With haunting, real-life 911 calls as its through-line, Murder Calls is true-crime storytelling taken to a new level. Each episode pivots on the contents and subtext of 911 calls, which investigators must decipher to uncover the truth.
I started watching this true crime show a few years back. It immediately caught my attention because all the crimes were perpetrated by someone online in some way or another.
"Web of Lies" does a great job when it comes to narration, presentation, re-actments, interviews, and tying everything together in the end. There are no loop holes and everything is explained in a thorough and coherent manner.
We also get to hear from family members, friends, and law enforcement. Once in a while, a victim is extremely lucky to survive his or her horrifying ordeal and is able to recount what happened. Unfortunately, these episodes do not occur often.
Sometimes the crimes are committed by complete strangers while other times, they are committed by someone the victim knows and trusts. The victims range in age from teens to older adults.
Both the internet and social media give accesses to a wide variety of information and connections. But with them, there can be unthinkable consequences. It's easy for anyone to hide behind a computer screen or cell phone screen and pretend to be someone he or she is not.
"Web of Lies" is a show definitely worth checking out. This show is very informative and teaches a valuable lesson. It's important for adults and kids to watch this show and be aware of what is going on out there. Do you really know who your kid is talking to?
