Goofs

A finger presses the "record" button on a 1970s/1980s-era cassette recorder in the title sequence -- but not the "play" button. Pressing the record button alone, however, would not start the tape, as both the record and play buttons must be selected in tandem for the machine to start recording. This is repeated often in the first episode, as well. See more »

Fantastic insight. Must watch.
25 January 2019 | by danielmansonSee all my reviews

Chances are, just like me, you are watching this because you love crime docs and somewhat interested in serial killers. This is by far one of the best documentaries out there based on this topic.

It's all in chronological order, it has so many various tape recordings and film footage of Ted himself, it interviews so many different people associated with him. It just overall covers absolutely all basis you would want.

Obviously being interested in serial killers I knew a little on Ted Bundy, but this 4 part documentary added so much more information and went into real depth into the parts that I did know about him. If you are into this kind of thing, just like me, or you want a new documentary or Netflix series to watch I highly recommend this. 4 episodes as well so isn't overly dragged out like a lot of recent crime series have been.

Must watch and highly recommend.
