    I am a very loyal and huge unsolved mystery fan I have watched the show all of my life and watched the show every week. I even memorized the unsolved mystery phone number. I never missed an episode if I could help it. I watched the show since I was 7 or 8 and through all of my teenage years. I absolutely love this show

  • John Wilkes Booth

    6.0
    In 2009 the show did a part on Booth saying he got away after he killed Lincoln. He did, but he didnt go where they though he did. He went north to Mass. where he stayed with my father inlaws famly. Then when they though it was safe they moved him to Alabama where he stayed with the Claspell family until he passed away in the early 1900s. he was layed to rest next to my inlaws great grandfather. My father inlaw has pictuers of him with his family members over the years and letters to prove it.moreless

  • A show that changes with the network it's on. Maybe it should of ended after the CBS years.

    Ah, Unsolved Mysteries. Used to watch it with the parents in the late 80's/early 90s. I enjoyed the more parnormal stories.. Aliens, ghost, what have you, and the early episodes often had at least 1 story in the paranormal range. Once the show left the major networks and moved to Lifetime, the stories focused more and more on missing person, miracles, and other female aimed stories. The show slowly died, and I can see why I rarely had intrest in these made-for-Lifetime-women episodes.



    Now it has been brought back through Spike TV..and for 175 more episodes? Well, I was excited to find this out, but after watching most of the first 4, and seeinf articles that Spike aiming at typical stereotype macho-man audiences will shift the focus to "more action based stories"...or in the viewers terms...murder, rape, murder, robbery, murder, stalker, violence. Hmmm...I hope they reconsider..apparently they think people that will watch the show now are "too young to remember the original broadcast show (I'm 25..trust me, I remember, Spike), and would never watch it on Lifetime (If you like a show..it shouldn't matter what channel it airs on tv viewers"....wow....SpikeTV at it's best...



    The show needs to feature more of a variety of stories like the original NBC and CBS versions..in short, I am, so far, greatly disappointed in the return of this show...maybe it was better off dead, but that's just one man's opinion.moreless
