Murdaugh Murders: A Southern Scandal Review

I can now add this show to my small list of docuseries that I’ve watched. But since true crime isn’t one of my favorite genres I’m just going to keep it short and jump straight on in. This story was insane and is almost unbelievable that something like this actually happened in the real world. While the story was exceptionally compelling and I got heavily invested in it I, unfortunately, think they made one big mistake. That mistake is that they didn’t wait to make this doc till after the trial was completed. I didn’t realize why I had a problem with this until after I finished the show. During the show, I was all in on all of the Murdaughs being murderers, but it wasn’t till later that I realized the show was sharing just as many rumors/theories as they were facts. This, in turn, gave the show bit of a “guilty until proven innocent” vibe even though we knew the outcome of the trial at the time of watching. If they had waited to finish the show till after the trial finished then it would have seemed more complete and less speculative to me. Because even though I knew he was guilty outside of the show it would have added a nice bit of finality to it.

But besides that, I do think it was a very well-put-together docuseries that did a good job at telling the story, so I would give it a 6 out of 10.


I love movies!!!!!!!!!!
