Quick-fire round: The End of the Fucking World (Season 2)

We saw the true nature of both lead characters play out in full during the first season, so what did this season bring to keep us engaged? Not a lot, really.

A new character and perhaps the only interesting thing about this season

The thing that attracted me to the original season of this show was the insane premise – a boy who meets a girl and plans to kill her. Thing is, we know that’s not happening now. We know he likes her, and we know he’s not really all that psychopathic. The ending to the first season was quite epic. At the time, I really wanted a second season. But in hindsight, they really could have just left it there.

The show tries to keep the story alive by introducing a newly psychopathic character. But it all loops back to the same story, and the side plots are quite weak. The show felt very slow-moving, even for half-hour episodes.

You’ll no doubt have watched this already if you were a die-hard fan of the first season. If you’re new to the series – give the first one a watch, I highly recommend it. But you can stop it there.
