'The End of the F—king World'
For many left-wing, viewers the State of the Union is sure to bring on feelings of dread about the way the country is being ran. Some are treating the Trump presidency as the "end of the world."

The series, which is based on a graphic novel of the same name, follows the adventures of two teenage runaways as they trek around England and pretty much ruin their lives.0comments
The show consists of only eight episodes that run around 20 minutes each, so someone looking to avoid the State of the Union could easily distract themselves with a straightforward binge.
