Netflix's You Without Joe's Narration Is Even Creepier
The streaming giant released a short clip of the show, minus Joe's (played by Penn Badgley) inner monologue.
You, which has already been renewed for a second season, tells the story of bookshop worker Joe who meets and falls in love with Guinevere Beck, played by Elizabeth Lail. However, rather than your usual 'boy meets girl' romantic love story, Joe becomes completely obsessed with Beck and will seemingly stop at nothing to make sure he wins her over.
If you've seen the show, you'll know that Joe's thoughts are a major part of it, giving viewers a glimpse into his twisted mind, so if you take them away what you are left with? Well, not very much actually.
In the clip, which is just under two minutes long, the silences speak volumes, particularly in the super awkward scene where Joe and Beck sleep together for the first time and it's all over in seconds...
Without the narration, we get to see a lot of Joe's intense gaze and one scene features the single word 'falafel' used as an explanation.
Laid over the clips, Netflix writes: "For someone so obsessed with keeping a relationship alive, Joseph, there's a lot of dead air," which is a pretty good point.
The drama has been hailed as the 'creepiest show ever' by viewers, but that hasn't stopped people watching with statistics revealing that it was streamed more than 40 million times during its first month on Netflix. Pretty bloody impressive.
The success of the show meant that a second season was pretty much a foregone conclusion and Netflix confirmed just weeks after the first one landed.
Netflix has also revealed that Haunting of Hill House star Victoria Pedrett has been cast for the second season, where she will play Love Quinn, an aspiring chef is unfortunate enough to catch the eye of Joe.
Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter, showrunner Sera Gamble said: "Joe can't stop looking over his shoulder. The problem with hidden bodies is that they don't always stay that way. They re-emerge, like dark thoughts, multiplying and threatening to destroy what Joe wants most: true love.
"And when he finds it in a darkened room in Soho House, he's more desperate than ever to keep his secrets buried. He doesn't want to hurt his new girlfriend - he wants to be with her forever.
"But if she ever finds out what he's done, he may not have a choice."
