Overly long, yet painfully fails to answer many key questions. FFW button is needed
16 November 2020 | by Xavier_StoneSee all my reviews

First of all with 8 episodes it looks like it's going to be another detailed and well thought out documentary with lots of amazing facts discovered. But it's not. From the first episode we can guess the outcome so it's not all that engaging.

There are plenty of shady details with the Boston Police and the corruption but it seems as though there is quite a bit of needless information. Having his mother in interviews over and over serves no purpose at all as she was a self admitted crack head at the time and had zero input. Episode 7 deals with a District Attorney race that again serves no purpose to the story as the winner will not be involved with the case.

This should have been 3 episodes. Too much filler and regurgitating details over and over. Plenty of questions that were strangely overlooked. A witness who is related to the detective is buying stuff at 3am? Sean Ellis is buying diapers with 2 of his friends at 3am? The details of the guns being found, but lets not ask those questions and instead focus on Sean meeting long lost friends and having BBQ's.
