Making A Murderer

I just finished binging Netflix's new True Crime docu-series, "Making A Murderer."  It was compelling in many ways, and I think overall, it's a triumph.  That said, I think its main failing is that after 10 hours, the viewer still does not have a clear picture of the victim in the murder case, Teresa Halbach.  I assume this was because her family did not want to cooperate with the couple who was making the documentary, perhaps because of their apparent close connection and access to the Avery family. 

Aside from that, and the persisting feeling that the story is being told exclusively from the Avery's point of view, the series provides a fascinating look at the justice system and its failings, especially when it comes to Avery's teenaged nephew's case.  For that alone, the series is well worth the investment of time.
