Fascinating
3 February 2013 | by warbi_2000See all my reviews

Okay, okay, here is my disclaimer: I am a hardcore true crime junkie. I believe that even someone who is not as "into" true crime as I am will enjoy this show. Each episode is a triptych of women murderers with a certain theme (sometimes a little tenuous). I never realized that there were so many women killers. The series covers murderers from all the way back to the 1700s up to the present. One thing that I wish would be done differently would be to include non-Western murders, but this could be because it is hard to get medical records, coroner reports, eyewitness accounts, interviews, etc... The show is as thorough as it can be. Truly one of my very favorite shows.
