The Jinx - Season Two

This is amazing if you love true crime. I just watched the first episode of the new season and it picks up with the airing of the first season and Bobby Durst trying to escape to Cuba.

Whatever became of his wife Debrah Lee Charatan?

I’m tired of his story

She's still "married" to him, r3. She was down in New Orleans visiting him in jail after he was captured.

How is she alive! I guess she never blackmailed him about his murder of Kathie.

All the talk of the fear that a criminal defendant from a major NY real estate family might be threatening potential witnesses certainly brings to mind someone else.

Holy fuck- that Berman chick he killed was a PIECE OF SHIT. That recorded phone call was a revelation. Its like a crime noir thriller where one scumbag turns on the other..

She got what she deserved.

Episode 5 is CRAZY! Anyone watch it yet??

His family is shit. They knew he killed his shiksa wife. The6 knew he was torturing and killing dogs. They knew he was traveling around the country for no discernible reason. He didn’t have a job, He didn’t have a wife and family. He was just going from place to murder people and move on. His brother smirked when talking about him killing the dogs. Piece of shit family.

I have a wacko sister. If I was as rich as the Durst family and I knew she was killing people I’d hire a private detective to get evidence and then I’d turn her ass into the police.

That Deborah wife is a piece of shit too.

I'm not a big fan of true crime, but this series is so well done! Most Netflix-style true crime wallows in the pain of the victims or the methods of the criminal, and frankly, is not very well edited. This series is more of a sociological take on a crime. It shows how so many different people enabled Durst to get away with it because they all thought that they had something to gain. It also presents a very interesting look at the Texan and New York sides of the stories. I'm from Houston and I thought the Texas angle was really smart. It didn't go in for stereotypes. I'm in the middle of season 2 now.

I can't believe that all four of his attorneys left town without talking to Durst! $12 million!!!

Remember Capturing the Friedmans? The dad was obviously guilty as sin. The jailed son was guilty probably to a lesser extent as a sidekick, being clearly groomed and abused by the dad.

But Andrew Jarecki structured it to make them look sympathetic and to provide some plausible deniability.

I haven’t seen much of season 2 of The Jinx but I wonder how Jarecki’s methods compare here.

Durst is not sympathetic. I find him kind of inscrutable. Everyone in his orbit says he's charismatic, but he comes across as creepy and awkward. I like this series a lot more than Capturing the Friedmans, but I saw it a long time ago and don't really remember it.

If Trump is looking for a loyal vice president, he could do worse than picking Debbie Charatan.

Was there really no more information about Durst dying?

Debbie was quite the meeskite before she met Bob.

The first season was so fascinating, and what a climactic ending. Second was ok - mostly cleanup, but still fascinating.

by Anonymousreply 20May 27, 2024 4:30 PM

The second season had no reason to exist. At most it should have been a two hour movie covering the trial and Durst’s death. But there was literally nothing here to justify 6 hour long episodes.

The Chavin situation was so strange.

Slow is perfect for R23.

I finally watched the first season of The Jinx. I’m not usually into true crime documentaries but it was amazing and totally lived up to the hype.

by Anonymousreply 27June 9, 2024 9:58 AM
