A dangerously charming, intensely obsessive young man goes to extreme measures to insert himself into the lives of those he is transfixed by. Written by Berlanti and Gamble based on Caroline Kepnes’ best-selling novel of the same name.
Yikes! Am I the only one who has had a relationship with a guy who lies and manipulates like this but who fortunately doesn't go to the ultimate lengths this guy goes to? #PTSD
This show forms a good crash course for young women to spot the signs of a disturbed, toxic man who they may already be dating.
I almost gave up on YOU halfway thru the pilot but then read the reviews here and decided to give it at least a few more minutes. I just finished episode 7. It's so weird and uncomfortable that it is actually quite compelling
I know a lot of people liked this show, but this just didn't make sense for me. It was like in a horror movie when the leading girl hears a noise and goes downstairs to "investigate" what's going on. Don't! Just run away!
“You,” checks off many of the stalker-drama tropes. “You” won’t win any Emmys, but it will be interesting to see how the story evolves over the course of this season. It’s already been renewed for a second season ahead of Sunday’s series premiere, so someone has obvious faith in the project.
I like this show. It’s not a masterpiece but it’s good to see that very troubled people can look like someone very nice and appealing. It gets too surreal in some moments but I would say it’s a pretty decent show overall.
I was hesitant about watching this show for 2 reasons: 1) I like Penn Badgley so wasn't sure how I'd go seeing him in this type of role and 2) the whole premise of making a violent stalker (because yes, that is what he is) as the "good guy" is not something I agree with. However, I'm 3 eps in and I'm hooked! I find the tone of Penn's narration of Joe (his character) and his thought processes so compelling and want to hear more about how he views situations and interactions (mainly because they are sometimes completely off base!) and find it intriguing how he then justifies his actions. Yes, there are a few clichéd parts which have been used to "endear" us to Joe and, as the main character, the writers need to do this. It's a fine balance that's needed however, and as long as they don't completely try to convince us he's an ok guy (which he absolutely is not!), then this show has real promise.
Seriously it is refreshing. It was a slow pick up and I am not a fan of narrative but somehow I watched it and I could not Stop watching.
Joe is such a creepy, freaky, loving person and I have not words for it. It is just an amazing character.
This was sitting in my queue for awhile until I saw the tons of Facebook posts about Season 2. So I decided to give it a chance and I was hooked from the first episode. I completed both seasons in four days. I hope there is another season.
It's funny how a show that makes so much fun of bad and lazy writing does exactly the same thing in the end. It's basically a rip-off of several different shows, books, and tv-series, most of all it reminds me of "Memento".
I think the problem with a lot of Netlfix shows is, that they don't really have a goal or a story they are telling anymore... With this show, they have proved their point. I hope, they don't trag it on for too long.
