Our collective fascination with psychopaths, murderers, and serial killers is apparent, as countless media outlets are completely inundated with true crime content. Via television, film, podcasts, and more, the true crime genre is experiencing a crazy surge in popularity.
TL;DR Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes is a new true crime docu-series just released on Netflix's this past weekend, audiences are already calling it a hit.
When a particular genre gains rapid popularity, it's only a matter of time before every network is banging out a true crime series to get audiences hooked. Be warned though, because quantity doesn't always mean quality. Not all true crime shows are worth watching.
That said, as a fan of true crime myself, I was skeptical when I first heard of Netflix's original docu-series Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes.
You might recognize the name Ted Bundy because he is one of the most notorious serial killers in American history, and this five-part documentary series was released on the 30th anniversary of his execution.
What makes the series so unique is that it features never-before-heard snippets from chilling real audio interviews of Bundy talking with journalists.
Audiences seem to be completely blown away by how charming he is. Which helps explain how he managed to elude authorities as he committed 30 homicides.
So far, people are loving the docu-series.

Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes is AMAZING. I love a serial killer doco, but they so rarely narrate it themselves...! It's terrifying how much he didn't *look like* a homicidal psychopath.— Megan (@427_Impala) January 28, 2019

Please watch Conversations With A Killer on Netflix instead of this crap that somehow romanticizes a vicious murderer and r*pist. We know he was deceptively charming but you need to tell people he was a sociopath who thought he could do whatever he wanted to women. https://t.co/puPpWUSOwb— Jobie Alvarez (@JobieAlvarez137) January 28, 2019

Netflix’s ‘Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes’ is an insightful look into a shockingly evil, unsound of mind and ultimately conniving individual. Solid step by step historical analyses from crime documentary king, Joe Berlinger.— C.N.Robertson (@C_N_Robertson) January 28, 2019
