This is one of the best crime shows. I never get tired of watching it. Real, raw and sometimes graphic but it's our country. This is about as real as it gets. No actors , no dramatizations , no bullshxt. Much respect to the detectives and the victims.

With shows like CSI and Law & Order, you forget sometimes that these crimes actually happen to real people. I only just started watching this show but my emotional reaction to it compared to the fictional shows was really surprising. KNOWING that the dead bodies are real and seeing the real reaction of their loved ones compared to a scripted one is completely different. Nice to know that all the scripted crimes drama that I watch hasn't completely desensitised me to actual human emotion and pain. But horrible that this happens to people on a daily basis. I have decided that I watch this show not for entertainment but to prove that I am human and not totally dead inside. Kudos to the people who have to investigate these crimes every day. I know I couldn't do their job,seeing what they see, for very long that is for sure.

even after watching so many episodes,I still manage to watch a new one and still be surprised at how wicked people's hearts can be, I don't watch any of the detective shows on TV. One day I started watching the show and couldn't stop..10/10

This is my favorite true crime series. It is very saddening that so many people are murdered, much of the time for petty or ridiculous reasons, but I think it's important to try to understand why it happens. In other words, what motivates people to do such horrible things? And what kinds of situations do people get involved in that may increase the likelihood of becoming a murder victim? Of course, a lot of the times it's just bad luck or being in the wrong place at the wrong time or trying to help someone else in trouble. Another thing I like is that the series also shows that murder detectives are real people who experience emotions much like anyone else and especially have difficulty facing the grief of victims' loved ones, although they must keep their emotions in check to some extent for the sake of performing their duty.

Although, I do first this show interesting and often riveting. I am torn between my enjoyment and the reality that people must die for this show to be produced. I believe it is important for our society to see what detectives must do in an effort to solve cases and who our counter-parts are who commit these crimes. All in all I find this to be a good show and worth watching.

I enjoy watching the adventures of these thugs, Little Boobie, Debo, and who can forget Royal Cola. Seeing them go on their journey of becoming big name "killas" is a real edge of your seat feeling. TNB Forever!!!
