American Vandal (Netflix) out today
Watched the first two episodes and it was pretty damn funny. There are 8 total, first two were 35 minutes each.

A lot of things you see take you back to the good ole immature high school days (throwing a shocker in school pictures, sharpening your pencil for an extended amount of time just to make noise, kids bragging about how many beers they drank)

IGN gave it a 9.1 of 10 and it's currently sitting at 90% on RT.

While it's silly, they actually do a good job of making it seem like a real crime with all the timelines and graphics they show. Gonna watch some more later, but after the first two episodes it's pretty great.

Can't wait to watch. I think if its a legitimately interesting "case" then it's going to be fantastic.

Yea dick jokes are great...but if I am engaged in figuring out what really happened then that's what will put it over the top.

Again I only watched the first two episodes, but I'm hooked and want to watch more to find out what happened.

They do a good job of setting up "villains" and creating a sense of doubt and mystery, similar to what Making a Murderer did. While at the same time providing laughs. Hopefully it keeps that up throughout.

Watched the first episode at lunch and loved it. I think the Spanish teacher is behind it, she seems like a bitch!
Thought they casted it well. Gonna finish it this weekend.

Just finished episode five... It's kind of crazy how well they made the mystery behind all of it. The show is surprisingly more of cracking a complex case than silly comedy.

Episode #5 will pull you in (feels weird saying something like that about a penis drawing documentary, but it's true) .... you've been warned.

Just finished it. Very surprised by how good it was. For something about spray painted penises, it has very deep themes, laugh out loud funny @ times, & had me wanting to start the next episode immediately.

Not gonna spoil anything so I'll stop @ that

Just finished it also, exactly what I thought. I was hooked wanting to know what happened. I liked how the comedy was subtle throughout. Like (without spoiling too much) them not really mentioning Mr. Kraz for a while then showing him after the doc went viral

Remember watching Tatro's Youtube channel back in college.

Enjoyed the hell out of this.

I didn't really like the end though.

Great show! Hilarious and deep like someone else said.

Spoilers






















































Okay so he obviously didn't do the big prank. But when he saw how that Spanish teacher still thought he was an a-hole and loser, and that she didnt think he'd ever amount to anything, it really hurt his feelings. Then when he saw the doc and the way everyone called him a loser and said he did it, it really hurt him. He had actually grown a lot and was maturing while he was kicked out. But when he came back, no one knew how much more mature he was and so because they treated him like a vandal, he went and spray-painted a dick on the Spanish teacher's driveway.

By treating him like a vandal, they created one in him. It's a commentary on how rush to judgments are dangerous because we can turn people into monsters when we assume they are. He wasn't a saint, but he wasn't the culprit, until they turned him into one.

More than likely, Kraz did it, like the other poster said. The fact that they didn't tell who did it though after all that was pretty lame. If you watch the scene when the football coach is named teacher of the year, Kraz is sitting and gets up in anger and walks off behind the curtains, he obviously felt he should have been TOY. Kraz also didn't like te Spanish teacher because she pretended to be the studensts hero by getting off-campus lunch back, when she took it away to begin with. He also clearly hated the football coach and basically said so.

No problem! I had to think about it for a few hours after it ended.

The lead kid is such an ignorant douche I just couldn't watch it. Don't think I laughed once.

I find it to parallel Serial a lot more than Making a Murderer. The narration is identical to Serial, and the scene where they time themselves driving from the house to the school to spray paint to see if it is even plausible to do it in 30 minutes was straight from Serial I'm 3 episodes in. Probably gonna watch another two tonight

MIng Zing and Mr. Kraz are fricking legends.

Also, without spoiling, I thought it was pretty clear the person they actively suspected in the last episode did it
