Popcorn Culture - Review: Squid Game

This week, we're reviewing 2021's biggest pop culture phenomenon and the show that's positioned to become Netflix's most-watched series of all time, Squid Game. The nine-episode first season tells the story of Seong Gi-Hun, an out-of-luck gambler who accepts an invitation to compete in a series of children's games for lots of money. Obviously, nothing is as it seems and the game has deadly implications. We discuss what makes Squid Game so addictive, its deeply unsettling themes, as well as the mythology that it builds along the way.
