In the second season of that astonishing and attractive episode, we encounter an exciting reality and perhaps a bitter reality. Brendan and his family are waiting to hear important news about his case and forensic experts at Kathleen are reviewing the evidence and Kathleen is testing Stephen in new ways and visiting the crime scene. Forensic medicine returns to open files again.
In many ways, this is now a cautionary tale of just how much influence the media can have on a criminal case. If you are looking for insights or new evidence to add to what was presented the first time around, you will be disappointed.
As a documentary, though, Making a Murderer is undeniably gripping and well-constructed. As it did with its first season, it makes an extremely persuasive case for what would amount to an astonishing miscarriage of justice.
