I just binge-watched all 8 episodes. (I'm home today, sick. Ugh.)My knowledge of the Big Bend area is very limited and rather new. This show told quite a story. I do feel that the show gave a good impression of who Glenn Felts was, as well as show a bit about attitude of the community. I did notice some prominent landmarks were missing from the show (ie, the Starlight Theater). I will be entering the community soon as a neophyte with little prior knowledge of "how things used to be", but I can only hope that the community can heal from this tragedy and move forward. I'd be interested in learning more about how the community has changed and about the rift that the filming of this series caused among the locals, if anyone is willing to expound.It was worth spending a sick day watching all 8 episodes.

Others (the ones who appeared on the show, obviously) participated in the hope that they could influence the message projected by the show. Overall, I liked the show, although it seemed a bit padded to me.
