persuades him to embark on a road trip in search of her real father."

  • Characters

I really liked the weirdness and creativity portrayed through the characters in this show. I think all actors/actresses were chosen very well and suit their role and characters development is so amazing throughout. James' character reminded me of Freddie Highmore as Norman Bates from Bates Motel which of course is not a bad thing. The bond between Alyssa and James is so so cute and their relationship warmed my heart to watch it grow and how their feelings for one another slowly came out. I think both of them are played incredibly well and both Alex and Jessica were amazing. I personally love the weird and creepy yet cute and lovable side of James and I loved Alyssa's bluntness and yet quirks and funny comments.

There are many many other wonderful people involved in this show however these two are the main characters and focus of the whole show : )

  • Music

The music throughout this show is very different and has a good mix of types. I personally found that it set the mood and atmosphere and corresponded with the themes of the show at almost all times.

So yeah overall I really enjoyed this series and I actually do not know if there is a second season coming out however I would definitely enjoy that! The only critic I may have of the show is that I didn't feel the same connection with it as I have with previous shows however that could be down to personal taste and things like that not necessarily the show itself.

Overall I would give this show a 7.5/10.

Thank you for reading, and thank you so much for all the love on the last review I posted, lotta love! x
