This is a great series. Especially when the actual women participate in recreating their story. A handful take responsibility and some I feel sympathy for. Some are evil but most have a haunting feeling of, "But for the grace of God: there go I." Peggy in the first story still haunts me as well as the woman who killed her two twin boys while on booze and prozac. I believe that women (especially women) can have a productive and positive life behind bars. For many of them it's a safer life than they were leading out in the world. I wish several of them the absolute best and of course, some can rot because they are so evil and they refuse any responsibility in their crimes. Peggy, I hope you can forgive yourself and move on. There is something special about her to me.

I have watched many shows on crime and people who have committed crimes. This is by far at or close to the very best!

An interesting look at our prison system revealing how it works and doesn't work. Some of these women are right where they belong, with some still not taking responsibility for their actions. I can't help feeling that some of them were convicted on very scanty evidence and might actually be innocent. I see no shortage of women whose sentences are way too long. Sometimes you can lose your freedom way too easily in the land of the free.

This way okay, but a bit redundant in spots. It was like they had to keep introducing the same thing to fill up the time. If you like this subject matter, you will probably like this film. It wasn't terrible but really just not for me. Sometimes you need to try out a film just to see if you like it even if your not sure it is your type of film just by looking at the title.

It goes through the cases in a documentary style setting of how and why these women are now in prison. The common theme is that each women will say that I never knew that "they" were going to kill that man and I went along because I was afraid myself. Yet the still end up sleeping with these guys. These women are always (most times) on drugs, and through every interview and even if they have been in prison for like 20 plus years already they still down play their roles in these crimes. Every single women does this. It's actually humorous. You cannot just select "play and have the whole thing play, after each episode, (as I am sure all of you know who have Prime memberships) you have to go back and select the next episode to play and select the "watch" button. This system really needs 20th century updating...

This show demonstrates the unvarnished truth of being behind bars, but also the stories of the human beings who were often in the wrong place at the wrong time for the wrong reason. Bad childhoods, bad choices, and no money for a dream team-so many sad stories and harsh realities. So much loss on so many levels. This show makes you think.

I'm really into these kind of shows. I like how they give you lots of background on the perpetrator. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because not all the shows are interesting. For every good episode , I feel there are 2-3 bad one's to follow.

This comment is more about Paxil and clinical depression than it is the case itself. Clearly, Cindy was mentally ill and stressed beyond the limits of anyone's imagination. Not an excuse for murder. But what they are trying to do is make this case about Paxil "withdrawal" (there's no such thing, it's not a narcotic). They stated she was only on the drug for a month when the mother "stole" the Paxil and hid it from her and she went through this so-called "withdrawal." It takes at least two months for any seratonergic anti-depressant to get in the bloodstream. Yes, you're supposed to go off slowly but she wasn't on the drug long enough to suffer any ill effects. And, too, if the mother "hoarded" her meds, why didn't she simply call her doctor and order a new dosage? The whole defense smells. As far as the show in general, it's excellent. It's very even-handed, and some of the stories are ineffably sad. In some cases, these women don't belong in jail but in therapy or a mental hospital--not life without. Others are clear evil psychopaths that should never breathe free air again. It's so obvious who has genuine, authentic remorse and who is lying--you can easily discern the empty, soulless shells from the women who really got a bad break in life.
