A good spin-off of a popular Unsolved Mysteries segment
16 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There was a segment on Unsolved Mysteries called "Final Appeal" in which cases of inmates in prison or on death row who might be innocent were profiled. In the fall of 1992, the concept was expanded into a weekly half hour series. The show utilized reenactments of the crimes or other key events as well as interviews with witnesses, prosecutors, defense attorneys and the appealant. Robert Stack hosted and narrated each episode. Unfortunately, the ratings were poor, and the show was canceled after a run of only six weeks. During it's short tenure on television, the show did lead to the release of one innocent man - Tony Miller, a young musician wrongly convicted of armed robbery. Some of the Final Appeal episodes were recycled into episodes of SPIKE TV's Unsolved Mysteries with Dennis Farina, and at least one episode was shown on Lifetime with any references to it being a "Final Appeal" program presentation edited out. As a result, few viewers are aware of this short lived but important series, which is truly a shame.
