This weekend I jumped on the hype train and binge watched Squid Game. The show had an interesting premise, exceptional acting, and clever screenwriting to name a few. After the show’s final episode I suffered from post-show depression. Not only did I grow attached to the characters but I was sad the show ended.
A few other shows that illicited PSD for me are Avatar: The Last Airbender, Cowboy Bebop, and Samurai Champloo. If the show is well crafted with compelling characters and superb world building, I can’t help but feel an emotional resonance towards the show. When the final episode ends, it feels like I’m saying goodbye to a dear friend.
