Critic Reviews for The End of the F***ing World Series 1

All Critics (50) | 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.

Top Critic enjoyable enough slice of sardonic misanthropy.

... a surprising tour de force...

Jan 5, 2018 | 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.

Audience Reviews for The End of the F***ing World: Series 1

  • 3d ago
    The End of the F***ing World manages to cram buckets of incredibly entertaining storytelling into a 3-hour runtime.

    loved it she loves him he wants to kill her their is nothing to hate here it is really funny and intense cant wait for season 2

    Thrift shop, music, road trip, quite aesthetic and soothing to watch. Two kids get traumatised by life and by how disgusting and fake people are. It is probably a series that doesn't need more episodes although we really want it to.
  • Jun 03, 2019
    This off-kilter dark comedy appeals to audiences ferreting for fringe and effervescent entertainment. Though visually austere, the script is raw and unfiltered which satiates needed cravings for more visceral and unabashed television. Hopefully the second season spoon feeds us with as much mirth and jubilance as the first, which if it does will be a divine maelstrom.

    It Is Really The End Of The World
  • May 04, 2019
    With just eight episodes and 20 minutes for each episode, this series is so sensational yet clumsy. A feeling where you don't really understand why and what. "The End of the F***ing World" is indeed a weird title. The oddity was what makes it unique from the coming-of-age story in general. Although the ending comes from an interpretation of everyone, would this series be made its second season? But on the other hand, rather bad later if forced quickly. This road trip-called adventure later became a love story in the form of two nihilism people. They were very fond of messing around.

    A funny yet deep series that makes running away from home seem a lot darker - and more realistic - than usually portrayed. The characters are genuine and in conflict with themselves, and you can't help but root for them.
  • Apr 08, 2019
    Exceptional. Refreshingly short episodes that convey an offbeat, yet utterly engaging story. Equal parts hilarious and poignant, with adept performances from the two young leads. A must watch.

    Accompanied with the 40s background music and the black comedy tone , this British show follows in eight 20-minute chapters that creates a band between the two character, James and Alyssa, to their wicked but intriguing journey.

    Amazing. Perfect lighting, fantastic story, interesting writing with very little exposition, and the inner monologues are not overbearing. Everything I could have asked for regarding a netflix series. I'm probably going to watch it again.
