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. Written by ahmetkozan

wow, this is a breath of fresh air
16 September 2017 | by lpadr009See all my reviews

I watched the whole season this afternoon and I texted everyone I know telling them to watch it because i am so impressed. I love the originality, and the quirkiness. the acting and the characters are great, there are enough jokes to keep you smiling but without taking away too much of Dylan's sad story.

I found the shift in tone very unique and quite enjoyable. it made me realize how emotionally invested i was in the characters. It started off with this funny, goofy crime, and with a funny, goofy alleged criminal, making you think this is going to be the biggest satire of all crime docs, but eventually, it takes you on a roller coaster of feelings, ultimately bringing you to the harsh reality of our criminal justice system, and with society in general, really.

*i would like to say that i never write reviews because i realize I'm terrible at it, but i liked this show so much that i had to put in my 2 cents*
