Henry Lee Lucas was known as America's most prolific serial killer, admitting to hundreds of murders, but, as DNA results contradict his confessions, will they expose the biggest criminal justice hoax in U.S. history?
A critical look into some true crime cases where American law enforcement made up for lack of actual physical evidence by using devious psychological tactics during interrogation in order to extract confessions from naive suspects.
The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann takes a detailed look at the disappearance of three-year-old Madeleine McCann, who vanished from the seaside resort of Praia de Luz in Portugal, while on holiday with her family.
The twisting, turning, stranger-than-fiction true story of the Brobergs, a naive, church-going Idaho family that fell under the spell of a sociopathic neighbor with designs on their twelve-year-old daughter.
Painfully slow with lot of useless scenes and tiring dramatisation
I gave this series 1-star after watching an episode and half.
After a friend convinced me to watch the remaining, I increased the rating to 5-stars.
Here is my final review of this series after watching all the episodes
A very important topic that is a must to discuss.
The makers kept as factual as possible. Some key players did not want to be interviewed on camera so their side of the story can only be seen from their past interviews.
The story goes back and forth between the two cases initially which did not help the narrative. It added so many characters in the mix that it made everything confusing and painfully slow.
Wish the editor had done a better job at presenting the story.
Below is the review that I wrote initially after watching only first episode.
I started watching this series because the trailer looked interesting. 30 minutes into the first episode and I was so disappointed.
1. It is painfully slow.
2. The names of so many characters are thrown in a span of 5-7 minutes.
district attorney, asst district attorney, mother, aunt, friend, reporter, etc. etc. etc. so confusing.
3. The dramatization with songs and slow moving story are terrible.
First episode could have been 15 mins instead of 45 mins
By the second episode I was so tired of it that I decided to just read about the true events instead of watching this series... Can't bear the pain of watching this series.
To the makers of this : Learn from forensic files how to keep the script tight and to the point.
