KDramaCritic Short Review:

Squid Game started off as a super promising and unique show for the first five episodes.  The questions of what was going on out weighed the answers and the idea that children's games could be life-or-death situations crossed into surreal territory.

Then the quality of writing crumbled dramatically.  The mystery was stripped away and the ending became an obvious second season set up.

If Squid Game's popularity hadn't exploded, I would recommend skipping the show all together.  However, the cultural references to the show make it a relevant watch.
