Audience Reviews for I Am a Killer: Season 1

    I feel this is a good depiction of the complexity of people ending up in prison. As an audience, we want to have a story that is simple, the good guy, the bad guy, the hurt guy. Something we can moralise about or feel pity for. Enter the whole obsession with psychopathy. Apparently nowadays anyone remotely bad is a psychopath. Or a victim themselves. Simple and convenient explanations. But life is complex and the reasons that drive people to crime can be as chaotic as their lives were. I think this show does a very good job to question what is our humanity and sit with the uncomfortable notion that many times criminals might be very traumatised people themselves and even more uncomfortable sometimes they are indeed just bad people but not inherently evil. They are still humans representing a side of humanity we don't like to acknowledge, yet it is still real. It is scary how comparable our attitudes towards the incarcerated are to that of the homeless or even the seriously ill or disabled.

    Immoral and very disappointing. Why would Netflix would give many of these remorseless, self righteously blameless people a platform? Shoddy excuses and scapegoating does not make for a convincing unheard "other side" of the story. Particularly when the victims are completely neglected throughout each episode, hardly even mentioning their lives or who they were. Furthermore, most episodes feature the same unrealistic and ridiculous religious arch among both the killers and the victims' families. As a concept, the show seems interesting. But upon watching the series, I deeply wonder why Netflix would enable such reckless, out of touch stories.

    I like this series, but I would like to see a larger focus on restorative justice. It sort of scratches the surface at times, but how much better would it be if the victim's families were encouraged to meet with the perpetrator with the goal of forgiveness.

    Hideous documentary that begs for sympathy to the killer with little regard for the victim. I am all about forgiveness but this killer used the church and it's homophobic beliefs to justify killing a man. He also throws in a sob story about being abused as a justification. News flash: Many people are abused & don't commit murdered in cold blood. Shame on you Netflix. In a time where we are trying to move forward, you publish things that set us back.

    This show was disgusting and a slap in the face to the victims family...for that I apologize and feel for them. For the perpetrator (Dale) to blame the victim and use fear of homosexuality to appeal to the church congregation and parole board to gain acceptance is revolting. Dale needs to be locked up for life and should never have been allowed to tell his story, the victim didn't. Then to blame the victim repeatedly and for that to become his crutch, disgusting and I won't continue to watch or support that. Shame on you Netflix!

    This show puts the spotlight on a selfish killer with complete disregard of the victim and his family. Every moment the show recorded the murderer talking about how grateful he is to experience the world and I expect some big revelation in the end. Instead I felt dirty for completing the series. I felt, like this series, that I had glorified a murderer. This man is dangerous. He tries to justify his slaying of the victim by fingering the homophobia that is still very prevelant today. Please be warned. This film can be harmful to those in the LGBTQIA community. You do NOT deserve to die.

    This is a fucking hideous documentary based on 100% of the all the gay people who never escape from the measures of religion, secrecy, and lies. I know because I grew up in it. hes guilty. hes gay. theres no excuse except no therapy. he should serve life or die.

    Released in the bible belt of America this convicted murderer blames the victim for a murder he committed. I found this series disturbing; 30 years in jail, parole Dale subjugates blame onto the victim. 109 people die everyday to gun violence,2017 info across USA, 12 per 100,000. The victims family were not given equitable response time to claims made by the parole. In this era of thriller crime shows to bolster Netflix ratings the humanity for the victims family seems to be all but lost, an the unfair inability to respond tragic.

    A great documentary to show how these people ended up on Death Row. Also show the families and friends of death row inmate and victims. Drugs, alcohol, sexual assault, violence and adult influences ere he pathways that led the convicts to end up behind bars and to death row. The inmates had either remorse or malice towards their actions, some received forgiveness and some did not. A great watch and understanding of what happens if you take a life or harm a person

    Who is the real victim here? All of these people seem to be making excuses for their actions and for taking the lives of others. The Netflix sad music behind their stories of why they committed murder makes me sick to my stomach.
