“I’m James. I’m 17. And I’m pretty sure I’m a psychopath.”
Those words highlight Episode 1 of this eight-part Netflix show, and it’s all pretty solid from there.
17-year-old James (Alex Lawther) is a self-diagnosed psychopath who has killed cats and other animals and is now ready to move onto a bigger target: Humans. His first target? Alyssa.
Meanwhile, Alyssa (Jessica Barden) is a little nuts herself, but mostly just a regular teenager, living with her stepdad who doesn’t want her and she just wants a regular boyfriend. Her first target? James.
This R-Rated show is the struggle between wanting family and to kill, and the struggle of being alone vs. being wanted. A lot of the show happens in their heads as they contemplate these struggles and what they really want.
End of the World gets a very weird 8 out of 10, but by the time it ends it’s crazy enough that you want a second season of it.

couldn’t even get through the first two episodes to much for me. who ever wrote this has some issues.
Likely true…but don’t most artists have something off to them?
yes, but their is something about watching a psychopath that is very off putting. plotting to kill an innocent person. and don’t gt me started on the bathroom scene in the diner i mean WTH. I will say it keeps you on your toes i just cant bare to watch.
If that’s what is stopping you from watching (him being a psychopath who wants to kill someone), then I would say keep watching and it gets better.
what does he have a change of heart. i don’t think a psychopath can change their ways do u ?
Without spoiling anything…what if he just thinks he’s a psychopath?
well i’m not sure if u can think u are a psychopath i guess i will have to watch to find out.
It’s definitely a weird show, but it’s enjoyable.
I guess everyone has their opinion, but I find it disturbing.
