      William Schwartz HanCinema Right to the end, "The 8 Show" refuses to caricature even its most seemingly loathsome characters. All of them were driven to madness by the harsh, empathy-less world they lived in long before they accepted their invitation to the game. Jun 14, 2024 Full Review Chris Joyce Movies and Munchies (YouTube) The pacing is deliberate and urgent, without creating rushed storytelling, and when this is combined with the suspenseful and dreadful actions, the storytelling will grab you and compel you to watch. Rated: 4.5/5 May 23, 2024 Full Review Joel Keller Decider The 8 Show might be as dark as Squid Game, but it’s definitely more wryly funny... May 21, 2024 Full Review Pierce Conran South China Morning Post Viewers are likely to recognise The 8 Show as a blatant attempt to piggyback on the achievement of the most successful Netflix show of all time, but so long as they are being entertained they may give it more time. Rated: 3/5 May 18, 2024 Full Review Jonathon Wilson Ready Steady Cut Something fascinating happens in The 8 Show, but it’s fascinating for the wrong reasons. Rated: 2/5 May 18, 2024 Full Review Kate Sánchez But Why Tho? A Geek Community The 8 Show is one of the best limited series on Netflix. It ends with finality and pays off every narrative choice made along the way. Rated: 10/10 May 17, 2024 Full Review Read all reviews

      Grazia F That’s a perfect representation of society! Plenty of plot twists Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/22/24 Full Review Christian S In summary, "The 8 Show" falls short on several fronts, from storytelling and character development to acting and production quality. Both critics and fans have found significant flaws that overshadow its potential. While every show has its audience, "The 8 Show" may not be worth the time investment for those seeking quality entertainment. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 06/22/24 Full Review Audience Member I am a sucker for death game-like shows and this fits the bill. The characters are interesting enough to keep you engaged and the season is a complete story. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/20/24 Full Review Audience Member Shockingly bad, unsatisfying ending. Too much gore to the point where it’s disgusting for gore-lovers to watch. Plot was obvious most of the time. Don’t waste your time Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 06/20/24 Full Review Jeffery G Pretty stupid from the start. It was a bit obvious to low floors that the 8th floor is playing the king of the room, then at least ordering weapons to fight back could have been the best option, the show is just unreal and has been written just for the sake of having some content. But anyway, as expected from a webtoon, only 1% of it is good. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 06/20/24 Full Review Arvind V Intriguing show that is sometimes so gruesome I have to take a break from watching. At the same time, I couldn't help but watch until the end.
