Eye Candy is an American thriller TV series that aired on MTV in 2015. The show is based on a 2004 novel of the same name by R.L. Stine. The series stars Victoria Justice as Lindy Sampson, a tech genius who starts online dating to find a new boyfriend. However, she soon discovers that one of her flings is a serial killer, and she sets out to catch him before he kills again.

The show's protagonist, Lindy Sampson, is a talented hacker who runs a website called "Find Me," where she helps people track down lost loved ones. After her sister was kidnapped years ago, Lindy became obsessed with finding her and helping others who have faced similar situations. While she's searching for love on an online dating app, Lindy discovers a real-life serial killer is using the same platform to find his victims.

Lindy is joined by her roommate, Sophia (Kiersey Clemons), and her hacker friend, George (John Garet Stoker), as they try to hunt down the killer. Lindy also has a love interest in the show, Tommy (Casey Jon Deidrick), a detective who begins to help her with the case. The group uncovers a web of mystery and danger that leads them to take risks and navigate through dangerous situations.

One of the things that stands out about Eye Candy is its use of social media within the storyline. The show explores the dark side of online dating, where people can pretend to be anyone they want to be and harm others without any repercussions. The show also touches on the topic of revenge porn, where someone's private images are shared without their consent, which is a real-life issue in our society today.

Victoria Justice does an excellent job playing Lindy, a complex and relatable character. Lindy is smart and resourceful, but she also has flaws and fears like anyone else. Her backstory with her sister's kidnapping provides emotional depth to the character, and the audience can't help but root for her as she tries to solve the case.

The chemistry between the cast members is also apparent. Lindy's friendship with Sophia and George feels genuine, and their banter adds a nice touch of humor to the show. Casey Jon Deidrick also does a great job playing Tommy, who starts off as a potential love interest but ends up becoming an important ally in the investigation.

The show's pacing is well-executed, and there are plenty of twists and turns to keep the audience engaged. The killer's identity is unknown for most of the season, which keeps the suspense high. The show also doesn't shy away from showing the killer's gruesome murders, which adds a sense of urgency to the investigation.

One of the criticisms of the show is that it can be predictable at times. Some of the plot points are standard in the thriller genre, and viewers can guess what will happen next. However, the strong performances from the cast and the show's visual style make up for the lack of originality in the storyline.

In conclusion, Eye Candy is an engaging thriller that explores the dangers of online dating and social media. The talented cast, led by Victoria Justice, delivers compelling performances and keeps the audience invested in the story. The show's use of technology and social media adds a unique element to the show, and the suspenseful plot keeps the audience on the edge of their seats.

Eye Candy is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (11 episodes). The series first aired on January 12, 2014.
