1) I wish they would do more of these collections so we can remember our favorite UM episodes.
2) The discs include director/producer commentary for some of the segments. This is a great behind the scenes look at the making of the show.
3) My favorite episode from this collection, "Texas Most Wanted" is interesting for several reasons. It's a very well-done look at a horrible crime, the story of the murder of Larry Dickens by a violent pervert. The episode led directly to the perp's capture. The interviews with Dickens' mother and sister were very sensitive and well-handled. This is "Unsolved Mysteries" at its top-notch best.
BTW, take a good look at the actor who played Larry Dickens. That's Matthew McConaughey.
Anyway, the episodes have already been listed so I will only give details on the ones that I feel stick out the most. You may remember some of these cases from when they originally aired over a decade ago....
Trailer Terror-A couple is shot dead and their home torched. The couple's daughter and her friend were home at the time but their bodies were never found. No one knows if they were abducted, ran away, or themselves committed the crime.
Journalist's Murder-An investigative reporter is found dead in a hotel bathtub. At the time he was investigating ties between organized crime and government personnel. Many use his fear of blood to refute the police ruling of suicide.
Scared To Death-A chilling story of a nurse who supposedly experienced seven years of inescapable stalkings before she was found dead, tied up, and drugged. Some say she staged the who ordeal and in the end killed herself, but other disagree.
Unicorn's Secret-Case of the hippy guru and woman-abuser Ira Einhorn, who killed his girlfriend and kept her body in a Closet for a year and a half.Read more ›
Watch these videos with the lights off.
The release of the series on DVD is a real treat for fans.By catogorizing the releases (Miracles,Ghosts,UFO's,etc) fans can get a collection of the stories in their fields of interest.
While the DVD "Bizarre Murders'has many cases ,I am disappointed in the fact that there is no other special features than audio commentary on select segments by the show's producers.There also have been some bizarre murders that the series profiled over the years that were not included on the DVD.Maybe the producers will make a second volume of this particular catogory.Read more ›
