The show was wildly ahead of its time. In this show the viewer is the newest member of the homicide division and has a veteran member of the force as their partner. The murder is committed at the start of the show and together you and your partner solve the case.
What made this show so unique was the first-person perspective. The actors all spoke to "you". You interviewed witnesses and suspects.
At the end of each episode all the suspects were rounded up and your partner spoke about each of their various motives, chances, and in the end whether or not they were guilty. There was even a gag once where a TV producer is a suspect has an idea for a show and is pitching it to a network on his cell phone. The "show" he's describing is "Likely Suspects".
