You is a Lifetime production that first aired in September. It became popular after Netflix picked it up. The thriller centers around psychotic stalker Joe Goldberg as he’s pursuing his love interest, Beck. It builds on a romantic comedy trope of a persistent man winning a woman. But the persistence, in this case, becomes a form of troublesome stalking.
