Trivia

The "reenactment" portions of the show contain many actors and actresses that appear in other episodes as well, although in different roles. Some cars also make appearances in numerous episodes, most notably the black and white police car without local markings so it can be used to represent any police department. See more »

Are you kidding me?
24 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Um, 5.5? WTF? This isn't the greatest thing I've ever seen, but it deserves far better than a 5.5. I mean, seriously, what's wrong with it? I'm giving it a 10 just to counteract some of the bizarre hostile reviews this thing has gotten. Oh, and apparently I have to fill this review with 10 lines of text, so here goes. This is a crime show that contains reenactments of real life criminals who ran from the law. This show does a very good job portraying how the criminals committed their crime(s), how the people associated with them reacted, and how they were eventually caught. The show does a very good job portraying this and DESERVES HIGHER THAN A 5.5 ON THE IMDb SCALE! Thank you.
