Making A Murderer season 2: everything we know so far

Making A Murderer is one of the most talked about TV shows of the past few years, and for good reason. Seriously, if you still haven’t seen it, what the hell are you waiting for?!?! We know for sure that it’s coming back for a second season on Netflix, but annoyingly, we’re not totally sure when – we just know it will be in 2018 at some point.

So what else do we know about the second series of Making A Murderer? Let’s take a look…

First things first: what’s Making A Murderer about?

Filmed over a 10-year period, Steven Avery, a DNA exoneree who, while in the midst of exposing corruption in local law enforcement, finds himself the prime suspect in photographer Teresa Halbach’s murder, despite pleading his innocence. His nephew Brendan Dassey, who has learning difficulties, then becomes involved when he appears to be coerced into

The Disappearance of Maura Murray: Everything You Need to Know …

In the months following Maura’s disappearance, Fred wrote to the New Hampshire governor’s office, pleading for his assistance in urging the State Police to accept help from the FBI. He said he never heard back and in the meantime had filed a Freedom of Information Act so that he could see what authorities were doing about his daughter’s case. He told the Daily Collegian in January 2005 that he would even hang out in local bars, hoping to overhear any snippet of info in case anyone was talking about Maura.

He enlisted a team of private investigators and they too had a falling out over disagreements about the way information was being shared, or not shared, but the PIs continued to work the case on their own.

Fred alleged that the police refused to properly investigate the possibility that Maura had been abducted. “There’s a bad guy on their turf in their backyard,”

Everything That’s Leaving Netflix in October | Mental Floss

The Big Bang Theory, which has held the title of television’s most popular comedy for several years now, and will return for its 11th season on Monday, September 25th. In the meantime, geek out with these facts about the long-running cerebral comedy on the 10th anniversary of its premiere.

1. THE SHOW WASN’T PITCHED IN A TRADITIONAL WAY.

Instead of writing up a premise—which includes outlines of the characters and the long-term vision for the show—and pitching it to CBS, co-creators Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady revealed at PaleyFest in 2009 that for their pitch, they wrote a complete script, hired actors, and, as Lorre explained, “put on a show” for CBS president Les Moonves. Lorre found the experience to be “crazy,” but it obviously worked.

2. IT TOOK TWO PILOTS FOR THE SHOW TO GET PICKED UP TO SERIES.

The show filmed two different pilots, because CBS didn’t like the first

Everything That’s Leaving Netflix in October

Join me. Perhaps you will learn some things you didn’t know about the wonderfully spooky Unsolved Mysteries, a show that aired is finale 15 years ago, but still creeps people out to this day.

1. IT STARTED AS A SERIES OF SPECIALS.

An Unsolved Mysteries reenactment

The three specials, called Missing… Have You Seen This Person?, were hosted by David Birney and his wife Meredith Baxter and aired on NBC in April 1986. The specials were so successful that producers Terry Dunn Meurer and John Cosgrove decided to broaden the scope of the show to include all kinds of mysteries.

2. IT WASN’T ALWAYS HOSTED BY ROBERT STACK.

When what would become the pilot episode of Unsolved Mysteries (but was then just a special) debuted on January 20, 1987, it was hosted by Raymond Burr. Karl Malden helmed the

Everything you need to know about Netflix’s ‘American Vandal’ and what could happen in Season 2

On paper, Netflix’s American Vandal sounds like a Funny or Die skit that would be amusing for about seven minutes before the joke wore out its welcome. Full disclosure: I almost dismissed it for precisely that reason, before sitting down to watch the season when Netflix made it available for review.

The show is described by the streaming service as “a half-hour true-crime satire that explores the aftermath of a costly high school prank that left twenty-seven faculty cars vandalized with phallic images.” And, like any good mystery, the show hinges on our interest in answering one simple question: “Who drew the dicks?”

The premise might seem juvenile — and rest assured, the show sure doesn’t skimp on the dick jokes — but it doesn’t take long for American Vandal to hook you, mostly by committing to its premise just as sincerely as the true-crime documentaries it’s parodying, despite

No Holds Barred: Jim Carrey Believes "Everything Should Be Made Fun Of" In Comedy

No matter what side of the political debate you may find yourself on, it’s hard to deny that we live in very sensitive times. Almost every joke one could make has to be internally scrutinized before being said and, depending on who you ask, this is either a case of political correctness gone mad or a progressive sign of the changing times. However, if comedian Jim Carrey had his way, there would be no limits to what people could make a joke out of because he believes that literally everything should be made fun of when it comes to comedy.

Everything to know about Florida evacuations and shelters ahead of Hurricane Irma

At least 1.3 million Florida residents are under mandatory evacuation ahead of Hurricane Irma, which is slated to strike the state as a Category 4 storm on Sunday morning.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott, who declared a statewide emergency earlier this week, said additional evacuations are expected to be issued as Hurricane Irma approaches the state. Scott urged all Floridians to heed local alerts and follow the directions of local officials.

“If you’re told to evacuate, leave, get out quickly,” the governor said at a press conference Friday morning. “This storm is wider than our entire state.”

Scott said people can expect major traffic in Florida as residents and visitors adhere to evacuation orders.

“Please be patient,” he said. “Evacuations are not convenient but they are absolutely meant to keep you safe.”

“I cannot stress this enough — do not ignore evacuation orders,” Scott added. “We
