In this series, John Walsh, the father of a murdered child hosts this show that illustrates crime stories which have lead to the capture of hundreds of fugitives from the law. With as much luridness and accuracy as possible, various crimes are dramatically recreated with an appeal for any viewer with information as to the crime and the perpetrators to call the show and the authorities and help the cause of justice.

The Fox network cancelled the show in 1996, but reversed the decision because of a public outcry from viewers, politicians, and law enforcement agencies. The series was off the air for six weeks before it was finally reinstated. See more »

This show is truly one of the best, John Walsh must be one of the hardest working people in television today. The basic idea is to help capture criminals by profiling their cases and give facts about their habits in hopes of having a viewer see the person. I watch this every week, just in case I see one of the people profiled. Also profiled are missing children, which Walsh obviously put there on his own since his own son was murdered. It's hard to match this show, it's truly a great series. It's great that it's still broadcasting new episodes since its debut in 1988, a real sign of excellence.
