This Is A Robbery (Netflix streaming):

March 18, 1990, 13 works of art were stolen from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. Guards admitted two men posing as police officers responding to a disturbance call, and the thieves tied the guards up and looted the museum.

Interesting crime doc. I can’t say it’s riveting edge-of-your-seat, but it’s worthy of some attention, because how it happened is so bizarre. Elements of hacks/rookies, yet elements of professional crooks. Plus, the insulated nature of Boston neighborhoods (20 people on the scene, none of them saw or heard anything, for example), lots of plausible theories, and zero answers.

4 episodes, each about 45-50 minutes in length, so not a bad time killer at all. I’d say if you’re up in the air about what to watch, give this one a go.
