Their crime spree becomes a roadmap to a kind of emancipation; freedom from the confines of the personas they had built for themselves when nobody cared to listen to who they really were.

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

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

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.

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.

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.
December 13, 2018
Both Lawther and Barden capture that nihilism of adolescence, their performances are pitched just right and their chemistry works.
October 10, 2018
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.

You're no longer watching Dexter Jr., but a f***ed-up teen love story sans the clich six-packs and twee romances.

If you have four hours to spare, the show is worth watching.
April 12, 2018
Tightly put together, brilliantly balancing black humor with just the right amount of dramatic pathos.
March 13, 2018
Blackly and bleakly comic in parts, this adaptation of a graphic novel had grand scripting, production, filming, locations and the rest, but all were utterly outshone by the two young leads.
March 12, 2018
The End of the F***ing World is a crime drama and a teenage road trip story, but above both of those things, it's an ode to the tenderness and fragility of human connection. It's about what people mean to each other.
March 9, 2018
The surprisingly effective British show is one of 2018's earliest surprises.
March 2, 2018
While the two protagonists pretend to care about nothing, it's remarkable the ways we start to care about them. For all its attitude, F***ing World is ultimately very sweet.

It's probably the best cute meet in rom com history - except rom coms are movies.

End has the edge in writing, acting -- especially by Ms. Barden -- and ambition.
