The End of the F***ing World (Season 1)

Imagine if Wes Anderson decided to remake Bonnie & Clyde after binge-watching Skins and you’ll get a rough idea of what you’re in for with The End of the F***ing World. Slightly misleading title aside (despite the hardly upbeat tone, no actual apocalypses are involved), this British pitch black comedy sees two maladjusted teenagers – she’s an impulsive rebel, he’s a closet serial-killer in the making – embark on a road trip to escape their disenfranchised existence. Expect whip-smart interior monologues and earnest soul-searching coupled with the odd burst of blood-soaked violence and a hefty wallop of gallows humour. It’s that kind of show.

Verdict: 4/5

Where to find it: 4oD, Netflix;
