Fans Are Really Creeped Out Watching Netflix's You Without Joe's Voiceovers
| Last updated
Hey, if you're a fan of the hit TV show You, then you'll be excited to learn that Netflix has been creating a few short meme videos that show the series in a new - yet also incredibly unnerving - light.
They've removed Joe's narration from the scenes to make them arguably more terrifying.
Basically, the show - as fans will already be aware - is based on a series of novels by Caroline Kepnes and tells the story of 'Joe', an obsessive stalker with murderous tendencies.
One of the major features of the incredibly successful show has been the monologues delivered in Joe's head by actor Penn Badgley. What Netflix has done is taken away the voiceover and left the scenes speechless.
It's every bit as creepy as hearing Badgley talking quietly over it. In fact, it might be even more chilling without the lines.
Naturally, after they shared their discovery, a whole heap of fans of the show have been weighing in with their own opinions on the now sound-less performance.
One Twitter user said: "Well that is just weird. Imagine what all them people must think. This dude just stands there and stares for a very long time."
When you put it that way, he is really creepy isn't he? That's before you get to the part where he imprisons and murders people and breaks into women's' houses.
Another person offered: "This just lets you know that these people overlooking how weird this dude is."
During the first season of You, we saw Joe - as he was calling himself back then - fall madly in love with Guinevere Beck, which - as you might imagine - came to something of a shocking climax.
Now, we've got the second series, which is based on the second novel, Hidden Bodies.
In this series, Joe - now going by the name Will - has moved to Los Angeles in order to escape his past. It goes without saying that he can never quite manage that.
He's developed a new obsession with a girl who is handily called Love, but also has an unhealthy preoccupation with his own mother as well.
That leaves is asking the question about whether season three - which hasn't actually been confirmed yet - will see him focus his attentions on his dear mother.
As for whether it will happen or not, showrunner Sera Gamble recently said: "Absolutely it could come back for season three."
However, she then clarified: "First of all, it's up to the powers that be. We hope that a lot of people will watch the show and that it gets to continue.
"I will say that we have an idea for season three that is SO exciting that people talk about it in the [writer's] room every day.
"So my fingers are crossed... I'll just say, I hope we get the chance to keep making the show."
Well, let's hope they keep the voiceovers. It's way too creepy without them.
