The documentary was terribly biased. Take the tin foil hat off for a minute homie. The defense and the makers of the documentary omitted a lot. For examle.  

 

•All blood vials have a hole in the top- it's how the blood gets in

•The evidence seal on the blood vial's box was broken in a meeting with Avery's own lawyers from his wrongful conviction suit

•The FBI did release a report stating the detection levels of their EDTA test

•EDTA tests on dried blood stains were found to be reliable

•The bullet with Teresa's DNA on it was conclusively linked to Avery's exact gun (pages 208-209), not just that model

•The process of crushing a car takes hours, requires a lot of preparations and is very noisy. Avery couldn't have done it without his brothers, who managed the yard and knew what work was supposed to be done, noticing

•Lenk and Colborn were not named in Avery's lawsuit, and the county was not being sued for $36 mil. Vogel and Kocourek, who had both retired, were named in the suit and being sued for the majority of the money

•It was Kocourek's personal insurance that was refusing to cover his liability, not Manitowoc County's

•An underage female relative of Avery's accused him of sexually assaulting her, but agreed to delay charges when the Halbach case took precedence.

•Teresa's phone, camera, and PDA were found in a burn barrel on Avery's property

•Robert Fabian, a friend of Earl Avery's, testified he smelled burning plastic coming from a burn barrel on October 31 (where Teresa's electronics were found)

•Avery called Teresa twice on October 31, using *67 to hide his number. He called again at 4:35pm, this time not using *67. Her phone lost service (presumably when it was destroyed after she was dead) at 4:45pm. 

•Police records show Avery had a history of violence against women, including beating and strangling

•Avery states in the documentary Lori took his kids away from him. In fact, a judge issued a court order barring his kids from seeing him, saying "He has huge anger. He has real potential to harm people, and he's not dealt with any of that."

•The DOJ Arson Bureau specialist testified that tires and the van seat used as accelerants in a fire could burn a body within a few hours

•The DOJ Arson Bureau specialist testified that Teresa's bones were so entwined "inside the wire [of melted tires in Avery's burn pit], deeply inside of it in some cases [...] to the point where I actually had to, physically, pull apart the wire in order to get it there"

•Kayla's counselor testified Kayla specifically asked them if blood could seep up through concrete, before police knew anything about the garage as a possible crime scene

•The bullet was found on the first thorough search of the garage, and previously they had not even moved equipment out to search under it

•The key was found on the second search of the trailer; the previous entries the documentary claimed were "searches" were: a 10-minute sweep to look for any sign of Teresa alive, an entry to retrieve the guns seen on the initial sweep, an entry to get the serial number from Steven's computer for use in a warrant, and the crime lab luminol testing the residence.

This youtube show covers much of what you mention here. Around the last 15 minutes of it is stuff that was omitted from the documentary.

 

The documentary itself  focuses on what the prosecution describe as their most compelling evidence. It never claims to cover everything, the makers themselves are clear that it wouldn't be possible to cover all of it

Not sure if its been mentioned yet but I watched the first episode of American Crime Story last night. It's about OJ Simpson. I know pretty much nothing about the case so I am interested to see how it unfolds although I am aware that OJ got locked up and I think still is IRL. Few familiar faces such as Cuba Gooding Jr, John Travolta and that goofy guy from friends. Worth a watch.

I love the American Office.

At the risk of being shunned by my fellow Brits, it's better than the original.  Dwight Shrute is one of the best characters in the history of tv.

Just finished the first season of Mr. Robot. I'd recommend. Although it's pretty depressing at parts, the acting from Rami Malek is fantastic. About a hacker with social anxiety disorder.

 

Hannibal was one of my faves as well which wrapped up last year. Highly recommend that one, although it's not a show you put on in the background. They got away with showing some crazy **** on cable tv.

 

And for comedies I've been loving Brooklyn Nine Nine.

I finished the first season of Hand of God. A judge (Ron Perlman) suffers a breakdown and believes God is compelling him onto a path of vigilante justice. His son's wife was raped and out of guilt his son shoots himself and is in a coma. He believes that bringing justice will make him wake up. It's a little strange at times but has some good actors and I'm interested to see where the next season takes them.

 

I also started Bosch which is about a Hollywood homicide detective played by Titus Welliver that is searching for a serial killer while going through a civil suit for an unlawful death of an alleged serial killer. I finished 3 episodes last night and really like it so far.

the new guys don't do deadpan like the masters eg Lesley Nielson & Prime Charlie Sheen but it's not too bad! A few stolen lines but they're that blatant it feels more like a tribute

Anybody watched the first episode of Limitless?

 

 

Really enjoyed it. Didn't like the lead actor for the first couple minutes seemed to lack any charisma but once he popped his first pill that all changed.

 

10/10 will definitely keep watching

I watched the first three or four episodes and enjoyed the first couple. I think I went so far as to make a thread about it.

 

It became a bit samey though.

 

I get put off when a show tries to persuade me that I should be in awe of the characters.

I just watched episode 1.

 

Fantastic.

 

Great acting performances with a production that manages to portray the gravitas of the situation while still allowing plenty of room to accentuate the superficial world of LA Celebrity. 

 

10/10 I have a feeling it's only going to get better. Very gripping stuff.

Have never been into mini series shows. Watched Waynard Pines and thought I'd give more of them a chance and watched 11.23.63. last night and it has potential. Produced by JJ Abrams and adapted from a Stephen King novel I believe and stars James Franco. They've put a lot of money and time into the series. Looking forward to the next one.

I honestly thought Wayward Pines was trash.

 

I've never come across this 11 23 63 though but i'll definitely be giving it a go. Thanks for the heads up.

I had some ragrets watching it but it left too many cliff hangers for me not to finish it. What didn't you like about it?

 

I don't think 11.23.63. will disappoint.

I felt the characters had no substance and the show seemed to be continually changing it's mind about it's own plot.

Couldn't really be helped since it was based on a novel but i could definitely see how the show could trigger some people. dem child actors doe

Did anyone ever watch that miniseries called Kill Point it had Downieville Wahlberg and Jon Leguizamo in it.

No, though I just looked it up and it seems like the kinda thing I might enjoy. I'm downloading and adding to my "Things to do on the dark day that my internet connection drops" library.

I'm about done watching miniseries because now they extend them if they are popular. That just ruins the story. Under the dome and wayward pines were supposed to be one season.

Here's a couple of shows that I haven't seen and am curious about but not quite curious enough to download. I'm wondering if any of you have seen either of them if so would recommend to watch or avoid?

I finished The Frankenstein Chronicles ( there's only six episodes ) and overall I enjoyed it and would recommend.....though it did have some lulls ( not to be confused with lulz ).

 

I agree with the IMDB rating of 7.5

Watched a couple of episodes of season 12 of The Appretice US and was absolutely disgusted with how shallow , egotistical and materialistic some American celebrities are. Really rubbed me up the wrong way and I found myself ranting at the TV.

 

Trump is the worst of the lot. Sir Alan Sugar should host a series in the US and show him how it's done.

Did they pick up Wayward Pines for another season? Watched a few episodes of the mini series Secrets and Lies. A show that ripped off Gone Girl and somehow managed to stretch out an already overly long movie into 10 episides... and then picked it up for another season.

Honestly there is no way that under the dome could be one season. That's a long **** book, a really good one though
