User Reviews

great show, sarcastic scripts, interesting and entertaining
23 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

City Confidential is a wonderful show that unfortunately has lost something with the death of its original narrator, Paul Winfield. The heavy sarcasm in the scripts suited his voice beautifully. However, the show's formula goes on without him. Each episode looks at a major scandal in a city - a scandal that usually belies the wealth, beauty, or old money residents of the area. What makes the series a cut above is the history given of each city and a profile of its typical residents at the time of the crime. And the narration! "Why, you could see the sweat roll off him as if it was a July day on the Bayou." The episodes also include interviews with residents, reporters, and witnesses.

All in all, City Confidential is a fascinating series. The new narrator is less intrusive, which says that the producers did not try to replace the flamboyance of Winfield. Probably a good move, because they couldn't have done so.
