Nothing to do with 2 days anymore AND not much of a mystery
This documentary series badly needs to be renamed.
Nova, Horizon and Panorama could all show almost any of these episodes
although this show does focus almost exclusively on murder cases that
were unclear, at least initially, as to the culprit and/or have questionable witness, police or prosecutors.
I find many of these cases to be frustrating, at best. Innocent people are harmed and never get justice, and least not swiftly and, to my way of thinking, that isn't actually just.
Sadly, most of these cases highlight the ignorance, stupidity, biases and incompetence surrounding all aspects of those participating in the legal system. It boggles the mind how often those in charge make life-altering decisions on cases on a whim, or from bias, incompetence or laziness, and then stand behind those bad choices come hell or high water. Often committing crimes beyond perjury to cover up their errors, often aiding criminals and often causing great harm to innocents.
All in all its a dose of reality for those who see the world through rose coloured glasses.
