Over the holidays I believe that I got more texts that said “have you watched Making A Murderer yet?!” than “Merry Christmas” or “Happy New Year.” With that level of hype, how could I not watch it?
For those who are not yet aware of this new Netflix series, here is a brief synopsis:
This 10 episode non-fiction series follows the case of Steven Avery, a man exonerated from his rape conviction after 18 years in prison. He is now faced with new charges but this time for first degree murder. Steven claims that he is innocent of these charges, just like the rape. The series contains footage spanning 10 years. At the end of it all, it is up to you to make your own opinion – Is Steven Avery innocent or guilty this time around?
I don’t want to provide any spoilers in case you haven’t seen it yet, but I am not sure that I have decided what my opinion is.
Do me a favour and give it a watch. Let me know in the comments what you think – innocent or guilty?
