There has been a LOT of buzz about this person. Even the evening news. I haven't gotten into all the specifics, but definitely intend to.

There is one reality show from Alaska and the father and his sons filed fraudulent papers for the yearly grant money from the oil fields. They got caught. Now have to pay back huge amounts and are banned from every collecting another check. They claimed they were legal residents for a FULL year. 365 days total. They weren't.

Crime does NOT pay in this case.

Can't remember the name of the show. Sorry.

Addie, this 10 episode documentary is riveting and took many years to make. I'm on episode six now and I've changed my mind about his innocence something like 4 times. I've served so many times as a juror I'm trying to keep an open mind till the end. I hope there's a way you can watch it.

What little tidbits I have paid attention to on the news, make me inclined to think he is guilty. He may have been proven innocent of the original crime he was imprisoned for, but his background does not sound very savory to me.

Why would you be inclined to think he is guilty without knowing the facts, only tidbits? Because of his bizarre family and background? That shouldn't equal guilty in the mind of anyone. I'm not looking for a debate, but only learning all the facts that were recorded, all US citizens have that right.

I would like to say that I finished the full second season of Mozart in the Jungle.

I thought the second season was just as good as the first one.

I am not so sure it was worthy of the Golden Globe though, but I got to see the first two out of two seasons for free.

I really did like the improved opening and closing credits for this show for season two.

Is anyone planning on watching "Mercy Street"? It's a Civil War drama starting on PBS tonight about a hotel in Alexandria, VA, turned into a Union Army hospital. I'm fascinated by history, and the history of medicine in particular. Looking forward to it.
