This is when we are introduced to the breakout “star” of the series FBI agent Doug Mathews. He was bored and snatched the Post-it off a senior agent’s desk, an investigation began that would eventually lead to greed, deceit and the theft of millions of dollars from McDonalds. The story behind that investigation is the basis for McMillions, an extremely entertaining six-part doc series on HBO. Like the best true crime, the central narrative of McMillions takes some surprising detours and delivers plenty of “you’ve gotta be kidding me” details.

Both Paco and George give this series 6 Herzogs (out of 10).
