Hosted by Robert Stack, this series uses re-enactments and interviews to retell the circumstances of, well, mysteries that are unsolved. Covering crimes, tales of lost love, unexplained history and paranormal events.
THANK GOD IT'S FINALLY AVAILABLE!!! I've literally been waiting for unsolved mysteries to be available on some sort of platform (even the collector's DVD box set - which is no longer in print, mind you) FOR YEARS!!! Release more seasons!!!
Unsolved Mysteries was the late 80's early 90's forerunner to the entire true crime narrated reenactment genre. Before Investigation Discovery Robert Stack's ominous voice-over recounted true crime tales underscored by an eerie synth soundtrack that surely was on the playlist of every ghost, serial killer, and boogeyman. Benchmarks of this series that fueled the nightmares of everyone brave enough to tune in included creepy authentic audio recordings, shadowy composite sketches, blurred witness faces, and scrambled voice accounts of crimes that will haunt you long after the criminal has been caught and served their time. These episodes are shown in their originally aired quality, and includes updates to several cases that have been solved since the series ended. Longtime fans and new true crime buffs alike will find this series reason to finally buy Prime.
Best Decision i've seen Amazon Prime Video make in a very long time ! Thank you for bringing the Robert Stack Episodes to us !! These alone are worth the price of prime to me !!!! Keep them coming !!!!!
IT IS ABOUT TIME!!!! Been waiting for this day forever, since I was a kid basically, since I am a 90s kid. The show started in 1987-88 I believe and i even remember late 80s watching this thanks to Robert Stack, the production, the music, and especially the cases. Stack was perfect for this part. He is an icon to me. Thank you to the company FilmRise for acquiring the rights since the shows own producers did absolutely NOTHING with since the crappy dvd releases in 2003-2004. Cosgrove and Meurer both were stupid not to capitalize on getting this show out on streaming long time ago. Thank you Amazon Prime Video for picking this up first. The STACK IS BACK 2017!!!
Wow we the fans have waited for so many years for this classic show to be made available in its entirety! I remember watching this show as a kid and it terrified me! This show is without a doubt an all-time classic and I now own the entire first season! I AM HOOKED! Robert Stack did an unparalleled job in narrating/hosting this show! The Farina shows are good but they do not TOUCH the Stack era episodes!
Easily one of the greatest - if not THE greatest - true crime anthology series ever made. It pioneered the way the general public interacted with hard-to-solve crimes and helped to bring much-needed attention to these cases. Robert Stack was an incredible host and made this must-watch-tv when I was growing up! Will be watching the entire run on Amazon from now on!
As a longtime, diehard fan of Unsolved Mysteries I cannot even begin to express how fantastic it is to have these original episodes available for streaming. Most of these segments haven't been seen in any kind of decent quality in 25+ years. Cosgrove/Meurer Productions really dropped the ball for the longest time as far fan service goes, but FilmRise has stepped up to the plate and knocked it out of the park. This. Is. Awesome!
I've been waiting for many years for the original Robert Stack episodes to be released. The box sets that were released around a decade ago were just a big tease to all hardcore UM fans. Major props to FilmRise for getting this done. They did a bang up job on the first season and I can't wait until they release the rest of them.
