TV shows have never been in a better position than they are. There’s dozens of channels in the air and every genre of series probably has hundreds of decent choices for you to watch. One of those genres that’s been on the rise in the last few years is the true crime series. Contrary to the CSI’s of this world, true crime series take events that actually happened and build their TV show around it. While they’re not always exactly true to the events that transpired, they at least get the big parts right. The fact that it’s all based on true events only makes the tension that more real and palpable.
If you want to dive deeper into this relatively new genre, here’s a few of the best true crime series you can find right now.
Making A Murderer
The show that probably started the fascination with true crime series, this Netflix hit told the story of Steven Avery and how he was allegedly framed for murder.
This show retells the story of a few difficult cases that puzzled the police force of the bayou. It’s still on-going and I suppose the bayou has enough crime to keep this series going for at least a few more seasons!
