Storyline

When a controversial guru builds an utopian city in the Oregon desert, it causes a massive conflict with local ranchers. This docuseries chronicles the conflict, which leads to the first bioterror attack in the United States and a massive case of illegal wiretapping. It is a pivotal, but largely forgotten, time in American cultural history that tested the country's tolerance for the separation of church and state. Written by Jwelch5742

Yes, watch it. But dont start it at night or you will need a lot of coffee at work the next day
19 March 2018 | by estucofenSee all my reviews

I have to say, Netflix pretty much ruins everything that it put his hands on it when talking about fiction tv shows. Now, on documentaries, I take my hat off. This one really nailed it and this is why you should watch it:

  • The story is so bizarre and unbelievable that is no other way to show it than with a documentary
  • This must be one of the most unbiased documentaries ever. You are trying to figure out whos the bad guy through the entire series.
  • The amount of real life footage gather here is just breathtaking, almost like "Capturing the Friedmans"
  • You will find yourself saying "WHAT? NO WAY" every 15 minutes.
