It's another TV week at Wandering Through The Shelves and this theme is one of my favorites - docu-series. This is my favorite way to consume true crime in media. I know plenty prefer podcasts but I like this format. Here are three docu-series that I highly recommend
1) The Staircase
I believe this one is available on Netflix now, but when I watched it years back, someone had uploaded it to Daily Motion. It follows Michael Peterson who is accused of killing his wife. This case is so bizarre, on the face of it, you think he has to be guilty but after watching this doc go look up the "owl theory." It's either the greatest reach of all time or the answer to everything depending on where you land.
2) The Keepers
Making a Murderer is probably the most popular true crime series Netflix has to offer but I always suggest giving this one a watch. The frustrating thing about it is that I feel like this case will never get solved and that's awful because Sister Cathy deserves more than that.
3) I Love You, Now Die
This is a fairly new one from HBO but I chose it because it actually changed my mind on the case. It follows one you've probably read about, a girl who was tried for manslaughter for egging her boyfriend on via text message during his suicide. I'll admit, based off the articles I read I judged this girl but the case is so much more nuanced than that.
