“Making a Murderer really ticked me off, given the (implied) procedural improprieties and miscarriage that occurred. It took me over a year to get over how much I commiserated with Steven Avery, and it took about that long to banish the thoughts of abandoning lucrative corporate practice to ‘help the people’. Confession Tapes just turned that tap back on really, with that REALLY annoying first episode that had me raging.” [Legal Cheek comments]
