News & Interviews for Making a Murderer: Season 1
Making a Murderer has the potential to be as popular and thought-provoking as its forebears-and to have real-life repercussions.
It's a fitting entry for Netflix, the king of binge-watching, as it's hard to hit pause on Making a Murderer once it's rolling through the queue.
This excellent series captures a system that so easily loses sight of its most important duty: finding justice for its victims.
They take complex legal subjects and make them interesting, boiling down mundane legal bureaucracy into a cohesive story that still is able to treat all victims - no matter what side of the cell bars they are on - with respect.
Is Avery the victim of corrupt authorities, a cold-blooded psychopath, or both? "Making a Murderer" implores viewers to keep up with each twist, and the result encourages binge-viewing with purpose.
Making a Murderer is shockingly, disturbingly, infuriatingly a true story which took place in Wisconsin between 1985 and the present, and let me tell you-it will devastate you.
Even if you've Googled the outcome of the trial, it's remarkable to watch it unfold on screen. That the events of Making a Murderer are messy, disturbing, baffling, and sometimes unknowable-it's real life, after all.
The traditionally schlocky true-crime genre has been invested with new purpose... The style is patient, understated, anti-sensational. We are invited to act as detectives and jurors, sorting the truths from the fictions and the clues from the red herring.
If you are even slightly convinced by its account of the injustices suffered by accused murderer Steven Avery, you will be infuriated and sickened to the core.
Making a Murderer is a gripping courtroom drama, a harsh critique of a flawed and corrupt system, and an angry call to action. Above all, Making a Murderer is the kind of work that has the power to save lives. Take that for a blurb.
Audience Reviews for Making a Murderer: Season 1
Feb 13, 2021Season 2 should be half the episodes, dragging it out a bit. Nevertheless fantastic series, well worth all the time to get thru. Unreal how corrupt and unfair the system can be to someone. You feel like this could happen to anyone, just not fair.
Oct 20, 2020Truly shocking! I'm more disgusted about my government than ever. You couldn't write this because it's so outlandish, you would think it's unbelievable... and it's real!!! Wow! One of the best, if not THE best documentary ever. So well done. It's better to be wrong and let a guilty man go free than to assume guilt and imprison an innocent man... especially with facts like these. This story was truly polarizing and says a lot how different people's perspectives really are.
Jan 30, 2020I am downloading season 2 at present. to me it looks like an awesome series. Just have not found season 1.Maybe you guys can help me out
Jan 14, 2020Who is innocent, and who is guilty? This series forces you to look deeply into the flawed criminal justice system. It doesn't matter if you believe Avery is innocent or guilty, you will still be outraged at the lengths the government will go to in order to avoid embarrassment.
Oct 01, 2019So, I saw this story briefly when it was on Dateline or one of those shows and it definitely gives you a lot to think about. I am just now watching season one of this and so far all I can say is I just do not know. On one hand you think if this guy could be so cruel as to burn a animal to death even as a kid that has to be a sign of something very screwed up right? But then his conviction and all the underhanded bs done by the sherrifs dept and the DA, and all they tried to cover up it definitely does not make it seem like believing they would try and frame him all that far fetched. I have never heard of any law that says the police can order the family not be allowed on their own property for 8 days?? Why? What is it they did not want them to see? Sure they would have to stay out of the way but they had the right to be present. And if Avery is smart enough to try and cover up her car in brush so it would not be seen by air, then why in the world would he not only keep her keys but then leave them lying on his bedroom floor for anyone to find?? And the fact now his ex gf and ex wife both want to say he is a monster but they were too scared to say anything before seems like a lot of BS to me and more like they were paid to talk about him by whatever rag mag offered them money. His ex wife wrote him letters saying she was going to kill their kids and then herself and she hated "these kids" and they are calling him the monster?? Any other person who wrote that would have had those kids taken in a second and if she was so scared of him why didn't she call the prison or the police and say she wanted no contact? And the gf now wants to say he is violent - guess he wasn't that violent when she was holding his hand on camera everywhere waiting for him to win a fat settlement though, or when she was in jail for drunk driving and he supported her. This whole case is just a mess and there are far too many questions and people with easy reasons to lie to say he did this.
Sep 04, 2019Must 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).
Feb 12, 2019Might be interesting but it was far too slow so I only made it half way through the first episode.
Dec 16, 2018I liked it a lot and it was fun to discuss with friends. However, I think this dude is guilty as sin.
Nov 05, 2018If 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.
