Finally watched the overhyped show. But was it worth it? Thats the question! Let me just say, it was really damn entertaining and addicting. Some episodes were so so good especially episodes 3 to 7. Unfortunately the last 2 episodes were not quite as entertaining as the last 4! However I liked the twists and agree that this was definitely worth watching! My favorite character was hands down the antagonist (the strongest one/the bully)! He made the show so much more unpredictable and exciting!!! Spoiler alert: I also loved the way the crazy lady exacted her revenge! I can see they have already set up the ending for a sequel, which is sad coz I think the show could have ended with the lead realising that money isnt everything. Absolutely adored the old guy! Heartbroken that Ali died, andddd seriously Sang ho killin himself at the end after walking over all those people was pathetic, I kinda wanted him to unleash his demon and have one last attempt at stabbing the lead in the back (sorry i just cannot remember all the korean names 😅) My favoriteeee game was hands down the tempered glass one and tug of war! All in all this was definitely a great watch!!!

Finally finished! What a ride and a truly decent chunk of TV. Great obsidian black tone, incredibly uncomfortable but not in a typical horror sense, more from the perspective of how real the characters reactions feel. Like all good shockers you (may) eventually experience the same numbness and detachment from reality as the characters and you share their individual focuses and story arcs. I gotta say the ending was a bit of wobble for me, which put a bit of a damp squib on the whole thing, and generally left me kinda meh about a second season, but previous to that I was talking at the TV to the characters, so I was INVESTED. I personally would have loved a single season JUGGERNAUT of a show, but money gotta be made I guess 🤷 Highly recommend watching the whole thing with original audio and English subs, worth the effort to have the original actors do their brilliant best.

Well let the game begins then ! I really felt that this show deserved all it's hype, and it seriously so so worth every bit of it. What a human mind thinks and does when it fell into the circumstances of dying, it's the survival game, the fittest one is the one who lives and will eventually win. Their are so much emotions placed into the show, from the intant instincts to what to withdraw from the current scenario based on what the possibility of winning the next game will depend. The OMFG! How the whole concept of the show was written and made it into the reality, from the costume design and the set (believe me it was just beautiful) seriously I fell into that trap, surely you would too, it's that great. The show is filled with action scenes and some explicit and horrifying scenes too, so watch as per your measure. The show begins at a pace of a very slow starting to just building the narrative, and the characters and their backstory, which you will love and feel bored while watching it, but the creators of the show had got you there too, you just couldn't feel bored, because in every slow scenes the music and the perfectly mixed soundscore will keep you hooked back into where it is. Seriously this one's very great show. Do not miss it, you're gonna love it. I'm really excited to see what the next season would be like, if there will be any.

Not flawless but I love the symbols and colors and crazy staircases and all of that production design so so much. Acting is great too. So many powerful scenes, both happy and devastating. Not entirely sure how I felt about the ending but it didn't ruin the series either way and that's key. Will probably watch again, which I rarely say about shows after watching.

Addictive, good, but nothing special. Hunger games in Korea, but the main actor is less attractive? Very sinister and gory. Not for faint hearted

jumped on the bandwagon and was NOT disappointed. an intense series that had me feeling ALL the emotions. I’m certain it would have been an even better experience if I spoke korean though, feel as though i’m missing out somewhat

Action packed and anxiety inducing episodes! Ending fell short and was a lot slower paced then previous episodes.

Me gusta el concepto, no me encantan los personajes ni menos el protagonista, que me resulta irritante. Solo se salva Kang Sae-byeok. Me recuerda a Saw, pero menos gore y menos psicológica. Sobrevalorada, probablemente la vea mucha gente solo porque se ha hecho viral, al menos no tiene muchos capítulos.

Squid Game's unflinching brutality is not for the faint of heart, but sharp social commentary and a surprisingly tender core will keep viewers glued to the screen - even if it's while watching between their fingers.

Squid Game 🦑 is thrilling, tense, deep, emotional and raw throughout. The concept is brutal & violent in nature and portrays humanity in a very dark light indeed. Some of the decisions made by contestants through the series leave you as the viewer contemplating their actions and whether you would of done things differently dependant on the situation. This leaves you heavily involved in the show and characters, second guessing certain actions and consequences. If you can - avoid the english translation and opt for true audio with subtitles. Great work and a very enjoyable experience 👏🏻. Get the 🍿 ready for this intense TV series.

I feel like it would have been a 10 if I watched it in Korean, I’ve heard a lot of it gets left out character development wise by watching it in English

Took me a while to get past the voice overs for English, but the story and acting was well done. It was jarring at times to see the brutality interlaced with children's games. Story and character development was well done.

Really enjoyed the story but thought the violence was scary. Wasn’t expecting the ending and found myself invested in the characters.

Mostly predictable but Really good all the way to the end. They did the most obvious “it’s a hit let’s leave the possibility of more episodes open” finale. Overall good acting and story.
