VII. Ready Steady Cut
Jonathon Wilson from Ready Steady Cut has stated about My Name as follows - My Name is unlikely to equal the sheer cultural impact of Squid Game. But it’s a very different show worthy of just as much attention, delivering a handsome, engaging, bloodthirsty spectacle with plenty of style and verve. Tune in for the action sequences, and stay for the layered portrait of a woman in internal and external turmoil. It’s worth the investment.
