All Critics (51) | Top Critics (12)

It's a jet-black premise, handled with a light touch.

No matter how you take the ending, each interpretation carries significance, which is exactly what the creator intended.

...an enjoyable enough slice of sardonic misanthropy.

Jan 7, 2018 | Full Review…

... a surprising tour de force...

Jan 5, 2018 | Full Review…

The End of the F***ing World proves to be a tight, striking dramedy that reminds us of the crazy, scary old days.

Oct 7, 2019 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

The series is so indie in its style and format as it is flat and superficial. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jul 31, 2019 | Full Review…

The End of the F***ing World is an astonishing use of the streaming serialized format and a near perfect adaptation of Charles S. Forsman micro-comics.

Mar 27, 2019 | Rating: 9.5/10 | Full Review…

The End of The F***cking World is, at its heart, a black comedy and directors Jonathan Entwhistle and Lucy Tcherniak are masters of employing humour to talk about these dark topics, without diminishing the importance of them.

Mar 8, 2019 | Full Review…

It's a show that makes viewers care about its screwed-up, unlikable leads, and it depicts teenage misanthropy and being on the cusp of adulthood in a thought-provoking way.

Dec 20, 2018 | Full Review…

Both Lawther and Barden capture that nihilism of adolescence, their performances are pitched just right and their chemistry works.

Dec 13, 2018 | Full Review…

If you choose to follow James and Allysa on their journey, lean into the black comedy and let it swallow you up. You'll be much more satisfied if you do.

Oct 10, 2018 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

With a certain 'indie' and black comedy tone and a groundbreaking premise, this British series follows in eight brief chapters the odyssey of two young people and their path of personal discovery. [Full Review in Spanish]

    I loved It, I binged it all in one day. This has to be my new favorite show. James transformation from psychotic maniac to a soft protecting normal dude is so smooth and good. It was funny, climactic, and dramatic.

    It is a comedy. But it is not fun.

    A dark show with a nihilistic approach that finds its way as a successful British dark comedy. Even if the characters are extremely odd, they are so relatable.

    This whole season with it's writing and cinematography felt like a punch to the face but in a good way... I think in this case Netflix made the right choice to not go with the completley same story as the comic. The cinematography in this is just amazing and a lot better than most Netflix series at this time. Of course the actors were suprisihngly good and they really sold the story.

    This show was AMAZING. although dark.

    Another teenage angst show to trip on, which is one of the best on Netflix! My rating: 9.7/10 IMDb 8.1/10 The end of the F***ing World, a british dark comedy-drama series, first season which aired in Oct 2017 and the final (sadly) released in November 2019, which is based on a graphic novel by Charles Forsman. This unique show mainly focuses on the quirkiness and authencity of the characters than the entire content or story which is brilliant again on another level. I must say what astonishing actors these two 17 years old, James and Alyssa who have played their roles so effortlessly and exceptionally good. The most mind boggling thing is when you begin watching the show you judge the characters by what they think and say they are but towards the end of the show you smile for what they turn out to be which is startling. The show starts weirdly and you wouldn't know what to expect, but eventually you will find yourself engaged to it, falling in love with the awkward yet so real characters of the show. There are only 8 episodes each season which lasts only 25 min each. I personally love the nature of the characters especially Alyssa with rapid mood swings, for being so straightforward, honest, not so innocent but having the purest souls who think there is something wrong with them. The best part of this series is the dark humor, which arrives in the bleakest moments, unexpectedly, which makes you laugh out loud literally. And also the happy ending which is perfect leaving you with the broadest smile. It has it's own funny, dramatic, really suspenseful and really touching moments. A complete package of emotions, this show is about the journey of two confused teenagers who try to find an escape from their homes with unclear motives which gradually leads them to exploring themself and have a connection.
