THE SONS OF SAM – conspiratorial doco or the truth right in front of us?

Advertisement

Haven’t we overdosed on true crime docos yet?

In the mid-1970s a wave of brutal attacks took place in greater New York City. For no apparent reason people were being brutally murdered, and fear gripped the city. Letters were being published from the serial killer, signed ‘The Son of Sam’. Eventually David Berkowitz was arrested and confessed to these crimes as their sole perpetrator.

So this week we take a different tack as we dive in for our Group Binge on the four part sort-of-documentary series THE SONS OF SAM (Netflix). The documentary follows the work of investigative journalist Maury Terry who held fast to the belief that Berkowitz couldn’t be the only one involved in the ‘Son of Sam’ killings…in fact he believed it was a part of a larger Satanic cult at work in New York. Charmed, I’m sure.

There’s also a very exciting update on our much-loved Dan!

Now that we’ve got you come and join us on the TV Bingebox Gang Facebook Group. There’s lots of great people there watching a vast array of TV, and we’d love to know what’s pressing your buttons and what’s turning you off.

Speaking of which, our Clap or Slap programs for this week are quite the bunch! Here’s a bunch of shows we’ve been watching that we share our opinions on: LINE OF DUTY (Britbox); GIRLS5EVA (Stan); HAVE YOU BEEN PAYING ATTENTION? (10); TOO HOT TO HANDLE (Netflix); SEE WHAT YOU MADE ME DO (SBS); OVERSERVED WITH LISA VANDERPUMP (hayU); 7 NEWS SPOTLIGHT: CRAIG McLACHLAN (Seven); and LEGO MASTERS AUSTRALIA (Nine).


Join Jo, Brooky and Molk as we give you some great tips, hints on shows to watch and those to give a wide berth to as we land squarely in the TV Bingebox!
