Up until a few years ago, I wasn’t ever really into crime-based shows. They used to scare me when I was young, and because of my fear of them I distanced myself from anything crime-related for quite a while. When I was in university I started to develop an interest in them, though, and now, I’m rather fascinated by them.
I noted a new series that was added to Netflix a couple of days ago called Unsolved Mysteries and, after watching the trailer, I decided to give it a watch. I learned from my fiancé that this show has been around for a while now, and while it stopped airing for a few years, it’s been re-booted, hence it appearing via Netflix.
I, for one, am very pleased that it has resumed airing.
There is one season of the show on Netflix at this point, with each episode running approximately 45 minutes to an hour. Each episode focuses on one particular scenario that is associated with crime that is simply baffling in terms of how the situation played out. It’s called Unsolved Mysteries for a reason.
Every episode in this series blew my mind in the context of the mystery evident in each case. The first, second and third episodes standout for me, personally, in terms of how bizarre the circumstances pertaining to the crime are, and I was on the edge of my seat for the entirety of each episode.
The people depicted in each episode are real, as are their stories. Their choosing to share their stories with the public is commendable, and it’s further an attempt on their behalf to get their stories out there in hopes of someone coming forward to help solve such mysterious scenarios. This show is intense, suspenseful, educational and emotional, and in my opinion, it is absolutely worth watching.
