I love Werner Herzog's documentaries... and this doesn't disappoint - he is such a fantastic interviewer and film maker. A thoughtful exploration of the lives of those who end up on death row and the impact that they have had on their family and victims families.

Worst Interviewer you’ll ever watch
Werner Herzog might be the worst interviwer you’ll ever see. Doesn’t let people answer questions, leads them to answers & seems to what to share his travel stories with the serial killer. So so bad

Episode is cut short before the end
Was enjoying this but it stopped suddenly, the last segment of the episode is missing. Very frustrating!

Darlie Routier is 100% guilty of murdering her kids and she thought gentle attitude and voice would get her off the hook. It’s amazing how she thinks she can fool everyone! She thinks she’s the prettiest gal on the block with her hair and all the makeup bought off the commissary. RIP Devon & Damon
