Happy Valentines week and more importantly happy Tuesday! This is a weird week. Weird in the since that I couldn’t decide on a movie so, I picked a TV show.  It’s also a DVD, I know gross. This week’s pick is Netflix’s American Vandal—a hilarious mockumentary.

True-crime series are gaining popularity on TV so, of course, there was bound to be a satire of the genre. “American Vandal” takes a look at the aftermath of various high school pranks. Aspiring student documentarian Peter Maldonado takes it upon himself, with help from friend Sam Ecklund, to investigate the cases and find out exactly who is responsible for the crimes. After looking into vandalism at a public high school, Peter and Sam head to a Catholic school after the cafeteria’s lemonade is contaminated with laxatives. In the style of the genre it lampoons, the series leaves viewers wondering who the real perpetrator is until the very end. – Netflix
