The Last Defense Reviews:

I am a real crime fanatic, fascinated by the entirety of the process from the offense to the investigation to (especially) the trial. An avid watcher of most real crime shows and investigative reporting (including Dateline, 48 Hours, etc.) I've found that really nice productions are rare. So many are vapid, trite, repetitive, unimaginative, and cliched. THE LAST DEFENSE regards crimes I have seen and read about many, many times in various media forms. However, the perspective, narrative, and fresh + old notification is so masterfully conveyed that these over-told stories seem new and refreshing; it is just like hearing of these crimes for the first time as said by the most consummate of storyline tellers. ABC has provided real quality programming here.


Loved the first episode. Went in not knowing the premise at all - thought it would be like one of the many primary cable murder shows where it's all wrapped up in an hour. Didn't take long to notice the superior production values, and halfway through I realized they weren't going to resolve it in one episode - it skewed obviously more toward the defense side and you're wondering how they convicted her for only inconsistent statements and no footprints in the mulch? The prosecution gotta have more evidence, Can't wait for the next one.Don't watch too many series dramas on Netflix, etc. Last thing I saw like this was Manhunt: Unabomber which was great, but a docudrama. This relies on archival footage and sit-down interviews but holds your attention because it seems they have access to everything and most of the key folks accepted to talk. I expect there may be trial footage in the next one?


Darlie Routier's murder conviction is, over twenty years later, out of the public consciousness. Supposedly the Routier situation was solved and, sadly, there has been ever more shocking crimes. Still, at the time, it was a double kid murder shot heard around the world. It seems most people thought Darlie was guilty, she got the death sentence, situation closed. The Last Defense re-opens the happenings and trial that place Darlie Routier on death row. It's surprising that few forensic experts, far surpassing any layman's knowledge of the crime, trust Darlie was wrongly convicted. Now, two decades on, this present is going to create you rethink what you thought you knew. To do so this can't be amateur assemblage of over zealous prosecutors and talking heads. It isn't. The Last Defense makes a compelling situation expertly presented that there was a large police/legal system rush to judgement and a well orchestrated hero assassination of Darlie Routier carried out in the courtroom with the support of a salivating press. The tragedy of the brutal murder of two tiny kids is not to be forgotten in all of this. This is the type of situation everyone wants the guilty party to removed from society with swift and severe justice served. The question is was the current assassin convicted? Judging by so much of what is brought to light here there is more than just a tiny doubt. First, it seems Darlie had no reason or predilection to commit any crime, certainly one that involved her children. Second, Darlie seems more guilty of a child-like mentality than either mental disease or insidious criminal smarts. Bottom line, she likely couldn't have staged the crime stage the prosecutors are telling she manufactured. It's clear she doesn't have the intent or skill as one imagines even a easy crime she might scene would be the easiest situation to crack, probably ever. The woman had no intent, no motive, and couldn't have pulled the crime off without direct and concrete evidence seems obvious. In reality all the supposed scientific evidence presented to the jury in a super conservative Texas city (a city almost guaranteed Darlie was going to be convicted) is pseudo science plain and simple. Add to this the strange fact Routier's celebrated ,and well-paid, defense attorney decided to not bring in his own rebuttal experts, even after he'd paid them to search holes in the prosecution's science, absolutely stupefies. The present brings up a fact: this was a quite unfair trial and outcome based on the the unproven science and questionable facts. A total conviction by hero assassination within a climate of bias which this created. One gotta hope folks given the death sentence are convicted not by bias and only by irrefutable evidence leaving no reasonable doubt. Isn't this the method the U.S. criminal justice system is suppose to to work? If The Last Defense does nothing else it plainly shows how a conviction, and death sentence, can be hijacked. If Darlie was guilty, which seems highly doubtful, it's clear she wasn't convicted based on guilt of the crime itself. Disclaimer: I'm writing this after seeing three episodes of The Last Defense and will add to this review if anything further revealed now urls Darlie to the commission of the murders. I suggest seeing this series as it is professionally produced and raises serious questions regarding the death penalty. This is a well above average crime documentary.
