The End: Season 1 (2020)


Season 1
The End

Critics Consensus

The End's cynical take on life and death may not be as deep as it thinks itself to be, but sharp performances and a few genuinely surprising insights almost make up for it.

Audience Reviews for The End: Season 1

    The show has received many bad reviews. However, I like it very much. looking forward to seeing it again.

    Thoroughly enjoyed the refreshing and honest look of old age and all its issues. But the audience is too fast. Who are they trying to appeal to? Too much going on. Why have a cattle dog kill a possum? Bloody and senseless, no need for it, why have city people got a damn cattle dog anyway, they are never home. And why appeal to the elderly and then scare poor old grandma off with the oral sex and the anal sex. Is there really the need to have such explicit scenes? This series is a bit over the top but I will still keep watching past the four episodes... with the fast forward button ready.

    Too much going on - like they are trying too hard to fit every scenario they could think of included & be so ‘out there'. Not a fan yet after 4 episodes - will give it a few more & see what happens.

    So refreshing to find a well written, well acted, well directed, well filmed series which beautifully entertains without shying away from a plethora of 'delicate' subjects. It seems that nothing is taboo here! Wonderful that the main characters are played by females too. There is something for everyone to learn here but there is no didactic element; all the themes which reflect contemporary issues knit themselves easily into the storyline. One of the themes is euthanasia and I find it so incredibly brave to addresss such a controversial topic with such candour and raw truth. The series could have been pretty dark, but there is much humour here - just the right amount to counteract the challenging and sometimes uncomfortable subject matter. Brilliant stuff. Five stars in every way.

    Beautiful and confronting. Harriet Walter is BAFTA worthy.
