You to continue fueling confusing crushes for a 3rd season

You to continue fueling confusing crushes for a 3rd season

Just so we’re all on the same page (get it?!), we as a viewing audience should definitely not be finding ways to sympathize with

You ’s murderous paramour, Joe Goldberg , right? Somehow, despite having an official body count, it was still a debated subject during the second season, where he attempted to start fresh after his previous relationship ended in, uh, very specific heartbreak. And ...

Be white and handsome—You's Penn Badgley reveals the formula for being a charming psycho

Former

Gossip Girl and Easy A star Penn Badgley seems refreshingly grounded about the fact that he’s being bombarded with romantic online attention from women who’ve fallen under the spell of Joe, the romance-minded nutcase killer on the Netflix (originally Lifetime) series You . As the A.V. Club’s Joelle Monique put it in her essay on the sly dissection of male romantic heroes and their...

Are you watching You, or is You watching you?

Here’s what’s happening in the world of television for Thursday, December 26. All times are Eastern.

Top pick

You (Netflix, 3:01 a.m., complete second season): Once a totally solid but very underseen Lifetime series, Sera Gamble’s You got what the kids call “the Netflix bump” when it arrived on, well, Netflix. Now it’s a Netflix original, and it seems like it’s every bit as good—if not...

You evolves its antihero, but slows down the pace in season 2
TV Reviews All of our TV reviews in one convenient place.

You became a surprise hit when its

first season got a second life on Netflix. The show used toxic tropes from the romance genre and obscure French folk tales to challenge established ideals of love in Western culture, following bookstore manager Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley), as he stalked, gaslit, and eventually murdered aspiring writer...

Penn Badgley's insufferable, dangerous creep is back in this second-season teaser for You

Penn Badgley's insufferable, dangerous creep is back in this second-season teaser for You

Although it debuted on Lifetime last year, Sera Gamble and Greg Berlanti’s dissection of romantic comedies, toxic men, and

the intersections between same , You, didn’t become a sensation until earlier this year, when its first season landed on Netflix. Now the show’s second season is set to debut on Netflix proper on December 26, and while the platform, setting, and, uh, names might...

Chris D'Elia to really stretch as an actor by playing a comic in season 2 of You

[The following contains spoilers for season one of You.]

Lifetime’s stalker comedy-drama You found an unexpected second life after it was added to Netflix, where it became a giant hit and prompted a bunch of confused viewers to go, “Wait, am I rooting for the stalker?” And unlike its protagonist, the series presumably welcomed the attention.

Now, after the second season of the show decided to...

You, me, and toxicity

You, me, and toxicity

The opening shot of You is an upside-down fisheye-lens view of the sprawling New York City skyline. The angle tilts viewers headfirst into a disturbed perspective of love and romance in the 21st century. Highlighting both the isolation and over-sharing exacerbated by social media, You sheds light on the toxic behaviors exhibited by an entire generation of millennials. Using an obsessed...

Penn Badgley comes out of retirement again for Greg Berlanti’s stalker drama

Penn Badgley comes out of retirement again for Greg Berlanti’s stalker drama

Not long after Gossip Girl ended, Penn Badgley swore off acting, telling Wet Paint that there was absolutely nothing that could drag him back to TV. He’s sort of stuck to that promise, returning only for such great television events as The Slap, and the odd movie role. But now he’s heard the siren’s call once more, as TV Line reports he’ll star in Greg Berlanti’s stalker drama for Lifetime....
