the one on bigfoot was stupid....hey UM guys bigfoot and the lochness monster was exposed as hoaxes long ago...they did a bigfoot type one after the bank robber tunnel segment....

also around the time of the bank robber segment was the one where some little girl sees what happens when she's about to die only to come back to life....hahah....it was so cheesy the way they did that segment.....

the fertility one sounds really dumb

lost loves are really boring too...who cares!

Siberiankiss why be so negative? I mean who cares about lost loves huh? I dont know I guess I just dont like the negativity. Yeah some of them are corny. Actually I do not think either big foot or loch ness monster have been proven to be hoaxes.

I'm not really sure about Bigfoot, but probably the most famous picture taken of the Loch Ness Monster, I want to say it was taken in the 1930s was proved to be fake a couple of years ago.

Some of the lost loves were very moving (the vietnam vet who looked for his nurse, the six siblings separated in oklahoma), but some of them seemed almost like a waste. Okay, I could see the one where he found his friend from the orphanage, but the one where the girl found her teacher? Not to sound mean, but there are many unsolved cases, murder or otherwise, which could have used the airtime more than this case, and other superfluous cases like this. There is something called the internet. Sorry if it sounds mean to some, but that's my opinion and I'm glad I'm not the only one that felt this way.

Good point about the woman looking for her teacher. But I'm not sure if the internet was nearly as advanced then as it is now. Therefore, the show could have been a last resort.

Wow, I g uess I am surprised. Well that was what I meant with the lost loves is yes, now these days the internet is a very good option. However your average person did not have the internet before probably 1996, 1997. Back then it was not as advanced either. Before the mid 90's almost no one had the internet. So the show was a last resort. As for the kid, well he is a kid, a lot of kid's have dreams like that. I mean yes he might have b een a chore to listen to but I think it is more an example of people being jealous that a kid that young could be so smart.

I really disliked the alien/alien abduction segments. There was one with the woman who "communicated" with UFOs with her flashlight. That one was really worthless. As for the "lost loves..." some were really good. Upthread someone mentioned the Vietnam Vet looking for his nurse; good example of why that kind of "lost love" story was important at that time.

Also didn't care for the "mysterious creatures" features. Most were rather silly....

In Outrage, Bugliosi pulled no punches. And I strongly believe that he won the debate against Alan Dershowitz in the UM segment. This was the same Vincent Bugliosi who prosecuted Charles Manson, and later wrote a book about that case (Helter Skelter).

I don't know if you have ever read Outrage, but Bugliosi did a good job in explaining why OJ Simpson got off scot-free. The book also explains how the verdict could (and should) have been different.

The OJ case, because it really isn't an Unsolved Mystery, now is it?

Even if you take that out of the equation, I still think they should have avoided that topic, because the OJ trial had been covered to death by virtually every single television show in existance. What new info could UM provide? Now, 10 years later, it holds up better, but we had already heard it all before.

This is the same reason I think there should never be an UM segment on the JFK assassination (if the show ever comes back). We've had 43 years of every possible theory. Do we really need ANOTHER segment on it?

Robert Stack: "Experts are wondering how the 12 jurors are able to breathe and walk when the not guilty verdict proved their brains don't function."

*cue the creepy music*

The segment aired in November 1996 (when the civil trial was taking place). It posed the question of whether the police could have planted the evidence. Vincent Bugliosi and Alan Dershowitz debated on the issue in the segment, which showed a variety of archive footage related to the case.

When that segment was later repeated (after OJ was found liable in the civil trial), it included a new ending in which Robert Stack noted that it was a case with "no winners" and "two families forever ruined." He then added the fact that OJ was acquitted of Ron and Nicole's murder, and found liable in their deaths.

Vincent Bugliosi is a legal rock star in my book. I haven't read Outrage because I really couldn't take any further info on the Simpson case, so I appreciate your take on it, Kane. What a great quote.

My vote for a segment that never should have been made is - and I hope I'm not making this up, or have the wrong show here - the one where a woman came home to find an intruder in her house and ran away to call police. When the police came, they were surprised that the intruder had not moved from the spot "he" was in, and eventually got close enough to realize that "he" was a mannequin.

Wait, was that Forensic Files or something?
