Season 2 is not as good as the first season. I fast forwarded parts, to hurry up and finish it. This season seems to be stretched out with a lot of filler material and mindless dialogue. YOU would have been better as a miniseries. Still, it's a good series, and the lead actor was cast perfectly. And what an excellent actor he is. He knows how to show "sicko" with a barely discernible expression. All the actors are really good, and the writing is great (except for the filler material, which was probably required). The directing and camera shots...all great. Hard to believe that Lifetime started this series on its channel, since it seems not the right type of series for their audience. Which is why it pulled the plug after the first season. But whoever decided on this series for Lifetime...that person knew a good script when he saw it. Joe is really creepy and reminds us all that we never really know what's in someone else's head, esp. if we haven't known him that long.
Season 1 of YOU is pretty good. The lead male resembles James Franco so much that I wondered if he were related (he's not). There was even a reference by a female character to James Franco. He's a wonderful actor & was perfect for this role. So was the Guinevere Beck actress. They both bowled me over. Script, writing, directing, acting were all great. I couldn't stop watching, so I ended up binge watching. The only thing is...this would have been better as a miniseries. The story doesn't seem to lend itself so much to a series. One irritating thing in reviews I've read is a reference to the lead character as brilliant or a genius, when there is no evidence that he is anything other than an average intelligence underachiever who reads a lot. And who has some screws loose in his head. He's not insane. He's narcissistic, obsessive, evil, maybe sociopathic or psychotic. This series is not for the sensitive because of the subject matter, blood, vomit, and gore.
Awesome series! Shot & narrated in story book style with unique visuals before melding into reality. This is a unique, funny, creative, and wonderful light murder mystery series. A young detective and her three mystery-writing offbeat aunts.
Awesome! Really funny, creative, different light murder mysteries. Each episode is a different murder.
Good series. I didn't know what it would be about or what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised, as twists and turns revealed themselves with each passing episode. It kept me watching thru the end of the season. Applegate is an amazing actress and gets to show her chops. I love the other lead actress, and the actress who plays Applegate's mother (a longtime fave of mine).
It's called a comedy. I didn't find it funny. It was interesting for a while, but the repeated effort to shock the audience grew tiring after a couple of episodes. There are too many wonderful films (see "Spirited," streaming..an Australian 2010 series) and too many talented writers & actors to waste time watching this series try to pass itself off as art or entertainment. There are comedies to watch that actually make people laugh.
Excellent series. I would have rated it 5, because it is, but for one thing: it's a bit rough and crude for me. Yeah, I know they're rough and tough prisoners. Even so, it's a bit much for me. But all the characters are well defined, the acting is superb, the writing excels, the premise is unique. I loved Season 1, and binge watched the remaining seasons. I couldn't help it. And it continued to be great. Kate Mulgrew was a standout, as was Suzanne, who appears in a later season. The little gal who spouted religion - a really good actress. Highly recommend, but it's okay if you fast forward through some of the gross scenes.
Groundhog Day on steroids with some metaphysical and who knows what thrown in. High quality attention-grabbing from the beginning to end of the season. What will the next season be, if there is one? I can't wait to see. This is a knock out of the park for me. Highly recommend for those who like a little dark with a little comedy.
Loved it. Suspenseful, unpredictable at times, great script, great acting. The whole package. I made assumptions about the ending, and got it wrong. That's a good thing. I give this season a 4.5 like the first season.
Excellent series. Bill Pullman has transitioned into roles that are appropriate for his age (unlike some other actors), and he pulls it off with aplomb while still being so attractive and appealing. Jessica Biel - I had no idea she was this good an actress. Great original script, suspenseful. If anything is wrong, it's that it slogs along a bit in the middle, dragging things out, when I think it should have proceeded faster. But it's still an excellent series. I rate it 4.5.
Because Robin Wright had asked for a more prominent role in the series earlier on, she was already established, with Kevin Spacey, as one of the strong leads, as the series headed into its final installment. Spacey was not re-upped for the final season for reasons known to all. I liked this final season a lot, which is something a bit remarkable, after the loss of Spacey and the fact that this is the SIXTH season. It was creative, well written, well directed, had plot twists and some pretty nasty stuff going on. I was surprised how well Wright carried it. She's in most scenes in every episode and never misses a beat, as she walks from room to room in her heels and designer outfits, with perfect hair, perfect body, and ruthless soul. I wasn't crazy about the way it ended, but can't say that I would have been happier with any other ending. This entire series is one of the best series ever produced. Touche' to Wright, the directors and producers, for producing one final exciting episode.
I haven't even finished the first episode, but I'm rating it 4 1/2, anyway. I'm a horror movie fan (not slasher movie. Horror movie), but I haven't been able to get through the first episode yet because it's so scary. I stopped watching it at night, because it was too scary. So I tried it during the day. Better, but still too scary for me. It could be that just the particular kinds of scares in this episode are the kind that get to me the most. I don't know. But well done, so far. A true horror show so far. The kind that makes you put your hands over your eyes for a second here and there. Well done.
4 1/2. I rated 5 for first season. Still excellent, but the plot is getting hard to believe, as the writers stretch the family's actions & dealings farther & farther. There are some plot holes or mistakes or intentional changes, where the writers changed what happened in prior episodes. Like the man who was electrocuted on the wharf was supposedly guilty of plotting to kill Marty, but in the episode where Ruth sets the plan to kill Marty, the man who was later electrocuted (I think his name was Jeff) was actually against it and had not been plotting to kill Marty. Several things like that were changed. But the show is still excellent. I think they should wrap it up soon, though, if it doesn't end with this season. I'm on the last episode, so I don't know if it ends here or not.
One of the most exciting series to come along in a while. Cillian Murphy was the perfect choice, but I would not have though so before seeing this series. Glad they ended it and didn't drag it on for more seasons.
I LOVED this 3 PART MINISERIES. How could Hugh Grant still be lovable while being despicable? Ben Whishaw was perfect as the young love interest. The acting, the script, the story, the directing. I hope Amazon does more like this one, and more Hugh Grant!
This whole series, every season, is first rate.
This is the best season yet. There were issues with the first season, as the writers struggled to find the right level and type of comedy and the actors tried to discover and settle into their characters. By the third season, it was hitting it strides. Season 4, though, is the best. The actors inhabit their characters, the writers move things along more quickly, the blend of light comedy and drama is spot on. It tackles more uncomfortable themes, but stays funny. This is a light comedy with some serious moments and issues. You get a little slapstick, a little unbelievability, some truly funny scenes, some drama, and all of it revolving around a basket of neurotic family members. Every actor is superb, even the grown children. Brianna, in particular, captures my attention in every scene she's in. She can say a line that wasn't written to be funny, but becomes funny in the way she says it. She's good. And in this season, enter another romantic involvement with the very handsome and charismatic Peter Gallagher. I hope they bring him back next season. I hope there IS a next season. Lisa Kudrow was a great surprise character in a few episodes. Marsha Mason was back..wish they had given her more to do. But there's only so much time. What she did get was choice. I hope Netflix decides to continue it for another season. It would be a shame not to continue it, when it is hitting all the right marks, and there are plenty more story lines to explore.
Loved it! Good plot & subplots. A little unbelievable at times, but it's a tv show & has to be interesting & gripping. Bateman directs and did a super job of that. He nails the Marty role and is an expert at acting extremely normal, in speech & mannerisms. He cultivated a look in this series with his steely blue eyes (be still my heart). Linney is believable and of course great in her role, as she is in all her roles. The kids are great. The bad guys are familiar faces and were convincing as guys who'd skin you alive. A great watch. I couldn't wait to see each episode. Netflix hit it out of the park w/this one. Can't wait til next season.
Best season yet. All the characters are rounded, and the actors seem so natural in their roles. Very funny scenarios. LOVE this series. Great to see people of all ages represented in a sitcom. Fonda and Tomlin are awesome in this series. Martin Sheen is great! Who knew he could play gay so well? Sam Waterston's character can be a little irritating, but Waterston himself plays it convincingly. The kids have bigger roles, and that's a good thing, since they are excellent actors and interesting characters. I highly recommend this funny sitcom. It's an unexpected delight that you don't see much on tv.
