Netflix hit it big in 2015 when they released the documentary series Making a Murderer, which looked into the conviction of Steven Avery, a man who served 18 years in prison for a prison he did not commit, although he was convicted later of a second murder, which he also claims innocence for.

There are a ton of TV shows like this, including a new Netflix series called I am a Killer, which actually looks at convicted people who admit to their crimes.

It was ripe for a mockumentary and got one that just blew audiences away in American Vandal. The premise of the first season was two high school students who launch an investigation to determine if the class clown Dylan Maxwell was really guilty of drawing phallic images on faculty cars.

The Netflix original series is a perfect satire of both high school life as well as of the true crime documentaries that are so beloved and watched.

The second season had a lot to live up to but it succeeded by changing up the show. Instead of focusing on Sam and Peter investigating a crime concerning kids in their own school that they know, they are called to another school to investigate a prankster known as the Turd Burglar and the accused — who also claims to be innocent.

The second season seems a little less personal, but still delivers the gags, hilarious interviews with clueless high school kids and a surprising look at social issues that teenagers have to deal with.
