ID's best show
23 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Admittedly I am a hardcore Investigation Discovery geek, and have seen almost every show multiple times. This is my favorite ID show. It is exceptionally well-done, from the music chosen for episodes, the resemblance of the actors to the actual people, the respectful yet all-engrossing way the stories are told, the camera shots and settings. The way the cases are told from the victim's POV makes you see things in a new light, even if, as another reviewer noted, these are familiar stories that we've seen before. It's the most empathetic of the ID's shows that I've seen. Of course, warnings apply for graphic depictions of dead bodies, etc., so not for squeamish or young people. Highest recommendation!!!
