What I Did For Love (You, Season One, Lifetime)


I finished watching ‘You,’ and it’s…unsettling. And I was going to say there seems to be no redemption payoff for us watching, but…I read that it has been renewed for a second season, and the season did end with a cliffhanger, so there’s that. And to be honest, I did not expect that ending of Joe killing Beck. I thought she would persevere and live. And seriously, I was rooting for her.  But I guess Penn Badgely is the star of the show, and Joe really is the central character here, and Joe, of course is the adorable serial killer character. They do show some balance of him being a ‘good guy,’ by helping out his child neighbor and helping the child kill his mom’s abusive boyfriend, but do we kill good to ward of the kill bad? And Joe posits everything he does as ‘what I did for love,’ and Marvin Hamlisch has never been quoted so off-context there. So all in all, I was engrossed enough to finish all episodes of the series, and at the very least, I will probably be back for the first episodes of Season Two when it comes back.
