The End of the F***ing World Show Review

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Jefferson chapter.

               If you’ve opened Netflix in the last week or scrolled through social media to see what’s going on, you have probably noticed the show The End of the F***ing World. The title alone might make you do a double take, but hopefully that second look convinces you to watch it. In my experience, many of the shows on Netflix are usually pretty great and this one is no exception. It’s quirky, funny, emotional, and easily binge-able.

              The End of the F***ing World follows the adventure of two British teenagers, James and Alyssa, as they run away from home and from the law. Episode 1 starts with each character making a decision: Alyssa decides she’d like to date James. James decides he would like to murder Alyssa. So, when the two end up abruptly going on a road trip together, it makes for a very interesting show.

              The best part about this show is that it pulls you right in from minute one and doesn’t stop until the final episode is over, at which point you’ll be left wishing there were more episodes. This show almost feels like the best of a lot of worlds – it’s darkly comic, but romantic, with suspense that builds as the episodes go by. Even though James and Alyssa end up doing some bad things, you can keep rooting for them. While they are nothing close to a picture-perfect fairytale, they’re still a very fun couple to follow.

              If you’re looking for something to binge watch right now so that you can start procrastinating, try out The End of the F***ing World. It’s unlike anything else out there right now and deserves to be watch. And, once you’re done watching, make sure to bother your roommates, family, friends, or just the girl you sit next to in class into watching it.
