Wonder why they aren't going to show all of them. Here in the US they're showing Linda Carty's story this week. Last week it was James Carty.

On the 23rd they will profile Joseph Garcia and George Rivas, and on the 30th, Hank Skinner.

I checked the US Directv schedule for the series "On Death Row". They are doing one episode a week on Fridays at 7PM Pacific daylight time on Channel 285, ID.

Interesting, they showed Barnes first here in the US, then Carty last night (3/16/12).

He also did another documentary called "Into the Abyss" with Michael Perry. I think it comes out on DVD soon!

I asked discovery Japan to broadcast this one.According to some review,George Rivas and Joseph Garcia 's Episode includes about Law of Parties,2of their co-defender are on death row because of this(non-shooters)
Also,hoping these episode will be sold on iTunes(I have US account,secretly)

Cannot import into the abyss's DVD,a bit nervous about it.

Unfortunately I can find it nowhere in German speaking countries. Does anyone know if it will (or is) broadcasted in Switzerland, Germany or Austria?

As I'm nerd in home country of nerd,I could watch "On Death Row".
Garcia and Rivas episode has gravity Joseph's first crime,which I've been wondered why it didn't taken as self defense.
Rivas looks like very calm,Garcia's "vision",he saw the scene of his 99th birthday..It's so sad and hoping him the best.
Law of Parties related part is,told by Garcia,Who I didn't know he got Death Penalty under Law of Parties.

Also today,I got "Into the abyss"DVD,watched half and decided to watch later,too hard to see.

Director likes Joseph,I guess.also Hank,and neutral for Rivas.(and didn't like Michael..)
I watched part1 and 2,(cause Mr.Skinner talks so fast for me,I cannot watch other 2 till I understand what he said)

I saw years ago,his"Grizzly Man".graphic,but beautiful,I thought.Timothy Treadwel lived and died along his hope,unlike people in death row..


In "Into the abyss",what director expected 28years old man only 8 days to death?
laughing is used calm one's fear,Not sure for michael,but some people says he is joyfully.
It's painful.
