Storyline

For centuries, brilliant minds have changed and shaped the world. But when genius is used for evil, the results are some of the most twisted, inventive, and outrageous crimes in history. This is a show about how bad things work not things working badly; the inner-workings and process behind all the stuff that's against the law. Think of it as Modern Marvels for black market, smuggling, drugs, gangs, and other crime and vice.

Absolutely had no idea.....
15 May 2018 | by treydrierSee all my reviews

I remember when this happened in 2003 but never realized what had conspired and who was responsible. This is how all docuseries should be...4 episodes, instead of dragging it out for 10 hours. There are so many twists and turns that you are left thinking "this can't be true", but it is.

Imagine having a bomb locked around your neck and the cops trapping you and there is no way it can be removed. This shows depicts just how evil and deranged people can be. Something that I continue to think about is how this poor guy goes into the bank with a collar bomb around his neck and yet he grabs a free sucker in a bowl on bank counter, unwraps it and puts it in his mouth and walks out of the bank like he's strolling in the park. Like nothing was wrong. Weird. Anyway, it's bizarre and disturbing but well done and worth the time to watch it.
