    "Candy" Is One Of The Wildest True-Crime Series I've Ever Seen, And I'm Still Upset About The Ending

    "Intense story from start to finish."

    When it comes to original programming, Hulu has continued to drop hit after hit! And its latest series, Candy, is no different!

    Candy is a limited series about a real-life murder that shocked the suburban town of Wylie, Texas...and later the nation. It follows '80s housewife Candace "Candy" Montgomery as she stood accused of killing her friend, Betty Gore, with an axe.

    The series stars Jessica Biel as Candy:

    And Melanie Lynskey as Betty:

    As an added bonus, both of their husbands are featured in the series as well. Justin Timberlake and Jason Ritter play cops helping to solve the case of who killed Betty and why.

    I recently binged Candy, and I can honestly say it had me hooked from beginning to end. I was completely unfamiliar with this case, which made watching it even more intriguing.

    Plus, there are only five (hourlong) episodes, so you'll blow through it in no time.

    But you don't have to take my word for it. Here's what other viewers have said about the show:

    "If we're having an argument, you go grab an ax, argument ends right there. I'm out the door. We can finish this discussion on the telephone." I'm still cracking at this line from @candyonhulu🤣 It's a fave! Those 2 police officers finished me, they're so funny😂🤣 #CandyOnHulu

    #CandyOnHulu #Candy is a taut thriller starring the under rated #JessicaBiel in her most challenging role, along with the stalwart #MelanieLynskey who's in superb form as always... Pleasantly Surprised and Delighted to see #JustinTimberlake play this role to perfection ❤️👍

    #CandyOnHulu is good! A slow burn and intense story from start to finish. Jessica Biel gives an outstanding performances as Candy. While this five part miniseries is a uneasy and patient watch it does make the payoff to the shocking reveal. It’s a solid watch on Hulu. 🔥👍

    Jessica Biel had to go somewhere mentally to play such a role. Ugh, the nightmares I would have had. #CandyOnHulu
