Amazing Show, Maybe Not For All Though

Im 14, a freshman. And I watched this with my dad, and we loved this show. I think its worth the watch if you're into good acting, theatrical re-tellings, and twisted love stories. The series is based on a true story, although it's very symbolic and theatrical. I think this show did a good job at displaying the facts and evidence without picking sides, and straying far from the truth. The cinemtography is next level, and something I've never seen before. The acting is amazing and totally convicing. Although it's rated TV-MA, it all comes down to what you think you can handle. There isn't any sex scenes, it isn't extremely violent (there are guns and people are shown getting shot in the chest, although the blood isn't red). However there is one thing to watch out for and that is one of our main characters, Susan, was sexually abused by her father. It is never shown, and is only mentioned onced in a interview with police. But it's important to the plot and it isn't really described in detail, all that is mentioned was that she was abused sexually. There are uses of the f word and other words, but it's nothing kids haven't heard before. Trust me it isn't, i've gone to a public and private school and I've heard worse. It's a very gripping and amazing story, it's a very artsy take on mental illness and what drives a person to do certian things. If you're into old movies, the whole entire series is chalk full of references, even certian scenes are in black and white. There are times when the characters walk off set and the camera follows them, off set, as they describe the events that occurred during the murders. But overall this is definitely going on my favorite list of TV shows. Good messages such as loyalty, love, trust, and imagination.
