For those that appreciate this series, there's another on Netflix called "The Staircase" which is similar court trial/evidence driven wrongful imprisonment angle. Watched it a few months ago and felt it was also very good, not exactly the same but very similar.
I know exactly what you mean, I just finished Episode 1 and its exactly that.

The State's case has tons of holes in it and they're using the Dassey Interrogation as a Textbook case of forced confession.

But its all about them covering their own ass.

The Judge doesnt want to overrule law enforcement, the higher court Judges dont want to overrule another Judge, the Attorney General doesnt want to point fingers at the people in their own department, etc, etc and so forth.

I mean, that AG report was brutal.

"Mistakes were made, but they were well within normal and acceptable ranges over the course of their duties."



Holy hell....you'd think this guy killed the family of every member of law enforcement.

I loved the Staircase. Might to add a spoiler or edit ur post because it's not obvious if the person on trial is either convicted or set free.

MaM2 took the high road in not bringing up Kratz's sexual harrassment situation every since time he was on camera.

I am not a blue collar comedy fan but the Ron White special Netflix recently put up definitely has its moments.

Certain sense of humor? WWDINS is gold, and if someone doesn't find it at least chuckle worthy then I want nothing to do with them

They’re making a WWDITS tv show in Toronto right now. They’ve got a lot of funny people working on it so I’m looking forward to seeing it. It’ll be on FX..

After reading some articles on The Haunting of Hill House and how people were turning it off halfway through the first episode or how they couldn't sleep for weeks because of how scary it was, I decided to start it tonight and I guess with most things that get hyped up, it didn't live up to expectations. It's okay in terms of horror but it wasn't that scary for me. I love and hate getting scared but it just wasn't there for me. I'll continue watching though, as it was a good episode despite not living up to the hype machine.

Watched the first episode the other day. It was a good setup for the series but that's about it. Nothing frightening IMHO. We'll see how it proceeds.

I did the same. Watched the first episode and it was good, but a bit of a slow-burn. We'll see how the rest of it pans out.

Just finished MAM Part 2. It absolutely floors me that people who are so accomplished and smart, and who spend decades of their lives dedicated to understanding law, human behaviour, and special circumstance, are so inconceivably naive or purposely stubborn headed when it comes to Brendan Dassey's confession.

I wish we were presented with a broader example of the tape and fuller contrary arguments, but from what's been shown here and in other corners of the internet it just seems like a textbook case of a false confession.

It also seems like there should be more women judges or some diversity. The comments from the judge in the 7th Appeal Court were pretty bad.

It doesnt even have to be textbook!

Just watch it! As a Human. Watch that tape and watch his reaction when his mother comes in the door.

They totally screwed that kid!

But you're asking a Judge that deals with those Police on a daily basis to overturn something done by his Police force. Its not gonna happen. And thats a travesty.

A layman can watch Dassey's Confession and just think: "I dont believe a word of that."

Especially with the interrogators saying: "We already know, we know, you have to tell us the truth (that we want to hear)."

Those interrogators should be fired and if not then everything they touch should be scrutinized under a microscope. They really should be in a cell instead of Dassey.

I blew through it all this weekend. Overall I enjoyed it. The last episode gets a little cartoonish, and if I hear "mum" again I think I might lose it, but it was a pretty good show.

Agreed the last episode was a bit on the cheesy side.

They are saying Maíam but the accent makes it sound like Mum.

Almost finished Big Mouth season 2 and finding it a big improvement over season 1, which started with 3 great episodes then got a lot weaker, season 2 seems to be solid the whole way through (David Thewlis as the Shame Wizard was a huge addition, haven't seen him since he stole every scene in Fargo). I can easily see how the gross out humor can drive people away, but to me it always felt like they were trying to tackle really taboo subjects in a sincere manner while cracking a lot of jokes.

Castlevania Season 2 is fantastic and exceeded my expectations. Short season (8 episodes) but worth the wait.
