Verdict: You season 4 part 1 smartly adds mystery elements to the murder soap and explores more overt “eat the rich” themes. Interesting new characters inject energy and flair, while Penn Badgley continues to give a solid performance as protagonist Joe Goldberg. You knows it is a farce and leans into the ridiculousness of the plot, knowing its absurdity is addictive.
Enthralling whodunnit plot
Great new characters and casting
