So serial killers, they're pretty hot, right?

How about NO – the general criteria for aesthetic attractiveness should definitely NOT be a factor when it comes to observing a serial killer who has murdered 30 women, but it seems that some people are marvelling at the 'good looks' of one in particular. 

Since Conversations With a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes landed on Netflix, thew internet has hosted many tributes to the murderer's 'good looks,' and romanticising his life. 

Netflix has stepped up and pointed out that the deceased Bundy probably isn't the ideal object of affection for internet 'stans.' 

'I've seen a lot of talk about Ted Bundy’s alleged hotness and would like to gently remind everyone that there are literally THOUSANDS of hot men on the service — almost all of whom are not convicted serial murderers,' they tweeted.

However, some have replied that it's fine to consider Bundy objectively good looking, as long as that opinion does not take from the seriousness of his crimes: 'He can be hot and also terrible. Not that I think it's a fun discussion point,' said one. 

Others blame the media that millennials grew up absorbing, pointing to Twilight as a prime sexy/murderer dichotomy.

'You’re literally tweeting to a generation that had vampires sexualized to them. Who’s really surprised here?' said another 

Netflix's You starring Penn Badgely of Gossip Girl fame provoked a similar online reaction. 

The rise of true crimes podcasts and series' has escalated over the last five years, being much more popular with women than men. 

In fact, stats indicate that despite fifty-six percent of podcast listeners being male, it's the ladies who contribute the most to True Crime listeners. 

Twitter study of True Crime listeners showed that bar one podcast in the genre, women largely dominated the sector.

The rise of true crimes podcasts and series have grown over the last five years, being much more popular with women than men. 

In fact, stats indicate that despite fifty-six percent of podcast listeners being male, it's the ladies who contribute the most to True Crime listeners. 

A Twitter study of True Crime listeners showed that bar one podcast in the genre, women largely dominated the sector.

But it comes as no surprise as there's a whole section of Tumblr dedicated to it. 

That's why we can't WAIT for Netflix's new documentary on serial killer, Ted Bundy.

We will be treated to a four-part series investigating his life, 30 years after his execution for his crimes.

Netflix will be releasing "Conversation with A Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes" in the US on January 24, 2019 – the dates for IE/UK have yet to be announced.

Taking to Twitter, the streaming giant promised that the new series would take us into "the mind of the infamous serial killer".  

The look into Ted's crimes and the media frenzy that followed his trial and sentencing was directed by Joe Berlinger.

The new Netflix release will include previously unheard audio interviews with Ted when he was on death row in Florida.

In the 1970s, the serial killer wrecked havoc in the US and although he finally admitted to killing 30 people, the number of victims unknown and is suspected to be higher.

We will definitely be watching this one.
