Squid Game {Netflix} #1: Let the games begin!



Seong Gi-hun, a divorced and indebted chauffeur, is invited to play a series of children's games for a chance at a large cash prize. Accepting the offer, he is taken to an unknown location where he finds himself among 455 other players who are also deeply in debt. The players are made to wear green tracksuits and are kept under watch at all times by masked guards in pink jumpsuits, with the games overseen by the Front Man, who wears a black mask and black uniform. The players soon discover that losing a game results in their death, with each death adding ₩100 million to the potential ₩45.6 billion grand prize.[a] Gi-hun allies with other players, including his childhood friend Cho Sang-woo, to try to survive the physical and psychological twists of the games.

I think I heard there wasn't supposed to be, but I think they left enough of a cliffhanger there could be. I was interested more in the group of people running the game

Oh ok.. but yeah that ending leaves the door open.

Yeah it's always interesting to see how people being so rich can also be twisted/morbid, but I was shocked to learn "The Front Man" turned out to be the cops brother like why'd he join since he won the game himself, need backstory on that. I did know the old man was behind the whole thing it became clear very early he was. which is why I want a s2 so much more they can do.

my favorite characters were Gi-Hun and Ali.. Gi-Hun finding his mother was the saddest moment for me, a close second was Ali's death he was so trusting and naive and it finally count up with him.

Yeah, plus I heard that if they want S2, they plan to focus on Front Man or something like that..

I'd be cool with that cause we need to now why he chose to join them. and then we'd have Gi-Hun going back in trying to stop the games.

I watched episodes 1-6 in one night. I had to stop after 6 with the marble games. The old man dying and Ali getting tricked like that did me in.

Great series. I watched the first season fairly quick and enjoyed it but wasnt obsessed or anything. Then I watched 2/3 reactors reacting to it and got more into it the more I rewatched certain scenes.

The end of episode 1 was definitely shocking. Up until then I found the show slow. And I wasnt the biggest fan of episode 2. I liked the parts that showed the games obviously.

I found all the characters enjoyable but my favorites were Ali and the two girls. Their deaths and that whole episode was so sad.



I think season 2 could and should be a new group playing the games. And we wont see the main guy until maybe half way through when he tries to infiltrate the games. Maybe he is back as a blue guard instead and we wont find that reveal until later on?

I also hope the cop is not dead. I know he fell off the cliff but he could have survived potentially. I dont think his SL with his brother is over.

Also we need more of the recruiter. lol

I don't think they mentioned if he was a cop or not, at least I didn't believe he was. I guess "The Old Man" converted him. like how he was trying to justify it to, Gi-Hun.
