    Spoiler alert: they still haven't find the stolen art. Just Google it to learn about the heist and what was stolen. Don't waste your time with four episodes that end up with a big fat nothing.

    the isabella gardner museum is one of my top 5 museums in the world. i go everytime i am in boston. the doc was good and i learned a lot, but they didnt solve the mystery (not my reason for 4 starts) and in the end i was let down by the investigative details.

    4 hours of investment with no satisfaction of an ending. Very disappointed. Drawn our way too long.

    It's hard to get used to documentaries that take a whole season to watch, but , I enjoyed this. It seems that the most successful thieves are the ones who are brazen . These people were certainly brazen .

    Wow. We never knew about the Gardner museum, or this heist -- until now. We watched the preview, got hooked, and ended up binging the entire series. Wonderfully done, and takes you through the entire robbery, the suspects, and the years since it happened. When it is over you will want to visit this museum, and more importantly you'll want to help find those paintings!

    If you have ever seen The Town or Black Mass you will become familiar with the "players" within this true crime documentary. Some rather annoying witnesses within the story made it a hard watch at times. One thing that I object to with the producers ; why was footage of the Milltown Cemetary attack ( 1988 ) included in the story? It was carried out by the UDA at a catholic funeral and had no context ?

    The name Barnicle is discrediting enough! This three episodes too long piece is without anything new!! A story based on the pomposity, arrogance and incompetence of a self indulged board of directors providing this institution with the security of a candy store is hilarious. Wealthy, MERITLESS, meaningless board members voting for themselves by virtue of their being in the "right womb, at the right time" is non stop laughs. DO NOT, I REPEAT I HOPE YOU DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME...LOL AS I DID

    Snooze fest. Disjointed presentation. And no resolution! Read Wikipedia and save yourself four hours.
  • Apr 13, 2021
    Extremely slow for some facts that can be quicker checked On google. Not worth the time.
  • Apr 11, 2021
    Somewhat interesting, but at times unfocused, look at a case I knew nothing about. The nature of this case encourages the old tried and true tradition of "throwing stuff against a wall to see what sticks", and the doc heads down a few of these seemingly far fetched rabbit holes. I'd have probably rated this higher years ago but the true crime doc field has become so saturated that it is much harder to stand out. 5.5/10
