Good episode based on a real case
13 June 2013 | by EIABoySee all my reviews

I found this episode well thought out when I first saw it and in a few subsequent viewings.

It was just recently that I found this episode VERY closely follows the facts of a real case profiled by the Investigate Discovery show Solved, Season 3, Episode 4, "The Bully" (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1693511/)

They do depart from the "real" story in a few ways but it is a fairly faithful portrayal of a real case with really messed up individuals and I believe the real and make believe versions both do a very good job of painting the picture and revealing the depths of human depravity and just how dysfunctional and delusional some people really are..
