    Episode one of Squid Game is “Red Light, Green Light”. Join Player 456’s hosts Jack and Colin as they deep dive into the first episode of Netflix’s most popular show of all time. They offer their insight, thoughts and appreciation, and also cover your questions, queries and theories.
    The game eventually gets underway under the careful watch of a giant robotic doll. If players are caught moving, they are “eliminated”. Jack and Colin chat about the use of the ticking clock as a character, how Hwang Dong-hyuk manages to use this common TV trope without it being clichéd, and the clever use of numerology as a script writing aid.
    We meet more of Squid Game’s participants: Cho Sang-woo (218), Kang Sae-byeok (067), Jang Deok-su (101) and Abdul Ali (199). The guys offer their favourite character choices, their take on why this is not just another “lethal game show competition” and also discuss the theory that the show may be the best example of Game Theory’s “zero-sum game”.

    Episode one of Squid Game is “Red Light, Green Light”. Join Player 456’s hosts Jack and Colin as they deep dive into the first episode of Netflix’s most popular show of all time. They offer their insight, thoughts and appreciation, and also cover your questions, queries and theories.
    There is a massive turning point for Seong Gi-hun and the themes of love and desperation are again hit home in the first 20 minutes of this episode. Jack and Colin discuss the soundtrack, especially the use of classical music, to create and highlight another key concept in the show: duality. They also consider Hwang Dong-hyuk’s use of synchronisation, the issue of non-rational thinking and give the rundown on the squares, triangles and circles.
    We are also introduced to some of the other characters that are going to be key during Squid Game, including The Front Man (Lee Byung-hun) and Player 001 (O Yeong-su). There are also nods to Star Wars, Charlie and The Chocolate Factory and M. C. Escher’s Relativity.

    Watchers are introduced to Seong Gi-hun (played by Lee Jung-jae) - a down on his luck, degenerate gambler but all round decent guy. Jack and Colin discuss the brilliant character building techniques used to quickly get the audience on side with the main protagonist. They also speak about the foreshadowing that is so well used, but can go unnoticed, alongside some of the fantastic direction from Hwang Dong-hyuk.
    The themes of love, luck and desperation are key in Red Light, Green Light and the guys try and think about what life might have looked like for Gi-hun prior to entering the Squid Game.
