Netflix's latest offering, "Beef", has left critics and fans alike in high spirits, with its perfect score of 100% on Rotten Tomatoes. The ten-episode comedy series follows the lives of two strangers, Danny Cho (played by Steven Yeun) and Amy Lau (played by Ali Wong), who become entangled in an unexpected incident on the road.
Comedy and Cast Take Center Stage
The series has been widely praised for its humorous script and outstanding performances by its lead actors. Steven Yeun, best known for his role in "The Walking Dead", takes on the role of a failed entrepreneur, while Ali Wong shines as a self-made businesswoman living a vastly different life.
The chemistry between the two actors has been a standout aspect of the show, with one fan exclaiming on Twitter, "The buildup, their chemistry is 10/10. They deserve all their flowers." British GQ's Jack King weighed in on the series, stating, "Thank god, then, for Steven Yeun...and Beef, a Russian Doll-esque return to form for the streamer's original programming, and unequivocally the best new series they've released since 2020's Squid Game."
Twitter Erupts with Rave Reviews
Fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the series, with one saying, "#BEEFNetflix is exactly the opposite of what you think it’s gonna be.
Like, at every point. And that’s one of the many reasons it’s one of this year’s best shows!" Another fan raves, "I never rewatch shows... #BEEFNetflix is an exception. This show is everything."
Based on a True Story
"Beef" is inspired by a real-life road rage incident involving the show's writer, although events in the series have been amplified for entertainment purposes.
Alongside Yeun and Wong, the cast also features talented actors such as Joseph Lee, Young Mazino, David Choe, and Patti Yasutake. With its high ratings on both Rotten Tomatoes and IMDb (8.4 out of 10), it's no wonder fans are already clamoring for a second season.
As one Twitter user puts it, "I started binging this show this morning and all I can say is WOW. I can tell the script was thought out and well-written...Also, I need season 2 like right now!"
