Guilty Pleasure {Making a Murderer}

All I am going to say is "Oh my God!" Well? Not really? Here I go...

I finished the 10th and final installment of the Netflix documentary, Making a Murderer.




Have you seen this show yet? If you haven't, you must.

True-crime stories have become a hot commodity, and Netflix is getting into the game with a new 10-part documentary series called Making a Murderer. Directed by Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos, the show tracks the life of Steven Avery, who served 18 years for a crime DNA evidence later indicated he had not committed. Later, while fighting a legal battle over his previous incarceration, Avery became a suspect in a new heinous murder case.

You know I love Law & Order and all of its spin-offs, and I really like this true-to-life documentary. I was intrigued from the first episode. You will be hooked too.

I have always believed that small town law enforcement folks can do whatever they want (even illegal) to make a case- plant evidence, muddy testimony, and more. This show to me proves this. Don't get me wrong, I respect the cops, but like in everything, there are BAD "eggs".

I do not want to give too much away, but I can only hope Mr. Avery and Mr. Dassey get a second chance. My heart thinks they were "framed".


Brendan Dassey

It is hard to believe that our justice system is so "blind" and inept. It really makes me wonder.

What are your thoughts?


Making a Murderer, y'all!

  1. I watched this show and it was fascinating! I too feel like you do, that justice was not served. It is scary to think that this kind of 'bad' police work can happen and take away your freedom, but I do believe it happens more then we realize. Great show and I too highly recommend it!!

  2. I keep hearing a lot of talk on this series, but haven't watched it yet. Not sure I want to - it may be too depressing. And scary in its own way.

  5. I enjoyed the first two episodes, then I was told he was guilty of the second murder. That made it too depressing to go on. I have saved all
    the shows in case I get up the courage to watch more!!

  6. We finished it last night. I had nightmares about it...thinking I had been arrested and had to convince them I was innocent!

  7. Hi Ron - just wondering why you didn't allow my comment from yesterday? I hope it wasn't because I disagree with your take on it?

    1. What my comment said was - I live not far from where this all took place, so definitely see it from a different perspective when it comes to the murder of Theresa. Netflix left a whole lot of info out and it is very one sided, albeit entertaining! Milwaukee radio station WTMJ am 620 is running a two hour special examining all of the info - including facts that were left out. No doubt this is a sad story - no matter which way you look at it. Thanks for getting back to me!!

  8. Ron...I was considering this series. I don't know what draws us to crime shows but it's fascinating.
    Thanks for the suggestion.

  10. I agree with Jane they left alot out. They were film makers and did what was good for their story. Very one sided There were a few articles this weekend in several papers. I truly believe they are where they should be. There are several important facts the film left out. Her DNA her camerea her cell phone. What I feel really sad for is her family to go through this over again. May Theresa rest in peace Kris
