Spoiler-Free Review of “You” Season 3 on Netflix: Best Season Yet!

**This is a spoiler-free review of season 3 so feel free to read on!**

“We are the best team…”

You is back for a third season as we follow Joe to the suburbs. Season 3 premiered on October 15th 2021, featuring ten episodes available to stream now on Netflix (approximately 45-50 minutes in length). The show stars Penn Badgley, Victoria Pedretti, Dylan Arnold, Shalita Grant, Scott Speedman and Tati Gabrielle.

You season 3 continues the relationship of Joe and Love in their new home as they welcome their new child into the world, but some old habits are hard to break when it comes to jealousy and obsession…

Here is the trailer:

You has always been a binge-watcher’s dream but season 3 was beyond addicting. It transformed the show into something even greater, giving us plenty to talk about. Is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Dream duo!

I really enjoyed the first two seasons of You, but season 3 was a game changer for me and part of that was thanks to the dynamic between Joe and Love. Joe is off his game in a lot of ways and Love keeps him on his toes. They are both dangerous and deadly and I loved the Bonnie and Clyde/Mr. and Mrs. Smith vibe going on throughout the season. 

If you think your marriage has issues, watch these two!

Great new characters.

I loved all of the new characters introduced. They really added to the whole suburban environment. We know that people wind up in serious trouble when they cross paths with Joe and Love, but I thought that some of the interactions were really outrageous in a good way and they kept me invested throughout my watch.

The Cons:

Where do we go from here?

There will be no spoilers in this review but A LOT happened in season 3 and now I’m left wondering what’s next for Joe? I really liked the new direction of the show so we’ll have to see if it can keep that momentum going since season 4 has already been confirmed. This isn’t necessarily a con, but I hope that the next season can keep the level of intensity going because this show is really addicting!

So am I in or out?

I’m in!

This was my favorite season so far! I loved the dynamic between Joe and Love and I could not stop watching this show. I finished all ten episodes in just over a day because it was that addicting!

Spoiler-Free Review of “October Faction” on Netflix: Freakish Potential with Flat Delivery

**This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!**

A Mr. and Mrs. Smith type couple that fights supernatural monsters while balancing in some normal family drama.  Sounds like it could be oozing with eerie potential.

October Faction premiered on Netflix on January 23rd 2020 with 10 new episodes (40 minutes in length).  It stars Tamara Taylor, J.C. MacKenzie, Aurora Burghart, Gabriel Darku, and Maxim Roy.

The show is based on the comic series, The October Faction, introducing us to the Allen family.  After a family tragedy, The Allens move back to their hometown, but the supernatural threats continue to track them down.  Deloris and Fred’s twin children, Viv and Geoff, also deal with their own share of issues, especially when they start to discover that they may have some supernatural abilities of their own.

This is not the first time we have seen a horror/supernatural series try to balance out monsters and demons with family drama.  Think of successful series like Supernatural, Charmed, and Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House.  While the show has a lot of promise and potential, it seems like a lot of it was stifled by the uninspiring execution, along with the timing of being released the day prior to Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

That being said, October Faction does have some redeeming qualities, but is it worthy of your next binge-watch?  Let’s find out…

The Pros:

A fantastic villain with otherworldly abilities.

Played by Maxim Roy, Alice, really breathes new life into the show.  The mystery surrounding her is the most intriguing part of the series and she really performs some cringe-worthy acts with her powers that will make you think twice about going up against her.

Likable characters.

The Allen family may have a lot of dark secrets, but they also deal with everyday problems as well.  The balance works well, as we leave the monster hunting in the background and focus on the character dynamics.

The twins, Viv and Geoff, have to deal with a lot of identity searching in high school and their performances are believable and captivating.  Plus, they have some pretty awesome abilities too!

The Cons:

Way too much set-up in the opening episodes.

The show starts off really slow and boring with a few sprinkles of potential here and there, but it was honestly a struggle to watch episodes 1-3.  Normally, if this was a weekly show, I would have tuned out by now, but I gave it a chance since I could watch all the episodes at once.

Surprisingly, episodes 4-9 are actually quite brilliant and the plot really takes off with interesting twists and reveals.  However, I can’t ignore the fact that the first three episodes are just so uninspiring and I have a feeling many of you might tune out.  However, if you are willing to take a chance, episode 4 is where things really start to pick up.

So am I in or out?

This is a tough one.  I’m in for episodes 4-9, which were binge-watch worthy, but overall, I am out because the opening episodes were so dull and the ending was kind of all over the place.  I’m frustrated about this one because this show could have been fantastic and it almost felt rushed and clumsily put together.

I would recommend that you watch shows like Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and Light as a Feather first if you are looking for an entertaining supernatural watch, but if you are willing to put the work into watching October Faction, there are some entertaining moments sprinkled in.

I hope you enjoyed the review and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on October Faction in the comments section below.  Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!
