Squid game, over hyped or worth it?

This weekend I binged Squid games with @katiolus and I was really worried that this would be just a super over-hyped tv series. Well, my verdict is that I really really liked it!

It's amazing how we all can fall in love in a TV series in a foreign language, no famous actors etc. The squid game really shows us that the most important is the story. And here it's presented amazingly

Overhyped. Story and character choices were unrealistic, violence and constant headshots each episdoe were just exploitive and didn't add to story. After every episode I felt depressed by the end. I waded through it thinking that there would be something redeeming eventually as it was #1 on netflix, but it was a false hope. For those who haven't seen it, I guarantee you can find something better to watch.

After every episode I felt depressed by the end.

I think this is what made the show what it is. They didn't find a way to maneuver things into the happy ending that a lot of shows do, instead of giving me the sad truth that I thought wouldn't happen, but it does.

Perhaps that is why I didn't enjoy it: in each episode I anticipated the unhappy ending so I found the show very predictable.

That's very true!

Interesting view!
