    When Debra Newell met John Meehan on dating site for the 50+ crowd, he seemed too good to be true. A handsome, fit, successful doctor? She was interested. But, beginning with their first date, there were warning signs...something wasn't quite right here. But she ignored her instincts and allowed him to move quickly. He moved in with her after a few weeks and convince her to marry him after just two months. All the while, her adult children begged her to pay attention to the red flags, lies, and abusive behavior.
    In Part 1, we learn about Debra and John's whirlwind romance, see how he groomed her, and meet several other women he victimized and terrorized over the years.

  • Who in gay hell exercises in a room heated to 105 degrees?!?!
    Sweating and stretching isn't our jam, but Bikram Chaudry (we have a request into Jesus to have his last name changed--WE WILL NOT HAVE RABIA'S LAST NAME BESMIRCHED!!!) recruited thousands of people to try his so-called "new" brand of yoga. He broke them down physically and mentally at his training workshops, which served as recruitment centers for his sexual predator ways. Girl - smells like a cult to us!

  • On Oct. 24, 2011, 12-year-old Garrett Phillips was murdered in his home in Potsdam, a small town in upstate New York. Police quickly zeroed in on a suspect in this unthinkable crime: Oral “Nick” Hillary, a black man in the mostly white community, who was a soccer coach at Clarkson University and the ex-boyfriend of Garrett’s mother, Tandy Cyrus. Hillary insists that he is innocent. There is no evidence of his guilt and he has an alibi. And so begins a 5-year battle for the truth.

But the idyllic childhood Marcus paints for his twin conceals a dark family secret. Now, after decades of hiding the painful realities of their past, Alex and Marcus go on a journey together to face the truth and finally discover who Alex really is.

  • For 13 summers, Timothy Tredwell journeyed into the Alaskan wilderness to spend four months living among the grizzly bears. Though Treadwell believed that he and the bears had an understanding--he considered them his close friends--he and his girlfriend Amy Huguenard were eventually killed and devoured by one of the bears. For the five summers before his death, he took a video camera on his trips and shot over 100 hours of tape. "Grizzly Man", the brilliant documentary by master filmmaker Werner Herzog, tells the story of Treadwell's fascinating life and terrifying death--and uses much of treadwell's own footage to do so.

  • Wrinkles The Clown is a REAL-LIFE bogeyman. He’s here to haunt your nightmares.
    It started with a silent black and white surveillance video uploaded to YouTube which depicted a child sleeping peacefully. Suddenly, a hand appeared and deranged man disguised as a clown pulled himself out from beneath her bed. Afterward, similar videos started appearing online—a terrifying looking clown pushing a cart in a parking lot, waving alongside a busy highway, holding balloons in front of a suburban home, and, most shocking of all, terrorizing a family who had gathered for a game night. Who is he? Why is he doing this? What will it take to stop him?

  • THIS IS ABOUT THE SPORTS AND STILL SOMEHOW ONE OF OUR FAVORITE DOCS WE’VE EVER COVERED! 
    Welcome to Florida, land of swamp dinosaurs, tanning salons, and, like, humidity.  But did you also know it was ground zero for the high-profile doping scandal that rocked Major League Baseball? They say South Florida is a sunny place for shady people and this is certainly true of steroid peddler Anthony Bosch and his most notorious client, Alex Rodriguez of the New York Yankees. While Bosch's medical credentials may be lacking, his storytelling skills are first rate as he hilariously details the rise and fall of his "health clinic", including mob connections, financial chicanery, his cocaine habit, and Rodriguez's eccentric behavior. AND A BUNCH OF ADORABLE LITTLE KIDS DO ALL THE REENACTMENTS. IT’S HILARIOUS!

  • SEX. LIES. MURDER.
    What happened to 30 year old Travis Alexander? His friends found him dead on his bathroom floor. He'd been stabbed, shot, and nearly decapitated. When police asked who in Travis's life would want him dead, everyone said the same person: his ex-girlfriend, Jodi Arias. But Jodi hadn't seen Travis in weeks and claimed to be thousands of miles away at the time of the murder. But then the cops found the camera--the camera with the sexy pictures...and the proof.
    In Part 2, Jodi Arias takes the stand herself, an unusual step in what is already one of the most salacious and talked about trials of all time.

  • Israel Keyes is the most terrifying serial killer you’ve maybe never heard of. 
    Here’s what we know about him: He was methodical—he left “kill kits” hidden all across the country. He hid them years before using them, so he was also patient and self controlled. He picked his victims at random to avoid detection and is believed to have murdered at least 11 people across the United States between 2001 and 2012. He was a meticulous serial killer who constantly morphed his modus operandi and the location in which he killed which helped him evade capture for years. 
    In this bone chilling documentary, we actually see him kidnap his final victim, and we watch him being arrested. We go into the interrogation room with him as the police and FBI try to get the names and locations of his victims. But it’s all a game to Keyes, and he’s only willing to divulge a few of his secrets.

  • FAM!! Lady RuPaul (Charles) herself narrates this one!!
    This episode is an affectionate look at everyone's favorite televangelist / Gay Icon / Face Tattoo-er, Tammy Faye Bakker. The eldest of eight children in rural Minnesota, Tammy Faye married Jim Bakker in 1960, and soon they found a following on the gospel circuit. Riding a tide of religious fundamentalism, the Bakkers reached their gaudy heights with the PTL Network and the spinoff Christian theme park Heritage USA. Then the roof caved in. Jim was forced to pay hush money to future Playboy centerfold , Jessica Hahn, and then was submitted to rival Jerry Falwell's hostile take-over of the network. Soon Jim was in jail for fraud, and Tammy was at Betty Ford for addiction to prescription drugs. You guys, We have A LOT to say about this one.

  • In Steubenville, Ohio, high school football players are untouchable. So when two players are accused of assaulting an underage girl at a pre-season party, it seems almost impossible to get the real story. But when an amateur crime blogger uncovers disturbing evidence on the players’ social media accounts, the town—and quickly the country—are forced to face what these boys have done. With unprecedented access to police documents, exhibits, and evidence, the documentary feature unflinchingly asks: "why didn't anyone stop it?"

    It's the most famous--and most obsessed over--missing person's case of our time.
    On February 9, 2004, Maura Murray, a promising young nursing student, left her college dorm, emptied her bank account, and drove to a remote New Hampshire town where she didn't know a soul. Just after 7pm, her car crashed into a tree. A witness spoke to her, offering help, which she refused. And then she vanished into thin air. Nobody has seen or heard from her since. Everybody has a theory: The family knows more than they're saying, the police botched the case and are covering it up, Maura fled her life and started over in Canada. This documentary series attempts to solve the mystery.
