It’s 1967 and the era of free love, drug experimentation and Vietnam is in full effect. When teenager Emma goes missing, Sgt. Sam Hodiak starts asking around. He soon discovers that the hippie kids he’s questioning don't take kindly to cops. Needing the help of someone to trust, he partners with young undercover cop Brian Shafe, a law-abiding officer who struggles with his own demons. He also begins to rely on Charmain Tully, an ambitious rookie cop who’s anxious to prove herself in a male-dominated profession. It’s not long before they stumble upon a small-time cult leader seeking out vulnerable women to join his cause. From there, they follow this man’s trail down a rabbit hole of drugs, sex, murder and a cultural revolution. Little could they know, however, the guy they're hunting will eventually become the killer we now recognize as Charles Manson.

It's a pretty good show. But the Manson character is just awfully annoying, and somewhat ruins the whole show. In fact, the whole Manson farm is filled with terrible actors/actresses.

Would I have watched this without Duchovny in it? No, probably not. Do I think it´s a waste of time? No, because I liked it.

I like the style of the show, it´s not fast paced action but it isn´t boring. I don´t know how much of the Manson character is fictious and what is historical. Since I didn´t know that much about him in the first place, besides the obvious that is, it doesn´t matter much to me. I regard him as simply another character.

It's not that bad, but it feels fake. The 60's hippies, Manson, Duchovny, everything looks out of place, like its been done by someone whose only insight of the period is "Easy RIder". They should have asked the creators of Mad Men how to do it right.
