    The Most Dangerous Year

    ★★★★½

Sometimes the issues I've found with documentaries or docu-series are that they can feel one sided. Dangerous Year however doesn't fall into that category.

The writing is incredible. The pacing never feels slow or goes too fast. It sets itself up nicely to always keep the audience…
