Riveting from start to finish

It’s riveting and is so much more than just true crime, and it’s certainly not glorifying drug trafficking. It’s honest, heartbreaking, shockingly brave, nuanced, human, emotional, WILD, and surprisingly warm at times. The pacing of the episodes and the way Peter & Jay & Val & Viv tell stories is masterful. 10/10
