We all love our cop and crime shows. However, I decided to watch a documentary series in Netflix this time instead of my usual fiction crime shows. The documentary was interestingly based on the criminals that tried to get away. Have you ever heard the saying “If you do the crime, expect to do the time”? Maybe these criminals should watch this series to figure out that they always pay in the end.
If you are not from Texas or my hometown of Dallas, you probably don’t know who Amber Guyger is. You probably don’t know why her story has turned the city inside out or why the outcomes of her actions became a dark cloud over the city of Dallas that will not be erased anytime soon.
I grew up watching every detective show on TV, and loved them. I have rewatched so many episodes of NCIS and CSI: Las Vegas that I can practically recite some of lines by memory. Despite my adoration for a good cop show, I find that the same clichés are often repeated with new faces and new locations. It was hard to find excitement in another detective show, but I think I have found the cure to my boredom. Welcome to the stage, Death in Paradise.
