Go To
Who drew the dicks?

Peter Maldonado: I'm making a documentary about Dylan's case. Kind of like Serial.
Lawyer: That's a terrible idea.

American Vandal is a 2017 Netflix original Mockumentary series parodying True Crime docuseries, except revolving around high school pranks.

The first season focuses on a prank that involves somebody sneaking into Hanover High School in Oceanside, CA and spray-painting penises on the 27 cars of the school's faculty. Senior class clown Dylan Maxwell is accused of the crime and subsequently expelled. However, documentary filmmaker Peter Maldonado believes there is more to the story. Together with his best friend Sam Ecklund, he creates the documentary series American Vandal to investigate the case and prove Dylan's innocence. But along the way, they discover many more secrets about the school than they expected.

The University of St Gallen remains top overall, the seventh consecutive year that the Swiss school’s MA in Strategy and International Management has headed the ranking. HEC Paris stays in second place, a position it has held since 2014, while Spain’s IE Business School jumps four places to third.
Judge for yourself.


His footballing rival Lionel Messi - who the 31-year-old beat to be crowned the World Player of the Year in January - was second on the list, taking home pound 56 million in 2015/16.

This show provides examples of:

  • 100% Adoration Rating: Ming Zhang, a foreign exchange student notorious in the school for just being a Nice Guy in general. When discussing the alibis for the members of the news team (who had access to the security footage), Ming is ruled out as a suspect simply because "Dude, it's Ming."

  • Affectionate Parody: Of true crime docs like Serial or Netflix's own Making A Murderer.
  • All for Nothing:
    • The finale of Season 1 paints the entire series as this. From the first episode, whether or not Dylan was innocent and blamed just because of his reputation was the question. After trial and tribulation, and weeks upon weeks of investigating, it then turns out that yes, he was innocent. So he no longer has to pay the price for a crime he didn't commit. However, on top of not getting into his dream college and losing his cheating girlfriend, Dylan comes to the sad realization that practically everyone he knows, adult and student alike, think he's a troublemaker who will never amount to anything. So he spray-paints a dick on Ms. Shapiro's driveway for real and has to serve prison time. And just on top of that, the true vandal is never confirmed, just implied.
    • It turns out that in Season 2, the Turd Burglar blackmailed people with their own salacious photos/video in order to compel them to do his crimes. When Peter lets him know the jig is up before calling the police, the Burglar releases everything he has online.
  • Alpha Bitch: Subverted with Sara. Early interviews paint a picture of her as this, but she's later revealed to be a fairly normal girl who doesn't care about popularity (e.g. her hooking with Pat Micklewaite of all people).
  • Ambiguous Disorder: Kevin's awkward mannerisms, smug persona, and elaborately anal-retentive methods of "properly" enjoying tea can all be indicators that he is on the autism spectrum somewhere. It’s actually brought up in-universe by a classmate who claims that Kevin isn’t autistic. This is further supported toward the end of the season, where Kevin confesses to have constructed his quirky persona in order to cope with being ostracized. Since his peers saw him as "weird" Overall, state-owned and private businesses invested an unprecedented $23bn in Europe — including Norway and Switzerland as well as the EU — in 2015 while investing $15bn in the US, according to a report by Baker & McKenzie, a lawfirm, and Rhodium Group, a consultancy..
  • Ambiguous Situation
    • Is Peter's final theory, that Christa and her boyfriend Van spray-painted the dicks, accurate? It all adds up, and Christa's tense final interview heavily implies it. But, as Peter notes, he's been down this road before, with seemingly rock-solid, all-but-proven theories ultimately disproved. His suspicions are never confirmed.
    • It's never confirmed one way or another just how much of a Bitch in Sheep's Clothing Ms. Shapiro really is. She may or may not have coerced a student to accuse another student she disliked of cheating. She may or may not have been playing good cop to the vice principal's bad cop to coax someone into giving information about the vandal. She does lie about her car tire being slashed when she actually ran over a nail, but Peter himself offers the theory that she truly does think Dylan is guilty (having had him as a horrible student for years) and that she lies because she thinks she's doing good by ridding the school of a troublemaker.
    • Assuming that it was Christa that was the vandal: after a player pummels her at football tryouts, Coach Rafferty apparently said something bad enough to completely push her over the edge and drive her, a straight-A Honor student, to draw the dicks. What exactly he said is never revealed. All that's known is that it was bad enough for her to make a report.

  • Answer Cut: Dylan has a job where he delivers random items people order (like food or diapers) to them. Sometimes, though, he eats customers' food (e.g. enough fries not to be noticeable). As Dylan says he didn't draw all the dicks, one of the defenses he has is that he's too dumb to delete the security footage that was wiped. Peter then brings up to the audience that Dylan has a YouTube channel and does have basic knowledge of uploading videos. He poses about Dylan "Is he really dumb as he lets on?" Cut to:
    Customer Dylan is delivering food to: Did you eat the fries?
    Dylan: Yeah.
    Peter (talking to the audience again): Personally, I think he is.
  • Asshole Victim: Dylan is railroaded and expelled for a crime he didn't commit, and he's the spark for the aesop about stereotyping people described above. However, he really is kind of an unlikable prick, someone who tends to treat people like crap and engage in childish, mean-spirited pranks like "toddler farting" and "nun humping." And he really did torture Mrs. Shapiro for years.

    • These brands are close to their domestic markets, helping them to gain market share at the expense of global brands, and they are also winning share in new regions, according to BrandZ.
  • Big Bad: The Dick Drawer in Season 1. The Turd Burglar in Season 2.
  • Bittersweet Ending:
    • Season 1: Dylan is exonerated of drawing the dicks on the teachers' cars, but he loses his girlfriend for the last time, has no college prospects, and he resigns himself to being the idiot that everyone sees him as. It culminates in him drawing a dick on Shapiro's driveway for real, and thus getting arrested. It is also never confirmed who really drew the dicks, but if it really is Christa, she receives no punishment for it. Also, Peter's documentary alienates him from some of the students whose secrets have been exposed as a result. On the upside, Sam and Gabi are on better terms.
    • Season 2: Though Grayson is outed as the mastermind behind the Turd Burglar, Kevin is still guilty of the Brownout incident, as he was catfished by Grayson into doing it. His sentence is not commuted as a result, but his friendship with Tanner is mended, and he and Chloe are close again. DeMarcus' reputation has been severely dented and he's probably lost quite a few college offers, but the ordeal inspires him to take control of his life from Lou and his father, even starting a free basketball clinic for kids in his neighborhood, and he still gets a full ride to college in the end. Though a teacher was fired and Mrs. Wexler resigned over circumstances surrounding the Turd Burglar, any additional consequences of Grayson leaking everyone's private photos, videos and conversations, outside of Grayson's sentencing, have yet to be seen, but it's insinuated that Drew Pankratz's life has been scarred forever. Also, Perry still suffers no consequences for bullying and sexually harassing Paige, and there's no indication that the over-privileged attitude towards student athletes that let Perry get away it and helped corrupt Grayson has been changed or even recognized.
  • Book Dumb: Dylan admits that he is this, even explicitly saying he isn't "book smart".
  • Bookends: Season 1 begins and ends with footage of Peter asking Dylan who he is.
    Dylan: "I'm... I don't know man. I'm just Dylan. That's a stupid question."
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Mr. Kraz and a few others seem to think this is the case with Ms. Shapiro; Christa even states that one of her friends was coerced into saying a student Shapiro didn't like cheated off of her.
  • Captain Obvious: After Jenna explains that a girl named Brooke Wheeler blackmailed her into doing the Shit Launcher prank and gave her all the Turd Burglar paraphernalia to do it, Peter asks, "So Brooke Wheeler is the Turd Burglar?" Jenna just stares at him in disbelief for a moment before saying, "Did... YEAH!"
  • Cassandra Truth: Christa starts the I Am Spartacus moment by saying she drew the dicks. The Season 1 finale heavily implies that she, along with her boyfriend, had a major part in drawing the dicks.
    • Kevin tells Peter to call off the investigation because he was in fact the Turd Burglar the whole time; Peter and Sam write it off as another coerced confession. While it wasn't the whole truth, Kevin was in fact trying to admit his very real guilt.
  • Chekhov's Party:
    • Nana's party in Season 1. Initially simply where Alex claimed (falsely) to have hooked up with Sara, it was actually where the spray paints had come from that drew the dicks, narrowing it down to someone who had been in attendance there.
    • In Season 2, the skip day party that got broken up and got several people arrested. Tanner testified against Kevin because of thinking Kevin broke it up. He didn't, Lou did, trying to sabotage DeMarcus.
  • Chekhov's Skill: Averted. Christa's alibi was that she was getting her CPR and First Aid certificate. However, when Ming passes out at the post-prom party, she panics and asks if anyone knows CPR.
  • Childhood Friend Romance:
    • [pi'tr?uli?m]
    • The banking industry has been experiencing a low profit growth period and will be for a long time, the National Business Daily reported, citing an expert. He said the banks' yearly profits growth reached 35 to 40 per cent in the past dozen years, but now the growth had slowed to less than 1 per cent, with some banks even recording a loss.
  • Consummate Liar: Alex Trimboli is constantly lying in order to get popular — claiming to get a handjob from Sara Pearson, saying he was the drunkest person at Nana's Party, and giving info about the dick drawing in order to bring back off-campus lunches for seniors. In the final episode of Season 1, it's revealed that he may have actually seen the real vandal and just assumed it was Dylan because the two looked similar.]]
  • Contrived Coincidence: In Season 2, Peter and Sam inadvertently receive a text from the Turd Burglar at the exact same minute that their two chief suspects are on security camera footage that they later acquire, "exonerating" both of them.
  • Convicted by Public Opinion: Dylan's case had circumstantial evidence at best plus one unreliable eye witness, but several teachers and other students saw him as a failure from the word "go" and barely gave him a chance to defend himself. To be fair, Dylan admits that as a student he's apathetic at best, and constantly disrupting class for stupid jokes that aren't even funny... just like the dick drawing is seen to be.
  • Conviction by Contradiction: Not 'conviction', but strong evidence, as Christa claims to have gotten CPR training during the time of the vandalism. However, she freaks out when Ming passes out from intoxication at a party and asks if anyone knows CPR. This strongly implies that her alibi is fake, and therefore had the opportunity to commit the crime, even if her leg cast meant she needed an accomplice.
  • Cool Teacher: Mr. Kraz is a deconstruction. He's "cool" because he's immature. His edgy and irreverent comments get him fired from his teacher's position by the mid-point of the first season, and he's unemployed for the remainder.
  • Country Matters: Dylan's mom calls Mrs. Shapiro a "See You Next Tuesday."
  • 涂料行业翻天巨变 “单品打天下”无力为继: in Season 1, Alex Trimboli says that the dick drawer was wearing a hoodie. If the vandal had simply worn the hood up for extra protection, while the scandal and issues with lunch would have played out the same way, Dylan's ordeal (and probably the documentary) wouldn't have happened.
    • Even worse, Mackenzie spends the entire season withholding a video that proved Dylan was at her house during the vandalism because it showed evidence of her cheating on him.
  • CPR: Clean, Pretty, Reliable: Sara manages to revive Ming with this when he passes out at party. It works and he wakes up none the worse for wear, but it's not really clear what he passed out from and how exactly the CPR worked.
  • Creepy Gym Coach: The coach, Mr Rafferty, appears to be extremely genial and popular, but it's hinted at that he's abused his position from time to time; one student believes he "roofied people" and Peter learns that there's a mention on his file of showing "inappropriate conduct with a student. And there's whatever he said to Christa after knocking her down and injuring her, but it's never explicitly confirmed how sinister he is.
  • 明晰标准自律管理 民宿由乱到治还需规范加码: Season 2's "Brownout". One gets the feeling from how it's handled that the main reason it wasn't called the "School Shitting" is that it would belabor the metaphor.

  • Dude, Where's My Respect?: After Dylan returns to school, Ms. Shapiro's weak apology for accusing him and dismissal of his suffering drives him to vandalize her driveway.
  • Dumbass Has a Point: Dylan's older brother says in an interview that he knew Dylan wouldn't work well with Ms. Shapiro as a teacher, and that he told him several times not to take her, all while calling him an idiot. Dylan (who was offscreen just a few feet away the whole time) points out he had to take a foreign language. His brother just flips him off.
  • Eureka Moment: Sam gets a few of these by noticing details Peter overlooks.
    • After Peter realizes that the spray paint can came from Nana's Party, Sam is the one who notices the splatter. This leads to strong evidence that Shapiro wasn't the target - and that either Vice Principal Keene, Mr Maeda or Coach Rafferty was. Investigating students with a motive against Coach Rafferty not only leads to the reveal of Mackenzie's cheating - which allows the video footage of Dylan's alibi to be revealed - but begins Peter and Sam's re-investigation of Christa.
    • During the house party in the final episode of Season 1. When Ming passes out from drinking, Christa Carlyle anxiously asks if anyone knows CPR. When she claimed her alibi was completing her training for CPR. After hearing this he realizes that she lied about the alibi.
    • As he and Peter review social media footage of The Brownout he believes Kevin's contorted facial expression means he was forcing himself to poop to appear to be a victim. He's right.
    • He realizes that the calendar in the staff room of St. Bernadine's is exactly the same calendar as the one shown in one of the Turd Burglar's social media posts.
  • Everybody Did It: Played with in Season 2. While all the main suspects did do one of the pranks (Kevin, Jenna, DeMarcus, all are acting at the behest of a Big Bad, Grayson, and all except Kevin are unwilling participants.)
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": "Hot Janitor", a conventionally attractive custodian at St. Bernadine. His real name isn't even revealed when Peter & Sam interview him.

  • Exact Words: Christa Carlyle ends her interview in the final episode of Season 1 by denying that she drew the dicks. According to Peter’s theory, she really didn’t draw them: her boyfriend Van drew the dicks while Christa erased the footage.
  • Fan-Preferred Couple: In-universe, Sam and Gabi have a lot of fans among Sam and Peter's viewers.
  • Feigning Intelligence: Throughout Season 2, people note that Kevin isn't that intelligent; He just says thing he thinks smart people say. There are a number of times where we see him trying to be smarter than he is. He recalls describing a pop song "an ocular disaster" when he was in 6th grade, which Chloe notes she had to look up and discover that he was using the word wrong. In another scene, he says that DeMarcus' poem "makes Dr. Seuss look like..." but can't come up with the name of a "more serious" poet.
  • Femme Fatale: Mackenzie is completely willing to have Dylan expelled and arrested while withholding evidence that proves him innocent. She only presents the evidence to save her own skin when Peter starts building a case against her.
  • Freeze-Frame Bonus: Christa Carlyle can be seen holding the spray can near the end of the party video.
    • In season 2, a shot of Peter's laptop reveals chat logs of recent conversations with not only Sam, but Gabi Granger, Dylan Maxwell, and Alex Trimboli.
  • Gamer Chick: Mackenzie is one with a pretty successful Twitch channel.
  • Gonk: Pat Micklewaite, which is why Peter is so frustrated by him being so popular despite being an apparent loser like he is. Pat gets invited to parties and is on multiple girls' hook-up lists, but Peter is barely acknowledged.

  • Hidden Depths:
    • Sara Pearson, whose characterization up until that point is mostly just that she's very attractive and has a hookup list, actually knows CPR, something that all-round honor student Christa Carlyle doesn't manage.

  • Hope Spot:
    • Episode 4 of Season 1 ends with Mr. Janson's daughter contacting Peter about the voicemail tape that could exonerate Dylan. In episode 5, she destroys the tape in front of Peter's face out of spite for bringing her and her father unnecessary harassment.
    • In the Season 1 finale: Things are looking well for Dylan now that he's been proven innocent and he talks highly about bettering himself but slowly as the episode progresses he becomes less and less happy about his circumstances. Ms. Shapiro apologized for the accusation but stood by how she felt about his treatment to her, The College he thought he had lost for the accusations did not accept him, Mackenzie finally decides to permanently end their relationship and when he finally sees the Documentary everyone has given him support for at the party he realizes that before it went viral nobody even cared about if he did it or not and found him to be a loser for how he already was.
  • Hot for Teacher: Coach Rafferty is crushed on by a few students. In Season 2, one of the janitors is only known as "Hot Janitor".
  • Idiot Ball:
    • The dick-drawer. They were clever enough to erase the security footage, and carry out the deed on a student-free day when all the teachers would be occupied in meetings. Alex Trimboli said that the vandal was wearing a hoodie — why didn't they wear the hood up, in case someone was looking out a window? Alex says himself that he couldn't have identified the vandal as Dylan (mistakenly or otherwise) if the hood had been up.
    • Mackenzie has time-stamped video evidence of Dylan's alibi, but doesn't use it because it reveals that she's cheating on him. It never occurs to her to edit the footage so it starts when she's walking to the bedroom door? All she needs is twenty seconds of time-stamped footage that clearly identifies her, Dylan, and her bedroom as the location. If she didn't already have the skills to edit the footage (unlikely), about ten minutes of Googling would have given her several youtube instruction videos, and where to find free software she could use to do so. If someone asks her why she's topless from the back? She's already telling Dylan she was changing - just say that she spilled her between-rounds drink on her top, and she was about to change out of view of the camera. Or even simply that it's none of their business.
  • Idiosyncratic Episode Naming: Every episode title is a Double Entendre for the medium of the crime: penises and sex in Season 1; feces in Season 2.
  • I Am Spartacus: During an assembly, Christa and Gabi lead a cry of "I drew the dicks!" among the students.
  • Impostor Forgot One Detail: One of the most important details regarding the crime is that someone tampered with the security footage. Peter discovers that Dylan is utterly Hopeless with Tech beyond the regular teen knowledge of how to use a smartphone.
  • Incredibly Obvious Bug: After Sam and Peter have been banned from shooting on school grounds, Peter attempts to surreptitiously record an interview with Coach Rafferty by putting his cell phone in his breast pocket with the camera peeking over the top of the pocket. Sam claims it looks obvious and everyone will notice, while Peter says it'll be fine. It takes Coach Rafferty less than five seconds to notice Peter's phone and point out that he's being recorded. He's perfectly fine with it and is more than happy to do the interview while being recorded, but he does find the lame deception pretty funny. They later try the same tactic with Vice Principal Keene. He's slower on the uptake, but much less forgiving once he does realize he's being recorded. The boys seem to have learned their lesson in the second season and record St. Bernardine teacher Mrs. Wexler with an audio-only bug that doesn't get noticed.

  • Instant Web Hit:
    • By the fifth episode of Season 1, Peter and Sam have to deal with the fact that American Vandal has gained online attention (by, in-universe, having their episodes of the documentary posted on Vimeo, shared across social media) and that people are submitting theories about who the vandal is. In the opening of Season 2, Peter reveals that the viral explosion of the Vimeo documentary led to Netflix picking up the documentary, and offering a second season and a full production crew (along with adding more production value to the first season for its appearance on Netflix.) Peter and Sam end up selecting St. Bernardine out of hundreds of email requests for the American Vandal team to cover crimes ranging from total hoaxes to an actual murder.

  • In Medias Res:
    • The in-universe documentary American Vandal starts well after the actual vandalism incident, to the point where Dylan has already had the hearing with the school board, been expelled and escorted off the school property. Early episodes are also edited and released before the end of the season, so that assumptions and opinions made in early episodes don't always pan out by the end.

  • Insists on Being Suspected: When Peter insists on being suspected as the one who drew the dicks. The problems come for him and his best friend, Sam, when he insists on treating Sam like a suspect, too, and while both are genuinely innocent, Sam takes issue to how Peter makes him look like a creepy stalker.
  • Jerk Ass Has A Point:
    • The Hanover High teachers' hard-line behavior about the vandalism is Justified. Not only is there considerable humiliation for all the teachers — how long did they have to drive around in those cars until their mechanic had a free slot, or the insurance company paid up for a loan car? The property damage was estimated to be one hundred thousand dollars, for 27 cars. That averages out to about $3700 per car. Given that teacher's salaries are notoriously low, car paint colors can be tricky and expensive to match, and that insurance companies are notorious for dragging their feet about paying out or even denying claims on flimsy excuses (like 'vandalism is not covered by your policy'), the teachers might very well have lost up to a month's salary paying to get their cars fixed.

  • Left Hanging:
    • While we find out if Dylan was the vandal or not, we do not find out with any certainty who actually did it, only an extremely strong suspicion that Christa did it. We also don't find out exactly what Coach Rafferty did that made Christa angry at him.
    • On the topic of Coach Rafferty, it's not made clear what he said to Crista on the field.
    • For Season 2, there is a question about if Kevin made himself shit his pants during the Brownout. Just when you think it might be ignored, Peter asks him directly. And the answer was yes, he did. We're also not given details about Jenna Hawthorne's fate after being convicted.
  • Left It In: In Season 1, Peter's sole devotion to telling the truth means he leaves in plenty of damning clips of people, including those close to him, even after they beg him to cut it out. Peter's In-Universe decision to release episodes before having completed the investigation and documentary means Peter and Sam unknowingly leave in red herrings and events that aren't relevant to the eventual truth of the matter but still have an impact on the rest of their documentary.

    • The study participants asked to imagine acting out the trait, which is a method of self-imagining, were most successful in remembering the personality traits when questioned about them later. In fact, study participants who engaged in self-imagining were three times as likely to successfully remember a personality trait than participants who didn't use any type of memory device or method. The scientists in charge of the study believe that self-imagining could help individuals in rehabilitation programs, as well as anyone with a memory impairment. However, it's likely that the technique could help just about everyone, even if he or she wasn't currently in a rehabilitation program or diagnosed with memory problems. For example, if you wanted to remember where a friend bought a pair of shoes, you might imagine yourself walking into that store to buy the shoes.

  • Manipulative Bastard: Season Two’s Big Bad Grayson Wentz stole an innocent woman's private photos and videos, and used them to catfish vulnerable students and a faculty member of the school that he was expelled from. After collecting their own private media, he blackmailed them into committing his poop pranks. He was so good at faking being an attractive girl that Kevin willingly committed the first incident after Grayson's first target refused.
  • Manipulative Editing: In-universe in Season 1 and 2, differently:
    • Peter acknowledges that he and Sam may be accused of this in Season 1, which results in him accidentally-on-purpose indulging in this trope to make Sam look like a Stalker with a Crush towards Gabi. Sam is furious.
    • The true mastermind of Season 2, Grayson, does this out of necessity to catfish his victims.
  • Meaningful Name:
    • By the end of the series, Peter and Sam theorize that Van Delorey drew the dicks while Christa deleted the tapes. Van Delorey sounds a lot like "Vandalery".
    • It's probably not a coincidence that Christa's last name, Carlyle, has both the word car in itnote , but also a word that sounds like lie.note 
    • In this recap it is taken even further: points out that Christa's last name, when taken with Van's full name and the first part of his last name spell out "CAR VAN-DEL". Also includes a reddit theory which point outs out their names are anagrams for "Car Vandal is Clearly End Theory,” and “Clearly is Car Vandal. End Theory.”
  • Mood Whiplash: In Season 1, Peter makes segments about each person with access to the deleted security footage, their motives for framing Dylan, and their alibis. In an attempt to be impartial he has Sam make a segment about Peter as a suspect. Sam's segment is satirical and suggests Peter is obsessed with cocks and movies, so staged the vandalism so he could make a movie about cocks.

    • In Season 2, Peter and Sam find out the identity of the Turd Burglar (Grayson Wentz) and how he pulled off one of his crimes: he catfished Jenna Hawthorne until he got risque pictures of her, and then blackmailed her into doing the crime. After finding out who the Turd Burglar is, Peter texts him with his real name instead of immediately going to the police, as Sam and Chloe suggest. Unbeknownst to them, the Burglar had blackmailed more victims to commit his other crimes, and he decided to dump everything he had on his victims before the police came. Had the police been called before Grayson knew he was going down, they could have secured the blackmail material without it leaking. No one calls Peter out for this, nor does he even seem to realize he's done anything wrong.
  • N-Word Privileges: DeMarcus admits to changing the way he speaks around his white friends, especially about using the N-word, lest they think they have N-word privileges also.
  • Once More, with Clarity!: Peter and Sam sometimes re-consult old footage to find stuff as they get new pieces of information. The footage is often shown as it was the first time, but with focus on something Peter and Sam, and by extension the audience, missed the first time.
  • Painting the Fourth Wall: When Dylan and his parents are consulting their lawyer over the phone and Peter chimes in, he explains his presence:
    Peter: I'm making a documentary about Dylan's case. Kind of like Serial?
    Lawyer: That's a terrible idea.
  • Paranoia Gambit: Subverted. When Dylan confronts Alex for lying about seeing him draw the dicks, he walks off making him think this trope is going to be in effect... then promptly returns a moment later to enact the "revenge" (ruining his pizza slice and shaking up his soda).
  • The Promposal: Brandon gives one to Gabi at Nana's Party. He shoves her in a pool, then gives her a towel with "prom?" written on it.
  • Put on a Bus: It's more accurate to say that Peter and Sam get on a bus and go to Bellevue, Washington, in Season 2, leaving the rest of the cast behind. They don't even reveal the identity of their cameraman like they did in Season 1.
  • Reaction Shot:
    • In the penultimate episode of Season 1, we see Dylan react when Peter shows him the video Mackenzie sent, but we don't see the video itself. The finale starts with the video, revealing that Mackenzie was cheating on Dylan and he almost caught her.

      Mr. Sissako is both an indispensable political filmmaker and one of the great poets of contemporary cinema. His portrait of life under jihadi rule in northern Mali is brutal and shocking, but also gentle, generous and surprisingly funny. Mr. Sissako does not humanize violent extremists so much as demonstrate that they already belong to the species and reflect part of our common, tragic nature. But his movie also insists that the only effective and ethically serious way to oppose fanaticism is with humanism. Which is to say with irony, with decency and, perhaps above all, with art. (Read the review.)

    • After the show goes viral In-Universe, a lot of the footage starts having serious consequences for everyone. The documentary as a whole puts a lot of people's personal lives out in the open, and not everyone is happy with Peter about that.

      • Mr. Janson and his daughter are harassed by fans of the show for not giving up the answering machine tape. In turn, she contacts Peter and destroys the tape in front of his face to make it clear how cruel the situation has become.
      • When Sam shows Gabi evidence that Brandon has cheated on her with Sara and makes a joke about it, she's not endeared to him. She's pissed that he would take such an awful situation and try using it for humour.
      • But when Sam and Gabi make up at the prom after-party, the camera pans past Brandon and his date... who isn't Gabi. She dumped his ass!

    • Sara Pearson has hooked up with a lot of people, including the likes of Pat Micklewaite.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Peter is on the receiving end of a few thanks to the documentary.
    • Sara gives one to Peter in the final episode about invading her privacy, exposing her sexual history and leaving her open to slut-shaming, especially since it turns out to have nothing to do with Dylan's innocence or anyone else's guilt. Peter leaves it in the finished episode as a way of 城市住房制度长效机制平稳起步, as well as admitting in voiceover that she was absolutely right.
    • Mackenzie gives one to Peter when he accuses her of drawing the dicks with Dylan. It's a lot harder to feel sympathy for her, however, considering it's triggered by her realizing that in order to clear her name, she's going to have to reveal the Twitch footage that not only proves both her and Dylan's alibis, but that she's been cheating on him. Also exposing that she stood by and let her boyfriend of four years be expelled from school, have his reputation ruined and be left open to felony criminal charges and possible jail time or ruinous debt for his low-income family, rather than admit to it.
    Mackenzie: It's so easy for you to sit there behind that stupid camera and make accusations about people you don't even know. And look I am sorry if we ignored you before, but if this is what you're really like then I guess there's a reason everyone thought you were such a loser. And now everyone's secrets are out, throughout the entire school all because - what? You - you what? You had to make the best movie? You know what, when this is all over, so are you, okay? Because you are nobody and you're just mad about it.

    Ms. Shapiro: ...But, let's be honest with each other Dylan, you have terrorized me for four years in and out of this classroom. And your brother, four before that. So, yes, I'm sorry I suspected you vandalized the cars; I was wrong about that. But I don't believe I was wrong about you.
  • Restrained Revenge: When Dylan confronts Alex for lying about seeing him drawing the dicks (which contributed to the expulsion), he says he'll get even one day. After a beat he destroys Alex's lunch and leaves. It's clear Alex thinks he got off easy.
  • Retcon: Despite being a supposedly amateur production uploaded to Vimeo, the first season of the show has a number of elements that would be beyond Peter and Sam's budget and abilities, including footage from drone cameras and the very professional opening credits. The second season explains that those elements were added by Netflix, who acquired the documentary for mass distribution and re-edited it.
  • Reveal Shot: Minor case early on: Dylan's brother is talking about how he used to terrorize Shapiro's class and warned Dylan not to take the class because Shapiro will have it out for him. He says Dylan didn't listen, because he's an idiot. Then a camera pan out reveals Dylan was there right next to him (facing him too) the whole time.
  • Rewatch Bonus: Watch the Season 1 episode "A Limp Alibi" when Peter asks Mackenzie if there's any proof that puts Dylan at her house during the time in question. It's very quick, but she looks straight at the computer screen, swallows nervously, and makes her face absolutely blank before answering negatively.
    • If you look closely throughout the first season at the background footage as well as the many students interviewed, every student shown is taller, shorter, fatter, thinner or has a very different hairstyle than Dylan. It's why it's believable that Alex Trimboli might have been genuinely mistaken about his identification of Dylan; the only person in the case who could believably pass as Dylan from behind (Van Delorey) isn't a student at Hanover High, and Alex hasn't seen him more than one or twicenote  in the last six months.
  • Right for the Wrong Reasons:
    • Ms. Shapiro doesn't waste a second after her apologizing to Dylan for accusing him of drawing the dicks to point out that she may have chosen the wrong crime but her main assessment of him as a hooligan still stands.
    • Season 2, Tanner accuses Kevin of committing the Brownout. He turns out to be right, but not for the right reason: Kevin wasn't trying to break up Tanner and Chloe by calling the police — an act committed by Lou, for a different reason — but he was cajoled into getting revenge on someone else by going through with the prank.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge:
    • Peter believes that this could be Mackenzie's motivation for drawing the dicks. Coach Rafferty dated her mom, ruining her parents' chance of getting back together. She in turn files a complaint against him, which is dismissed. So she trashes his office, which he cleans up before anyone finds out. So she draws the dicks. Turns out to be Right for the Wrong Reasons. Mackenzie may still be responsible for the office-trashing, given the "stick your dick somewhere else" message on his whiteboard, but Christa is likely responsible for the complaint and the dick-drawing as a continued vendetta against him for humiliating her during football tryouts. There's also a fan theory that the complaint was because Coach Rafferty sexually harassed (or worse) a student, potentially Sara Pearson, and the trashing/"stick your dick somewhere else" were a reaction to the school sweeping it under the rug, which would get Mackenzie off the hook for that as well.

    • Also in Season 2, DeMarcus, although unlike Kevin, he's extremely popular with his funny stunts. However, he feels that no-one genuinely likes him and all are just interested in him because of his popularity.
  • Sadistic Teacher: Coach Rafferty is this to Christa, at the very least, putting her in a tackle drill when she tried out for the position of kicker on the football team in retaliation for a walkout. This may have been her motivation to draw the dicks.
  • Serious Business: Part of the series appeal is that it takes everything completely seriously — the dicks, the poop, whether Alex got a handjob from Sara, off-campus lunches, the use of periods after emojis or the number of Ys in the word "hey" — anything and everything is treated as an important factor in the case.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: Mrs. Shapiro is this to Dylan. Pat Micklewaite becomes one to Peter as he begins to find more and more evidence of him being more popular than he is.
  • Shout-Out:

Played with to some degree, as she's revealed to actually have been interested in joining football as a kicker, and wasn't just trying to prove a point about gender equality.
  • Spotting the Thread: Peter notices that the dicks Dylan drew on the whiteboards have a different design (ball hairs, no mushroom head) than those on the cars. It's the first piece of evidence that convinces him that Dylan may not be responsible.
  • Stacy's Mom: Sam does a whole side segment on the attractive moms of students at Hanover High. One of them is Peter's mom, which Peter is...not pleased by.
  • Stealth Pun: Season Two includes minor character Carla Dickey in a clever nod to Season One’s main plot.
  • Stern Teacher: Mrs. Shapiro toes the line between this and Sadist Teacher, and it's really dependent on who's testimonies you believe. She may have pressured a girl into accusing another student of cheating because Shapiro didn't like him. She also might have told Keene to get rid of off-campus lunches so that when she brought them back she would be seen as the good guy. But she is also very fast to brush Dylan off because of his actions and lies to help him get expelled and only gave a half hearted apology to him after his exoneration, and she begins acting just as cold to Peter and Sam as the documentary goes on.
