The Squid Games is a series that once you start watching you’ll probably feel you must continue but why? There are just a few great actors and many of the characters are truly just black and white. Yes, the story has many twists and turns but so does one’s stomach after a roller coaster yet you don’t continually go on it. Why are we (including me) drawn to such a dark series with mass killings watched on almost every episode? Which begs the question if the Squid Games actually existed how many would actually see it for real? You might say every horror or action movie has many of the same scene’s but this series puts it together in a game over many hours. Maybe we can conclude we watch “The Squid Game” because even if “real life” seems dark the fiction is much darker.
Squid Game *** = It’s a tough call on the last star for some episodes really did drag and some of the actor’s roles should have been killed off much earlier but the shocks added that value to this show.
