IGN’s Best TV Series of the Year 2021

IGN published this video item, entitled “IGN’s Best TV Series of the Year 2021” – below is their description.

Every year brings with it at least one new Netflix series that dominates the pop culture sphere for a few weeks, and 2021 was no exception. This year, everyone was obsessed with Squid Game, a bizarre yet fascinating dystopian survival drama slash fictional game show slash social satire.

It’s tough to pin a series as weird as Squid Game down to just one genre… but the important thing is it’s IGN’s pick for the best TV series of the year 2021.

Like many great satires, Squid Game manages to be both completely ridiculous and wholly believable at the same time. Lee Jung-jae stars as Seong Gi-hun, a struggling South Korean man who becomes one of 500 participants who agree to take part in a series of potentially very lucrative games. Who wouldn’t agree to play a few simple childhood games in exchange for ludicrous amounts of prize money? But there’s always a catch, and the contestants quickly learn these games have literal life and death consequences.

Squid Game is easily one of the most unique additions to Netflix’s library, but it’s a show that clicks on a number of levels. Its central mysteries are reason enough to watch on their own: Who are these mysterious masked captors, and how does it benefit them to offer such a large payout for people who are down on their luck? Why not find a less sadistic way to be altruistic? And what could drive a person to be so desperate to willingly play in these games? The tightly paced nine-episode structure ensures we don’t have to wait too long before the pieces start falling into place.

Watch the full video to learn why Netflix is the winner of IGN’s Best TV Show of 2021 award.
