Dahmer - Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story (Netflix) 9/21/22

Anyone planning on checking this out? Looks like a 10 part series starring Evan Peters as Jeffrey Dahmer.
Just started it and I know I知 bias considering I知 from Wisconsin, but his accent is really distracting. It sounds more like stereotypical Chicago than anything.

I will, even though I've seen many of the docs out there. I figured there already was a thread.

I don't care for people making money off this monster's life. Hard pass.

After watching the two trailers I feel like I've already seen it.

I wish they could concentrate on cases no one has heard of. What is there left to care about here?

While I think the case is very interesting, I agree with others - this has been done to death already (pardon the pun).

There have been many documentaries and a few movies already on it. The last thing I watched about him was "My Friend Dahmer" - which was good and it showed his teen years.
But Dahmer's been covered from every angle now - I don't see the point of yet another accounting of his life and the case.

10 episodes for a series so dark may be a bit too much....?

Plus, another Netflix documentary on Dahmer is coming out shortly after. Not sure what the point is.

I’m seven episodes in I think. It’s decent so far. Evan Peters is doing a good job aside from the accent, Richard Jenkins is good as his father. I recognized Molly Ringwald right away as his stepmother, but it took me a bit to realize Penelope Ann Miller.
The last episode I watched focused a lot on on one of his 1991 victims telling his story.

Are there any other stories that made big headlines in the 90's yet to be chewed on and regurgitated by the content machine? Has anyone tried the Jon Benet Ramsey case yet? Even without a resolution I'm sure they could without a sense of irony make the hungry media the whipping boy villain.

I really enjoyed this. Long lost episodes of Joe Pera Talks With You.

Re: Dahmer - Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story (Netflix) 9/21/22

I would like to see a series focus on DeAngelo (Golden State Killer) that would speculate on him committing his crimes while balancing a law enforcement job. It would have to be somewhat fictional due to the fact that what he did and how he went about doing it was never divulged. However, I'm also against it in some ways as there are still many living survivors of the trauma that he dealt.
