Making a Murderer

Quote:
Filmed over a 10-year period, Making a Murderer is an unprecedented real-life thriller about Steven Avery, a DNA exoneree who, while in the midst of exposing corruption in local law enforcement, finds himself the prime suspect in a grisly new crime. Set in America's heartland, the series takes viewers inside a high-stakes criminal case where reputation is everything and things are never as they appear.



All 10 episode are on Netflix today. After the first episode this seems good.

Re: Making a Murderer

Was not convinced after 1 ep.

But 4 hours later and I'm on to ep 5! It's pulled me in with some strong eps/twists.

Ep 1-4 chat:

What is the "false imprisonment" charge that keeps getting mentioned? Who was falsely imprisoned?

Re: Making a Murderer

HOLY ****!!!!!

I heard about this, but didn't think I'd give it a shot, at least not for awhile. But that trailer.... I had no idea it was actually about this. This is as effecting a trailer I've seen since Dear Zachary.

Re: Making a Murderer

Into court room stuff and this is really great TV, the access all areas is just like The Staircase (which, since finishing I have been wishing it would be possible to watch again for the first time over and over).

Re: Making a Murderer

I binge watched the whole series last night. I just had to find out the ending. I would hope to see more discussion on this forum as people finish watching the series. It is amazing how the justice system with all its checks and balances in place, can be used effectively to convict a man with very few physical evidences against him.

Re: Making a Murderer

I watched the first ep at like 5 AM my time yesterday. And then bingewatched the rest of it in one single go. I can't even say that for any of their original drama series (which I like, to be clear). Was a really excellent watch.

Re: Making a Murderer

My god. It just won't stop. There is a new huge revelation every 30 seconds. This is just insane!!

I just started ep5 and might end up finishing it tonight. And I'm on 4 hours sleep from the night before and up since 7am. I'm wide the **** awake now.

Re: Making a Murderer

Just got done watching all 10. I did 6 Sunday, 4 Monday.

One thing that was great throughout was the media questions to the attorneys, they seemed to have a strong grasp on the case, asking the right questions and reading between the lines. It would have been interesting to hear some personal opinion from them too.

Some of them were smoking hot too, I'd let a few of those ladies give me an up close and personal grilling.

The shorter lawyer looks like the one from the staircase:

Re: Making a Murderer

Had to google after watching 3 episodes, couldn't bear watching another 7 hours.

Dear Zachary was brutal but was only 1.5 hours in length. 10 hours+ is way too long.

Re: Making a Murderer

Watched the first episode and thought it was good although I was surprised to see there are 10 episodes. It's a pretty significant investment of time... is there enough here to justify the length of the series? Trying to decide if I should continue to plough through tomorrow night or just hit Google and read up on the case.

Re: Making a Murderer

I think it could've been done in 8 or so. But it could've even gone to 20 episodes. There is so much more to this story then we saw. Namely the other side altogether.

These 10 were so damn engrossing that I would've loved for it to have kept going.

Re: Making a Murderer

I will say that I felt similarly after finishing the first ep; Okay, wait, this was super good, but how can there be 10 episodes?

But as said, I straight binged it all in one go. It really is that good, and there really is much to cover. If I had to define a lull, it would maybe be episode 3, but episode 4 to 8 especially are super riveting and once you get to the second trial you will be happy that there are so many episodes.

Re: Making a Murderer

Flew through the first 6 eps and am mindblown. What a crazy, scary, gross story. Will finish up later.

This guy needs a good ****ing beating. Would love to see him get thrown in gen. pop.

Re: Making a Murderer

The whole thing is insane enough that I wouldn't have been the least bit surprised if the final shot was a VO saying "But what if they all knew Teresa Halbach was still alive" and show her in a cabin somewhere.
