"Making A Murderer" is a 10-part Netflix documentary that explores the story of Steven Avery, a Manitowoc County, Wisconsin man, who wrongfully served 18 years in prison for the sexual assault and attempted murder of Penny Beerntsen, before being exonerated in 2003. In 2005 he was arrested in connection with the murder of Teresa Halbach, a local photographer, and convicted in 2007. The series also covers the arrest, prosecution, and conviction of Avery's nephew, Brendan Dassey, who was also charged in the murder.
This, without the slightest hint of a doubt, is some of the most riveting, and compelling piece of media I have ever seen--much less television programming (if you can even call it that because it is a Netflix exclusive afterall). One being that all of the things that have happened in this documentary is just so ridiculous it's unbelievable. And most importantly, it's all based in real life and all the people involved are still out there! I mean, the amount of outright incompetence and crooked corruption that most probably took place within the internal justice system during the entire thing is just downright sickening to a point.
Obviously, I will not be going into spoiler territory just because you might end up watching this (which I highly recommend). All I can do right now really is write about how much this show made me cry in outrage while tuning in to its entirety. It is like watching a crazy movie where you find yourself saying, "No way, that couldn't happen in real life." but it is real fucking life. Everything about this series and the events that unfold is just mind-blowing. With the borderline-insane things that unfold, there's so much to feel sorry and sad for after watching this documentary, but I couldn't help but to find myself feeling great sorrow for the mother the most out of everyone (you'll see what I mean if you do happen to start watching it).
So yeah...holy shit. Watch "Making A Murderer"! It has been the talk of a lot of podcasts, blogs, and a lot of other media outlets since it came out last December and very much deserves the buzz. I have nothing but sympathy for the Avery family for what they have gone through for the past 2 decades or so and hope that somehow, but someone's doing, that this whole inhumane and unfair legal clusterfuck gets settled.
Personal rating: 9/10
