It’s only eight episodes
An instance of secondary school penis spray painting doesn’t warrant eight (half-hour) scenes of examination, however American Vandal gains them. The narrative group nearly inspects each bit of proof, each conceivable suspect, each potential result. One scene times the wrongdoing like Sarah Koenig heading to Best Buy for Serial, while tying in some penile math a lá Silicon Valley. It’s superior to anything it has any privilege to be and the four to five hours of show fly by.
