You Producer Says People Fancying Joe Shows Humans Don't Have Good Instincts
Gripping thriller You recently returned for a second series, and people can't get enough of it.
Specifically, they can't get enough of the show's murderous main character Joe, played by Penn Badgley, with some fans even wishing he would stalk them.
Does this sound like you? Yes? Well, the good thing is you are not alone - judging by the response to the show, there are plenty of others who feel exactly the same and don't know what to think about it.
But according to You producer Sera Gamble, this reaction proves that humans just don't have good instincts when it comes to choosing a partner.
Speaking to LADbible, she said: "Part of the point of the show is that this is something many of us are scared of - that we'll pick the wrong person, who seems so great on the outside, but on the inside is a whole different story.
"I think it's very reasonable to be concerned about that, because it's so hard to ever really know another person.
"And because when it comes to love, well, humans don't exactly have a reputation for great instincts. Or even good instincts."
Since the new series aired late last year, viewers have been taking to Twitter to voice their love for the troubled - but 'hot' - character.
One confused viewer wrote: "Watching season 2 of You again bc joe/will is so hot i'm sorry."
Professing their love, a second said: "Lol at this point wouldn't mind being with someone like Joe from You I mean he's overly dedicated, hot, notices everything... love that."
While another viewer added: "Yeah i know Will/Joe in You is borderline sociopathic but he is SO hot."
Not everyone has been taken in by Joe's charms, however - some people were adamant that he was not to be admired.
Hitting back at those who had confessed their love for the murder, one person said: "Y'all think joe/will from You is so hot and sexy until you're actually in a relationship where he's stalking you/ruining your relationships/isolating you/mentally abusing you/ruining your chances at happiness with someone other than him."
