Storyline

"The Killing Season" from Executive Producer Alex Gibney follows documentarians, Joshua Zeman (Cropsey) and Rachel Mills as they investigate one of the most bizarre unsolved serial killer cases of our time -- ten dead sex workers discovered on Gilgo Beach, Long Island. Authorities believe these killings are the work of the Long Island Serial Killer, who after five years remains at large. Forging relationships with cyber-sleuths, journalists and victim's families, Zeman and Mills uncover connections that suggest Long Island is just the beginning.

Nothing like Making A Murderer
29 November 2016 | by (Paris, FR) – See all my reviews

That review is from watching the first 6 episodes out of 8.

This attracted me because of the reported similarities to the Making A Murderer series. Sadly, however interesting the topi at hand is, the approach and tone is pure sensationalism, the editing is one of reality TV character, and the humanity and emotional aspects are vastly lacking. In itself it could be OK, but as the "investgation" is heavily leaning on the grimmest possible path, you start to feel that the producers wanted to mix the last scene from "Seven" with TV reality storytelling. Oh, and it doesn't help that throughout, we learn that the investigation led by the journalists has actually mostly matched the ones led by police departments. Two episodes to go, but I can already safely say that this isn't something I'd recommend my family to watch, unlike "Making A Murderer". In the end, the results of the investigation might be interesting, but this was tastelessly done to say the least. I just wish I could follow this without feeling like I'm watching porn...
