The End of the Fucking World If you are looking for a show that is fast-paced, different, knows what works and delivers it with a fresh take, that incapsulates everything you love about story but doesn’t dumb it down with bad dialogue and bad acting, then this one was made for us.

Most TV-Shows with new and interesting storylines are destroyed by bad dialogue and with bad dialogue comes bad acting and with bad acting comes bad TV. This needs to change. TV companies who base their “hit shows” on formulas and “what works” are not what I look for is a show. If you want a show that pushes boundaries and tells a story that focuses on character and not plot, then this is for you. If you want a show that has heart and a romance that is true and natural, then this is for you. If you want a show that doesn’t feel like it has to get from point A to point B in order for point C to happen, then this is for you.

We as an audience don’t know what we want half the time. We scroll through Netflix, Amazon Prime and every subscription based steaming site for hours until we finally settle on the sitcom you have seen a thousand times because it is safe and comfortable. I try to watch the pilot of a show to check it out, but I am often disappointed by the acting or dialogue and the fact that they tell me, without showing me, the plot or thoughts of a character, eg. Riverdale. “The End of the F***ing World” doesn’t do this, and if it does then is definitely does it well. Dialogue and characters are what I look for in a TV show and why I judge then so hard.

If you are like me and agree with what i have said, then please see “End of the F***ing World, but if you are unsure about challenging your usual viewing experience then give it a go as well, you might enjoy it.

(IMDb censors naughty language, I have no problem with swearing). As much as I feel like killing myself for including “Young Adult” in my review’s headline, I don’t really know how else to describe this show. The End of the Fucking World almost effortlessly gave me a feeling that movies like Coming Through the Rye and The Perks of Being a Wallflower tried and ultimately failed to capture. The series puts a macabre spin on a fairly standard coming of age story without trying to be excessively edgy in order to appeal to Netflix’s predominantly tumblresque demographic. And for the most part, it does it very well.

The most immediate aspect of praise is the performance of Alex Lawther. I’ve seen him in X+Y, Black Mirror, and now TEotFW, and out of the three, this is his best performance. Even when the show was at its weakest, he managed to carry each of his scenes safely out of reach of my criticism. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for his co-star.

Very mild spoilers ahead, so if you have yet to watch even as little as the trailer, you may want to skip to the next paragraph.

Jessica Barden does fine if she isn’t instructed to do anything other than give off the personality of a moist piece of wood. She worked as a sociopathic and empty person who has lost their ability to give a fuck, but when it came to emoting, she not only dropped the proverbial ball, but somehow managed to deflate it in the process.

I have very few issues with the story, and none of them are worth mentioning in my review. My biggest problem with the show was just how unimaginative the production was. With the exception of the first episode, the show’s editing and cinematography were so unintentionally bland that despite only being about 3 hours long, it felt like a chore to watch. The End of the Fucking World suffers miserably from inconsistent pacing and poor editing decisions. I would’ve loved to see the production in the hands of someone like Edgar Wright, or Wes Anderson. People seem to have trouble grasping the concept that script originality isn’t enough to make your show unique, and no matter how good your story is, if you can’t tell it well it’s worthless. At that point you may as well read the fucking comic.

This is a decent show that is teetering between a 6 and a 7 for me, and I’m disappointed to have to leave it to the former. Before watching, I had stupidly set the show to a standard higher than I should have, and it saddens me to say this because it could have so easily been fantastic had the production been handed to a director who is not only more competent, but more TALENTED.
