What it is: An NBC newsmagazine show. This episode goes over the investigation of the murder of a young woman in a small Wisconsin town.
I don’t want to say snarky stuff about this true crime thing about a real person getting murdered. I would if the show itself was weird and/or exploitative, and I suppose the fact that this murder is being appropriated for infotainment is itself exploitative, but nothing about the execution of this episode particularly jumps out to me as offensive. I don’t know. This is what people who stay in and watch broadcast TV on Friday nights watch. The world is a scary place.
