The report implies that portions of the blood evidence are not consistent with Jeremy Banks' story of what transpired.

I gave up with this on episode 4. The episodes I thought were too short with too many ads. I would've preferred to know when/how Michelle met Jeremy a lot earlier. They narrate it sort of arse-about-face. I wasn't keen on the whole Eli story running alongside it, either. It was irritating not knowing why he got involved. My favourite voices were Patty and Ed. Will check up the rest on Google now.
