I didn't know which board to put this on, so I might as well just put it here.

Did anyone ever watch this show when it was aired, or read up on these unsolved mysteries and try to figure out what happened?

I been going through the DVD sets lately, and I always love reading up on these things.

My favorite unsolved mystery is probably the one involving a girl who was on the phone with her boyfriend when she was abducted, and the guy chases after her and blows out his transmission in the process. She's never seen again.

Usually if they're solved it's a completely random perp (like Brook Baker, the college student who was killed by a random perp despite all the theories about her journalism), because it's easier to focus on the possible suspects from the getgo and possibly eliminate them in the time frame.

I used to love the show as a kid but mostly just the parts with an alien/paranormal slant to them. Everytime I see or hear the word "dramatization" I still think back to that show because it's where I first became aware of it. I remember asking one of my parents how they had video footage of this stuff if it was an unsolved mystery.

I love it, and still catch the re-made version on Spike TV with Dennis Farina hosting. I'm pining for new episodes, but I guess I'll have to settle for what they're giving me. I do have most of the DVD sets as well.

I have a few faves, including the Circleville Ohio letter writer and the person who was constantly attacking the old couple, the Wackers. I'll probably edit this when I think of more!

the Wackers one was great, pretty sure they were staging it all but still weird.

Another couple of good ones I remember are Dick Hansen (the guy killed by another driver and his lady friend is convinced it had to do with his 49ers license plate) and Kurt Sova (the young man who goes to a party and is found dead five days later in a spot police already seached. Accidental death of course!)

I still haven't seen the Circleville writer one.

The Circleville one seemed like it was on a lot during the Lifetime days. Here's a great message board with tons of discussions about cases:

Yep I love that site, every time I watch a mystery I immediately go there to read a topic about it (cos they pretty much have a topic on every case)

It really sucks how many are unsolved still to this day. =(

The most surprising one I've seen solved was the woman in Florida who got murdered after placing an ad in the paper for her apartment. Her name was Beverly McGowan I think and they found her body in a ditch off the highway all cut up or something. Really sad case and they caught the bitch that did it, who then killed herself.

Yeah, it's the same cases that aired on the original, cut down for time and voiced-over by Dennis Farina.

I had no idea, thats pretty cool. I'll see when its on. Saw a few more crazy cases on youtube earlier, like this woman who ran away to start a new life and they found her car in the woods looking like an accident, with her wallet and keys in her car, but she's gone. I love this stuff a little too much, I think.

Loved the show. I think that show gave me the most nightmares out of any show. I am still shocked my parents let me watch it.

Stack died several years back. After 9/11, but before Don Knotts. OK, gotta look him up

2003 (knotts died in 2006)
