When we sit back and tell our grandchildren about the craziest of our lives many things will top the list. A TV celeb as President, memes on memes on memes and of course all the bingeworthy shows we wasted our lives away with.
From Making A Murderer to Orange Is The New Black, we can’t get enough of our Netflix Originals and it looks like we have another one taking off…fast. I mean I’d seen some of my Facebook friends post about it, but I had no clue how big it was it started going viral.
What show is it? It’s called “The End of the F**king World” and it’s based on a graphic novel by Charles Forsman. The brief synopsis on Rotten Tomatoes reads, “A darkly comic road trip tale about two confused teen outsiders.”
It’s so good in fact, even Netflix’s CEO is gushing over it. He said in a Facebook post, “Wow new show. Most engaging addictive original wild show in a long time. Crazy good. Two teens searching. Watch!”
Check out the trailer below…but keep reading because somehow it gets better…
If that didn’t have you on the edge of your seat…maybe you’re dead? Check your pulse and get back to me. Now for everyone else guess what?
This show has 100% on Rotten Tomatoes!
To put that into context here are a couple other Netflix hits scores on Rotten Tomatoes:
House Of Cards – 81%
Orange Is The New Black – 91%
Making A Murderer – 98%
Stranger Things – 94%
Mindhunter – 96%
Bojack Horseman – 89%
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt – 97%
Of course there’s more but all of these shows are hits…and The End of the F**king World is rated higher than all of them on the Tomatometer.
If that didn’t impress you take a look at some of these review excerpts.
“No matter how you take the ending, each interpretation carries significance, which is exactly what the creator intended” – Ben Travers, indieWire
“What this one season accomplishes is something truly impressive: an ironic romance that blossoms into a real one without ever feeling like a betrayal of its authentic, misanthropic self.” – Alison Herman, The Ringer
The title tells us pretty clearly that this show won’t have a happy ending. But even in its tragic moments, there are still glimmers of loveliness in The End of the F***ing World. You just have to be patient, and watch closely, to fully see them. – Jen Chaney, New York Magazine/Vulture
And my particularly favorite review that urges us to binge on…
The twisted, efficient story that The End of the F***ing World tells is a nicely contained thing that requires no additional embellishment and it should be binged and cherished in its tart glory. – Dan Fienberg, Hollywood Reporter
So are you convinced?!
If you aren’t, the best part of this whole thing, at least to my dumb millennial brain is that the episodes are only 22 minutes long. There’s only eight episodes so sit down with the special someone (that you may want to kill) and binge this dang show!
