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 »

User Reviews

 
Chilling, gripping, fascinating
24 January 2019 | by kofilaSee all my reviews

The Bundy tapes are very well put together series with everything you need to know about the era, the crimes and the guy himself in it. No need to cram yourself with the facts beforehand. Nice dense vibe, good craftmanship, all in all very well done.
