If there is one new television show that deserves your obsessive attention this fall, YOU on Lifetime has to be it. Based on Caroline Kepnes' novel of the same name, YOU follows Joe (Penn Badgley), a seemingly sweet and undeniably brilliant guy with a dark side. Joe works at a bookshop and that is where he meets sunny heroine, Guinevere Beck (Elizabeth Lail). Joe is smitten with her at first sight. Unfortunately, it does not stop there. So, why should you watch? These are the reasons why.

It's Like Three Thrillers Combined in One

While there are quite a few thrillers on television, there is something that sets YOU apart from all of them. It tackles some of people's greatest fears by taking a deep dive right into the mind that creates them. YOU pulls back the curtain while kicking the suspense up a notch each episode, all without losing a moment to ratchet up the stakes. In the first two episodes, what you think could be a slow build towards Joe's endgame is disrupted immediately.

Although his strategy may be a secret to the rest of the world, viewers are given the inside track. That is not to say that Joe discloses everything because there are moments that will take your breath away. Equipped with a non-stop stream of surprising twists and turns, YOU goes for the jugular without so much as batting a figurative eyelash. And that makes the thrills all the more chilling.
