Based on a graphic novel of the same name by Charles S. Forsman The End Of The F***ing World was adapted to television by Jonathan Entwistle & Lucy Tchernak.
As Alyssa tries to claw her way back to a semblance of a normal life, a brooding young woman newly released from prison named Bonnie sets out to avenge the death of her lover.
James and Alyssa’s road trip that ended in a national manhunt, a burned car, a gas station robbery, and James getting shot.
The first episode threw me off at first but it was so brilliant, it pushed the story forward and gave some sense to the second season.
They kept the show dark and weird.
The acting is still top notch, that scene when James is in the car with Alyssa fit the first time, his face tells you everything you need to know about how he feels. Lawther and Barden’s performances are so nuanced, it becomes truer when you’ve just watch the first season. Naomi Ackie’s is a perfect addition to the cast, kind of intense and as nuanced as the rest of the cast.
Episode 4 was a bit of a curve ball for me, whether because of James’ revelation – that I didn’t see coming – or Bonnie. I also love how Alyssa and James’ dynamic has evolved and the way it still the same.
