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.

from the people who brought you The F.B.I. Files
20 March 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

from the same people who brought you The F.B.I. Files comes this series about the high tech aspects of solving crime(such as the use of DNA and fingerprinting)as well as forensic anthropology and psychological profiling.for me,this series is much slower than the F.BI. Files and less interesting.it is much more dramatic,with less action.and i found it much darker in tone than the F:B:I: Files.it gets more in depth into the science of crime detection,and less on the crime itself.i found this aspect a bit dry at times.still, it is well made and at times compelling.certainly if you're into the scientific aspect of crime and crime solving,you should check this series out.in North America,seasons 1&2 are available as one collection.for me,The Detectives is a 6/10
