Trivia

The nurses in season six are based on two real life nurses, Gwendolyn Graham and Cathy Wood. The two were convicted for the murder of 5 elderly patients at the Alpine Manor Nursing Home in Walker, MI in the 1980's. They were using the initials to spell out M-U-R-D-E, identical to the nurses in season six. The two are still imprisoned, with Wood to be released in 2021. See more »

What accent is Kathy Bates attempting?
20 November 2018 | by alangthompsonSee all my reviews

It's drifts from Scots to Irish to Yorkshire with an occasional Yankee and Mid-Atlantic. I expect more from her. Good ripping yarn though.
