No Need for the Inserted Spoilers in Every Episode
Great crime documentary save for one problem: Before every commercial break there's a run of upcoming scenes, and unless you're prepared to very quickly mute the TV and close your eyes, these will be spoilers. Viewers are supposed to be held in suspense. But when a "coming up" preview shows the person you LEAST suspect swinging a weapon ... that just ruins the suspense. We don't need the spoilers. I want to be sitting at the edge of my seat, wondering who's going to blow first. The inserted previews ruin this experience. I hope the director of this series sees my review. STOP THE SPOILERS!
Muting the TV and closing one's eyes isn't a practical solution. Sometimes I'm caught off guard, or someone else in the room has the remote.
