‘You’ needs to find a new formula

Bela Sanchez, Perspectives Editor

It appears that the writers are running out of ideas. I had high expectations for season three since it was teased in the promotional videos that it was going to be different from the other seasons, with Joe running away with his lover and him having to be a father. But, the writers still found a way to make this season like the other two. Joe finds a girl to stalk, he becomes close to her, the plan backfires, and he has to run away and this season was no different with even the dialogue failing to evolve during the season. “You” likes to make commentary on how people lie on social media to make their lives perfect and while that’s okay, it’s now starting to annoy and is starting to sound like those “social media bad” Messages. One of the only redeeming qualities of this season is the character, Love. She was a breath of fresh air because unlike the rest of Joe’s victims, she was just as insane as he was and her impulsivity left the viewers more invested on what she was going to do next. I am still going to remain optimistic about season four because the potential of the show is there, but in order for the show to reach that potential, the writers have to stop recycling storylines.
