The “everything 90’s is new again” mantra is still going strong on TV as ABC looked back last night at one of the most shocking true crime stories of the decade.
“Truth and Lies: The Menendez Brothers” reminds us of the shocking story of Lyle and Erik Menendez who were convicted of shooting their parents to death in cold blood.
I’d forgotten much about the specifics of the trial, but I was surprised by how much I actually remembered. The case really was one of the first extensively televised murder trials in the age of wall-to-wall cable news.
If you missed last night’s two-hour special, fear not. You can still catch it on demand, using hulu.
