VERY INTERESTING! Shows each side of the cases... Both the defense and the prosecution.
23 February 2019 | by wadegunterSee all my reviews

I've ALWAYS been fascinated with true crime and what life would be like to be in prison or death row. This show combines it all. It tells the story of the crime, gives the death row inmate's take, and then let's the prosecution and defense explain their sides. I hear other reviews on here complaining that Susan Sarandon is narrating it. I couldn't care less. Kermit the Frog could narrate it. I'm interested in the substance of the narration, not the voice. This show is extremely factual. It let's you decide what side you're on.
