Real Mystery Thriller Better Than Fiction
15 January 2019 | by tabunoSee all my reviews

16 March 2015. With so many mystery thrillers out there along with reality television, it becomes pretty crowded and nauseating to watch it all. But here comes a docudrama that is firmly rooted in re-creations based on authentic presentation and in doing so, makes this television series among the most engaging and thrilling that the medium of film can offer out there. Each episodes contains documentary like precision with the reenactments carefully following dialogue that captures the reality of the moment making each episode vicariously compelling. The storyline is well explained and executed, the human element well presented along with an emotional connection, and the scientific road to discovery all make this CSI-like experience all the more intriguingly better than fiction. Highly rated for its appealing performances and substantive content that pulls the audience directly into the storm.
