I believe during one of the previews for 48 hrs; it has the Houston skyline in the background. I'm not sure because I kind of glanced at the TV at the last minute. I've been watching it all day lol

The First 48 - A&E TV
I agree it's not good for Houston's image. I watched it and was very sad and thinking if a move there was a good plan.

It's pretty much evident that any large city is going to have crime. It just happens to be on TV. If you move here expecting everything to be all nice and safe. Think again. You should have done your research.

However, the Houston one sucks anyway. I like Memphis and Miami. (sucks Memphis is not part of it anymore).

Default Memphis First 48

Me too. I like the Memphis team: Mason, Mullins and Lundy are my favorites.

I spoke with a HPD officer about the First 48 Hours filming in Houston. He said that the city of Houston would not allow the show to film in Houston with the HPD. However, harris county and the sheriff department does allow the show to record shows in the parts of Houston that are outside the city limits, but are in harris county.

Until I see differently I will assume this is true. I've seen shows in harris county, but I have yet to see a show based on something that happened inside Houston city limits, involving HPD.

I don't think this show will affect Houston's image too badly because one, people have common sense to not move to the danger zones and two, other "great" cities have had this show to film there. Americans and people in general know what the deal is: there's good and bad parts that comprise a city either good or bad.

Sounds about right. I'm shocked most people haven't realized that they're basically taping Houston. Just abouit every episode I've seen, I saw in the paper or news first.

-The kid killed working at the taco stand off the north freeway near canino. He was shot and killed by some 18 year old. Harris County Deputies caught him after a ho,e invasion over near the hardy toll road,after a chase he shot and killed himself.

-The elderly killed over near Katy in West Houston. She was 70-something,unloading bags out of her car and some guy randomly tried to rob her after trtying other residents. I think he didn't get anything. That one really made me mad.

-The guy who came out of his house when his neighbors ( who ran drugs ) were getting rob and confronted the thiefs with his pistol. Only there were 3 of them and they had and AR,Shotgun and pistol. He was killed unfortunately.

-The kid killed off Tidwell when he went to see his ex girlfriend,but her new guy ( who had threatened to kill him ) followed through on his promise.

-The other kid shot and killed in a drug deal I think off Tidwell as well. I think. They were looking for a girl named China since she brought the shooter to the scene.


Man...there's been alot of episodes in Harris County, going back to 2009 at least. If you don't know what county Houston is in you wouldn't know where they are filming.

Atlanta has done the same thing I see. Last week I saw First 48 DeKalb County. My first thought was, why don't you just say Atlanta ? While a majority is in Fulton, when I saw DeKalb I didn't need a map to look it up

But....on the other hand....I could see why a city wouldn't want that exposure. If you watch the show you probably think Louisville,Memphis and Birmingham are the baddest cities in the entire country,lol

Perception is everything sometimes. Smart move by the city of Houston.

Birmingham and Memphis are pretty bad, though. Their murder rates are probably top-10 in the US (possibly top 5).
