Now I personally was not aware of the story of not just the rehab center that is in the middle of this docu series but also the man responsible for it. The 80s may seem like a strange time or even a different planet at times, especially if one has not lived through certain things, but that is true for anything foreign to us or our way of life. And by "us" I mean the viewer in general and what he or she has gone through in life and how it affects the experience of watching this.
The docu series does try to stay as neutral as possible. Letting people speak that defend the man and his project, but also giving us the views of people who are or were not so enamoured by him and whatever he achieved. Or I guess by his methods would be more true. Good intentions paving the road and all that ... and of course the downfalls of becoming famous - or infamous. Personal likings and the gravity of machism culture mixed with drugs and other "highs".
The show may begin slow but takes up speed. Still 5 episodes of this may not be what most/some want to endure. That will be up to you to decide. Definitely worth watching if you like these types of shows
