The Best Episode so Far!!!
9 February 2018 | by BatmanFunReviews2018See all my reviews

With the ATF siege in motion, assault vehicles storm the Mount Carmel compound and exchange gunfire, which begins a 51-day standoff. With an Amazing Opening Scene and terrific full of suspense moments Waco's 3rd Episode 'Operation Showtime' takes the Mini Series in an even higher scale. The conversations about God and what happened in Mount Carmel are intense and the first talk between Kitch's character and Shannon's character is even more epic than i was expecting plus the drama and the violance feel real. I don't know how faithful the Series is on the Story itself but so far this Show has captivated me alot and it all has to do with the Cast and Crew who do an incredible job with the Source Material (10/10)
