You: Season 1 Reviews

January 31, 2019
You is very, very good. It's been called "bonkers" but you can take that in a good way.

It is smart enough to let us know that to sympathise with Joe is to be complicit in his crimes. Every time you feel you're being drawn in, the show pulls the rug from under you and reminds you that he is not the romantic hero you are looking for.

YOU is actually a wicked satire of social media, self-proclaimed "nice guys" and the twisted ideals of romantic fiction.

Four episodes in, it was too funny and aggressive for me to interrogate the details. Around the fifth, a few plot wheels spun off. But by then, like Joe, I was committed. Sometimes you need to trust a stranger.

Creepy, yes? You will scare plenty of viewers into changing their online passwords.

You stays grounded by supplying a measured amount of dry humor, often at the expense of its sociopathic lead. Joe is scary, for sure, but he's also absurd, and the writers never forget that.

Creepy, addictive and full of dry humor about social media, millennials and dating in the age of Tinder, You twists the usual victim-perp plotline - she's terrorized, he's sickeningly aroused - by placing them both squarely in the #MeToo era.
September 10, 2018
The series not only explores one particularly misguided mind but the very notion of privacy, and the perils of not safeguarding it in an age where practically everyone seems to be oversharing.

You may not be great. It may at times even be bad... But it is undeniably magnetic.
September 7, 2018
There's truly nothing new to report here as far as premises go, but "You"... unfolds with the sort of momentum, chemistry and solid structure that other new TV shows would do well to study.
September 7, 2018
It speaks to the thing that's all too true in life: the hero of a story might, from a different perspective, really be a villain.

The thing You does most successfully is stoke digital paranoia,.
September 6, 2018
YOU is a lot like social media itself: perhaps not the most edifying way to spend your time, but very, very hard to quit

Greg Berlanti's new series, "You," checks off many of the stalker-drama tropes.

You has sharp ideas, if sometimes expressed with thudding lack of subtlety, about social media; it has an interesting premise...
