Trivia

"The Killing Game" about the life of killer Rodney Alacala was the last story by the well respected Harold Dow. Dow passed away as a result of complications from acute asthma during its production; he had arrived at a hospital emergency room and an inhaler was later found on the floor of his vehicle. Dow's son was brought in to finish narration of the episode and 48 Hours dedicated the episode posthumously to Dow. See more »

Wonderful documentary crime drama!
2 August 2014 | by (California, United States) – See all my reviews

These are one of those shows that keep you hooked until the end. The suspense is also really well done. The best time to watch this is at night, it's really a great experience. You sometimes don't know whether the cases get resolved at the conclusion.

It is a intriguing show that is edited in such a sure-handed way. You hear different sides to the story, from the authorities to lawyers and from criminals to the friends & family of the victim(s). There's a lot that goes on within that hour!

48 Hours Mystery and 48 Hours on ID are the ones I like the most but the original 48 Hours is just as great as its successors. The genres are mixed so well, like drama and sometimes horror, and I'm glad there are so many to watch. If you don't have/use DVR for your cable, you can easily find full episodes on YouTube and the CBS News website. Give it a watch and you'll want to know more about the story in each episode from beginning to end.
