I thought the jinx was excellent but I deliberately left it off my list because i feel they dragged 6 episodes out of something that probably should have been a really strong feature length documentary. Or at the very most, a 2-3 parter. There was a load of shitey oul filler interviews with local cops etc which weakened it overall imo
