    Whilst trying finding something new to watch on Netflix 'You' kept appearing when I logged in so ended up watching the pilot. That was Thursday and I'm now 5 episodes down and needless to say hooked and will very likely binge the remaining episodes of Season 1 whilst on a night shift tonight.

    Anyone else watching, watched or given it a go?

    You (TV Series 2018- ) - IMDb

    A clever bookstore manager relies on his savvy Internet know-how to make the woman of his dreams fall in love with him.

    Critics Consensus: You pairs thrilling drama with trashy fun to create an addictive social media horror story that works its way under the skin -- and stays there.

    Starring: Penn Badgley, Elizabeth Lail, Luca Padovan

    Got up to episode 6 so far loving the twists and turns in it, plus the main characters thoughts as voiceovers similar to Dexter really add to it.

    Actually for the producers of Arrow, Flash & Riverdale its quite a breath of fresh air with more adult content in it.

    Tidelands on Netflix is worth watching too, watched all eight episodes over the Christmas break :)

    Cheers all

    Finished the season last night and looking forward to the second. You're still in for a good few twists and turns!!
    I'll be sure to check Tidelands out.

    Is this corny fun and light hearted, black comedy, a dark thriller targeted at adults, or a mixture thereof?

    Judging by what I have seen so far it is for adults, not corny at all reminds me at times of Dexter as a you hear the main characters thoughts out loud.

    Cheers all

    Can this be moved to the main TV section, as its airing in this country, and we will just end up with another thread

    Kept me interested throughout but there were a few moments where you think he wouldn't just get away with something that easily.

    This was much better than I expected, after watching the trailer and reading the synopsis on Netflix, it looked a bit rubbish, but will continue watching when I get home
