Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Who Do You Believe? is a true crime series that features individuals from both sides of a crime discussing what happened from their points of view. Conversations about criminal behavior, ranging from bigamy to violent crimes like attempted murder, are offered with a significant amount of detail. There's some sexual innuendo and strong language (with the strongest words bleeped). Illegal drug dealing and abuse is also discussed.
Is It Any Good?
The exploitative true crime series features people offering separate, and usually contradictory, accounts of misdeeds that were committed, and their individual roles in it. Not surprisingly, what the individuals have to say about one another isn't very good. Meanwhile, despite the fact that most of the the misdeeds being discussed have been resolved by the criminal justice system, Who Do You Believe? encourages viewers to continue speculating about which person is being honest, or at a minimum, whose story is more legitimate, until the very end. The overall result is a series that doesn't seem to have much purpose outside of being petty.
