You (Netflix Series Review)- House Of Tortured Souls

I have been hearing and seeing the craze of the series You on Netflix and knew I had to check it out. I binged watched all 10 episodes in a day, it was that insanely good and oddly fascinating considering the circumstances on what it is about. You is a psychological thriller series that was developed by Greg Berlanti and Sera Gamble. It is based on the book of the same name, written by Caroline Kepnes. You follows a bookstore manager in New York who falls obsessively in love with one of his customers and will do whatever it takes to be in her life, even if it means killing whoever gets in his way of her. This series stars Penn Badgley (Gossip Girl, The Stepfather, Easy A), Elizabeth Lail (Once Upon A Time), John Stamos ( Full House, ER), Shay Mitchell (Pretty Little Liars, The Possesion Of Hannah Grace), Daniel Cosgrove (Beverly Hills, 90210, Van Wilder), and Hari Nef (Transparent, Crush). 

You takes you through the mind of Joe (Penn Badgley) a bookstore store manager in New York City who takes a liking to one of his customers, an attractive woman who happens to be an aspiring writer called Beck (Elizabeth Lail). With the interaction between the two, you get the vibe right away that Joe has to have her in his life. With what Joe does to get Beck’s attention, it keeps you on your toes and it is quite a terrifying ride.

Each episode takes you on a crazy whirlwind of a crazy adventure in coming in contact with people who are close to Beck. Rather it be family, friends, or even her career it was obvious that Joe’s obsession and jealousy went way too far. 

There has been a lot of buzz lately that this show is glorifying stalking. Personally I did not see in any episode where it shows that stalking is okay, I saw where an over zealous man became obsessed with his ‘dream girl’ and instead of doing what any normal human would do like ask the girl out, he took it into a whole new dimension. The character Joe, went into a whole different dimension to get his dream girl, yet instead he hit so many bumps along the way and when something did not go his way or work out it turned deadly. I was instantly hooked, the plot stayed on track, it was very suspenseful and you just didn’t know the outcome right away. 

Check out the trailer below and I highly recommend giving it a shot, I don’t think you’ll regret it!
