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 »

User Reviews

 
This show is addictive.
10 November 2011 | by See all my reviews

Considering the production crew of this show has a tight group of actors you'll see some actors performing multiple roles throughout the series. That doesn't take away from the fact that the episodes are gripping because they're real. The multiple factors that go into someone becoming a criminal, the close shaves while on the lam, the police who risk their lives in pursuit and the dumb luck some of these criminals have is just astounding.

This isn't just another cop show. It's a detailed look into the variations of crimes, reasons why some people end up as criminals and the chances they overlooked, how innocents get caught up in their lives, the technologies involved which keep on improving.

This is a show the whole family and community should watch. You never know who is in your neighborhood who might be on the run, you never know what might happen in your life that has you up against the wall where you end up on the wrong side of the law.
