    [This review only refers to the first episode.] This documentary series is being marketed as a sports documentary series, and I couldn't care less about sports. I would never watch an actual sports documentary, but it would be more accurate to call this a true crime documentary. The first episode was so gripping that I might have to binge-watch the rest of the series.

I hardly ever watch documentaries because listening to the news is depressing enough, but I'm glad I started this one. Expand

    Timely and haunting, if far from perfect. ... Although he was still in jail when Kondelis began filming, it’s the back half of Outcry, which follows him post-incarceration, that feels most profound.

    We wish that the first episode went into more details about the boys’ accusations and the trial that ensued. Otherwise, it was a lot of the same song being sung, that this kid couldn’t possibly have done what he was accused of doing; it made for a particularly slow-moving first episode.

    A viewer might be tempted to search online and learn the eventual outcome, which only came late last year, but I recommend watching all five parts to get the full emotional effect of a seven-year journey from innocence to guilt and back again.
