Could be better if it was done differently
America's Most Wanted was great, but this is really hard to watch. The crimes are disturbing enough, but the actual techniques used in production are overkill. So it makes it hard to sit through. It's definitely too slow, but things such as super-closeups of people's mouths talking, lots of slow motion and dramatic disturbing music, and scenes really suggestive of sex and violence mixed with this, just make it unwatchable for me. The crimes are dark enough. You don't need dark, slow production techniques on top of it. It was very disappointing because I had seen it advertised originally and thought it would be a good series. In flipping through the channels I saw it tonight, and they ran two episodes where the fugitive in question had already been caught and killed. Yet they are running the episodes again.
I applaud his efforts to find these criminals and put them away, but he might have a better chance to do that if the show were more watchable. The production techniques seem like they would be more appealing to people who were a little bit disturbed than to the general TV watcher.
