True crime documentaries are majorly big deals when it comes to binge watching a series these days and most people would credit Making A Murderer for this, but a lot of us still remember The Jinx and how that really set the tone before everyone went crazy over the case of Steven Avery.

The Jinx was all about Robert Durst – a man who had been accused and acquitted of several murders but may have been guilty. The series gained a lot of traction as Durst seemingly confessed to the murders at the end of it when he forgot that his microphone was on and went on a rant to himself about them and he was subsequently arrested and charged with first degree murder – although he’s still awaiting a trial at the time of writing.
The creators of The Jinx have now moved on from Durst’s case and are instead examining a very different case in their new six part series ‘No One Saw A Thing’. The series examines the case of a town bully who was shot dead in a small town in the American heartland in front of around 60 people, yet all of them claim to this day that they never saw a thing. It intends to examine the effects the corrosive effects of vigilantism in this case and looks like there’s going to be a whole lot more to it than first meets the eye.

Yeah that does look like you’re going to go down the rabbit hole with that a bit doesn’t it? And it looks like whatever you find there is going to be pretty harrowing and upsetting. Should be another great binge watch.
It premieres over in the US on August 1st and I expect it will be shown over here at some point shortly afterwards, although not exactly sure just when at this point. Keep a look out.
For more of the same, check out Robert Durst explaining why he made that confession at the end of The Jinx. Still doesn’t make sense.
