Lauren Oliver successfully adapted her book for the ten-episode series. Unexpectedly, after binge-watching, I am a big fan of the show. Panic follows
high school graduates in the small town fictional town of Carp; they undertake tasks that are outright dangerous and make them face their fears. The
prize money is for $50,000 and a way out of their dead-end community.
The viewer follows events from Heather's point of view. But the characters are engaging and drive the story nicely. I read the kindle version of
Oliver's novel. I wanted to compare the source material to the streaming service adaption. Both versions stand out for their different but
entertaining takes on very human emotions and desires. Before watching the program, people who read the book before watching the program will notice
the expansion of storylines to cater for the extended format. Yet Oliver is successful in that aim without leaving me with feelings of absurdity.
These kinds of flaws are why I often stop watching a program.

Oh I binge watched that too, was surprising good. Wonder if they will do a second season?
The show enjoys an enthusiastic following on social media and Discord. Shows that planned their second season before Covid-19 faced delays and other
disadvantages. Netflix cancelled The Society, pandemic related uncertainties, and the cast taking different roles is behind the disappointing
decision. So Panic enjoys the advantage that film productions are restarting in 2021. I would love to watch Panic season 2 next year.
