the end of the f***ing world: season 1 TV review - Aussieboyreviews
DOES THE END OF THE F***ING WORLD FEEL LIKE THE END OF THE F***ING WORLD?
There’s no doubt that this crime-themed teen series feels like the end of the f***ing world. It’s not for kids due to explicit language, sexual references and violence.
After 17-year-old James, a teenage boy who’s pretty sure he’s a psychopath, meets 17-year-old Alyssa, the new girl at school, they embark on a journey in search of Alyssa’s real father.

Aussie boy's thoughts
The direction the crude crime spree heads in leaves you feeling like it really is the end of the f***ing world. Despite how unexpectedly flat the events turn out during the last amount of episodes, The End of the F***ing World is an entertaining, darkly amusing and free-falling comedy series that’s really focused on teens’ freedom through an ominous world. It’s targeted for mature teens due to the typical teenage elements you witness in every maturely rated coming-of-age tale, but is appealing and logical in its criminal sense.
