I took a small break from this crazy show. Turns out, it is now the perfect way to distract myself from from what’s going on in the world. If you haven’t read my previous posts, click the number for the episode below. After this, there will be spoilers.Continue reading
As you can probably tell from the title, I’ll be going over the crazy show that embraced us throughout the quarantine. Now, I’ve tried my best to keep from any information regarding this show other than the knowledge that this show is absolutely crazy. For that reason, I decided that if I truly want to talk about this show appropriately, I would need to go episode by episode in discussing the craziness that happens. I am writing this as of watching the first episode, so spoilers through that episode.
Next in my deep dive into documentary series is The Confession Tapes. I absolutely love procedural cop dramas and the confessions at the end of the episode are what you live for. This documentary takes that step in the entire process and takes a closer look at it. What if the confession isn’t everything? What if the confession wasn’t as true as television has led us to believe? This is that show. It follows several investigations where the central piece of evidence is the confession given. Both sides of the justice system give their take on each case. With some of the episodes, I’m completely stumped as to which side I’m on, and I completely believe that that is the entire point of this documentary: to shine a light on the fog that is sometimes our justice system. If you love a documentary that has lots of twists and turns, I would suggest checking this out on Netflix.
Over the summer, I became a little obsessed with documentaries and docuseries, or documentary series. While I was inserting things into whatever word document, I would have a brand new episode up. Now I won’t talk about every single one, but the first one I will talk about is Dirty Money. In essence, it talks about different companies and scandals associated with them. I personally found it fascinating. I will admit, the last episode is a bit political, talking about Donald Trump, but it was mostly talking about his past up to running for office; it was informative with out too much of a liberal sway. It was there, but not really overwhelming. Overall, it was a decent docuseries. It also showed multiple points of view, which was also interesting. I may have to give it another watch, or wait until another season comes out on Netflix (if it does within a reasonable amount of time).
