There's a human element missing from this entire production.

Apr 2, 2020 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

What may catch a viewer off guard is how gripping the story is and how it flies by.

Apr 2, 2020 | Full Review…

This is not a flashy series with the quick jump cuts and comedic irony interlaced within the story that you sometimes find when documentaries try to appeal to mainstream audiences, and that's okay.

Apr 10, 2020 | Rating: B | Full Review…

The choice to frame the series around Farak's case, rather than Dookhan's, feels structurally shaky... Yet Carr's thoroughness is unassailable.

Apr 3, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Like a John Grisham thriller but more visceral because it's true, "How to Fix a Drug Scandal" races by with its combination of engaging angles.

Apr 3, 2020 | Full Review…

Veers dangerously close to becoming cheesy and artificial. But the results of Farak and Dookhan's actions is so fascinating, that we're very interested in watching this until the end.

Apr 3, 2020 | Full Review…

This docu-series serves as a reminder to carefully consider how much we trust our criminal justice system.

Audience Reviews for How to Fix a Drug Scandal: Miniseries

    Watching this series is probably the most pointless thing I've ever done with my life and that includes spending 2 years at an expensive art school only to end up with 6 transferable credits when I was over art school. I have no idea why it matters if a chemist had tampered with evidence. If that evidence got her high, IT WAS DRUGS. The crime that the defendant is accused of committing was, in fact, committed. Like are these flaky ass film makers really out here trying to convince us that a huge number of people accused of selling drugs were actually selling FAKE DRUGS???! What on earth is happening???? Who is selling fake drugs??? Who's is BUYING fake drugs for that matter??? Is this a rampant problem in the streets??? All these dudes in jail for peddling FAKE drugs????Just....WHHYYHY???? WHAT WAS THIS EVEN MADE??????? Why would anyone ever have fake drugs on them for any reason? And if they had a reason, that reason is ILLEGAL. So again, I ask, WHY WAS THIS MADE??? Nothing these chemists did effected any of the cases!! Whether someone is carrying around, selling or buying fake drugs or real drugs, THEY ARE BREAKING THE LAW.

    This is a must watch for all Americans.

    An insanely complicated true story worth telling, but the documentary itself is too long and weirdly paced.
