    All Episodes Talk: Crime And Punishment

    I have to agree with so much that has been said here. I think that one of the things that gets me (and you see this alot on these shows with convicted perps whose family just refuses to believe the person did the crime) - is that after the murderer raped the older married friend and was CONVICTED of the crime, Jessyca's family thought he was innocent and the victim was a "troublemaker". Well, even in this age of Me Too (and this murder happened a few years ago), to get a conviction in most rape cases there has to be quite a bit of evidence showing that the victim was actually forcibly assaulted/raped. For years here in New York, you had to basically have had the hell beaten out of you before a rapist would be brought to trial. What, did the perp tell his friends that the victim "liked it rough" or some such shit and they believed it? Sad that Jessyca wound up his next victim and murdered because she fought back too hard. And on the Judgy McJudgy end of things, what the hell has happened in America where everybody has baby daddies/mamas and few have husbands or wives? Is becoming a single parent now a source of pride with all these dumb young women or what? Not talking about "morality" here but it's like the whole social fabric of society is changing and I can't really believe it's a good thing. I've seen the difference in my own family between the kids who have the married parents and the ones with the unmarried/never married ones. I just don't get it...

    All Episodes Talk: Crime And Punishment

    Yeah, another case to file under "the banality of evil". 2 guys who see pretty 13 year olds and commit rape and murder and then go on to live out their lives for next 30 years until DNA finally catches up to them. There was a case here in NY where the perp just got convicted during his second trial (the first one apparently had 1 or 2 holdout jurors and ended in a mistrial). The killer was a young black guy who was pissed off at the world in general and at a neighbor's blaring loud music in particular and stormed off looking for someone to beat up or something. He came upon a young woman jogger who would normally have her father with her, but he had hurt his back and stayed home. She wound up being in the wrong place at the wrong time and the guy beat the hell out of her and killed her. For no reason except his was mad at the world.... Now he can be mad for a good chunk of his life behind bars.

    @ AnimeMania - I get that the Sheriff & Boy Scout leader may have been stealing artifacts (and to be honest, I'm still not sure how Hynek figured that out), but the Boy Scout leader seemed to have had a real experience of some kind. Hynek is just going along with what the AF Generals want him to say, correct? Or did he really think the Boy Scout leader was a hoaxer?

    Documentary Now!

    This Gary Larson one was good. It reminded me of a doc I saw pretty close to 20 years ago done by some guy (nerdy middle aged guy with a family who looked well-off financially) who goes off in search of a writer who wrote a very literary book the guy fell in love with in the early 70s when he was a teenager. The author wrote the book, received critical acclaim, and then dropped off the map. I think the filmmaker did eventually find the guy who wound up working as a mailman or something similar. I just remember watching it and thinking the film seemed to be more about the filmmaker than the missing author. It was a watchable movie and I enjoyed it at the time but there weren't that many kinds of movies like that back then.

    Documentary Now!

    Another hilarious episode! I didn't really recognize Cate Blanchet - I kept looking at Izabella and thinking "I KNOW that actress..." but couldn't put my finger on who it was. And I agree! Fred was great as usual. And I totally loved that ending. Anybody know what real documentary this was based on? And what struck me was that even though it was a satire, the real modern art world is just as stupid as depicted in the show. Jeff Koons, anybody?

    Project Blue Book

    Caught up on an episode last night - this one was about the Boy Scout troop leader who disappeared for 2 days. So, I'm beginning to think that our "hero" Dr Hynek isn't really such a good guy at all. It looks like he was pretty quick to ruin the reputation of the Boy Scout leader and the cop - threatening to go after them for stealing Native American relics and pulling off a hoax. Granted, the real Dr. Hynek was pretty much employed by the real Air Force to do just that, but usually tv shows present the main lead as somebody to root for - our guy here is showing himself to be an amoral liar in my opinion. And I'm getting totally confused about what is going on with the Captain. Is the General playing him and trying to get back at him for what happened in a prior episode (something with the Secretary of Defense)? And it seems that the actor who plays Hynek keeps reverting back to an Irish accent. He sounds more Irish than American in most of this episode. I'm still shaking my head that this show got renewed. Must be the magic of Robert Zemeckis.

    This blows my mind. I guess the lead in from that on-going epic Curse of Oak Island helps. And I guess that not many of the viewers belong to our forum here because the posts are few and far between.

    All Episodes Discussion

    I can't add much to this discussion rather than going back to my old theory of Occam's Razor. That cop they interviewed from the original investigation had to be one of the laziest, most incompetent, lack of give a shit cops that I've ever seen on one of these true crime shows. How in the hell this guy kept his job is beyond me. So you just take the husband's word that his pregnant wife is suicidal without checking it out with a doctor or anybody else who knew her? My take on this is that the husband was probably angry that she was preggers again so soon after having the other child and that he didn't want any more responsibility. She may have been looking to leave because he had been acting like an asshole and she had it. She was apparently a stay at home wife and he probably would have had to cough up child support and some kind of alimony if she divorced him. He killed her either at the house or pushed her into the train and now he is free and clear. No wife, no kids. And yet again, it seems like he has a family that will stick by him no matter what. I hope these new detectives can nail the bastard's ass to the wall.
