Satire true crime show where a dude gets expelled for drawing 27 dicks on teachers' cars. I just binged watched it all tonight. Similar to Making a Murderer and Serial, but hilarious and fascinating.

Can't believe there hasn't been a thread made for this. Watch it all. Now.

Ok Sarah and I watched 6 episodes this morning. It's pretty fantastic, I love how they did from a high school student's perspective. Makes it seem so much more realistic.

Just finished the pilot. I found everything hilarious. They absolutely nailed the look and feel of these types of shows. I agree with everyone that the actors are totally believable as real high schoolers. This show is going to do extremely well.

I honestly believe you are the one who framed that kid... it looks exactly like your tagging. It would explain the red coloring all over your hands, the last time I saw you. You said you painted a barn... the truth is out there.

We started this last night and probably watched 5 or 6 episodes. It started off really fun and hilarious, but now I really want to know the conclusion to the mystery. I feel dumb because I know it's fake, but I'm as invested in this case as I was with Making a Murderer.

I think this is really funny, but after a few episodes, it feels like a chore to me.

I think if I watch one episode every other day or something, I'll still enjoy it.

Can't believe all these people watching 3+ hours of this without stopping.

I agree with this. We watched 4 episodes in 2 episode chunks on Sunday.

I noticed last night that the opening credits are fake, as if the students did them.

Episode 4 starting turning away from the comedy and focus on the stakes. I still laughed plenty during the episode, but it was noticeably less than the previous. Things got pretty serious when the 2 writers/producers had to make profiles on each other.

Still loving the show. I'm actually more impressed that they can continue the story without relying only on jokes.

We didn't completely finished the episode because someone fell asleep, but I thought it was cool how episode 5 expanded the show universe. Was interesting that the documentary was published mid progress and it effected the story. Clever way to add more drama and length to the story.

Do HS'ers really record/snap chat every aspect of a party?

You seriously asking that question?? If you didn't notice from the show, Millenials tend to judge their worth by likes, followers, views or what have you on social media. My college son lives his life on Instagram and Snapchat. It appears that the younger generations put more emphasis on fake/imagenary friends than real-life/true friends. Granted, he's grown out of it after high school, where more emphasis has been put on growing relationships with actual people he can meet and have fun with over calling peoiple he meets through gaming and social media his friends. But its odd to see or hear someone to judge their self-worth because of the amount of likes or views they got on social media.

I judge my worth in life based on how active CPT is.

Finished tonight. I was satisfied and saddened by the ending. As I said before, the more the show went on the less funny it got and the more invested I became.

2 actual funny parts about the ending were Kraz getting fired and him just walking off stage in the background when the PE teacher gets his teacher of the year award.
