Its sparklingly cruel sense of humour is what makes it compulsively watchable -- through Joe's sardonic narration, the show displays a rare eagerness to ridicule its own characters.

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.

Sep 7, 2018 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

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

Sep 12, 2018 | Full Review…

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

Jan 31, 2019 | Full Review…

You's hook is interesting, but it falls apart at times. [Full review in Spanish]

May 14, 2019 | Full Review…

The modern version of a Hitchcock character is enough to pull us slowly into a tornado of lies and deceipt. [Full review in Spanish]

Feb 26, 2019 | Full Review…

Ultimately, a spotter's guide for overly persistent, clammy-handed Nice Guys.

Jan 28, 2019 | Full Review…

The show is both unsettlingly creepy and riveting television.

Feb 1, 2019 | Full Review…

I was not prepared for how funny it was.

Jan 30, 2019 | Full Review…

A very addictive thriller that will undoubtedly give us a sinister view of these parties and, at the same time, makes us question whether we have ever been Joe. [Full Review in Spanish]

Mar 3, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

This is the anti-Fifty Shades of Gray... It made me feel repulsed. I loved it.

Jan 30, 2019 | Full Review…

It is pulpy and trashy enough to make it easy to watch despite some eye-rolling plot developments, but with just enough satire - about social media and modern romance - to prod the binge viewers into some reflection.

Audience Reviews for You: Season 1

    It's strange to see Penn Badgley aka "Dan Humphrey" as the bad mad in a series. The show has ups and downs, but it's thrilling enough to deserve a second season and to give the producers a chance not to blow out something that as narrative potential. Watchable.

    Absolutely breathtaking. Amazing writing and acting. The lovable serial killer!
  • Nov 12, 2019
    This is shay Mitchell proving to the audience that she can do so much more than a teen drama like Pretty little liars and that she does have some really good acting skills.
  • Oct 22, 2019
    With well-crafted directing, clever psychological drama, well-tied screenplay, great character development, and Penn Badgley's excellent and charismatic performance, You consolidate yourself as one of the best psychological thriller series of recent years

    many things did NOT make sense in this show. I don't know how people kept watching it.
  • Sep 05, 2019
    So insanely creepy and unpredictable. A great series with excellent casting.
  • Aug 30, 2019
    I think this show is perfection. It's a must-watch for each and every one of YOU! Well, it's addictive, different and from the novel and as entertaining as it is shocking.
  • Aug 20, 2019
    Great story and characters and like that city look. Easily draws viewer in. Almost disturbingly realistic and believable. Could easily be based on so many true events

    This show is so intriguing.. I've watched it twice, and on the first go it gave me the creeps, made knots in my stomach, gave me such horrible anxiety that I had to watch it over like 3 weeks.. but on the second go I found Joe to be creepy but in a hot way. I guess it depends where you are in your head.

    It's really interesting developing a character who you learn so much about yet is ironically the villain. It's cool seeing into the mind of people like this whilst seeing what they can do. The one thing that really put a bad taste in my mouth and lost it's good rating is the fact that (SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER) He killed Beck. I was hoping she would be a remaining character. Perhaps that Joe faced prison time and weaseled out of it whilst Beck attempts to live a normal life digging into his past out of curiosity. Joe escapes and continues to stalk her perhaps and she goes paranoid. Idk I feel like it would've been better not killing off one of the main characters like that.
