Background makes the difference
4 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The element that distinguishes City Confidential from its sister show, American Justice, and so many other true crime shows, is the background on the setting of the crime. Sometimes it's a whole half hour before we know who's been murdered (usually it's a murder) because we're learning about the environment of the crime. Sometimes the background takes a shorter portion of the show, but it's always fascinating to learn about small towns and big cities across the country. And the cases they choose to highlight are generally interesting.

I thought Paul Winfield's narration (from the beginning till his death in 2004) was as close to perfect as possible. The new narrator is fine, it's just that his voice is not as resonating as Winfield's. I'd love to hear James Earl Jones narrate -- but I doubt the producers could afford him!
