Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

A true-crime story packed with intrigue, this show untangles a political and personal scandal of epic proportions. The Billionaire, the Butler, and the Boyfriend uses interviews from journalists, politicians, Bettencourt family friends, and a financial advisor who looks like the cat who ate the canary. The moral? The more money you have, the fewer people you can trust.

Visually, this show doesn't offer much to grab onto; the story is in the telling. Teens and parents who enjoy true crime shows and podcasts will like this the most, though the most chilling aspects don't have to do with murder. People interested in the politics of money will have lots to sink their teeth into.
