The first two episodes fucked me up. But then they sat down with the investigators, they asked all the right questions. The fourth episode unravels the whole thing and...spoils the scariness of the whole thing. They exhaustively piece together her final days.

It's kind of like the Winnebago Man documentary where they finally track down the guy and he's this okay dude who's like, what?

We just finished this last night. The creepiness of the elevator video is only offset by the depression that sets in about the whole thing toward the end. It sort of reminded me of this movie my wife and I watched one weekend back when we first started dating: https://youtu.be/QE_RFzXq4Ls

I'm just stuck with the idea of how horrible it must be to die in a water tank hallucinating your balls off.

I regret watching it. This was my favorite creeper mystery story for so long... And now, yeah, it's just sad. The video was edited and slowed down on purpose (and for perfectly reasonable reasons), the internet was simply stupid and illiterate, and no one online bothered to do a lick of research or background. I loved how all the cops were like, well... Yeah, this is nothing.

And super sad to hear about the story of that death metal guy. Jesus.

Yes! Morbid! I felt horrible for him. But, I mean... if moonlighting as a black metal musician and posting some of the shit he did, I have a hard time believing his shock at the accusations is totally genuine. This is the same genre of musicians from Norway (Mayhem) who set fire to churches and went to prison for murdering one another.

Just finished Crime Scene last night. While Iím glad they really leaned away from the supernatural explanations, I found the whole web sleuth phenomenon disturbing. The third episode where they just had them all expounding on theories and getting crazy worked up was almost unwatchable. I suppose they did exactly what we did, but as you guys mentioned, we never hounded a Mexican death metal guy to nearly commit suicide.

The ending was somber but maybe thatís best. I thought the undercurrent of ďmaybe we all need to stop overreacting to shitĒ was valid and timely.

I loved the blonde hotel manager who was just nonplussed by everything. ďItís the Cecil Hotel, man. Dead chick in the water tank barely raises the needle on shot Iím concerned about.Ē
