They start a lot of their sentences with "so" and "I mean". They use "well" for dramatic pauses and it all gets very hard to take them seriously as they seem to have done extensive research.

It was great.

Description

In 1971, a mild-mannered accountant and Sunday school teacher from New Jersey named John List murders his wife, mother and three children — only to disappear and begin a new life entirely on the other side of the country. Now, two veteran journalists go inside the mind of the killer, learn about the doomed family, and revisit the 18-year-quest to bring List to justice — a saga even more bizarre and twisted than ever previously reported. New episodes will be released each Tuesday through June 21.
