    I didn't get this out of either of these two docs.

    The focus is of course on the suspect or convicted killer(s), but any good doc will give you a sympathetic view of the victims.

    The Confession Tapes is also a good doc series on Netlfix. But probably not what you're looking for, because it goes into different murder convictions around the country where the suspect was coerced into a confession. But still a good doc series.

  • Anybody get through GLOW season 2 yet? It's really damn good. I'm impressed. I breezed through that, pausing only to wipe the occasional tear, in just a couple of days, alternating nights with Kiss Me First, which also turned out to be really good. Meanwhile, I'm trudging through Luke Cage season 2 like thick, deep mud. I dunno why, but it just isn't grabbing me like season 1 did. I've heard mostly good things about it, and I don't dislike, but it just isn't hooking me yet.

    Yeah I watched all of season 2 of GLOW, it’s such a great show. It doesn’t get the recognition, but it’s up there with some of Netflix’s best series. I actually might prefer it to Orange Is The New Black (same writers I think). You can probably make arguments for season 2 being the best season of any Netflix season.

  • Started watching The Sinner...So far it's quite good. Jessica Biel shines in this series. Worth the watch.

  • They are not on Netflix, but Barry on HBO is a must watch. It's a bit of a dark comedy. If you like Bill Hader it won't disappoint. Also, Sharp Objects on HBO is only two episodes in, but is great. It is based on the book under the same name, also same author who wrote Gone Girl. You can binge Barry as they already finished season one.

  • Finally watched and finished season 1 of Mindhunter. Great, now I am hooked and want to binge S2 which it looks like I will have to wait another few months.

    Netflix, look what you've done to me.

    Hell yeah, fantastic show............and if you like Narcos check out American Made the Tom Cruise movie.

    Same timeline, same plot, even some of the same people. But with a funner lighter spin. I liked it more than I thought I would.

    Such a great show. Love the entire premise and subject matter.

    Cameron Britton's performance of Ed Kemper was outstanding and seriously chilling.

    Oh yeah Britton is outstanding as that character. When I first heard about Mindhunter I assumed it was a docu-series. It's a great premise with a great cast.

  • Almost finished with S1 of Seven Seconds. It's excellent. Regina King is among many who shine.

    Watched the first episode last night. I like that it doesn't sensationalize or glorify the killers like so many docu-drama's do........very fair honest depiction of the killer.
