Storyline

Forensic scientists work with a variety of methods (i.e. computer technology, anthropology, entomology) to solve crimes which would otherwise remain unsolved, through finding seemingly obscure clues such as tire tracks, bullet fragments and hair samples and then putting the pieces together. Interviews with forensic pathologists, cold case detectives and victims families show the process entailed in each case. Three separate cases are spotlighted in each episode of this series. Written by W.B.

Nice Show
11 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I was younger and this show was just starting I remember watching it the first time. I was a little freaked out by it but it is a good show. I used to watch it every Tuesday Night with my family on the Discovery Channel and I loved how the re-enactments were so precise. Its a cooler version of AMW. It basically takes America's Most Wanted and adds forensics science and autopsies. This show really uncovers its clues from the body of the victim or the examination of the crime scene and the case sort of builds up from there. This show is also great because most of the cases shown....... about 95% Id say end happily or are solved. In fact I've only seen 2 cases that went unsolved. IMO This is how all crime shows or basically all crimes should focus on. The victim and the crime scene can do so much to solving a case. The narrator is gripping in delivering the spooky elements of these crimes. I also like how these are real crimes and real investigations which adds to the spooky vibe. I would pick this show over AMW to get some crime investigations. I'll keep tuning in.
