"All the evidence says this guy did it, but he says he didn't, but most people think he did. And because we're interviewing him, it's obvious he isn't in prison for it. Fin." Interesting story, but I'm honestly not sure what the point of the documentary was. It didn't feel unbiased, but I also don't know what point I was meant to walk away with. It's more like a case review than a narrative, which doesn't suit documentary storytelling very well unless both sides are equally compelling.

Not bad, but three episodes had maybe an episode and a half worth of story. This is like what some of the news shows are doing lately, stretching an hour story into two hours. I would have rated it higher, but there was too much fluff and filler for me.

Just a botched murder case, no twists or turns.

It was a little too narrowly focused for my liking.
