Bill Kurtis hosts this documentary series that profiles criminal cases involving high profile murders, serial killers, and organized crime. Each episode culminating with the justice dispensed by the American legal system in each case.
Give me a car chase! Guns! Fast pace pursuits through dark woods! and most importantly.. BLOOD! O_O
What is really important, that the show isn't fast pace/doesn't get your blood pumping/not enough drama, or the fact that these guys are giving an effort to catch killers that are currently running free?
Seriously though, even if they spend an entire season to catch JUST ONE murderer that is running free, isn't that worth it?! Also, not to mention the emotional comfort that a, "hey, your loved ones hasn't been forgotten," gives to families affected by these horrible crimes.
True, not all of the cases are open-shut.. BECAUSE THEY HAVE BEEN COLD FOR YEARS! This is all currently happening! in real time! There is no "2 Years Later" transition effect! What this show does is put that spotlight right back where it should be.
I seriously doubt any of the people sitting behind a computer criticizing these efforts can say,"I put a killer behind bars, and finally brought a long awaited resolution to a family that had lost hope." Maybe some could say,"I saved a dog from eating chocolate!" or "I stopped a baby from swallowing a lego piece once!" Which, cool, really, both scenarios would have me totally pumped. I personally saved my turtle when I was 7.. he had climbed out of his tank and taken refuge under our mini fridge! Lost for DAYS.. He was so dehydrated an malnourished when I found him.. :( but I never gave up looking for him! :D Still though.. not as cool as catching someone that brutally murders people.. :/
I really hope this show gets the recognition it deserves.. some people should really reevaluate what they value as "good TV".
