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.

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]

You're no longer watching Dexter Jr., but a f***ed-up teen love story sans the cliché six-packs and twee romances.
June 26, 2018
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 8, 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.
February 23, 2018
It's probably the best cute meet in rom com history - except rom coms are movies.
February 15, 2018
End has the edge in writing, acting -- especially by Ms. Barden -- and ambition.
January 30, 2018
A bleak as it is beautiful.
January 29, 2018
At once a joyful watch and a morally destabilizing one...The End of the F***ing World evolves into something much rarer, a convincing teen-age romance.
January 25, 2018
A second season is promised, and based on how this one ends I have no idea how they're going to pull that off. But I'll be there.

TEOTFW offers everything you want out of a good teen flick: Two kids against the world, a ride-or-die road trip, a sing-along-worthy soundtrack, actual complex teen characters - all dealt with in a mature way.
January 16, 2018
The characters' existential crises are faced with deadpan humor, as well as the softness that accompanies young love.
January 16, 2018
The likeability factor of TEOTFW, as far as I'm concerned, is nigh zero on paper, but it's astronomical onscreen. I'm genuinely excited to see where it goes.

It's not until the end that Entwistle's master plan truly comes to light, as he makes the case for using various emotional storytelling devices to get across the same message: relationships are scary.

It's a jet-black premise, handled with a light touch.
January 11, 2018
James and Alyssa could easily come across as extremely irritating and to some, the mannered performances might be off-putting, but Lawther and Barden are so engaging that their dysfunctional love story carries a surprising amount of emotional weight.
