  • One of the most harrowing and eminently watchable crime shows on television.

    They say truth is stranger than fiction. With this show, viewers get to experience the cold, hard reality of work on a homicide detail. The cameras follow everything from the discovery of the body, to listening in on the autopsy, to the ruminations of the detectives, and finally to interrogations and arrests. It's a dangerous and brutally honest job. The stories are shocking and frankly depressing-- but that's the truth. You get to see what the police have to go through in order to close a case. You also learn to take seriously the trauma sustained by the victims and their families. The title comes from the fact that it is within the first two days that homicide detectives have the greatest chances of solving a crime. You can't help but wait with eagerness and tension for the cases to be resolved. Easily one of the best reality shows of all time.
