    Galaxy When I'm fxcked up, that's the real me

    Oct 10, 2021
    I'm a little surprised there isn't a thread for this show already. I searched and saw there were people posting about it in the "what are you watching" thread but the show has blown up so high it definitely deserves its own thread

    this show is great but it is also really f----- up. I hope there is a season 2. Although season 1 ended with the main character "winning," the show did a good job of having me guess who really was gonna make it to the end. I didn't think it was gonna be Gi-hun. Every featured character felt almost as important as him, except maybe Deok-su & Mi-nyeo.

    The cop character, Jun-ho for a while I thought he could still be alive after his brother shot him into the sea, but after the text on the screen said "one year later" I started thinking that it'd be impossible to reveal he's still alive if a year passed and nothing was heard from him. That must also mean all of his pictures and videos never went through to the police station either.

    Also, season 2 will presumably have an all new cast of contestants, but justice needs to be made for the families of the dead characters. Sure Gi-hun keeps his promise to Sae-byeok, but what does Sang-woo's mom do about her son being dead? Did she already find out and go through the grieving process? What does Ali's wife do about his death? Will she ever find out or go looking?

    And Il-nam, there has to be something more about him putting this evil game together with all those other (white?) billionaires. I heard a rumor that he might in fact be Gi-hun's real father, but I heard another rumor that season 2 will focus more on the employees of the Squid game instead of the contestants, and that oughta be interesting since the guys in the red suits obviously ain't living the life either.

    I also wonder if their masks are a reference to playstation. O, triangle, square, the only thing missing was X. Although there was the X in the second episode when everyone was voting to leave or die.

    Racist show. Of course they made the black guy die like a fool. So overboard the only thing that was missing is that he would have ate a banana while getting shot

    Yes pakistani still somewhat black so they have someone there so they can’t get canceled from BLM. Look how he was in the series. A dumb MFer he trusted a more supreme ethnicity and got f-----. Read somewhere that they wanted to imply that black people are dumb like monkeys.
    I can’t believe that they are going away with thus

    Great show for 5 or so episodes but the last few episodes were very underwhelming. The writing got sloppy and the "VIP's" were laughably bad, they sounded like characters from a ps2 game lol

    S2 feels like a cash grab and nothing more.

    I think this is the best Netflix show this year

    This, Invencible on Prime, Wandavision on Disney and Mare Of Easttown on HBO are the only shows I enjoyed this year.

    Netflix having a terrible year, so much forgettable stuff.

    I don't think it's too impossible. Front Man will surely pull off some fuckery and help his bro out.

    yeah, that is a good theory. I can certainly see a scene like "if you weren't my brother, you'd be a dead cop so here is my last warning don't get in my way" etc something along those lines

    or it could just be that he's a highly efficient cop and somehow was able to get away with that shoulder wound and went into hiding. he did of course infiltrate the game facility all on his own. the first time I watched it, I really thought he would get caught while he was still there, but he managed to get away - at least off the island before he got caught.

    I liked it but there were definitely some fucky parts in the last few episodes. I hope season 2 is good

    wish the op didn't ruin the end of season 1 just a couple lines in but oh well, should've known and wasn't that into it anyways..the dubbing is awful, i'm only halfway through episode 2. might not even bother now.

    It's alright but not as into it as everyone else, so far at least.
