Absolutely the gold standard in crime-doc series to which all others should aspire. No dramatizations in Snapped, which are lazy, cheap, presumptive and insulting filler by producers who just don't give a damn.

Same excellent female narrator throughout its whopping 13 seasons thus far. This narrator is evenly-modulated in her tone; not overly-dramatic or tabloidy like Susan Lucci, no sing-songy overdone fake accents like Swamp Murders and not exhausting like having to listen to Paula Zahn's never-ending roller coaster of modulation.

Snapped is jam-packed from start to finish with pertinent background leading to the crime, brief childhood review of killer, multiple interviews from a wide variety of people who actually have something relevant to contribute, facts of the crime, reporting of key trial events and final resolution of the case. Tight editing brings it all together with remarkable flow.

Where Dateline/ID spends 15 minutes of every episode probing devastated family on how the murder made them feel, Snapped does not. Of course murder of a loved one is the worst possible horror a family can suffer, but everyone already knows this. Repeating the same sorrows show after show adds nothing to knowledge about the case, thus Snapped does not force the audience to endure such absurd and insincere questions to survivors.

Since I like "Forensic Files" and "Body of Evidence," my sister said she thinks I'd like "Snapped." If this episode is representative, then this must be a great series.

A Black woman blows away her white, male neighbor and then absconds from authorities for six years. What's interesting is the "snapped" question. Did she snap because she filed bankruptcy after being unable to pay off student loans? Did she snap because the victim's white girlfriend accused her of having a sapphic identity? Why would you become a murderess when you are a Black woman with a chemistry degree who could have been a role model to young Black females interested in the sciences?

Though the killer wrote of her hatred for vanilla people, many of her traits were similar to those militia men in the Northwest. They mention the Columbine killers and her name in the same breath too. She had books on making grenades, hiding from authorities, etc. She produced an anti-white manifesto to boot. Two things really surprise me. First, why/how did she have a gun from jump? Second, her prejudiced writings said stuff like, "We Black women should rise up against white people!" So what was her view of Black men? Why did she not state her love or hatred of that group?

The work was a bit unsatisfying in two ways. First off, it repeated the facts twice. This killed time and suggests the show makers didn't have enough info for an hour-long show. Secondly, she hides out for six years and the program never really explains how she did it. That's a surprising feat for anybody, but Black women only make up 6% of the US population compared to 33% for white males. She lived in Colorado which doesn't have a large African-American population either.

The killer had an AWFUL hairline.

This issue was also covered in a recent episode of "Cops." A woman is caught on tape arranging to have her husband killed.

In R. Kelly's "Trapped in the Closet," he sings, "This girl could win an Oscar!" You will think the same thing here. The guilty wife cries her eyes out when the police trick her into thinking her husband is dead. Even though her husband later reveals that he learned about her plot, she still lies her butt off. The husband says something that those desperate ppl who try to get reality shows don't realize: "My life is too boring to turn into a TV show!" Also, the husband looks a lot like Nick Lachey.

Unfortunately, some women think they can lie their way out of anything. However, some need to brush up on their Shakespeare and remember who happened to Ophelia and Lady MacBeth. From what I heard, this fact pattern was an internet sensation. It can def'ly provide a source for conversation when chatting with someone on the phone.

Lots of sordid scandals and criminal activity. For those of you who like crime television, this show is an entertaining foray into the psyche of women who kill. The premise focuses on one-time killers rather than career criminals. Hence the title "Snapped." As an aside, what is it about women who snap that fascinates viewers? I don't see the same focus on men who snap in crime television.

Why. Why. Why. why do people STILL not realize that your whereabouts can be tracked via cell phone towers.

The best amd most horrifying episodes are when the woman poisons someone. He's dying of cancer.. but its a slow cancer.. he's not dying fast enough. Think I'll put airbag poison from China in the beef stew. Oh and then I'll claim battered wife on the stand.

The whole scenario is sad. A mother, possibly Latina, disapproves of her daughter dating a Black guy. The daughter and her BF then kill her. This actually includes interviews from the imprisoned daughter.

Personally, I think it's highly racist when non-Black parents get upset when their children date Blacks. For this reason, I NEVER watch "Dog the Bounty Hunter." However, when people hear of Black males that play a role in non-Black females committing matricide, it doesn't nothing but make us bruthas look bad.

You might as well watch this episode. But if you are chocolate-y, with a carrot between your legs, the facts behind this tragedy may really eat at you.
