I'll Be Gone in the Dark: Murder Habit

Maybe I should have made a full-season thread, since this is a documentary mini-series and book adaptation, so, the details of McNamara's death and the killer's identity are only a web-search & mouse-click away? I haven't read McNamara's book, and didn't follow the news of the killer's arrest in much detail beyond being glad that he was finally caught, so, I decided to make the post for just the episode itself.

Anyway, I thought this was very well done, and I'll be watching to the end.

I haven't watched this yet, but I did read the book, and although it's very definitely in the mode of an unfinished book, especially near the end, it was still very compelling, chock full of curious and scary little details. (For example, in one of the communities that the GSK operated in, some of the local teenage boys apparently had the "hobby" of breaking and entering houses at random--not to steal anything or assault anyone, but just out of boredom.)

I watched this the other night and it's really good. Highly recommended if you're a murderino.
