Critic Reviews

The Crime Writers Squad • Crime Writers On Jan 4, 2024

"Host Olivia LaVoice's experience as a TV reporter covering the case, plus her intimate relationship with the moms, provides solid storytelling. But it's confusing cast of characters and its 15-episode runtime made it hard for Lara to get into it."

Lauren Passell • Podcast The Newsletter Dec 18, 2023

"I was completely swept up by The Bakersfield Three...The Bakersfield Three is a thorough, intimate piece that unfolds like a door-stopper novel you can really…cozy up with, if murder is the kind of thing you like to cozy up with. I don’t want to spoil anything, but something happens in episode 11 that had me floored."
