Trivia

"The Killing Game" about the life of killer Rodney Alacala was the last story by the well respected Harold Dow. Dow passed away as a result of complications from acute asthma during its production; he had arrived at a hospital emergency room and an inhaler was later found on the floor of his vehicle. Dow's son was brought in to finish narration of the episode and 48 Hours dedicated the episode posthumously to Dow. See more »

As if Opinion Matters
8 September 2020 | by kathleenmcbrairSee all my reviews

The show is interesting, but it does the unspeakable: It asks viewers to weigh in, as though gossip should ever be considered. The judicial process is problematic enough without armchair jurors. It's a dangerous gimmick, and shame on them.
