I watched the first two episodes of Last Man on Earth. Seems like it'll be a worthwhile watch. Loves me some Kristen Schaal.
I used to be with it, but then they changed what 'it' was. Now, what I'm with isn't 'it,' and what's 'it' seems weird and scary.

I saw that the other night, too. I thought it was pretty funny. I know someone posted on here about her but I can't remember where.

I would have watched the shit out of this show.

Mrs. Morty and I spent the weekend binge watching "The making of a Murderer" on Netflix. This had me glued to my chair. A true story, followed over a period of 10 years about a Wisconsin man who was wrongly imprisoned in 1985 for a sexual assault/rape he didn't commit. DNA evidence exonerated him after 18 years in the jug, and he was freed. What happened after that defies description. We all like to think that if we were hauled into court in this land of ours we would have a fair shake of it.

betterhalf and I watched this documentary over the holiday break--pretty frightening stuff. How the hell can the police interrogate the teenager without having a parent present? The public defender should be sitting in jail. What a mess. I would love to see an impartial outside agency step in and really investigate the murder.

I was forwarded a link to an article about the case, and how the film makers left out things to slant the documentary. The article said there were 14 pieces of evidence that the prosecution that presented that were left out of the documentary. One was somewhat disturbing, a report that Steven Avery once doused a cat with gas and threw it in a bonfire when he was a late teenager. Other evidence presented was that Steven once answered the door when the victim came to photograph a previous car wrapped in a towel, and that he specifically requested that she be sent to photograph the red minivan the day she was last seen. None of these outweigh the avalanche of evidence the brilliant defense attorneys presented in my mind. A few things stood out in my mind.
1) why would someone who operates a junkyard keep a virtually intact, albeit somewhat soiled victims car on the property, vainly covered in branches and old hoods when they could have cut the car into tiny pieces and made it disappear completely? Every junkyard I know of has several Oxygen Acetylene torch sets.
2) isn't it fishy that the volunteer searchers wandered onto the property in the least likely of entry points and went almost straight to one vehicle in over 1,000 on a 40 acre plot?
3) the same Oxy/acet torch set could have completely cremated any remaining bone fragments with a few hours work.
4) why would someone who stood a good chance at winning a huge lawsuit against the city commit a crime like this?
5) Did I hear/see correctly that the good cop/bad cop detectives interrogating the nephew fed him the entire tie up/rape/stab/cut throat scenario? and if so, with no corpse to autopsy, where did that come from?
6) The business of interrogating the minor nephew Dassey without a parent present, or proper legal council (the Howdy Doody public defender assigned to him did absolutely nothing for him, and acted like he was the prosecution's bitch) is EXTREMELY suspicious. The poor kid has problems, he is borderline special needs, and was extremely malleable.

My mom came from a small town in da UP, and she always lectured me on small town mentality, and how you are judged by your ancestors, and you place in society. I imagine the green tooth bastards that tow your car, and buy your hooptie when it finally throws a rod were in a pigeon hole before Steven was born.



I have this, and many other questions/observations

I watched the documentary over the break, too. I remember reading about the story several years ago from the Innocence Project and thinking to myself, "What kind of idiot gets out after an 18 year bid for a crime he didn't do, only to commit a more heinous crime?". One thing is certain, every one of the family members is an absolute idiot.

They aren't sharp. They run a junk yard. I am trying to reconcile whether their general IQ level would equate to being that sloppy about committing a heinous murder, and being so careless with the vehicle and the skeletal remains, and I just don't think anyone is that stupid, or that they are so careless with the latter, but really, really good at clean-up detail.

SR and I only made it through 4 episodes. Not sure what could have kept our interest for 6 more.

The one thing that made me think he was not guilty, even though I saw none of the court episodes, was the fact that there was no physical evidence of the gruesome murder in the room.
