    "One of the best documentary TV shows is Catfish: The TV Show. It's a great show where they test the authenticity of people who have fallen in love with someone online. It shows how so many people fall for stories that are completely made up. It shows that you have to question and research everyone who you are getting close to online."

    "Out of all the recent documentary TV shows, Making a Murderer is the best I've ever seen. The story is so compelling. A real murder mystery if you ask me, sometimes it's hard to tell if he really commited the crimes or not. He sure seems guilty in some areas of the case. Great TV here."

    "An interesting show about fishing and the conditions fisherman have to face. Whether this be catching rare and exotics aquatic life to battling icy waters and storms in the middle of the night. It can be interesting if you're looking for something more real in your TV viewing."

    "This is a good documentary TV show in terms of true crime. While it is a little too gritty for my taste, the suspense, succinctness, and highly detailed story actually comes though with a confession from Durst, but one that seems is not admissible in court."
