Very informative
7 July 2019 | by quemadreSee all my reviews

Most crime TV shows (fiction and non-fiction) rely on forensic science to convict someone of a crime. Viewers are left to assume that the science behind these convictions are fail safe and forensic science will always reveal the Truth.

This show, however, puts forensic science as the subject of critical analysis. What are the limitations to forensic science? How does the positionality of the reader (e.g. prosecutor, judge, defense attorney, etc.) impact the way forensic evidence is interpreted and portrayed? What happens when forensic evidence is misused or conflated? I think this show does a solid job at addressing the complexities of forensic evidence.

I do agree with another reviewer that the show doesn't really get into all the other evidence in any given case, but they do provide context from other experts and investigators that were involved in each of these accounts. At the same time, that's not the show's goal. The show is meant to highlight a forensic science method through a case study and address how it was misused in trial.
