A historical fiction piece, the show takes the basic story of Manson and embellishes it with added fictional characters and story lines. It does a nice job of creating the cultural atmosphere of the 60’s that surrounds the events. Other than that, though, the characters didn’t pull me in. I am intrigued that the creators already have six seasons of this show planned out, which means they have a definite idea of where it is heading. Even so, it just wasn’t all that interesting to watch. I wouldn’t say it’s a pass, but I only moderately recommend checking it out.
