Excellent! Robert Stack is great too!
18 March 2001 | by (Lake Isabella, CA) – See all my reviews

Unsolved Mysteries is a marvelous show. Robert Stack is the host of the show and provides several infomation on each case. It roams to missing people, past history, legends, treasures, wanted fugitives, criminals, robbers, murders, burglers, UFO sightings, helping animals, helping lost love ones, ghosts, paranoia, amnesia, big foot sightings and much more. Just a great show. To be on the bright side. Unsolved Mysteries has solved over 400 cases of missing people, lost love ones and wanted people all over the world! This show helps alot of people. Containing over 95% of true evidence, Unsolved Myseries uncovers the depths of many events world wide from past to present. It is good that people who have infomation to call the number after the show is over or to visit their website. This show is sad, great and scary all in one. Not to be missed though. But it ended in 1999. It had been playing since 1987. Sometimes it does several re-runs on Lifetime.
