What I loved: I just finished Making a Murderer and I am completely in shock with tears running down my face. I feel absolutely sick to my stomach. This documentary series has ripped apart my heart. No, I'm not exaggerating. If you've seen the show, you know exactly how I'm feeling. Steven Avery's case(s) is the most ludicrous miscarriage of justice I have ever seen or heard about.
Despite the morose feeling the doc has left me with, Netflix did a sensational job filming and producing the visibly remarkable series, of which spans over 10 years.
There are copious interviews, documents, media clips, court footage, interview footage, photographs, videos and more to help bolster the credibility of the series. I also believe Netflix tried to stay un-biased by presenting both sides of the story. There were pro-Avery interviews and anti-Avery ones as well.
I can't even begin to count how many times I yelled at my TV or swore at some of the key players while they were talking. The series is downright frustrating to watch.
After watching Making a Murderer, I truly believe our Justice System is broken and corrupt. And the media whom covered the case? Horrendous and despicable don't even begin to explain it. One news anchor dared to admit, "Murder is hot right now."
Between the Justice System, the police involved and the media, I believe they truly didn't let Steven Avery stand a chance.
Making a Murderer may have been a hard-watch, but it's important for people to hear about his story and see the flaws within our Justice System.
What I didn't: My only request, is I wish there were a few more interviews with non-Averys. I would have liked to know how the rest of the county felt about Avery and his case.
