Little bump as first 3 episodes have been released today.

Looks like it could be very good, and a fantastic cast.

Is anyone else watching this on Disney Plus right now?

Very eye opening on the machinations of "Big Pharma", and their relationship to the regulators, especially regarding the opioid crisis.

2 episodes in - pretty decent so far.

Mrs wasn't that keen on the first episode, so I watched it on my own. Really enjoyed it, if that's possible due to the subject?

Depending how true the events were actually portrayed, Purdue Pharma & the Sackler family were truly evil sons of B****ES! Shocking state of affairs and the US political system doesn't come out of it too well either.

A really good watch.

Very interesting to see different peoples awful journeys hooked on this drug as well as how devoid of any empathy the family making it were.

It’s certainly interesting and upsetting at the same time, seeing users affected by it, and to think this really happened :(

I spotted this last night funnily enough. Hoping one of the guys throws up a review, as I've got so much to watch right now. But it is sounding very promising.

I've watched all the 8 episodes and it is truly fantastic. The more you watch, the more you cannot believe how Purdue, the FDA and certain American government officials let this drug continue to be used and sold for such a long period!!

Started this today. Halfway through the 3rd episode. I've read articles on the subject before and it is as the series makes out :eek:

Amazing show. So well made and probably one of my favourite shows in a long time.

I'm 2 in and absolutely hooked. I'll need to check out how accurate it is but will probably wait until it's over as finding out it's overly dramatised "for effect" would just put me off watching.
