Leaving Neverland documentary on HBO

It's on Sunday and Monday at 8:00 p.m. EST.

 

Today I've done some online reading about the background.  On the fence about watching it, though.  Anybody here planning to watch?

@wildcat fan  If I could, I would.  I don't have HBO.

 

Why on the fence?  

 

It's already been seen at the Sundance Festival.

  No I won’t watch it. I’m not saying Michael Jackson is innocent of all claims. I just have a problem believing these two guys who defended him when he was alive. Now suddenly they have a different story to tell when Michael isn’t here to defend himself!

  I have no interest in anything they have to say.

Based on the reviews I've read, it sounds like it will be disturbing, so I don't know if I can sit through it.  Yet, I'd like to hear their version of events.

I could understand them saying one thing at the trial out of  loyalty to him yet feeling differently about it all now that they're older.

@wildcat fan  Yes, it may be disturbing.  When shown at Sundance, there were professionals available in the lobby for anyone who felt the need to talk to them.

 

Consider this...however disturbing it might be to watch it, the subjects lived it.

 

Anyone who wants to discuss truth or fiction...I'm not participating.

So sorry, I had some of the many kids molested by Michael Jackson mixed up.

@LoriLori  Thanks for the information.  I wondered why they spoke up, then were silent, and are now speaking up again.

 

Sleazy parents.

Sorry, the kids I was referring to whose parents settled civil suits were not these.

AND IN THE ONLY CRIMINAL TRIAL

 

(and there may have been other civil settlements, we wouldn't know) --

 

THERE WAS STRONG EVIDENCE.  It included this:  Michael Jackson had a unique mark on his...you-know-what. One of the key pieces of evidence was that the young plaintiff, Jordan Chandler, described it perfectly.  And described disgusting repeated abuse.  But like some other celebrities the jury let him go despite the weight of the evidence.
