Sick!
24 December 2005 | by (the lower depths) – See all my reviews

This show is very well-acted but is basically one plodding & unoriginal plot after another stretched out with a plethora of pseudo-technical forensics jargon delivered with many pregnant pauses & meaningful looks.

What separates these shows from the hundreds of run-of-the-mill Agatha Christie rehashes & homages that British TV churns out are the ghoulish & highly detailed recreations of carved-up cadavers & hideous burn victims. There's even a disclaimer at the beginning of every show warning off viewers too squeamish to witness recreated autopsies.

It's obvious that the monster makeup aspect of this programme is the real draw which I find pretty sick & morally reprehensible. It exploits the plight of badly disfigured people (see the episode about the train accident) who have to live out their nightmares with much pain & little hope of recovery (to say nothing of the convenience of makeup removal at the end of the day).

Sick.
