Music Monday is a weekly meme by Drew @ The Tattooed Book Geek
Although I am pulling away from watching TV series, there is one I am glad I saw. If you haven’t seen The End of the F***ing World, make sure you do. It is quite simply one of the best things I have ever seen on TV. The first couple of episodes have some bumpy moments (I can’t bear seeing animal cruelty or uncalled for rudeness to service staff… you’ll see what I mean) that can be stressful to watch but stick with it, as these bits are key to demonstrating the mental state of the main characters and they contrast with later behaviour.
The ending of the first series actually made me cry, and I swore I would never watch TV again, I was THAT heartbroken. I also had a feeling I would never see anything so perfect again. How thrilled I was to discover a second series, which meant that not only had one of the main characters actually survived but also that there was more of it. I also discovered that there is something out there even more brilliant than The End of the F***ing World, series 1, and that’s The End of the F***ing World series 2. I do hope they stop at 2 though, as the ending was pitch perfect.
Everything about it is good. The storyline, the acting, the script, the visuals, and the frankly magnificent soundtrack. I now have the soundtrack and have been listening to it regularly for some months now. Most of it comprised of original songs by Blur’s Graham Coxon, it really is wonderful. This is just one of the songs but there are plenty of gems on there.
Graham Coxon In My Room – The End of the F***ing World (Original Songs and Score)
Outside the windows, they’re singing Inside the doorway, there’s me Endlessly thinking, working. In my room. I can’t share the joy, sharing. Can’t share the wine that they drink. I stand by the window, just watching. From my room Outside the window, they laughing. Inside the doorway, Constantly thinking, but working In my room In my room
