Differentiates Itself

This show is cool because it focuses heavily on the way the US criminal justice system operates with each case. The host is a veteran court reporter who knows what he’s talking about, and he’s has a genial demeanor that I really enjoyed.

Each season is very different, going over every aspect of each case in lots of detail and discussing potential “breakdowns” in the justice system, which apply regardless of whether the defendant is guilty or innocent.

This is a different kind of true crime show, and it’s very well done.
