When my personal life or the outside world starts feeling overwhelming, true crime is what I turn to in order to self-soothe. There is something oddly comforting about the way crime stories let us ponder questions about ethics, the law, family dynamics, and trauma, all in a mystery package. Whether the stories are ultimately resolved or remain troublingly open-ended, it’s really the journey that’s the point. Nothing else can really compare.
Let’s be honest: True crime shows and documentaries are all kinds of addictive. It’s why people gawk when they see flashing lights or accidents in real life, they want to know what’s happening. TV true-crime offerings let viewers do just that from the comfort of their own homes, passing judgment on those involved from the safety of their couches and beds. Whether it’s a scripted version of notorious crimes like Hulu’s The Act, which retold the story of Dee Dee and Gypsy Rose Blanchard, or a documentary featuring those directly involved in the crime, like Jan Broberg and Abducted in Plain Sight, true crime content is some of the best kinds of content. Especially now while most of the country adheres to social distancing and stay-at-home orders to battle the spread of the coronavirus.
