Review of "American
Vandal" 10/5/17 by
Airs now on Netflix.
This is a mockumentary series. The tone is that of a true
crime series, like "Making a Murderer," but it's about a
student who's suspected of painting penises on the teachers'
cars. The boy claims that he's innocent.
funny, especially if you like those type of true crime
documentaries. It's very droll. To me they're just doing the
same jokes over and over again, so it kind of wears thin.
Good idea but...not enough jokes.
From co-creators Tony
Yacenda (Pillow Talking) and Dan Perrault (Honest
Trailers), and showrunner Dan Lagana (Zach
Stone Is Gonna Be Famous), 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 investigates the
controversial and potentially unjust expulsion of
troubled senior (and known dick-drawer) Dylan Maxwell.
Not unlike its now iconic true-crime predecessors, the
addictive American Vandal will leave one
question on everyone's minds until the very end: Who
drew the dicks?
