Squid Game Squid Game Squid Game we all are hearing about this shows. So how good is this show and should you watch this show. So we have review this shows so that you can judge whether its worth watching or not.
At a time when the television industry is giving out rom-coms and supernatural thrillers, it is a fresh experience to watch a show that is not only unique but also has an intriguing plot that keeps the audience hooked.
The character development and the story arc of each and every character is beautifully developed while also keeping the initial plot of the show very strong, and extremely suspenseful. There will be times when the viewers will want someone to die, and there will be times when the viewers will pray not to kill certain characters.
But the plot is so full of twists and turns that we may not even expect what happens next, as everything happens within seconds.
Before watching the show, we give a trigger warning as there is a lot of blood bath, and the scenes are too gory to watch sometimes, such as aa surgery, or disgusting dead bodies.
We also warn the language as there are a lot of f-bombs and b-words, and talking about intimate sex scenes, there is just one and you don’t need to worry about it.
The production is huge and the props used in the show are very well amazingly made. Especially the game of crossing the bridge is so well executed that you will be at the edge of the seat.
Talking about the negative aspects, we found that the character of Hwang Jun-ho, doesn’t have much of the story arc that is needed. Also, we never understand the motive of the ending and if it is a cliffhanger for the second season.
The episode where the players play the marbles, seems to have a slightly poor execution, as the background characters don’t show the intensity and fear needed while playing the game.
Overall, it is an amazing show and something fresh that we all will enjoy. We rate it ⅘.
