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.

Here's why you've gotta watch this show
17 September 2018 | by fierce221See all my reviews

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.
