A Confusing Start, But An Important Topic
16 December 2018 | by kallan-771-796749See all my reviews

Overall, I really enjoyed this series, which takes a look at still more innocent people being locked away for decades of their lives.

But there are a couple points of confusion: Going into the second episode, I felt like I just wasn't getting enough details. You will eventually get caught up on (most of) those missing details to form a whole picture, so don't let that stop you from watching. My other problem, as another reviewer stated, is that there are so many people in the series. It can start becoming difficult to keep up with who did what, and to which case that person is connected,

Still, I do recommend it. It's an important topic that needs to be discussed more. I would like to purchase John Grisham's book now. Hopefully it will answer some of the questions I still have.
