This is a Netflix original TV show. 1 season, 8 episodes, each around 20 minutes long.
As I’m writing this, I’ve watched the show 4 times and can recite every line. By the time I post this, I’m sure I’ve watched this show more times.
It takes a lot for me to enjoy a show and actually finish it. This is my absolute favorite.
I saw it on the front page of Netflix as a recommended show at the beginning of January. The day I found it was the second day it was even on Netflix.
Summary: James and Alyssa are 17 years old, bored with where they live, and hate their parents. James believes he’s a psychopath and wants to kill Alyssa. Alyssa wants to run away from home. They embark on a road trip together and get into some trouble along the way.
I won’t spoil anything about the TV show because I want to encourage ya’ll to go watch it yourselves- especially since it’s so short.
I love this show so much. The dark sarcastic humor is something I can relate to. Murder interests me in a non creepy way. I love road trips, and I have a dream of going on one with a boy. Romance is so much to me, especially small little gestures that are showcased in this show. James (or Alex Lawther) is literally my type. A quiet, shy boy who’s skinny and looks nerdy.
So overall, this show was basically made for me. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea because it’s very dark, but it’s my fave thing ever.
