Don't Waste Your Money!
Even if you like True Crime, even if you like LA scandals, heck even if you like James Ellroy's books do not waste your money. This was awful, really horribly bad. It was not good True Crime, it was not good LA scandal it wasn't even a good example of James Ellroy's writing. It was nothing but self aggrandizement delivered in the most supercilious and smug tone possible. I suppose Mr. Ellroy thought he was acting and trying to give the show a Raymond Chandler noir feel but he really needs acting lessons and his self written script could have done with out the multiple paeans of praise he gave to his own talents. I guess that is what I can really point out about this series, no matter who died or how, it wasn't about the victim or the killer it was all about Ellroy.
But one of the most painful, self-indulgent shows I have ever watched. He is a wonderful writer, but his voice (cadence, tone, etc.) is not made for television - like nails on a chalkboard...
Love Ellroy, love his work. This show's gonna be legendary.
