Sordid Cinema Podcast #600: A Detailed Analysis of Squid Game

A deep dive explaining why Squid Game is so popular!

Squid Game Podcast Review

You might think we’re late with our review of Squid Game, but we swear, it was all by design. Now that the hype has whittled down, we decided to sit back and discuss the Netflix phenomenon and why we think Squid Game— despite its many flaws— is one of the best shows of 2021.

Squid Game has all the characteristics we love about Korean dramas including unexpected plot twists, over-the-top characters, and a story that grapples with economic anxieties and class struggles. It’s part horror and part dark comedy and boasts a catchy soundtrack and impeccable set design featuring candy-colored, high-concept dystopian sets that reflect how brutal South Korean society is toward the people at the bottom.

If you’re familiar with manga like Liar GameGambling Apocalypse: Kaiji, and Battle Royale, you know what to expect. Squid Game is all that and more!
