Review this tv show
In “Confession Killer,” Kenner methodically lays out the faults in the system, taking no prisoners. He leaves viewers with a very clear message: while Lucas was a despicable human being, there’s true culpability found in the officers who so wanted to mark cases closed that they ignored the very real evidence to the contrary.
At the beginning of the series, it’s unclear what story “The Confession Killer” can possibly be telling that requires five episodes and as many hours. Lucas isn’t that interesting. But as it turns out, the story is not just about crime, truth and justice, but journalism, the politics of law enforcement, celebrity culture, and the gift that was represented by Henry Lee Lucas—not just to the police and media, but to all the killers of all those women who were given someone else to take the blame.
