The worst show of this sort
20 April 2016 | by mesicemiSee all my reviews

The "psychologist" that was obviously chosen for her looks and not her ability to do her job, calls the people she interviews "bad seed". Looking for what is wrong with them, disregarding everything they say. A horrible show. Don't waste your time with it. I found my self so annoyed when watching, because I see no point in interviewing them, if everything they say is taken as a lie. "It is obvious that he is not feeling remorse" " You can see that he is not feeling anything"

Yeah, a real psychologist. Good idea, horrible execution.

Another quote: "he did not want to get caught because of his lack of remorse". I have seen sain people not wanting to get caught. Just the worst, worst show.
