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
I rarely ever write reviews here. In the last decade of membership here I've written a mere three reviews including this one. This show at a first glance is nothing but a crude satirical mockumentary made for laughs. But there's a message that everyone under 30 really should hear. The end of season 2 was
so encouraging and enlightening that I nearly cried. I won't say anything about anything for spoilers sake, but just let me tell you that I am genuinely shocked and amazed that a show like this left it's viewers with such an important message. Give this show a watch, particularly season 2. It's been a while since I've seen season one, and I imagine they did have a moral/message, but season 2 hit me like a brick. My mouth was gaping open catching flies for nearly the entire 40 minute final episode of season 2. I watched the entire season in a night and one day, and I have gotta say props to the makers. They say what I've never heard said before on media, and I am so thankful they addressed what they did. Give this show a watch, it just might help remind you that you're not alone in your sorrows. 10/10 and respect.
