Death to 2020— Timeyin Freedom (@TimeyinFreedom) December 29, 2020
A look back at the year we all want to end finally coming to an end.
This comic mockumentary, with great cast gives you a rerun of 2020 in full. It might feel insensitive to a lot of people but the truth is, you survived all that shit.
So Enjoy👌🏽#FreeReview pic.twitter.com/fdljcpdKRG
#deathto2020 is fucking genius. For those of you who have yet to watch the Netflix special mockumentary, it is a year end review filled with so much relatable and hilarious dialogue that I almost forgot all this shit actually went down this year...— Jackie. (@jackiegillx) December 30, 2020
I don't understand the bad reviews of Death to 2020. I was laughing like a drain.— Howard van Rooijen (@HowardvRooijen) December 27, 2020
I particularly loved fire being described as "radicalised air".
Seeing mixed reviews of Netflix’s Death to 2020 but I rate it. The writers have picked up on our reactions and behaviours as we go this wild year really well— Madeleine Boyers (@BoyersMadeleine) December 27, 2020
I see that it's had mixed reviews, but I personally adored 'Death To 2020' on Netflix.— Lee Thompson (@leethommo) December 28, 2020
Charlie Brooker's nightmare round-up of the year is basically his once-annual BBC2 Screen Wipe, fully extended, and now with a Hollywood blockbuster budget.
One thing is for sure. 2020 deserved only the wildest kind of mockumentary to commemorate it. Do give it a watch, and let us know what you think.
