Onion Ring Scandals to Deadly Water Parks: Watch These 5 Docs When You Need a Break From True Crime


I’m a huge fan of true crime, and while there were some great new additions to the genre—my personal 2020 frontrunners are Murder on Middle Beach and Heaven’s Gate: Cult of Cults—this last year has also felt especially grim. Now, as vaccination rates are up and much of the country is experiencing something that feels like normalcy and hope, many (myself included) are in the mood for viewing that’s a little more uplifting. Think less gruesome murders and more onion ring scandals and Blockbuster nostalgia. As such, I’ve gathered some of the must-watch documentaries from the last couple of years—some of which you may have missed amid the pandemic—that are the perfect antidote for too many true crime binges.
