Audience Reviews for Dealers in Death: Murder and Mayhem in America

Tons of archival footage with a narrator to do justice to it all, it was to short with not enough detail about any one person that they talked about. I was most disappointed that they tried to group so many outlaws into one episode. (There may be more than one episode but, I didn't see them on Hulu.) They didn't even talk about Al Capones stay in Eastern State Penitentiary and the lavish lifestyle that he lived while he was there. Considering how poorly this episode was produced, if they were so determined to produce it so poorly then it would have been best to not make this damned thing at all!
