great show hope it runs forever
23 March 2002 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I had previously written about how much I enjoyed Quincy and this show certainly reminds me of it. A great episode every week about the wonderous advances in science that allows us to put people away. It wasn't so many years ago that a lot of the perpetrators on this show would never have been convicted. Each episode is crisp and compact and the guy who narrates it has the best storyteller voice that I have ever heard. The only thing is that this show makes you realize that there are some pretty sick people in the world who do terrible things. One episode was about a woman named Peggy Carr whose soda was poisoned by her nieghbor. He gave her a poison that destroys the central nervous system and is one of the few of its kind for which there is no effective antidote. She died the most painful death you can possibly imagine and her whole family became sick as well.
