“Once I pulled a job, I was so stupid. I picked a guy’s pocket on an airplane and made a run for it.”
So recently I’ve been watching every Netflix crime show or documentary I can find! Here’s a list of my top 3 favorites but I could include so many more:
- Team Foxcatcher – really good documentary about a billionaire who killed an Olympic gold medalist in wresting. It’s an interesting and sad story about a man who just wanted friends but had no social skills and did a horrible thing.
- Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile – I never knew Zac Efron had this much acting skills but he played Ted Bundy great! Really crazy story about something that happened just before my time but I always heard references to ‘Ted Bundy’ and now I know why he became such a household name. Horrible guy and horrible crimes but an interesting story about how the country was captivated by the story.
- The People vs. O.J. Simpson – What a great one! Maybe this should be my first favorite but this is about THE trial of the century. It has all the makings of a good story: fame, fortune, a beloved athlete that fell from grace, and the behind closed doors scandals and affairs. It was a great TV series that had wonderful actors that really gave a good insight into how the attorneys handled the ins and outs and ups and downs of a trial that lasted over a year.
What have been y’all’s favorite shows on Netflix (crime related or not)? Did y’all get really hooked on something and you just haven’t been able to put it down?
