Netflix’s You is one of the darkest shows ever to grace the television screen, and these quotes prove it.
My friends told me time and time again that I should be watching You on Netflix — but I kept putting it off. With the release of season two (and lots of begging) I finally started watching — and I could not stop. I was constantly thinking about You and what was going to happen. This show is Dark. Really dark. And I love it.
