Y.O.U …

Sharing is caring!

Such an addictive series.

Bila sudah bermula, jangan kau mimpi hendak berpatah balik. Memang susah! It can just hook your addiction from one episode to another, simply by clicking ‘next for episode **’ or ‘skip recap’. Yes, to that extent.

I will be writing on my very own opinion on the whole episodes. Sedikit lain bunyinya sebab tak nak bagi review yang klise (kekdahnya!).

Instead of just looking on the wide spectrum, let me dig and analyse for you on how this series is way worthy of your time watching, rather than seeing Lelaki Kiriman Tuhan or Pujaan Hati Kanda (jangan kecam please, cause I watch Remy Ishak too!).

Macam mana boleh terjebak?

One thing for sure Netflix has tremendous options for you to enjoy. It’s just between you and you.

Netflix will definitely conquer you in any way possible. Just choose the right movies to watch. Boleh dikatakan semua pun bagus-bagus belaka. Pilih ikut genre kegemaran sahaja, atau pilih ikut review best yang boleh anda jumpa.

Speaking on YOU, saya sukakan every character that appears in their episodes.

Simply because of ONE definite reason.

All of them has one SIMILAR trait which is the unsettled issues within each individual.

Jujur kakak katakan, at first, I was actually fascinated to know about the girl named Beck, which is described as an aspiring writer mentioned in many reviews.

Sekali, bila lihat keseluruhan jalan cerita, I could say the contained, unsolved issues in each character from Joe Goldberg to Peach Salinger, are the centrepiece of why such conflicts turned to awesome plots and storyline.

The psychopathic Joe adalah contoh terpaling ketara kenapa saya katakan demikian.

Kenapa? Ingat tidak sesekali munculnya watak Mooney, guardian si Joe yang senantiasalah muncul dengan tahap bengis-kononnya-mengajar-Joe-how-to-value-books-to-death itu?

That’s his root problem. But amazingly Joe is very much equipped with high-valued skills when it comes to handling books, and writers too, I guess. (Ngeri wei!)

Joe, dengan watak yang begitu, pada saya, he’s not guilty, wholly.

Tafsiran saya, terlalu banyak konflik dalaman diri yang tidak ‘settled down’, ditambah pula dengan persekitaran New York yang ‘so much happening’ membuatkan Joe terperangkap di antara keinginan (cintanya terhadap Beck) dan keperluan dirinya untuk menjadi a perfect human on earth in loving everybody he cares so much (sungguhpun emosinya tersangatlah tidak stabil) — it’s a big LOOPHOLE there, though.

Secondly, on Beck. 

Beck dan rakan-rakan adalah contoh millenials hari ini. They truly resembles such group in this world that in high passions to derive themselves from being real, like them in their pathetic world who are unloved and gained not enough love (… as told by Joe in his monologue).

Sejenis suka mengada-adakan cerita dan menggembar-gemburkan siapa diri mereka di laman sosial media, ke tahap terpaling maksima they can make people impressed with their outfits, appearance and styles.

Dan kesemua descriptions ini nampak tersangat cantik dan lawa menerusi skrip, monolog si Joe dari pemulaan episod sampailah ke minit akhir keseluruhan 10 episod nie. Seriously!

After two weeks released, this series has gained so many words and attention from all the Netflix viewers in the world.

Apparently, this novel adaptation from writer Caroline Kepnes selayaknya dihayati sebagai satu karya yang patut semua orang lihat sebagai ‘penyakit’ dalam dunia hari ini.

I think I’ve given you a big hint of how this story can best be classified – psychopath, thus expect the unexpected. It’s just too psychotic kalau dari episod pertama lagi sudah tunjuk ‘keganasan’ yang Joe potentially capable of doing. Ngee.

How I wish I could have read the novel first.

Thus, this is how I look at this series.

Betapa rapuhnya seseorang itu kalau ‘isu dalaman’ dalam diri tidak diatasi segera dan ditangani sewajarnya.

Terkadang, khayalan atau imaginasi penulis buku dan novel ini adalah kerana reflek kehidupan sebenar hari ini dan akan datang, yang berani mereka zahirkan dengan abjad dan kata-kata.

Atau mungkin pengalaman penulis itu sendiri ( .. atau sahaja anugerah Tuhan yang memberi mereka ini daya imaginasi yang tinggi dan kreatif. How I wish I am granted and given such talent, wei!)

Watch YOU if you’re thrilled.

Elak sahaja lihat bersama-sama anak-anak, cause it might teach you a lesson on becoming good, prepared parents.

Next on Netflix, suggestion?

Imagine if Joe Goldberg is one charming man who are not into killings and obsessions. Weee!
