The FBI Files

Show Summary

Through re-enactments of high profile cases involving the FBI, the show reveals how agents solve these crimes behind the scene. The show producers work with FBI special agents and examiners in high tech crime labs to portrait each case accurately. You will learn how the FBI protects the lives of Americans and brings the most notorious criminals to justice. The FBI was originally established to address crime that covered cities, counties, and spread across state lines. The country needed a federal law-enforcement entity to do those investigations. And over the years, as the country has grown and as the world, by the same token, has grown smaller, the FBI’s mission has changed to meet the various threats. The show is hosted by James Kallstrom, the former director in charge of the FBI's New York office. Along with The New Detectives, the FBI File is one of Discovery Channel's highest rated series. The FBI Files is also available on international televisions. Globally, key outlets include RTL 2 in Germany, Channel 5 in the UK, TVDanmark, and the Discovery Channel in the UK, Europe, Asia and Latin America. Selected regional showtime: Discovery Channel (U.S.): weekdays at 3PM EST / PST Discovery Asia: Friday at 11PM Discovery Australia: Wednesday at 7:30PM AESTmoreless

    You have to be careful of people you don't know.And you do know.Don't ever give a person your house keys.Don't ever let a strange know where you work or live.Do some back ground check on them before you get involved with them.If you are out in with your girl friends and a guy ask you to go somewhere with him say no.And leave with your friends.If you are getting off work late at night wait inside and walk out together with your co-worker.Then go home.If you think somebody is following you pull into a drive way in let them pass.moreless
  • Personal favorite of mine, just watching 5 minutes of it makes me watch all of it.

    The suspense and re-enactment in this show are pretty well thought out, I understand everything that was going on between the killer and victim (usually i don't). The show is pretty well thought out.



    The very beginning of the show shows the crime scene and then goes to the way beginning of a few days before the attack, and at the attack, then the investigation, once they have their suspect the interview him, once they get enough evidence, they send him to court, basically in chronilagical order.



    Bottom line CSI and Law & Order fans will probably love this show, from the amount of suspence it has.moreless

    FBI Files profiles some interesting cases, often cases you may have seen in the news. It seems as though they get the full cooperation of the FBI, as many agents and investigators are interviewed - mostly in a story telling fashion. As the story unfolds we are blessed/cursed with re-enactments. That is one of two weak points of the show, in my opinion. The other is the fact that they often drag out the story to fill up the whole hour. Every time we come back from commercial the narrator sort of sums up everything we've seen so far. As you can imagine, by the end of the last commercial break, the lead in can be quite long.



    Oh well, every show can't be perfect.moreless

    The FBI FILES

    This reality show sometimes has its good jucy files but sometimes Im like "who cares? change that!" But sometimes it gets interesting and you whant to know who is the murder and why, because, and PORQUE they did it. Allthou its good to watch this so you can be prevented and dont do a big mistake that youll regret later.
