Netflix “The Pharmacist” review: A moving David vs. Goliath docuseries

The Pharmacist is now available to stream on Netflix. Here’s our quick overview:

  • It starts with a father’s obsession to solve his son’s murder in the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans.
  • His obsessions uncover a massive pill mill, and take us on a story of government corruption, ignorance, and ineptitude.
  • It’s a four-part docuseries that shows the power and influence one person can have, and the ramifications thereafter.

Two things to know about this Netflix The Pharmacist review:

  1. We aim to be 100% spoiler-free, so this is all opinion.
  2. We watched the whole series, not just an episode like other websites.

A big can of worms

The story of Dan Schneider, The Pharmacist is explosive. There is no better word to describe the events within this docuseries. The progression from senseless murder to the opioid epidemic shows how actions have big consequences.

Movies and books have tried to give a narrative to this, but The Pharmacist does it best. Each episode is its own, contained segment of a bigger story. With each new episode, there is a new angle or hurdle that has to be overcome. The obsession of Dan Schneider is our vehicle as we’re shown, through his suffering, the collapse of a real community.

This docuseries can be summed up with this saying: The road to hell is paved with good intentions. By the end of the fourth episode, you’ll understand why.

Who this docuseries is for

This is not a docuseries with a happy ending. It’s a realistic take on big problems that will inspire and disgust in equal measure. At no point does it hide from what happened— flaws are shown and ignorance amplified with lingering shots.

If you want to see an American hero, who battled through adversity and his own demons, this is for you.

If you want to see a David vs. Goliath story, where a pharmacist takes down a billion-dollar company, this docuseries is for you.

If you want to see how a God-loving man, with good intentions, is the catalyst for an epidemic, watch The Pharmacist now.

4k/HDR/Dolby Atmos

The Pharmacist looks and sounds fantastic in 4K and Dolby Vision. Unfortunately, the docuseries does not support Dolby Atmos.

The Pharmacist verdict: Binge
