Here’s what happens in the television world on Sunday, June 28th. All times are east.
I will be gone in the dark (HBO, 10 p.m., series premiere): “The documentary is structured [Michelle] McNamara’s letter, which one of her editors will sometime compare to that of Truman Capote. Indeed, McNamara was a talented writer who intuitively understood that the real story behind a violent crime is broken hearts and unrealized dreams, not evil geniuses planning their next move. This is not to say that the rapist and killer who first terrorized northern and then southern California in the 1970s and 1980s was not scary: a band of the perpetrator who breathed heavily on the phone and mocked one of his rape victims with a whisper, ‘I will kill you,It’s more terrifying than any horror movie. But in the end, he was no match for the group of self-proclaimed “citizen detectives” (and a freelance “investigative genetic genealogist”) who dedicated their lives to discovering the identity of the Golden State Killer, with McNamara as their patron saint and semi-official chronicler. ” Click here to read the rest of Katie Rife’s pre-air review.
