Season 39 : Episode 31

Show Summary

Among the most recognized and revered television newsmagazines, 20/20 was ABC's answer to CBS's 60 Minutes. Though some stories were humorous, light-hearted and sometimes frivolous features, the meat of "20/20's" programming was investigative reporting many times exposing corporate, medical, educational and governmental wrongdoing, incompetence and criminal negligence and reports on news events of the week from (often) different angles than was seen on the nightly news. Though most of the reports proved to be factual, some were heralded as sensationalist; others led to allegations of libel while at least one story later proved to be an embarrassing hoax. The show's current co-anchors are John Stossel and Elizabeth Vargas.

    • A Comment about Crime in the Dorm

      9.0
      The other day I was watching 20/20 about a rape in a college dorm. In the beginning, the boy got 25 years in prison and then the sentence was lessened. My opinion is when you see the boyfriend and girlfriend are staying in the same room at night, and the girl took some sleeping pills because she couldn't sleep, and the boy was massaging her to get her relaxed to sleep, it's natural that a young boy feels something and does the crime. They are not a 70-year-old couple sleeping in the same bed. Of course, it's a crime, but I don't think he should get a heavy sentence for it. Maybe just probation and expulsion from the college is enough. He should not get the sex-offender stigma for the rest of his life. When we grew up, we were not supposed to stay with anybody, not even cousins at night.

    • Pretty climactic

      8.0
      Love the way that the show always manages to keep itself climactic and it really feels like a Hitchcock film in real life at a perspective. It really has you be on edge many times each episode. Really worth a watch.
