It is like "Cops" with a microscope.
Over ten murder cases are explored in this three DVD set from the original series that appeared on A&E Television. From the initial 911 call reports, the CSI investigations, the insider look at the Homicide bureau internal discussions, the followup forensics chemical, weapon, and cell phone usage evaluations; the coroner's report, the crime scene neighborhood canvassing, and the actual police interviews of witnesses and suspects the series is one of the best compilations of actual Homicide bureau police science we have ever seen on television.
The detectives range from rookie first-year officers to seasoned veterans that serve the Richmond, Virginia and Cleveland, Ohio Police Departments. The production values of each show are outstanding, and utilize the latest in 3D and graphic reproductions of both the crime scene analysis, as well as the forensic lab work performed to solve these difficult cases. The series even includes a yet unsolved random and tragic killing of a Cleveland resident by a perpetrator using an AK-47 high powered rifle......exposing the frustration of these officer's everyday experiences in their job as Homicide Investigators.
The only disappointing aspect of this show that bothered me was that ALL the case studies featured murders involving inner city minority victims and suspects. I would have preferred seeing a wider perspective of homicide cases instead of taking the easy path of covering lower income demographic examples that sadly occur here in America today.Read more ›
With that being said, I almost prefer "Crime 360" over her sister shows "The First 48" and "Forensic Files." "Crime 360" is basically a combination of both "The First 48" and "Forensic Files," with the investigation narrative that makes "The First 48" so intriguing and the look at the forensics aspect of the crimes that is the staple of "Forensic Files."
Graphically appealing with the 3D-images of the CSI scanners and with detectives that, although you don't get as familiar with them as you do on "The First 48," are just as passionate about their jobs, "Crime 360" is a great show that shows the inner workings of solving crimes.
The show takes through real murder mysteries and follows the detectives working the case. You'll see how lucky 911 calls, digging through garbage and needle-in-a-haystack-looking can pay off to big rewards when trying to find that ellusive thing called justice.
If you are at all interested in how police do their work, I'd take a look at this. You don't have to love CSI or anything to appreciate the real work done by these brave, thoughful and persistant detectives of the law.
The first two episodes feature detectives taking the lead for the first time. You'll see mistakes and blunders. And you'll also see veterans of the force doing great work to get the job done. Sometimes they catch they bad guy, sometimes the case stays open.
I enjoyed every minute of the show. It gave me a great insider's view of how a homicide investigation is done.

I love true crime series, but to base one on a technology that gives you a 360 degree photographic preservation of the crime scene is a pretty bizarre premise. Read morePublished 21 months ago by Catherine Mary
