Storyline

Clearly a riff on the streaming giant's acclaimed true crime series Making A Murderer and The Keepers, American Vandal is 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. Over the course of the eight-episode season, an aspiring sophomore documentarian Peter Maldanaldo investigates the controversial and potentially unjust expulsion of Dylan Maxwell, the troubled senior accused of the phallic vandalization. Written by ahmetkozan

A great parody that can stand on its own two legs
15 September 2017 | by alyssam-43984See all my reviews

This series is exactly what it appears to be- a mockumentary of all the "True Crime" documentaries out there- while at the same time building its own story and characters that you grow to love and root for. There were moments when I forgot I was watching fiction and genuinely wanted to scream at idiotic authority figures and the overall injustice represented on screen. Those were only a few moments, though. For the most part I laughed at the exaggerated high school drama.

American Vandal was very well-written, well-acted, and well-constructed. It even begins to pick up a moral of its own, and you come away not only with an amazing new comedy, but with a deep truth about how preconceived notions and judgments of a person can have lasting impacts on a person's life, especially a young one.
