Accounts of homicides (some of them well known - also featured by other crime shows) standing out by the storytelling/personal perspectives.
it differs greatly from 'i survived' but it definitely is on the same level of heart wrenching intensity...
- exactly because it is true to the subject matter, because it doesn't distort or sensationalise. music is not abused and no unnecessary re enactments. in fact, i just finished the last episode and seem to remember only in some replications of some moments.
(hate reenactments since they usually show no additional dimension and are time fillers - in my opinion totally misplaced in crime reporting or documentaries)
i find this was very respectful to the victims - on both sides - and makes you see and feel the consequences of such acts.. all these people are so incredibly strong for being what they are today.. and how they cope...
and it really makes you question your own connections to close ones.
i immediately texted my sister i rarely see after episode 5
