Have you ever wondered what really happened in the death of pop-star, Michael Jackson? Maybe you have some burning questions about the Casey Anthony trial. Well, you if you do have lingering questions about some of the most bizarre cases in the history of our country, you definitely will want to check out “How it Really Happened” with Hill Harper. While the mainstream media can be a great tool to make people vaguely aware of things they would otherwise be totally oblivious to, it rarely goes deep enough into the details of an event to truly illuminate the depths of what has taken place. How it Really Happened goes deeper than most shows you have watched — dangerously deeper.
To give you more insight on the show, we have provided five little facts that will likely get you hooked.
1. The Show Moves Beyond the Surface
After hearing the same facts regurgitated over and over, it becomes annoying. No matter how many shows you watch in a particular case or event, you only get so far in gaining new insight. How it Really Happened provides never before seen footage, interviews and multiple angles and perspectives that allow the viewing audience to draw its own conclusion. There are always multiple sides of the story that rarely make it to the surface. This show does a good job of uncovering them.
2. Brings Key Players to Life
Mass media exposure has served to desensitize the public to a great degree, and it would seem that just one more show that focuses on some of the most horrific events in our history would only exacerbate that reality. However, the way Hill Harper is able to bring these key players to life, showing sides of them that make them real and human, goes a long way in creating the capacity for people to relate and connect with some of the most sinister people on the planet.
3. It Introduces the Vulnerability of Iconic Personalities
Hill Harper does an exceptional job introduces the viewers to the more vulnerable and rare encountered sides of some of the most iconic figures of our time. For instance, the investigation into the death of Michael Jackson not only looks at the cause of death and who is responsible, it exposes the concerns and insecurities of Jackson that drove him to need to perform at such a high level. It was this need that led to his use of the pain medication that ultimately contributed to his death.
4. Gets Inside the Minds of the Deranged
There are certain events that take place and the general consensus is that a person who could do something so horrific has to be mentally deranged. Hill takes viewers on a journey into the deep recesses of the minds of people like Marshall Applewhite, O.J. Simpson, the Menendez brothers and more. The show gives the viewers the opportunity to see what was driving the behavior of these individuals at the time they did what they did.
5. Demystify the Mysterious
There is no shortage of mysterious deaths and disappearances of any number of people. In fact, Oxygen just ended a complete season on the disappearance/death of Maura Murray. Hill Harper not only looks horrific murders and suicides, but he also looks to answer questions associated with very mysterious activity and reality, including what led to the shocking and mysterious death of pop icon George Michael.
