I just watched it on Tivo with my wife. A lot of that sounds very familiar. Oprah did do a good job with this one.

I saw this too, and I agree.

Just finished streaming it. Very powerful, and Oprah managed to rein herself in to a degree, and give a public service by having the whole family's input and giving a plug for RAINN at the end.

Gregg Mulligan himself was also articulate enough not to have too many words put down his mouth by Oprah so it was a very balanced interview because she didn't get away with her usual "didn't you enjoy it" bullshit and rephrased "how did it feel" as "tell us what it did to you". Hopefully it'll get parcelled into 4 parts on Youtube so can be seen long after it goes off her site for the sections that were helpful.

On reflection, if it wasn't such a rounded packaged story IE his mother is dead, he moved on to marry and have a child that grew up fine - you'd wonder if that programme would have turned out as above-average as it was compared to her siding with female offenders in the past.

Does anybody know what the schedule is for these events? Is Oprah going to do one per week for awhile or what?

Also, are they genuinely available on Oprah website?

No idea about the schedule, there was a week's gap between the male offender special and the Gregg Mulligan single show. So maybe we'll have the female offender special by the end of the month.

On the day they're on TV there are only trailers on the website, the day after transmission the whole episode minus ads (but leaving in those annoying MTV "coming up" and "recap" mini-clips) is uploaded. No idea how long they stay there for, so watch fast.

Both are still on website- just take a little digging. new one still easy to find BUT must look in both cases for the ones noted as 00.00.00 as their time vs the 2 minute ad blurbs.

first show worth looking for- was twice lenght of sho as show was 2edited hrs into the commercial show hr (and NO commercials on the site videos- its broken into 4 parts and better than show for info but again you have to scroll back looking under VIDEOs - today it was back to page 5 but each day will move page/s . again look for the 00.00.00 timed ones. wish she'd made those download/recordable.
worth the tiny bit of finding effort for sure- just wish shed had a professional to guide the second one. felt it was little more sensationlized than the first show despite good intentions.

but totally worth watching. Heal on~ An
