A surprising, thoroughly compelling documentary... A great testament to the power of the implacable pest.

The popularity of easily digestible true-crime narratives has led to a glut of stories such as this one, ambitious and rote and unable to indulge in the skepticism or the soul-searching that subjects as consuming as the opioid epidemic merit.

Presents a moving look at the ways grief can spur a person into activism.

Although that could be the docuseries's fatal flaw, it isn't: What The Pharmacist lacks in suspense and speed it makes up for in heart, emotional resonance, and ultimate gratification.
