"(Don't) Give A Dog A Bone!"
It hardly qualifies as So Nearly Perfect but, the narrative oddments aside - & where are these people on the subject of those crappy nbc/cbs/abc programs & the now-ruined Snapped in that regard? - BITB does air crimes that, lucky for them, escaped the clutches of that metastatic "dateline" or are not so well-known, given its focused subject. Several episodes are even eyepopping gasp-inducing terrors. My chief gripe with this production, which has become a staple of this now nbc dump site Oxygen - touting itself as "true crime 24/7" while farting out marathon hours of scripted network junk e.g. "Chicago PD - is its upper-lefthand corner information "banner" displays such as ACTUAL POLICE PHOTO/VIDEO or showing date/place, that get run over by that channel's idiotically oversized "tv 14" blocks that linger like anchovy breath (too long). The strange (& thankfully unique) asynchronicity of, e.g., SOMEONE'S NAME sliding in followed by "who they are" below it half a second later is an extremely annoying visual, but there's worse to beat crime documentary followers' eyes across the spectrum. But the pros of BITB outweigh its cons - something that cannot be said about the nbc/cbs/abc programs - & Miss Sadie is not so repulsive to the ear as for example that N. Morales; her hollering I can't tolerate for more than a few seconds! When it comes to delivering the goods (so to speak) on its dedicated subject, BITB holds its own - just like right now in this ACTUAL POLICE PHOTO of a recovered skull in a gloved hand. Chilling as an old icebox every time. When Oxygen dumps ALL that scripted trash & lives up literally to that self labeled "24/7" regarding the crime documentary genre, they'll be all the better for it - & its audience, the boobirds included, greater in numbers. "(T)hat's the kind of program I like!"
