Trail went cold

Steven Avery is again wrongly accused and convicted. Very interesting that he was accused right before he was to be awarded an amount of money, he suddenly was accused again.

Fate

As with most things in life, the best surprises are those that we stumble over on the proverbial road in life. As with this show I was not looking for anything in particular then I pressed on it. Well, I was hooked. I absolutely love Robin’s narration tone with the occasional curse word in it. It tickles me. I am a true crime buff and once in a while you find a show like this one. One that sticks out from the rest of the crowd.
There’s nothing that I can pinpoint, it’s the entirety of the presentation. Well, I can’t say enough about it without sounding redundant. All I can say is that you will not regret becoming a fan of this show. Unfortunately I am not in a good financial position to contribute monetarily, in better circumstances I would of course. The show is created with a large modicum of love for the art of bringing these horrid stories to light but I am sure they are not easy to produce. I listen to Robin at work or on my way to/from work and he makes these otherwise tedious interludes in life rather tolerable. Thank you Robin and crew for creating such a interesting and thought-provoking show. I will spread the word, which I am sure is a good thing for your show and hopefully others will venture into that dark alley with only your voice as a guide…
