(Welcome to The Quarantine Stream, a series where the /Film team shares what they’ve been watching while social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.)
The Series: Murder Among the Mormons
Where You Can Stream It: Netflix
The Pitch: A docuseries about a series of bombings in Salt Lake City, and their connection to the Latter Day Saint movement.
Why It’s Essential Quarantine Viewing: There are many true crime docuseries these days, and all of them are inexplicably too long. There’s clearly a certain quota to hit somewhere, and streamers are pushing filmmakers to make a requisite number of episodes to keep people binging. Thankfully, Murder Among the Mormons doesn’t make that mistake. It’s three episodes long and never once overstays its welcome. It’s also pretty damn fascinating.
