suomi February 1, 2020 Share February 1, 2020 All 5 episodes debut on Amazon Prime on Friday, January 31. I've just finished episode 2 and what I find remarkable thus far is the female-centric format. The social constructs of the late 60s and 70s are front and center. In-depth stories about the victims, those who died and those who survived, are front and center. I realized after a few minutes into the first episode that the only voices I was hearing were female voices. Men's voices are heard eventually but they are the minority of what is presented. The former girlfriend at the center of this documentary has been shamed from every quarter over the years. This documentary goes a long way in providing pertinent background to the insight that she fell in love with a man who seemed too good to be true but she fell for him anyway - and then that relationship fell apart. He presented as ideal relationship material and I can't see faulting her for being deceived. She stayed too long - but we didn't have the tools and the information then that we have today. The average person knew very little about mental disorders and very little about how often the disordered walk among us. She and her daughter, who of course is now an adult, are well-spoken and present their history in ways that are easy to understand. 1 2 Link to comment
