Should have been a 2 hour Biography!
30 July 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is a fairly good biography of Jeffrey Dahmer but it crams so much information into a short 50 minutes that it would have been much better if it had been a 2 hour program. Being an episode of Biography the show focuses more on Dahmer when he was growing up and doesn't give much detail about his crimes and seems to just breeze over them near the end. It does contain clips of Dahmer in court, interviews with Lionel Dahmer, former classmates and a very brief clip of Dahmer standing in another courtroom that i've never seen before. If you want to see a more detailed account about the crimes of Jeffrey Dahmer you should watch the other A&E program "American Justice: The Mystery of the Serial Killer", which still airs on A&E every now and then.
