Why you should stop watching Netflix’s latest hit series immediately

The first episode of 'Safe' features a scene in which a few characters are playing football...

We are all slaves to Netflix.

The streaming service offers a smorgasbord of binge-worthy documentaries, series and films.

However, while their latest hit ‘Safe’ may have an engaging narrative with an army of red herrings to keep viewers guessing, we are instructing you to stop watching it immediately.

Why?

Because of this abomination…

First things first, how has he missed from two yards out?

Any striker worth their salt should be adding to their tally in that situation — especially with the Golden Boot up for grabs.

We respect his decision to opt for an emphatic powerful finish, as everyone should when gifted an open goal under no pressure, but missing the target is inexcusable.

Secondly, why does he celebrate?

Mate, you’ve squandered a golden opportunity and let your team-mates down.

Is it possible he went for the Bobby Firmino no-look finish and failed to spot the ball cannoning off the post?

The only acceptable reaction in such a situation is a disbelieving hands-on-head pose, a hopeful but ultimately futile glance to the linesman, followed by an apologetic hand to the bench.

Some say he’s still celebrating

The woman sitting in the pink chair at the bottom of the shot puts her hand up in a celebratory fashion as well for some reason.

She is quite clearly a plastic fan or a day tripper borrowing somebody else’s season ticket.

The fan next to her should, really, report her to the nearest steward.

Now check out the midfield general in the pink dress/denim jacket combo.

She initially celebrates but is then visibly heartbroken by the glaring miss.

You can tell she’s put in the hard yards and the sudden reality of extra time was a crushing blow.

An absolute pro, she switches back on quickly and jogs over to box in the other team at the resultant throw-in.

How about the left-back in the corduroy chinos?

He too lifts his arms in anticipation of a hard-earned last-gasp winner before wheeling away in abject despair.

We’re sure the Cotswolds’ Roberto Carlos had plenty to say to his team-mate back in the dressing room.

Can we talk about the fraudulent game of swingball in the foreground as well?

Neither Nadal nor Federer make contact with their lazy swings.

Evidently, fatigue has got the better of them as the match enters the latter stages of the fifth set.

The whole thing is a bloody farce and will surely have to be replayed at a later date.

Possibly behind closed doors.

The ultras were baying for blood

Seriously though, why did this take make the final edit?

Unfortunately, we are all now duty-bound to stop watching ‘Safe’ on all devices.

Shame, we were enjoying it.
