Big crimes, small screen; true crime television series and TV documentaries that recreate and reexamine some of the mystifying and grisliest cases in history.
Encore, Mes Amis! Lupin Is Back.
Personal confession: I love Lupin. The Netflix thriller about a gentleman thief in modern-day France is ferocious, fine, frantic, frenetic — un délice.
2020 vs. "Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness"
The year 2020 has been a turbulent one, filled with uncertainty, constant change, sadness and sorrow. But, the one saving grace we’ve had that isn't a vaccine for Covid-19, is Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness. Yes, that Netflix docuseries that took the world by storm back in March. The series that saved our souls and heads from going mad whilst trapped indoors at the beginning of lockdown. The series so bizarre and mad itself (as its title rightly details), that our own lives and current situation felt like the better end of the spectrum!
Review of Mare of Easttown
Mare of Easttown concluded on HBO last night. One downer of a mini-series, brilliantly acted, but with resolutions so sombre it could have been Jude the Obscure near Philadelphia.
The Best World Dramas on All 4
World dramas are fast becoming the thing to watch, and this is largely thanks to one man; Walter Luzzolino. Walter Presents is a huge collection of dramas from around the world that range from comedy dramas to deeply upsetting and disturbing ones. But they all have one thing in common, they are all carefully screened by the man himself before they reach the viewer.

911 Lone Star is a spin-off series from the original series of 911 which is based on the personal and professional conditions of firefighters, emergency medical team, police department, and 911 dispatch team.

The Sociopathic Protagonist
If you are like me, you don’t enjoy anything more than cuddling up on the couch in fuzzy pajamas, oversized fleece blanket, a full glass of bottom shelf red wine, and a new murder mystery show. Crime shows have been airing on all platforms as long as I can remember, way before I was born twenty-something years ago. They’ve got it all. True crime shows such as Forensic Files and The Ripper docuseries are basically science-based history lessons on how sociopaths came to be and the nitty gritty details of the rape and murderous rampages they went on. Fictional police-oriented shows, like my favorites Law and Order: Special Victims Unit and CSI: Miami, delve into the lives of detectives and the events they may face trying to crack the case. And lastly we were given a series starring the murderous sociopath as the main character himself. Although I find all crime cinema completely fascinating, it is quite insightful to watch the plot unfold through the eyes of a protagonistic sociopath.
In Search of the Gentleman Thief
One of my favourite literary stock characters is that of the “gentleman thief.” The recent release of Lupin on Netflix shows that there are many others who are equally charmed by the concept. Who doesn’t love the idea of an outlaw, living by his own specific rules and meting out justice in a way that cuts the wealthy and powerful down to size.
One cop show after another
Cop shows. I grew up on cop shows. From Hill Street Blues to NYPD Blue, I loved them! I couldn’t get enough of them. Although Hill Street Blues was a really good show, I must say that there are some amazing cop shows that have happened in the last few years.
