Netflix and Kill | True Crime Shows I Recommend

| On
March 13, 2019

The Staircase


This Netflix show follows the author Michael Peterson as he was put on trial for the murder of his wife Kathleen. Even though Micheal insists she fell down the stairs and reported the accident himself, he becomes their number one suspect. 

We then follow him as he goes through his trial, and you see the impact it had on both him and his family. It was an emotional rollercoaster for me. I was so angry, disappointed, and I even cried. A lot. It was hard to watch sometimes, especially when his wife's sisters started to attack him for his sexuality and even using his fictional work against him. 

I don't want to ruin anything for anyone because I know some may not have watched it yet, but I highly recommend it if you enjoy this kind of thing. I for one enjoyed seeing the trial and the evidence being presented. It was upsetting to watch at times, but I think it's a normal reaction considering his circumstances.

Abducted in Plain Sight


This was absolutely unbelievable to watch. I put this on randomly and I had no idea what to expect. It's another show I would highly recommend because it gives you a real insight into the lengths some people will go to when they want something or someone. 

This show is about a family that is manipulated by a neighbour they think is their friend. What is the reason for this manipulation you might ask? Their daughter Jan. The neighbour was called Robert Berchtold and he took a liking to Jan when she was a young girl. His manipulation wasn't limited to Jan, as he would also sink his claws into her parents to get closer to her.

This has to be one of the craziest shows I have watched. It involves not one but two abductions, a mission to save an alien planet, threats, and affairs. It's crazy to watch and you won't believe what you are hearing. Trust me when I say this is shocking.

Murder Mountain


I watched this one with Ryan and we both enjoyed it. Ryan doesn't like watching anything about crime or murder, but he is interested in documentaries about the war on drugs. So, you could say this was a mix of the two and a good compromise. We really struggle to find things we'd both like to watch.

The show starts by telling you about Humboldt County, the marijuana industry, and the numerous missing person cases in the area. Throughout the series, they focus on the missing person case of Garret Rodriquez and how the investigation unraveled. You see interviews with his family, the 'outlaws' that live on Murder Mountain, Humboldt police, and the farmers that grow marijuana legally or illegally.

Again this show was frustrating because of the police and their negligence when it came to following leads for Garret's case. If you have seen it you know what I mean, but I'd recommend you check it out if you haven't yet!

Final Thoughts


I am thrilled that more and more true crime shows are becoming available on Netflix. It's great for someone like me that can't get enough of it! 

Have you watched any of these yourself? If so, what did you think? Or have you watched something recently that you thought was great? Let me know in the comments! 😊

  1. I’ve watched The Staircase, I’m still undecided on whether I think he’s guilty or not! I didn’t think he was then saw other information online and now I don’t know what to think. I’m definitely going to watch Abducted in Plain Sight soon as I’ve been meaning to, and I haven’t heard of Murder Mountain but it sounds interesting!

  12. Really enjoyed reading this! Have only watched The Staircase and thought it was brilliant. I think for me it was about the fact that there's no way that guilt was proved beyond reasonable doubt and that makes him not guilty. I've seen a lot of stuff online too and I think most of it is pretty irrelevant and just conjecture.

    1. Thank you so much! I enjoyed watching staircase so much, but I think he didn't do it myself. Like you said they couldn't prove he was guilty without reasonable doubt, but everyone will have their theories! Thanks for commenting! :)

  13. I subscribed Nutflix at first to watch Marie Kondo's cleaning show and my friend recommended me to watch Sherlock last week and I'm hooked into all the crime shows on Netflix.

    My only complain is that some of the shows are not available in Japan. Like why?

    1. Hi! I know what you mean. I think America gets a lot of things other countries don't. I've seen American Netflix have shows/movies that even the UK one doesn't, but a lot of countries are worse off than we are. I hope they add more for Japan! Thank you so much for commenting. :)
