    "Making a Murderer is one of the best documentary series I have watched. The story of Steven Avery is absolutely riveting. There were times while watching I would get so frustrated or angry. My wife said it reminded her of other guys watching a sports game. If you have a Netflix subscription and enjoy, not just documentaries, but crime stories at all then you need to give this a watch."

    "Nuns and religion always draw me in for some reason. This documentary is quite interesting, well done and contains a few surprises. I think its worth watching, I found it to be well done. I like Netflix documentaries, I watch them in between TV series for something new."

    "This is a perfectly acceptable answer to the question however, it seems more like a matter of opinion. But, once I clicked the link Netflix had other suggestions that I might enjoy so I like this solution."

    "The Session is the latest camera from GoPro. It is a great little camera with a good resolution overall. It's not the same level of detail as seen with the Hero Silver, however for people like me who find themselves in the woods for days at a time, it's awesome to be able to have a lightweight and compact form factor to pack in. Function -The Hero Session features a one-click operation. Click the main button once, video recording starts at the specified default resolution. You can set this with the camera itself via the buttons or in the remote control app on your phone/pad. If you hold the main button for 3 seconds, it will start a time lapse. Easy peasy."
