In 1993, Mt. Carmel Ranch outside Waco, Texas, was the site of the deadliest siege in American history. A 51-day standoff with federal agents ended in tragedy, all at the hands of charismatic cult leader David Koresh.
Now, a new group of Branch Davidians is living on the same property under a new leader, Charles Pace. His goal: to repopulate the Branch of Davidian sect before the coming apocalypse.
This two-part feature documentary weaves a current-day narrative with the story of Koresh and his doomed followers. It is now 25 years since the Waco tragedy took place. The programme combines interviews with survivors on location at Mt. Carmel Ranch, some of whom have never spoken publicly before, as well as family, friends and key ATF/FBI officers, along with dramatic reconstructions of past events. Show less

The fuckin schadenfreude with all those Instagram cunts is the best ever. He should rot for what he did for a long time. Ja Rule is a cunt as well. I couldn’t have happened to a nicer bunch of people. I feel warm and fuzzy.
I don’t understand this whole smug reaction to the Fyre festival debacle. Didn’t you see the documentary ? Most of the actual workers didn’t get paid. Granted it’s an amazing story, feeling warm and fussy is kind of weird
I think 'most' people as mentioned in the documentary enjoyed seeing privileged rich millennial kids get conned and experience slumming it as they were manipulated by social media but also feel empathy for those none privileged workers and suppliers that got shafted. I don't think its either one or the other.. This Hulu doc is more content rich than the Netflix one imo if your gonna watch one its a lot better

Yeah hold on a bit. It’s the over privileged cunts I’m laughing at. Of course it’s a shit storm for the locals, but that woman who lost 60k has already had over 80k donated via crowdfunding so I’m not that bothered.
