    "You" On Netflix Is Ridiculous And Great And Here Are The Tweets To Prove It

    Dan Humphrey got more murdery. Warning: contains spoilers.

    Netflix

    When I first saw the trailer for You on Netflix, ngl I thought it looked terrible. "No one asked for Gossip Girl meets Pretty Little Liars!" I yelled at my laptop. But in that weird time between Christmas and New Year's, when you lose all concept of what day it is or what you should be doing, I logged onto Netflix (because what else was I gonna do), and there was You. And I thought, screw it, I'll give it a go.

    Fast forward 12 hours and I had watched the WHOLE DAMN THING. It was completely addictive and so damn compelling. Penn Badgley plays a grown-up, more violent version of Dan Humphrey and it works perfectly. This is definitely his best work to date, and I say that as someone who has watched him in that blue devil body paint on loop way too many times. The show itself is a scarily on-point exploration of toxic masculinity and the ways we are so often seduced by dangerous men. It's also incredibly campy and ridiculous and I loved every second.

    Once I was done watching it, I naturally turned to Twitter to see how other people felt about it. And here are some of my fave tweets...

    1.
