Dirty John : Dirty Betty (Netflix Review)

Creator; Alexandra Cunningham
Crime/Drama/Based on true stories
44 minutes
Season 2 streaming on Netflix

I L O V E it! It’s thrilling, addictive, grasping, shocking, and beautifully insane. + knowing it is based on real crime stories makes it ten times juicer, and excited to watch. A tv-show worth every minute that it’s on, it’s alarming and quite spell-bounding to witness it. You’re in this trance of grimness and shock, unable to comprehend each action, each outcome, and emotion played by the brilliant and phenomenal Amanda Peet. I am in awe, of not only her but the entire production of this fantastic second season.

It gracefully bounces between the decades of ’60s and ’90s with gorgeous costumes and interior, soul grabbing writing with a script that keeps you on the edge of your seat, phenomenal character development and story, it’s fast-paced, to the point, informative and you get outstanding performances by the cast.

Dirty John is a anthology series in which each season is different and based on a true crime story; love tales taking a nasty turn.

Not being that familiar with the real-life background story, it becomes unpredictable, and that is what keeps you hooked and longing for more, unable to turn it off. But if you are familiar with the stories, it’s still a well-done tv-show worthy of your time, for sure a new Netflix hit!

Betty is in denial and won’t accept that her husband wants a divorce, leading her to act out in ugly and unhealthy ways and manners.

Watch it. Enjoy it. Love it. 8/10
