    As a lot of you I’m sure have noticed, this show has been the talk of the town since its release and has now cemented its top spot on Netflix. Honestly, I was hesitant about giving this a go. Big fan of Battle Royale and Fall Guys but I feel the survival-themed shows have been a bit overdone.

    Held out as long until I had some close friends hitting me up and the begging was getting ridiculous. Binged all 9 episodes yesterday and lemme say…folks, the hype is real. Not only did it exceed my expectations, it is hands down, the best show of the year.

    To those out there that haven’t yet, watch it and report back.

    For those who’ve watched, your thoughts?

    Ali was my fave

    A little bit of Magic never hurt anybody.

    Not sure if it’s worth that much hype but this was legit good and addictive. Would have been better with a less annoying main character, though.

    This show is incredible. I’m on my second rewatch in a week. If there’s any justice there’ll be Emmy nominatons galore.

    Is it eligible for American industry awards, or just International Emmys?

    We had a lengthy discussion on one of the other threads about this, and the end result was only if it is produced and not just distributed by Netflix (I believe it is the latter, but it’s a bit hard to tell). Being international doesn’t immediately discount it. Shows that qualify for both need to chose one.

    In any case it’s eligible for the US Emmys, I’m already rooting for Yeong-su Oh to win supporting actor. Fantastic performance from start to finish. The show is extremely bingeable and yes, out of the most watched TV shows from Netflix it’s easily the best one.

    I enjoyed a lot more than I thought after the medriocre first episode. There were some really strong episodes, scenes, performances, impressive moments. In resume, Episode 2-6 were a great run, with some flaws, but very entertaining.

    But I need to say that the VIP scenes in episode 7 was one of the worst things I ever watched.

    What a great series!  How can you not be completely obsessed while watching this? This is the bloodsport/battle royale that finally fulfilled the premise’s potential.

    My only disappointment is that I was not familiar with.. that actor that was revealed.  Apparently he’s a huge star so that must have been a great revelation.

    It’s true that Squid Game temporarily morphed into The Room whenever the VIPs were on screen, but, they were not important characters, so, not gonna sweat it that much.   Everything else was wonderfully executed.  Loved the acting, the directing, and, more than anything else it was a triumph of writing IMO.

    Completely agree. And the art direction/set decoration – *chef’s kiss*

    For those who’ve seen it, do you think inherently it exists as limited (or anthology if they did a second season)? Do you thin the structure actually make it eligible for drama? (I am split on this)

    Damn, they did my boy Ali dirty.

    Great series overall. I thought the first few episodes were mediocre but I got really invested into it later on. Super excited to hear the frontman’s back story.
