The End of the F***ing World

After almost two years of waiting, season two of Netflix’s adaptation of Charles Forsman’s comic book series about a teen psychopath (or is he?) and the girl he wants to kill (or does he?) is HERE. If you haven’t seen the first season, it’s worth a watch. With only eight twenty to thirty minute episodes a season, you can knock it out in a day (I did). If, like me, you have seen season one but kinda forgot most things about it except for the fact that you enjoyed it, I am here to help. The first thing I forgot about that I shouldn’t have is the music. Instead of pairing action sequences with tense instrumental music, TEOTFW creators have curated a soundtrack comprised of doo-wop, classic rock, country, and soul music. Season two opens with a creepy gas station scene accompanied by soul singer Nancy Wilson’s 1964 track “(You Don’t Know) How Glad I Am.” The contrast immediately reminds you of the show’s incredible tension between its teenagers-trying-to-figure-out-how-to-have-feelings plotline and the show’s gory violence. AND everyone in it is British. The End of the F***king World is on Netflix now! Watch it. You’re welcome.
