I was hoping this was going to be a slightly fictionalized, fast-paced dramatization, but no, it's a boring - sorry - documentary that plays out in the '50s and '70s, ugh. Like many books you read, there's just way too much spurious, expository detail included. For me - please get to the point. As such I didn't even make it through ep 1. But see, everyone, EVERYONE knows by now that the federal govt is all about abuse of power instead of governing, that's why there is scandal after scandal after scandal. Now in the early '70s we as a people weren't so jaded yet. But since then we've seen horrible abuses by the DoD, EPA, FBI, CIA, and NSA, as well as the Office of the President with Nixon's Watergate, Reagan's Iran-Contra scandal, and the impeachment of Bill Clinton. So when "Wormwood" is revealing that the CIA did this horrible thing, my response is "tell me something I don't know." It's par for the course. Another decade, another scandal that's made public. Netflix shouldn't have commissioned this, it clearly should've been a PBS documentary.
