It was OK

True crime doc based on a string of bank robberies in 90s Seattle, this is a decent show coming in at 86 mins. Anything more would have been too drawn out, glad they decided not to go the three episode route with this story.

There's not much to watch visually; while there are some old clips and photos used, the doc mainly uses old audio and interviews from the present time. Several motion posters have also been used. So, you can either play it in the background or if you'd rather 'watch this as a podcast', that'll work too. If you have 1.5 hrs to spare and aren't sure what watch as a true crime content enthusiast, this should be on your list.

I wonder if Netflix true crime docs are all beginning to look and sound the same.

True "Hollywood" story

A very good crime documentary, and a story that holds you from start to finish. From Olympia, Washington, home of Nirvana and grunge music, the bank robber dubbed "Hollywood" was born.

After reading Ann Rule's book "The End of the Dream, The Golden Boy Who Never Grew Up" I was fascinated with the story of Scott Scurlock and his band of merry cohorts. You can learn how his friends grew to love him and were prepared to be a part of his plans. Much more in depth, especially his early years in college. I don't condone what he did by any stretch of the imagination, but his story is a very compelling one.

Pretty embarrassing for these FBI agents

... who seem to be very impressed with themselves, but actually accomplished very little (if you really pay attention to how things played out), despite controlling enormous resources with plenty of time in their hands. The senior cop on the task force is portrayed as a stereotypical quick-trigger, but at least he seemed reasonably competent. Scott Johnson just seemed arrogant and largely ignorant (ultimately benefiting from the efforts of others). Maybe an unfair editing job by Netflix, but I sure hope your average (let alone senior) FBI team is a lot better than this!?!

I agree with the reviewers who criticized those who glorify the criminals who put other lives at risk for selfish reasons (Robin Hood was really not a good person either - even if the Sheriff of Nottingham was an a-hole), but it's hard to find anyone to actually admire in this story.
