    Making a Murderer Documentary (Teresa Halbach Murder - Steven Avery/Brandan Dassey)

    Anyone else caught this on Netflix yet?! It's a 10 episode documentary series covering about 10 years of time, I think they are a little over an hour each. It popped up and I started watching it late Saturday, spent most of Sunday watching, and finished it last night. I couldn't stop watching it! It's really incredible and infuriating. My husband is not interested in true-crime like I am, but he watched it all with me as well and was just as riveted.

    Without giving anything away; it involves a guy who was exonerated for a rape he did not commit and released after 18 years, then he starts a multi-million dollar lawsuit against people, and suddenly he's charged with the murder of a missing woman.

    Since I had not heard of the case before I know nothing much of it aside from the documentary, but it seemed to me to be a fairly level and unbiased, as much as it can be since it focuses on the Avery family and the defense. So, it clearly leans in their favour still, but I don't think the filmmakers had to go out of their way to make the other side look awful, they did that themselves. I need to do a bit more reading about the other side so I can see what was left out, but at this point going on the assumption that it was a fairly accurate depiction, I can not believe the bullshit involved with this case.

    I don't want to ruin anything for anyone who might watch it. I suggest you do. Immediately. and then come back and post, because I need to talk about this! The past three days 90% of what my husband and I have said to each other has involved this case lol but I really want to talk to other people about this!!

    I have so many thoughts and feelings and potential theories... someone watch it and talk to me!!!

    I binge watched the entire series this weekend. It infuriated me so much, I made my sister watch it so we could bitch about it together.

    Unbelievably frustrating to watch. The detectives' interrogation skills mirrored those that interviewed Jessie Misskelley of the West Memphis Three.

    My pap and I watched the first 8. We saw all of Steven's trial and then today or tomorrow we're going to watch Brandon's. I cheated and googled and saw what happens to Brandon.

    Yeah, it totally reminded me of Jessie Misskelley. I wanted to punch his first lawyer in the face so many times! and the fact that his lawyer screwing him over isn't enough to get his case looked at again?! He should be disbarred for that conduct.

    It's hard to comment, because I really don't want to say anything that will spoil it for people who are going to watch it. Some of the things that the prosecutor and police actually said were so just...wtf?!? I just... it's like, they are so so comfortable with their boys club down there that they aren't even worried in the least about what comes out of their mouths. If this had been fiction, I would have thought the writer just went way overboard with it.

    I find it so frustrating AND I'm so far away from the case and the area it happened; I can't imagine actually living in that community and knowing that the police and justice system there are so absolutely corrupt. I know there is corruption all over the place, but it seems incredibly widespread there.

    I'm on episode 4, I had to turn off last night, I was about to punch the screen.
    The defence lawyer for the kid is a complete tool, he's not listening to him at all, as for the investigator of the lawyer....well, if I was in that room, I'd probably end up being locked up for GBH (or whatever you have in the U.S) I can see myself getting very wound up about the injustice of the justice system.

    Unfortunately, it just gets even more infuriating. You might want to bubble wrap your hand in prepartion for the next few episodes.

    Just saw this post, and I've seen this popping up on my Facebook timeline. I watch a ton of stuff at work -- I'm allowed to, boss doesn't care -- so this is going to be a must watch on my list now. Sounds fascinating!

    Okay, everyone hurry up because it's getting very hard not to keep my trap shut and I'm really trying not to spoil anything for anyone!

    So, don't read this if you haven't finished it yet. Anonymous has decided to lend their assistance with the case;
    http://toptiding.com/anonymous-will-...ng-a-murderer/

    I can't wait to see what comes out!!

    Also, I just realized I made two big boo-boos in the title; it should be spelled Halbach with an 'a' for the victim, and it should be Brendan Dassey not Brandan.

    Well, that was...infuriating.

    It was the ten-hour true crime equivalent of my dad hollering at the refs on TV when they make a bad call. Seriously I think it's the first time I've come out of a binge watch with a sore throat.

    I've been reading the Reddit threads and articles posted until we can discuss it here. Oh man - there is some scream worthy shit there.
