Been there, done that, seen the crime scene tape
25 July 2012 | by lasherxlSee all my reviews

Final Witness is no more than one of those crime witness shows you see on Tru TV or the old ones that were hosted by Robert Stack back in the 90s. Someone dies, you get bad actors playing the parts of real life folks, a smattering of the real DA's and detectives who worked the actual case.

What could be resolved in about 30 minutes is dragged out for the full hour, rinse and repeat with the next episode. Yes, the fact that it's true stories its awful for those families and of course the victim, but as far as good television goes its a bit sleepy.

No it doesn't totally suck, but neither does it excite.
