Starting the Series Just Right
25 September 2018 | by louie_pulancoSee all my reviews

This episode explored how the two brothers became primary suspects in the killings of the Menendez couple. It gradually shows the build up of evidence which is a good start since these sightings of the detectives, their collection and interviews will be important later on whether or not they will be acquitted or not. The storyline, chronology of events and script are just right to explore all of these.

As per the acting, Eddie Falco and the detectives were superb. But other actors seemed to lack the right gestures to sway my emotions.

Cinematography is just right, nothing superb.

Looking forward to other episodes as I am young for my age and not living in the USA to know this case. That's why I'm thrilled for the development of the case and its results based on this series.
