I have just watched a Netflix series The End of the F***ing World recommended to me by Veronika and it is f***ing brilliant.
This series is based on a comic book by Charles Forsman. It is only 8 episodes long and each one lasts for about 20 minutes – that makes it an easy short series to watch even if you have a busy schedule. I recommend you to watch it at once, however, because it will guarantee you a better experience. I promise. This way it can turn into an evening movie which will help you take your mind off things and relax. Or maybe not.
Because this is a series about a psychopath. He doesn’t have feelings nor conscience, he has killed many animals in his short life and he has counted every single one of them. But he wants more. Something bigger. Something that would give him the proper satisfaction.
That’s when she comes in. Rude, wild, untamed, wanting to revolt. She tells him she’s seen him skating (she has not). She tells him he’s shit. He says: “Fuck off.” And that’s how they meet. And that’s where it all begins – it takes one episode until they decide to f*ck it all and run away. She wants to get away from her family. He wants to kill her. She doesn’t know. And so the story begins.
I don’t want to spoil the rest of the series so I’ll just leave it there. But pretty scary and adventurous things happen afterwards and there is also a couple of these two cops who lighten the whole atmosphere.
This is the first story in my life that I would LOVE to write myself. And I am so sad that this whole idea didn’t occur to me because it is so freaking amazing I would just genuinely enjoy writing it so much. It fits my taste so perfectly.
This is a story about a boy who thinks of himself as a psychopath and a girl who wants to live her life to the fullest. But deep down, it is a story about two broken adolescent souls who are just trying to find themselves and figure their lives out.
This is a really creepy and very well-filmed series about childish naivety and innocence, about growing up, about love and death, hate and life. This is The End of the F***ing World. And you should go and watch it right now. Because you won’t regret it.
btw. there is a great British accent if you’re a weirdo like me and you think that there is no better sound on Earth than British people speaking
