Not as interesting or engrossing as American Crime Story, but still pretty well done. You can definitely tell the tone of show is presented from Edie Falco's character's POV as the show presents the Menendez boys as worthy of sympathy.


This mini-series has promise, True Crime is the newest addition to the popular and long running franchise LAW & ORDER. Hoping to pick up the audience that applauded and rewarded the series on the OJ murders and capitalizing on their own format this should go well. Edie Falco is just the coup de grace. After only seeing the first episode I predict this will settle in as an 8 (great) out of 10, I'm starting it off with a 7 (good) for their first episode.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me πŸ‘‹ I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter πŸ™ˆ

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
