The funny (not funny ha, ha) thing about this documentary is that I think I believed the accusations about Allen more before this documentary. So much of it feels forced and rehearsed. A friend of mine who was absolutely certain of Allen's guilt started watching it and messaged me saying she now believes Farrow is at least as messed up as Allen.

This pretty much shredded what Moses has stated in the past. Looks like that deal Ronan mentioned earlier that Woody offered him to be on his side, put him through college, etc., Woody probably also offered to Moses, who clearly took him up on it.

They really tried to spin that electric train part of the story in episode 4. In her 2014 open letter, Dylan described an electric train traveling in circles around the attic. Not just a non-powered toy train stored in the crawl space. So they referenced her open letter but completely omitted the part with her description of the operating electric train and tried to explain it away by the toy train stored in the crawl space.

And did anyone else pause it when they showed the diagram of the crawl space? It looked like the dimensions were around 8-10 ft squared with a very low, slopped ceiling. Not much room in there.

I thought Dylan was really credible even if Mia seemed "off" sometimes. This was really, really bad for Woody's legacy and that bums me out because I still want to like his work. I don't know. A lot of this doc seemed very one sided but I can't imagine anyone watching it and still doubting Dylan's allegations.

I don't know what happened, but this whole family seems to be deeply disturbed.

Are you kidding? I think it just reinforced everything Moses says. It's still same-old, same-old of Mia aligning family and friends to try to destroy Woody with the same distortions and outright lies.

Came to this program late. My opinion of Woody's guilt or innocence has always been that he didn't do it. Child molesters just aren't one and done; until I hear more evidence to the contrary, I'm just not convinced. And as far as his obvious predilection for younger females is concerned, despite what the documentary would have you believe, it's not the same thing. Still, I have no personal stake in this tale, so it's just an opinion.
Watching people like Matt Lauer, Charlie Rose, and Chris Cuomo reporting this story, seeing celebrities and former collaborators run to their Twitter accounts to loudly declare their condemnation of Woody when it became safe to do so, or to protect their career amused me as well.
