Storyline

Clearly a riff on the streaming giant's acclaimed true crime series Making A Murderer and The Keepers, American Vandal is a half-hour true crime satire that explores the aftermath of a costly high school prank that left twenty-seven faculty cars vandalized with phallic images. Over the course of the eight-episode season, an aspiring sophomore documentarian Peter Maldanaldo investigates the controversial and potentially unjust expulsion of Dylan Maxwell, the troubled senior accused of the phallic vandalization.

Lots of Satire and actually pretty good acting
23 September 2017 | by mnsmb7See all my reviews

I watched this show out of a recommendation from a friend and ended up finishing the first season in a few days. While it's not the most riveting show in the world and wont change your life it will thoroughly entertain you if you can handle some crude humor and enjoy the sarcasm and satire.

I thought the acting was superb and really enjoyed how this show was filmed and how even the most mundane character had a storyline instead of focusing on the main characters. I originally thought this would just be something I threw on so i could have background noise but i really did enjoy this.

I would recommend this for anyone who wants something easy to watch, enjoys a "who done it" kind of show, and wants to laugh. I am really curious to see if there will be a second season because how they took a prank where 27 cars were vandalized with phallic symbols and got me to watch the whole season is amazing.
