If you were footloose and anywhere near LA in the late '70s and early '80s, there was a chance your life could have been cut short by any number of serial killers claiming victims at an alarming rate.

One such killer had a team of accomplices.

Over 100 victims.

ABC News does a remarkable job of mapping out the killers' domain while keeping focus on the detectives doing the heavy lifting of police work without the aid of high-tech assistance.

The real detectives tell the story from their point of view.

This bingeable police procedural documentary series manages to be tasteful in the face of utter horror.

Still shocking.

Not Rated. Six 45 min. Episodes.

5 Stars
