Heist joined Netflix earlier this month, and it is currently one of the top trending shows on the platform in Ireland.
The series details three heists – ‘The Sex Magick Money Murder’, ‘The Money Plane’ and ‘The Bourbon King’.
Through reenactments and original interviews, the story of each heist is told over two episodes.
The official synopsis for the series reads: “Millions in stolen cash. Missing luxury bourbon. Watch ordinary people almost get away with extraordinary heists in this true crime series.”
The Sex Magick Money Murder episodes focus on the case of Heather Tallchief and Roberto Solis – who pulled off a $3 million heist in 1993.
The Money Plane details how a small group of thieves stole $7.4 million from an airport, while The Bourbon King episodes tell the story of family man Toby Curtsinger – who enlists his friends in a scheme to steal the world’s most expensive bourbon.
Viewers have been taking to Twitter to share their thoughts on the new series, with many calling it a “must watch”.
One fan tweeted: “Heist is dope. Netflix has mastered the thriller/true crime doc”, while a second penned: “Heist on Netflix? 10/10 do recommend if you’re into crime documentaries!”

“Heist” is the best thing Netflix has put out in so long. The “bourbon heist” episodes are so good.

If films are not made recreating all the stories told in #heistnetflix it would be a crime to cinema to deprive an audience of that
