2. You:

On almost every other series, Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley) would be an antagonist. But on You, this compulsive stalker and murderer is a fan loved anti-hero. Joe just can’t control or rather should I say help himself. Whenever a pretty young woman falls in his vision, he manoeuvres himself into their lives and often goes on a death row in the way of his happiness.
Based on the bestselling novel of the same name, “What would you do for love?” written by Caroline Kepnes.

It’s a series about how when a bookstore manager crosses paths with a wannabe writer, his answer becomes clear: anything. Using the internet and social media as his tools to collect the most confidential details to get close to her, a pleasing and cumbersome crush quickly becomes a compulsion as he silently and methodically removes every obstacle – and person – in his way.

Parts 1 and 2 of the fourth season of You just premiered, and it revolves around Joe in a weird position of trying to escape his past life of bedlam behind and start afresh in London. But he is such a supreme artist of killing that art finds its way to Joe, his ability to kill and hide bodies just can’t let him go off the hook even while he’s trying to go off the radar.

3. Shadow and Bone:
