Just the facts, ma'am
5 January 2017 | by Ed-ShullivanSee all my reviews

As was the famous line that Detective Joe Friday stated in many of the 1967 crime/drama TV series Dragnet episodes, so does this new television series Murder Made Famous provide only the facts in some of the more famous murder cases in recent years.

This series focuses on providing a combination of actors re-enacting some of the events that resulted in a high profile murder and supplemented with actual archive video footage of police interrogations of some of the actual criminals.

As is the case with the very first episode which focuses on the female killer Jodi Arias who murdered her former boyfriend salesman, Travis Alexander on June 04, 2008. We are provided with actors who portray murderer Jodi Arias and her victim Travis Alexander outlining how they first met, and subsequently became lovers. When Travis Alexander decided to break off their relationship the episode then outlines how Jodi Arias premeditated the calculated murder of her former lover. It also outlines how sloppy she was in her attempt to cover up her heinous crime.

The series is delivered in a documented style mixing scenes utilizing actors while mixing in actual crime scene footage and/or police video interrogations with the actual criminals as they did with this first episode.

I enjoyed the factual presentation of the events leading up to the murder(s) and the subsequent court proceedings when the guilty are brought to justice. This is a very professional depiction of the actual crimes/murders committed and depicts how callous some of these murderers who live in our neighborhoods can become.
