You

I watched this series to the end. 10 episodes. I would say it's pretty good. I don't want to oversell it because the key to enjoying anything is to not set your expectations too high. But I'd give it a solid B+.

Boy meets girl. Boy stalks the shit out of girl. They fall in love . . .

The protagonist is an anti-hero. Not a good person by objective criteria, but you find yourself rooting for him nonetheless. He's a creeper; a stalker. But not completely without some redeeming qualities.

Apparently chicks like him a lot too, I gather. The whole production seems to have been mainly made by women. But don't hold that against it.

Ugly guy = Stalker

Cute guy = Shy
Such potential!

Well, this being Hollywood, the guy they got to play the stalker probably gets all the pussy he wants IRL.

He's not even "Hollywood ugly". And chicks are into him even though he's an objectively bad person most of the time (with a few charming quirks and good deeds to balance things out). But this shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone.

Many high-profile criminals, particularly those who have committed atrocious crimes, receive "fan mail" in prison that is sometimes amorous or sexual, presumably as a result of this phenomenon. In some cases, admirers of these criminals have gone on to marry the object of their affections in prison.[3][4]
