Anyone else watch the show Sat. nights on CBS at 10pm? Thought it might be a good Idea to start a thread where we can discuss the cases. If you guys like the idea, great! If not, well, I guess it will fall to the bottom.

I watch all new Datelines religiously. Do you have the ID (Investigative Discovery) channel? The older episodes are on there pretty much all the time. I used to read People magazine just for the crime story in them, that is how I know just about any (older) crime profiled on any crime TV show. I am annoyed that all the different shows profile the same, tired crimes, but with their own formats/story-telling. There is enough crime for more new shows to be made. They need to make shows out of the crimes that don't get constant media attention.

Yes and it is quite addictive.

If you have the ID channel they run episodes on there daily. Of course, those are all older episodes.

I would like to do this, I watch 48hrs Mystery every Saturday and I'm addicted to Investigation ID and any true crime show! Been watching, reading for as long as I can remember.

Right now I'm watching Investigation ID about the 4 kids kidnapped and murdered from the Detroit area in 1977. You know I'm thinking maybe a woman did this or a woman was an accomplish? It seems so clear to me because of bathing the kids and the washing and pressing of the clothes! Especially back in the day, sorry but men typically didn't do laundry or child care. Now it would make sense for DNA purposes, but in 1977, I think not! I wonder if the profilers ever considered this possibility.
The case has similarities to the Sandra Cantu case in CA.

Several weeks ago I wandered upon the ID Channel ... boy am I hooked!! I am a night owl and sometimes it's just reruns ... the Betty Broderick story has been on three times in the last couple of weeks.

I like the older Dateline shows. Before CNN bought Court TV I always watched that channel with Forensic Files and Cold Case files. Now that it's TruTV it's just a bunch of junk reality shows at night that I don't watch.

One of my favorites was City Confidential with Paul Winfield narrating. I liked the way he introduced and told all about the town and then got into the case. He passed away in 2004 so all I see now is reruns.

I've never watched 48 hours.

You should give it a shot. It's one of the better crime shows IMO.

A great voice ... he made you want to move to the town until he got into the crime.
