I read Beth Macy’s book for a class and started watching this show because of how good the book is. I think each episode is better and better. The Sacklers are like superhero villains but perhaps they are in real life…

I am really enjoying this, but can’t always tell what is real and what is docudrama. Which sent me to the documentary The Crime of the Century. But now I am back watching this because of those dramatic aspects - it really drives home well the human casualties in this epidemic. Not the same as reading the news.
