A new Netflix show in the list of thousands, ‘You’, is the talk of social media lately. ‘You’ made its debut on the streaming platform on December 26 and sent viewers into a frenzy.

The show is a physiological thriller, an uncommon genre, that first aired on Lifetime last year and snuck by most viewers until Netflix uploaded the 10 episode first series making ‘You’ a hit.

The show is from the point of view of Jeff Goldberg (Penn Badgley), your average boy-next-door. He lives an average New York life, operating a small book store, and living in a lower class apartment by himself. Things change when one day Guinevere Beck (Elizabeth Lail) strolls into his store. As the two flirt over their favorite reads and Joe tells her lesser known facts about her favorite authors, he becomes quickly transfixed with Beck.

The show takes you on Joe’s journey of stalking and following Beck around in hopes of eventually being with her. However; there is definitely more than one obstacle in the way. Not only does Beck have her on-again-off-again boyfriend, Benji (Lou Taylor Pucci), there is also her incredibly skeptical and sly best friend Peaches (Shay Mitchell).

The way ‘You’ separates from a normal Netflix show is that this one in particular takes you into the mind of a psycho. By the end of the season, a lot of viewers tend to sympathize with Joe, even though his behavior is more than questionable.

‘You’ may have you questioning many things, but one definitely will not be its quality. Viewers will constantly be on the edge of their seat and craving more of Joe; even if he is a criminal. Luckily, ‘You’ was renewed for a second season before its season one debut on Netflix: The release date has yet to be announced but you can happily know that your favorite criminal will be returning to a T.V. near you soon.
