TLDR

It's like a social deduction game in documentary format.

What it's about

This series covers a variety of strange unexplained cases—from hauntings to alien encounters—with detailed insights from experts and those who lived through the stories.

The take

It's refreshing being able to satisfy an appetite for mystery without grisly crime stories being the focus all the time (on Netflix no less).  The series does a fine job humanizing and fleshing out these stories, spending ample time on interviewees who speak with conviction and betrayal in their eyes, those who struggle with the toll that skeptical media has had on them. At the same time, when the "logical" perspectives are brought in, it adds intrigue and layers to each episode, leaving viewers to play a social deduction game by themselves with all the information given. With a tone as friendly as eerie stories will allow, and to varying degrees of success, the show delivers on its promise of intrigue.

What stands out

This is maybe the only film that could make me say, "Yeah, I enjoyed those guide questions."
