As most of the U.S. is forced into their homes due to the coronavirus pandemic, streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu have become a central part of American life, and there is no more timely series than Paramount’s “Waco,” which recently became available on Netflix.

The six part series details the famous stand-off that occurred in early 1990’s Waco, Texas, between a religious cult and the FBI. The series premiered in early 2018, and gained new prominence recently after being picked up by Netflix. What exactly happened in Waco remains a point of contention, over a quarter of a century later. What’s become more clear with time is that the tragic and significant loss of life that occurred didn’t need to happen.
