Didn’t actually know what to name this blog post so thought I’d title it a bit of everything and just hope for the best.
So, we’ve finally managed to have a Netflix binge & caught up on The Ted Bundy Tapes, I’ll be honest, I didn’t really know who Ted Bundy was prior to watching the Netflix show, I found the 4 episode documentary quite hard to get into, it was slow and I got bored but I stuck with it. It’s a fascinating case that’s for sure, and is chilling in parts too. Ted Bundy was a monster and extremely calculated. How he managed to escape prison twice blew my mind, and went on to kill more girls during his escape just doesn’t bare thinking about. I don’t believe in the death penalty, never have and I don’t think I ever will so obviously hearing about how he was executed wasn’t pleasant, but he took so many peoples lives and he was so incredibly dangerous. If you haven’t managed to see the Netflix four part series, you should.
We watched Abducted in Plain Sight too Which again is on Netflix, another mind blowing case. At first I literally thought the people you see talking in the documentary were actors, as I couldn’t actually believe what I was hearing could ever be true. It basically shows a families torment when one of their daughters gets abducted by their family friend/neighbour. But it’s sooooo much deeper than just that, I mean it’s sick really. I’m not too sure if I like the way the documentary was done, the actual family members resembled actors and seem really fake when speaking, the recreated scenes of what actually happened, annoyed me as well but the case in itself, is bizarre. I came away from watching the 1 hour 30 minute documentary still so bloody confused, I felt like the parents were not right in the head and they were somewhat to blame. It’s a hard one to explain unless you’ve seen it, so I’d recommend it to those who haven’t seen it. Prepare for some fucked up true crime shit.
We took my mum out for Sunday lunch today which was really nice. You can’t beat a good roast dinner on a Sunday can you? How pretty does my creme brûlée look? It tasted amazing.
