Used to be "Medical Detectives"
9 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I always laugh when I see people say "Forensic Files" is "the latest entry into forensic TV" or "jumping on the forensics bandwagon" or such. The show started on TLC/Discovery Networks as "Medical Detectives" back in 1996. When it switched over to CourtTV, Discovery was still running some episodes so they changed the name. (Now all those episodes are re-labeled "Forensic Files" and are seen on Court TV.) In fact, the show still airs as "Medical Detectives" in many countries overseas. (It is also known, I believe, as "Crime Seen")

The show is in it's eleventh season of production. The show didn't jump on the bandwagon - it got it rolling in the first place!

If you watch "C.S.I.", many of the techniques (such as using alternate video treatments to show recreations, and showing different recreations of how the crime MIGHT have happened as the evidence changes), you can see that they watched "Forensic Files" while developing their show. They also used to get plenty of story ideas from this and other true-crime shows.
