| It was quite good
Not being American I'm unfamiliar with the opening story being told by this show, but the way in which the story has been told was enough to make me break out Google and do a little research.

As is all too often the case with these sorts of 'wrongful outcome' criminal investigation shows it seems to skew very much in favour of the defence side of things, that in and of itself is fine so long as there is some objectivity coming up.

It appears there are three episodes dedicated to this story, the next one being around the trail, and the last one titled 'the woman' must be about the woman at the centre of the case herself. I'm optimistic that each will give a more full account of the events leading up to, including and after the murder/s.

Its pretty well put together with good production. The use of historical footage is again pretty typical for this sort of show, but I'm hoping those who are 'investigating' will be more evident as will their methodology.

There is certainly enough so far to garner interest and further watching.
