2 stars for 2 episodes
18 January 2020 | by gdumpSee all my reviews

That's one star apiece for each episode.

I was in high school during 1968 and what's portrayed here is pure nonsense. The plot is simply unbelievable on so many levels. It involves a conspiracy theory that even a hard-core conspiracy nut would say is far-fetched. For reasons I don't understand, CBC is heavily into doing "period" pieces and every one that they do is an absolute mess of anachronisms and basic stupidity. This one is true to form.
