Storyline

Based on Caroline Kepnes' best-selling novel of the same name, YOU is a 21st century love story that asks, "What would you do for love?" When a brilliant bookstore manager crosses paths with an aspiring writer, his answer becomes clear: anything. Using the internet and social media as his tools to gather the most intimate of details and get close to her, a charming and awkward crush quickly becomes obsession as he quietly and strategically removes every obstacle - and person - in his way.

Lifetime's Best Show
11 September 2018 | by kendaudwigSee all my reviews

I enjoyed Carolina Kepnes's book but I thought it would be difficult to pull off a successful television series from the source material and when I found out it was going to be on Lifetime I became very worried. Luckily, Lifetime put their best foot forward thanks mostly to Penn Badgley's portrayal of Joe. His dark, witty performance carries the show and encapsulates the entire show. He walks the antihero tightrope beautifully and it makes for engaging cinema. Hopefully as the show sustains its quality throughout the entire series.
