Alyssa: Sometime, everything is suddenly really simple. It's like everything shifts in a moment. And you step out of your body, out of your life. You step out and you see where you are really clearly. You see yourself. And you think... Fuck. This. Shit.

Dark comedy has not seen the likes of "The End Of The F***ing World". So very very dark and funny. I was instantly hooked and even after completing the first episode I have no idea where it's going. These two characters are so unlike anything I've seen before. The juxtaposition of Alyssa's impulsive but trusting thought process with James' preoccupation with murdering her is completely insane. And, it works. Strong performances and quirky writing abound. I also enjoyed the funny jabs at the US. Looking forward to more!
