Jesus Christ - fucking haunting show. Netflix original.

Basically a docu-drama type show with real actors (Peter Skarsgard, the chick that plays Jackie Sharpe in House of Cards, a few other recognizable faces).

It's based on the death of Frank Olsen, a scientist that worked with the CIA on certain operations that dealt with bio-chemical warfare after WW2. The fucking CIA slipped him LSD and 9 days later he flew down 13 stories of a hotel to his death.

I'm not really giving away any spoilers. This premise is outlined in the first episode. It's the facts behind his death and the material he was working on and the people he worked with that makes it interesting. Sheds a light on what the American government is really capable of and willing to do.
