A nimble pace and strong performances from the leads make this cyber thriller a binge-worthy treat. The show looks great, too, from the Franke family's catalog-worthy, light-filled contemporary home to the shadowy tech dens where unwashed, hoodie-clad computer geeks hang out. It's always enjoyable to watch an attractive and sympathetic everyman character try to clear his name as an unknown assailant does everything in their power to turn the man's entire life -- and his own family -- against him. It's a formula that has worked time and again in shows and films like The Fugitive and North by Northwest. The fact that Lukas Franke's nightmare is borne out of relatable situations and ubiquitous objects (laptops, security cameras, bank transfers) makes it particularly gripping fun.

Amazon is hoping to make things easy on U.S. audiences by offering this German-made drama in an English-dubbed version, but the new voice performances are distractingly wooden. If you don't mind turning on English subtitles instead, it's highly preferable to watch You Are Wanted in the original German. Whether you speak the language or not, the actors' authentic intonations make for a better viewing experience.
