    Actually McMillion$ (if Mods. can pls edit my title.) 6-parter. Has some positive reviews.
    I have been looking forward to this since I read a great, but long, magazine article some time ago.
    ETA: It appears it was a Daily Beast, “longform” piece. I knew it was long<grin>. But compelling.

    Thank You for the heads up. :)

    Looks interesting. I don't recall ever even knowing about this scheme.

    Is this series tied to the article at all? I remember being fascinated by the article when I read it a few years ago.

    I watched the first episode and I liked it. I hated that it ended because I wanted to know more. So I think I'm going to wait until the series is recorded and just binge it.

    Little bummed this is 6 episodes. Finished the first episode last night, and I want to watch more. :) Should have waited until all 6 were out and binged it.

    Oh man, after I typed my comment, I read Anubys's comment just above and he basically said the same thing. :D

    Yeah, I enjoyed Episode 1. A bit hard since I know enough about the underlying case from the Daily Beast story a few years ago, but still fun to see it play out.

    Interesting to see a mix of actors and the actual people in the cast.

    I remember that article, well written and fascinating story. It may have hit home for me because I was always a sucker for the Monopoly game at McD's even though I don't like McD food.

    Good to hear the series is worthwhile. I'll wait and then binge.
