Netflix recommendations during quarantine

A place to chat about anything thats not football related. Most of the threads in here are completely pointless which is why people keep coming back and back. As the forum title suggests, feel free to make any post you want on any subject you wish. It also has Adult jokes (so be warned) which is the other reason people keep coming back.

Good sum up Tang. I differ though. Never proven beyond reasonable doubt and should’ve been acquitted.

I too was thinking, “did this guy kill his wife? Did she find out about him having his knob sucked and as* bashed by guys and threaten to go public?” Etc etc......, but when David Rudolf presented the court with 100% of recorded beatings having skull fractures and brain injuries, (and this case didn’t have any) .... I was convinced he was not guilty.

When the jury retired it was 8-6 in favour of guilty. I’d have been one of those 6 and wouldn’t have changed my mind on that.
FTR, I think a stair fall could indeed cause those injuries if she’d passed out nearer the top and fell from halfway or nearer the top. No doubt whatsoever. My opinion of course.

The judge was also very weak. What is it with these top American judges, .... Lance Ito and this Hudson guy...... pussies.

But riveting and the book, beyond the staircase is unputdownable....... if there is such a word.

Maybe I didn’t express it that well in the previous post .. I agree... he should have been acquitted because there was never enough solid evidence to convict beyond reasonable doubt. Can’t help feel the jury was coerced somehow. I thought David Rudolph did a great job in undermining the prosecution evidence and couldn’t believe the jury’s verdict.

Still a bit of a mystery and I’m not totally convinced about Mike’s innocence - but, have to say, I was on his side the more the trial went on. Never should have been convicted. And the judge was useless.

I did read on Wikipedia about another theory - death by owl! Kathleen had feathers in her hand and twigs in her hair - theres a theory she was attacked upstairs by an owl, believe it or not, which caused the lacerations and caused her to stumble down the stairs..... or it could have been Carole Baskin.

Very good series.

Like a child waiting for Christmas, couldn't wait until tonight......... Just read the owl theories. Hmmmm. I don't know. Maybe? Seems very far-fetched but it would explain the lacerations without broken skull and brain damage. Million miles from an expert so better leave it at that.

Would've liked it if the french maker had put it in the series. He certainly knew about it. He thought it'd veer people away from how the American judicial system works. There is small film apparently been added, (or is being added) by Netflix containing the owl. Will defo tune in.

Yep......, just watched the 3:46 netflix "owl" addition.

The owl did it. Guaranteed.

If you ever want someone convicted, don't have me on the jury. I'm open to all suggestions. :lol:

I think they didn’t pursue the owl theory because they couldn’t prove an owl could hit someone with a blow poke.

They'd be getting confused with 1970's Sheffield Wednesday fans.

Making a Murderer.

Story of Steven Avery & Brendan Dassey. No doubt you’ll probably be more familiar with this, 9.

Shocking insight into police / judicial corruption.

Under The Skin, starring Scarlett Johansson. A critically acclaimed film...very abstract. Funny I only really remember two things. :lol:

9, it is the Veronica movie directed by Paco Plaza

Just started watching Peaky Blinders...love it. I really dig mafia type shows, and the fashions of the late teens and 20s are really cool!

Marko, Making a Murderer is infuriating, but I always hesitate when only one side is presented. Still, the 16 year old interrogation is very dubious.

What had me audibly shouting at the tv was the judge passing sentence in the 2005 trial.
Avery was exonerated by DNA evidence for the first case that cost him 18 years yet that corrupt b*stard decided to reference it when passing sentence for the other one.
Never witnessed such an overwhelming “frame up” case.
DA, Ken Klatz will burn in hell.
