Arguably one best of Netflix’s documentary series available. This show exploded into the Netflix original family with huge ratings and even bigger success. Mystery, murder, intrigue, scandal, evidence. These are just some words to rally all inquisitive minds to solve these murders from the comfort of your own home.
If you don’t already know, Making A Murderer is about the criminal case of Steven Avery. He is from Manitowoc County in the state of Wisconsin. So Avery was convicted of sexual assault and attempted murder back in 1985 when he was in his early 20’s. He then served 18 years of a 32-year sentence.
After 18 years had passed, he was exonerated by DNA testing due to technological advances in criminal investigations. After all of this, Avery is then again convicted of murder by the same police force in 2007. They also convict his nephew, Brendan Dassey (favorite character alert) who has since been released because of the show. Dassey was clearly swayed by the police. But we will let you decide.
We love to see justice done and what is more of a killer headline than a wrongfully accused murderer? We want to believe Avery is innocent. We want to blame our own judicial system. We want to know what really happened. And who cannot relate to the fear of being wrongfully accused of something and then being punished for it.
The good news is that there are 10 episodes in the season, with each episode being a little over an hour long. You will get the unbiased version of this story.
They do a great job of going back and forth on the evidence. We can say that throughout the show we had thoughts going from innocent to guilty, back to innocent, back to guilty and then to innocent again. This show is an emotional roller coaster but one we can’t wait to ride again in season 2.
4/5 stars for this show and a 10/10 rating for binge worthy success
