An interesting view of human connection
This show is definitely one to binge. A lot of the negative reviews here pick at the show for being unrealistic and having unlikeable characters but that's exactly the premis of this show. Some of the characters are purposefully obnoxious to play on the notion of Beck being surrounded by toxic people which she totally is and that she needs to be saved. Joe sees himself as her night in shining armor ready to swoop in and save her from her pretentious friends/ex-lover. As for the show beind unrealistic; I don't believe it is to a drastic degree. Most if not all tv shows/films are unrealistic to some extent but isn't that why we watch them? To escape reality and watch something that's entertaining and thought provoking. This show does just that. It's a great binge that comments on the ease of stalking people and gathering information through social media in a completely realistic and accurate way. It becomes a slippery slope for Joe as he goes through great lengths to "save" Beck from herself. The scandal, murder, cover-ups, and plot twists are all just icing on the cake. This show is definitely worth watching till the end although I do feel it should've taken the anthology route and ended with episode 10 but we'll wait and see if the next season can deliver the same charisma.
