What a Waste of Time!
15 November 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I hadn't heard anything about this series because there's very little programming on NBC by 2017 that is worth watching anymore, in my opinion. NBC has trying to form public opinion on social matters for more than 15 years. And this mini-series is just another example of this. NBC and Hollywood have been engaged in the war on law enforcement for a long time. And this is just another example of that. I lost interest in Law & Order after Lenny (Jerry Orbach) died and Mike Logan (Chris Noth) left the show. After they were gone. The show moved far to the left with the underlying message in the show. But when I heard Anthony Edwards was playing a roll I decided to give it a try. This is an event that actually happened. You'd like to think they would give us just the facts. Apparently NOT. For some reason, they decided to assassinate the character of the parents. Which was part of the defense for these two sick men who decided that the only way they could deal with the life they were living at home, was to slaughter their parents. It's very difficult watching the story as these evil men are portrayed helpless young men whose only alternative was to murder their parents. Listening to much of the dialogue had me wanting to throw things at my television. The only thing I believe to be true are the things said in the epilogue. Where we find out the lawyer who tried to spring these two very dangerous young quit the law for a while after this trial. It's hard to know who is crazier. The defendants or the lawyer. Lastly, eight episodes in way too much. This story could have been told in two maybe three episodes.
