Watching the Outsider on HBO. They released the 1st 2 episodes at once, they were very good...I was hooked.

However, it looks like it's about to take a change I'm not sure I'm going to like...looks like it might be a Super Natural thing.

Navy Kent State

This just now hit Netflix

I am on episode 2. it is just so sad. I believe he got what he deserved for murdering people and am in no way justifying ANYTHING he did. But, he wasn't an intelligent guy at all. He seemed "simple" and like he never matured. It is just really freaking sad.

Also seems weird to say it, but he actually was a serial killer.
If you believe that he did kill the 2 guys he was acquitted of, in addition to the one he was convicted of, and then the attempted murder of Bradley, his "friend", who strangely survived.
Makes you wonder if he killed anyone else, we don't know about.

I watched all 3 episodes, but I found the production of this entire documentary lacking. I understand what they tried to to by jumping back and forth, but most times they just left me scratching my head, because the way they tied it back together was not very tactful, kinda clunky.

I watched through because I wanted to see something at the end that gave pause to think. I was left thinking alright...thinking how weak they just offered what could have been a very compelling story, but it was poorly told.

the fact that they didn't over produce it and just let the conversations and people tell the story is why I enjoyed it. I don't like over theatrics or trying to make it more than what it is. That was a huge piece of time for NFL fans and something that was well worth watching. His mother was a complete scumbag, and there were things about his upbringing I didnt even know about. I like to follow high profile cases to see things like what makes them tick, and I didnt know a lot of this stuff.

Yeah, docudramas can over do it sometimes, but I felt the story we saw could have been 2 hours, not almost 3 and a half.

Well, season 7 of Ray Donovan is in the books and it's still chugging along.

I think they've gone 2 seasons too long with the story, but looks like they'll do one more.

I'll watch it. I like it.
