LA: City of Ellroy's Slurred Delivery
2 March 2019 | by blademan-95603See all my reviews

Ellroy's affected manner as presenter in this series is so irksome and distracting (he actually seems to be miming a stroke victim or some poor backward possibly drunk} slurred speech soul reading from cue cards ) as to ruin whatever content that may otherwise have contained some potential interest.
