When it comes to docu-series, I think we have to admit that Netflix does it best. From popular series such as Making A Murderer, to Wild Wild Country, fans really do go crazy when they release a new docu-series. However, some of them can be pretty hard to watch. I remember watching Evil Genius and almost needing a couple of hours to process what just happened. Well, Netflix is now warning people not to watch the newest docuseries, Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes, alone.
If you follow Netflix's social media, you'll know how quirky and millennial-sounding they are. I personally love it, but this time they were a little more serious. The docu-series, which consist of four one hour episodes, was released on January 24th. That date is significant, because it's the exact date Ted Bundy was executed on.
Netflix UK & Ireland sent out a tweet when the series was available for streaming, and said, "For those of us with a PhD in true crime podcasts, Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes is now streaming. Maybe don't watch it alone x". This would've been nice to know before we binged it, Netflix. You can view the tweet below:

Obviously, fans reacted to the tweet in hilarious ways. One person said, "IM WATCHING IT ALONE AT WORK IN THE OFFICE RN AND I GOT A TEXT AND MY PHONE VIBRATED SUPER LOUD ON THE DESK AND I SCREAMED". Seriously, Netflix is not lying.
If you're not familiar with the Ted Bundy case, then you're in for a treat as well as a very, very long ride. From February 1974 to February 1978, Ted Bundy murdered over 30 women and one man. The reason it took him so long to get caught? Well, everyone claimed he was charming, looked like a 'normal guy', and even when he was on trial women had crushes on him.
Even just watching the trailer, I don't think I'd be able to watch this alone and I am one of those people Netflix is talking about. You've been warned, but watch at your own risk!
