Making a Murderer: Season 1 Reviews

  • Sep 04, 2019

    Must see take on some of the things that can go wrong in a case. Even if Avery is guilty, there needs to be a reckoning with how this case was handled. Justice cannot prevail police and prosecutors aren't held to exacting standards. The way they handled this could easily result in innocent people being locked away (and Avery appears to be innocent based off of this series).

    Might be interesting but it was far too slow so I only made it half way through the first episode.

    I liked it a lot and it was fun to discuss with friends. However, I think this dude is guilty as sin.

    If you're looking for a series that will not only keep you glued but also get you fired up, Making a Murderer is that series! It isn't often that I find a show that captivates my attention in a way that truly interferes with my daily life. Regardless of what other important things I had to get done, I just couldn't pull myself away. Consider yourself warned.

    I am so devoted to this documentary series. I am flabbergasted on how these 2 men are still in prison with so much corruption and wrongful actions taken by the state. There should be a new trail for both of them due to the states lack of professionalism and lack of justice. The state should have taken the rightful steps that Ms. Zellner did and not hide & plant evidence to frame 2 innocent men! I feel even more so saddened for Brendan Dassey's mother. I couldn't imagine having my son stripped away from me & take 10+ years away from me & him over them making him falsely confess. My prayers go out to the family and I hope that Zellner is able to trace the evidence to the TRUE killer to Teresa Halbach. So the Halbach's family can have a sense of peace, Teresa have peace & so 2 innocent men to finally be free. #PrayingForJustice

    it is amazing how broken the justice system is in wisconsin. i used to go to Oshkosh for the big airshow but i will never go again for fear that some corrupt cop will take a fancy to me. the supreme court of the us should take a look at this flawed state.

    Making a Murderer is an interesting documentary and does a great job of highlighting the failures of the American justice system. Throughout the twists and turns of the documentary you will be kept questioning Avery's (and Dassey's) guilt and questioning how either of these trials were considered fair. Unfortunately the questions that the show raises all fall apart once you start doing a bit more research into the cases. Whilst the claim is that this was approached from a neutral viewpoint, when you look into the sheer volume of key evidence that has been left out of the documentary, it's clear that at some point during filming the angle shifted to a desire to show Avery as a framed man regardless of what the evidence actually suggests. It cheapens the impact of the documentary, leaving it feel more like an attempt at emotional manipulation than a real eye opener.
