I never knew this guy smoked K2 before he killed himself, I wish that had been talked about even more in this special. The football injuries to his brain surely impacted things as did everything else, but man he won a court case, smoked some spice, and then bam killed himself. That's not a coincidence, not many people have ever smoked that stuff but anyone who has knows it makes you overthink things to the absolute maximum, it literally drives you insane. It makes you see clearly, too clearly, and I'm sure he just thought about everything in his life in that moment and decided this is it, it's my time now. It's not a tragic loss, don't get me wrong, but I think it needs to be talked about more heavily then just the casual mention as that shit will make you feel suicidal in addition to completely stripping you of your decision making skills. Yes his brain injury probably helped, but synthetic weed is not like regular weed, it's not a party time drug, it's a downer and will absolutely fuel suicide. It's not a mystery to me why he did it anymore, at all.


As a non-american I'm just completely shocked that I have somehow never heard this story even tough I watch the NFL from time to time. Crazy story. Another very interesting true crime doc from Netflix.


I'm very into true crime but I had never heard of this case. This was... surprising and shocking. Like... Jesus. It's crazy what people can hide under the hood. Now, the documentary itself is not the best. The storyline is disorganized and they provide information in such a way that you ask yourself "why the fuck is this relevant?" and they never really answer the question. Not in a satisfying manner anyway. They provide little detail on many important things, such as his father's abuse, his relationship with his mother, his cousin, the drug he smoked before committing suicide, etc., but go on and on and on about his sexuality, for example. That bothered me. Most of the relevant information feels watered down even though they do provide good visual content because there's a lot of real footage. As far as documentaries go, this is not super satisfying because you definitely feel like there's a lot more to it. But it gives you a foundation so you can go on and do more research, which is definitely what I'll do.


I listened to the Hernandez podcast by the Boston Globe and found that it provided a more succinct (albeit more detailed in some ways) and linear account on the life of Aaron Hernandez. The podcast featured more stories and perspectives on Aaron's life than this documentary did with much more info surrounding his upbringing, early football career, how he was recruited by Urban Meyer, how he fit into the Patriots locker room and especially about Aaron's father. One of the issues with this documentary was that it kinda glossed over the physical and verbal abuse Aaron, his brother, and his mother suffered from the hands of Hernandez senior. It also glossed over the extent to which Urban Meyer and the Florida Gators got him out of highschool at the young age of 17. The documentary did provide some good visuals, both theatrical and real, on the Hernandez case and also of Aaron's football career at Bristol High. Although, one of the major issues with this documentary that it jumped around far too much in the timeline which might be confusing to some viewers. Overall, I wasn't too impressed with this documentary but it would be a sufficient overview on the tragedy of Aaron Hernandez.


It was okay, but there wasn't really something new.


I thought the quarterback and his dad sounded super phony. And honestly, how do people even rate a documentary?


โ€œWe all want to be apologetic for Aaron and say this is why, this is why, but at the end of the day he made those decisions. - Stephen Ziogas Tough watch. Very personal doc, not much investigation. :football::gun::black_heart:
