You: Season 2 Reviews

December 30, 2019
A self-aware work of melodrama, You combines the best elements of murder-mystery series, Millennial sitcoms, and revenge fantasies.

I am feeling so gratified by this turn of events.

Whenever a series uproots locale, viewers have good reason to worry about a quality decline. Season 2 of You is an exception, creating new obstacles for Badgley's stalker by placing him in a town full of practiced fakery.
December 26, 2019
In that sense, the series serves as a highly binge-able, very modern thriller, if not, hopefully, what anyone will view as a template for modern romance.

'You' is still fun, and its ending easily sets up a Season 3. But there are only so many times Joe can worm his way out of an impossible situation before viewers stop caring.

You remains as captivating as ever.

[I]t's as tasty, and as bad for you, as ever.
December 26, 2019
The new season is a lukewarm extension of the first - redundant and not as engrossing as it used to be.
December 26, 2019
"You" retains its thrills, chills and thoughtful questions about masculinity, abusers and modern relationships in new episodes.

Season 2 proves Season 1 wasn't lightning in a bottle.

Badgley is still immensely watchable as Joe, who has the heart of a rom-com hero and the mind/lack of impulse control of a creepy stalker. The actor juggles the dual duties of on-screen performance and voiceover narration with unrelenting charm.

The second season moves much slower than its predecessor, and the mystery of will-they/won't-they takes a backseat to vital character development.

For all its ecstatic turns and arch, sometimes operatic nature, You is ultimately an unnerving, complicated portrait of male violence - how it begins, whom it targets, and how its effects ripple outward.
December 18, 2019
Perhaps the intent is to shock us into awareness of quite how rotten is this fellow for whom we feel so much, but that's a magic trick that could really only work once.
