A spectacular program with few bumps
7 April 2008 | by BulldozerBeginsSee all my reviews

While the twists and turns of the plots are to be expected, the only time the amazing-factor of the show takes a timeout is when the pace slows to advertise the author who is hosting the episode. But in spite this, it's a compelling show that easily holds its own both in entertainment value and in educational value; even while facing fierce competition from similar shows like "Body of Evidence," "Power, Privilege and Justice," "The Investigators," and "Forensic Files." I could almost effortlessly describe it as the second-best show on truTV.

Watch it some time. Unless you're a hard-nosed spam hater, or are simply too squeamish around re-enactments of violent crime, (or a killer likely to feature on the program yourself); you won't be significantly disappointed, if at all.
