is such an amazing show!
Here is the trailer –
Thanks to Netflix for hosting their own video.
The show is only eight episodes and all of them are amazing! The last episode makes me want another season but I doubt we’re getting one.
What really blew me away, besides the stellar performances of Alex Lawther and Jessica Barden, is the amazing soundtrack of the show has!
This website goes into more details about the 33 songs used in the show –
The show is very British and I couldn’t stop thinking about that, as they drive cars and always getting on the wrong side of it and their steering wheels are wrong too! I kid, I kid but I kept noticing it as the characters do drive for a bit.
Alex Lawther plays James and Jessica Barden plays Alyssa.
The show is based on a comic by Charles S. Forsman.
Thanks to Fantagraphics Books Inc. for hosting their own video regarding the book.
I’ve added the book to my wife’s Amazon list so maybe I’ll get it, one of these days.
The two cops are amazing and I really liked their chemistry too.
I like how the show can be broken down to three plots or scenes: Where it starts, when they get to the house and the aftermath. I probably could rewatch the show and get more of a two episode breakdown, as I bet every two episodes work as a chapter but maybe it doesn’t quite neatly fit into that, as well.
Vulture goes into detail about the differences between the book and the show. The comic sounds even more intense (which makes sense) and covers more space, which also makes sense. I should really check it out. Amazon had a hardcover for only $15, which seems very reasonable.
Here is the list of all of Charles Forsman’s books, I sadly don’t recognize any of them.
As I’m still obsessed with TV Tropes, here is their page too –
I’m not sure how else I can convince you fine people to check out the show but each episode is between twenty to twenty-two minutes but move so quickly that I had saw the first three before realizing I was already almost halfway done with the show.
I found this video last night –
Thanks to YouTuber GossipVal1 for hosting the video.
I found several other fun tribute videos but I went back to this one at the end. Such an interesting couple and the show lends itself to so many great songs!
