Dramatic but functional
23 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

  • M. William Phelps as a writer is successful, but as a host doesn't work too well, he does create a dramatic stage for his own moral display, which doesn't to the series a lot of good. However you can imagine this dramatic tone appeals to a larger sensation seeking audience. His implying to solve these crimes at the start of each episode is a misleading suggestion since the series is just a linear dramatized sum up of known events that occurred and are suspect to be the work of uncaught serial killers. The addition of an anonymous serial killer as an adviser is completely obsolete, the questions are self answering and the answers are common knowledge. It seems to be added to the series as a sensational aspect and serves to thrill the audience. + The series does work for a larger audience and to bring the cases back under the attention of the public cannot be seen as a bad thing. Whether it actually has done anything for these cases is unknown.
