this show is pretty meager in terms of production, very splashy and annoying in terms of post (incredibly over-dramatic titles used very very liberally. Anyway I'm watching a 2nd episode online, pausing just to make a review inspired by the fact that this character being profiled, this feller who went missing in Colorado evidently liked the company of pretty women and liked to pahr-tayy. OK, so that makes it easy oh hell actually though it starts way before that getting annoying. This guy would like to come to work early and make the coffee and have his ritual bowl of oat meal so we get umpteenthousand shots of the durned coffeepot and these really annoying shots of the bowl of oatmeal. Evidently either production team will not settle for the P-poor resemblances managed by such models for this kinda show as "Unsolved Mysteries" (Cosgrove-Muerer) or else they couldn't manage to find anyone even remotely looking like the subject of the two episodes I watched, thus we have all these absurd headless coverages of these doomed individuals. I had to laugh especially in the oatmeal sequence because the poor actor did try to put as much as he could into it, tapping the spoon on the side of the bowl to settle the oatmeal into the reservoir of the tea/tablespoon. Anyway we get many many many many shots of the coffeepot, the oatmeal-in-action and then later comes that marvelous festival champagne for a benefit.
The fact is this show ought to be doing 2 unsolved disappearances per episode and the sloth of taking on only one with the limited material they've captured to put it together results in quite deadly television from which I was doomed to disappear before the end of either of the two episodes I attempted to view!
