Trivia

Many re-enactment scenes for Homicide Hunter are shot on location in Knoxville, TN using real Knoxville Police Department officers standing in as actors. The vehicles, weapons, and equipment are the ones used by the Knoxville PD, but with "Colorado Springs" placed over the name. See more »

Goofs

In the opening montage, Lt. Kenda slips his automatic into its holster, but the hammer is cocked. - For an officer, that gun is supposed to be cocked when it's holstered. The error is you can see the safety is not engaged when the gun is holstered. See more »

The Anti M William Phelps
6 October 2013 | by evilpinklolitaSee all my reviews

True crime shows are my favorite genre. I've watched almost every show on ID. Some are better than others (much better) and Homicide Hunter is one of my favorites. The reason I call Lt. Joe Kenda the anti M. William Phelps is that Kenda is everything Phelps isn't: He is an excellent investigator, he is free of ego, and he doesn't exaggerate the story for dramatic effect (or to sell more books). He discloses the important details without getting bogged down in the trivialities of each case. The only criticism I have of this program is that ID doesn't seem to air many episodes. Maybe it's just my timing, but the network reruns the same three or so episodes repeatedly. I even set my DVR. I will set it again for the upcoming season, and hopefully I can catch more.
