I have always been a big fan of the show. It was a great true crime show that revealed in the cases it documented, that there are more than just one suspect and the most obvious is not always the killer. But after watching the present season in 2014 season I am severely disappointed. The narration is so bad I can only compare it sounding like a "Creepy old pervert talking in a loud whisper". It sounds cheap and is very badly executed that it feels like a different show. It is like the voice-over is for some dated porno NOT a program about murder. Every sentence is executed with a rather overblown sexual overture. How the producers could allow standards to fall so bad is beyond me. I do not see this lasting another season.
The show now feels sorely dated like it's an old 70's or 80's detective soap style show instead of a true crime re-enactment. I was so shocked when I tuned into the new season that I couldn't believe it was the same show or from the year 2014.
Whoever thinks a loud whisper is a great narration technique should learn that it only belongs on the casting couch. Avoid this show unless you love a good old 80's throwback.
