So many reviews of this Netflix stalker/serial killer thriller describe it as trashy or a “guilty pleasure”. I hate that shame-loaded expression and it is henceforth forthwith banned from The Edit (as is henceforth forthwith).
You is simply a good show. The equivalent of a page turner on TV. It is so full of WTF?! moments that you can binge on three or four episodes at a time without even blinking.
It pokes at your conscience as you quickly become charmed by Penn Badgley’s character Joe Goldberg and want him to succeed despite his creepy murderous ways.
I’ve got one episode left of season two and have reached perhaps the biggest WTF moment of the show so far. Knowing that a third season is already announced makes me think I won’t be getting too much closure in the next 45 minutes!
