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.
Interesting subject matter on how evangelicals are majorly influencing US and world politics however I feel the makers should've released this as a feature length documentary. As a docuseries it was way too long and too slow. Most of the material in the series did not really add any value from a learning perspective in my opinion and could have been cut out completely. The show starts to pick up pace midway through the second, right to the end of the third episodes but then slows down again right to the very end. I feel the show didn't uncover really juicy or politically shocking information considering it's trying to come off as a 'secret society' / 'world conspiracy' docuseries, which is disappointing. Also the case the makers were trying to make where they were likening or connecting The Family's activities with that of Nazis failed miserably in my opinion. As a Alex Gibney produced documentary I had high expectations but sadly it did not do it for me.
