"I just finished episode 6,7,8 The show as a whole was very interesting"
"Even though I was anticipating this series I really didn’t know what angle they would take since I already saw the documentary which broke everything down. But this series actually takes you places and let you see more of how the case all came together. It also brings back the disgust I felt watching it unfold. Elle Fanning is doing a good job portraying this tricky character. So I actually am looking foward to seeing the rest of the season. I don’t know if it’s actually better than the documentary but it’s worth a watch for true crime fans."
"Sad. Hard to believe this really happened. This poor girl was as messed up as the poor guy that killed himself. And instead of helping her with her own mental health issues they convicted her."
"This was heartbreaking but accurate & I applaud the producers for not shying away from dealing with what is arguably the most taboo subject on the planet…suicide. As a society we really should try to reduce the stigma associated with mental health & suicidal ideation. As for the story itself, I don’t know that I agree with the conviction since Conrad was over 18 so therefore an adult but I guess that was how the judge saw fit to punish Michelle. She might’ve gotten a different verdict if she had"
