What did you think of Squid Game? I have to admit I was hooked very early on, especially with the first game. I will never be able to hear anyone say, ‘Green Light, Red Light’ ever again without getting creeped out. I have heard some people say that the series is a ‘Hunger Games’ rip-off but I do not see that at all. In ‘Squid Game’ the people voluntarily went into the games whereas the kids/people in the ‘HG’ part of a required way of living, if you will. People were mandated to participate in those games.
While some of the acting was a little over the top at times, granted I was watching the Korean version dubbed in English and so sometimes the facial expressions were not quite in synch with the sentences thus possibly playing a part in my criticism, it was still a great series. It definitely kept me on the edge of my seat, especially at game time. I definitely made connections with some of the characters and felt for them, especially that of the lead actor. He was selfish at first but deep down was a good person and I am so glad I was able to see that part come out as time went on. But the ending – I am ok with it but am still wondering if there could not have been something a little more exciting to bring the series to a close.
