TV Recap: YOU – Still Logged Into You …

YOU
“The Last Nice Guy In New York” (Episode 102)
September 16, 2018

YOU is a classic NY love story where a girl walks into a bookstore where the boy is the manager. Boy falls in love with girl instantly. Boy begins to stalk her every where she goes; breaks into her apartment, watches her every movement from across the street of her apartment, and then commits attempted murder on girl’s douchebag boyfriend. Boy also has a heart of gold for a young neighbor boy and is also charismatic and witty.  Like I said, the classic NY love story.

Last episode on Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, Greer and Ryan were able to convince Sandrine to track (rather than capture) Ali, on the hope that he’ll lead them to Suleiman. Also, we met Victor “Tombstone” Polizzi, an accomplished Air Force drone pilot who is skilled at killing enemies from his Reaper drone high in the sky but maybe is breaking a bit from the stress. And Hanin. She made a mad dash departure with her daughters (Samir wouldn’t leave his father and even ratted on his mother) in the middle of the night. Mousa sent Yazid and Fathi to bring them home.  Catch up on all the details of Episode 3 here.

TV Review: YOU – Love It or Leave It?

YOU
“Love It or Leave It?”
Premieres September 9, 2018

YOU, one of the newest shows of the Fall season, premieres Sunday, September 9 at  10pm (ET) on Lifetime. We have been fortunate to see the first several episodes in advance and so we’re providing our (spoiler free) “Love It or Leave It?” review earlier than usual.

Based on Caroline Kepnes’ 2014 novel of the same name, YOU stars Penn Badgley (Gossip Girl), Elizabeth Lail (Once Upon a Time) and Shay Mitchell (Pretty Little Liars). The series was developed for television by Sera Gamble (The Magicians) and Greg Berlanti (The CW Arrow-verse). Gamble and Berlanti are also co-executive producers and sharing showrunner duties, as well.

A quick look at the tremendous acting and creative power at work here and you’re probably not surprised to hear that the show has already been renewed for a second season. If you follow me on social media or listen to the Jay and Mike Show (jayandmikeshow.com), you may already have a sense of how I feel about YOU.  Also, I have become very aware of how often I am saying the word “you.”

In short, YOU is a twisted “love” story for the 21 st Century. And it’s fucking fantastic. With New York City as a backdrop (and itself, its own character), YOU boldly dives head first into exploring the hottest button issues in our technology- and social media-obsessed culture. If you’re reading this, YOU will speak to you on some level.
