The Depue segment was the final one? Talk about resting uneasy.
At the end of the Depue story, they showed a brief preview of the following week's stories which included the case of Pat Fagan who was wanted for abducting her son Brandon from his father/her ex-husband Michael who had been awarded sole custody. She subsequently turned herself in after seeing this preview. The update about her capture aired the following week with the first showing of her story, so it was technically "solved" before the episode even aired.

I always thought it interesting and kind of surreal to think that Dennis Depue watched the broadcast and freaked out, while in another part of the country, Pat Fagan was probably doing the same.

So dated.
I think that whole segment was brilliantly made, it's sort of like a mini made-for-tv movie. The acting in it was dead on, both the actor that played Kessler and the actress that played "Katherine" did great jobs. I also think "Katherine" herself did well with narrating the whole thing. Stack saying "salon" was kind of funny. And I'm glad that creep got caught.

In the Don Kemp segment, I always get a little chuckle from the way the sheriff says, "He could have been mentally distuuuuurbbbed."

Yes, the Kessler segment was hilarious in several ways. First how he smooths his way into the bedroom by buying himself and the woman he's tricking a king sized bed and the scene zooms out to the trees. And when "Katherine" goes to talk to him he responds in this really childlike voice, "I'm playing!" Also, the phone call about bouncing a check for $1,000 at the bar the night before made me crack up. What one Earth did he get there, round drinks for everyone all night?

Reading about Erik Kessler got me thinking about similar segments where guys wine and dine women and then steal their money. Sweetheart swindler, Mr. Waylond and others. Anyone else surprised that these guys turn out to be, well, not-so-great looking? I mean, the segment plays them up as these type of guys that the women might swoon over, but they turn out to be, as Borat might say, not so much. No offense intended, but I just thought this was weird.

It's all about charisma. Gals swoon for not-so-good looking guys all the time if they are confident and know how to sweet talk. Ira Einhorn comes to mind...Holly Maddux was way too hot for him. How else can the Lyle Lovetts of the world get lucky?

True no diffrent then say for instance your a good looking guy but cant hold down much of a conversation,how many women would be interested in you if you couldnt talk to them properly.

Harold Bell getting his ass kicked when he broke into a lady's house- that reenactment was hilarious in that he seemed so smug upon first walking in and then she just roughed him up. It was pretty crazy that she shot at him, too.

Fumbles should get an honorable mention as well.

Ah yes! On that note, I laugh every time I watch the sement about the Bicycle Bandit. Old fat man on a bike pedaling away from a bank robbery? Hi-larious.

I always chuckle a little during the interview with Amy Scott in the Stanley Gryziec segment, where she's talking about being chased by the suspects and trying to locate them with an officer after driving to the police station:

"But we never saw them again." (Beat. Eyebrow raise.)

I know he's a horrible guy and it was a sad case, but for some reason I always thought it was funny in the Sam Wodke segment when they're robbing the grocery store, and Sam fires at the soda cans as a warning and they all tumble.

Reminds me of the movie The Jerk when Steve Martin's character (who works at a gas station) has a crazed sniper trying to shoot him, and the guy hits some cans by mistake; and Steve's character thinks he was aiming at the cans, lol.

I need to sit with you guys and watch these over! I'm dying laughing here (and of course, not at the subject matter). I've watched a few of these recently and I am just so absorbed in them and I take them so seriously that I don't even look at any of the acting or other stuff. I would really love to get together with people and see the stuff that you guys see lol.
ETA, several posters mentioned the pseudo-Native American music in some segments. After thinking about it I realized that they had this cheesy music when talking about the South, the heat, small towns (the Audrey Moate segment is fresh in my mind but I know they've used that same music for other segments that take place in the south and they talk about the heat and stuff).

It would be cool if we could organize some kind of meet. A forum my wife moderates has had meetings before. She has gone to a couple.
