I loved the variety, before it got silly. I always thought some of the supernatural stuff was really cool. The Kecksburg UFO is one of my favorite segments. But as we've discussed before, the cool/fascinating turned into the dumb and laughable. If they choose to do truly interesting supernatural stories, I'm all for it. At this point I can't believe they would risk the future of the new show by doing a whole episode on fertility statues or the sexual magic of chocolate...

It may have faded away on its own but these ridiculous segments certainly accelerated UM's demise. In fact, it was so rarely aired here in Nova Scotia by the end that I was shocked to find a never before seen episode after Sept 11, 2001: prior to that, there might have been one episode a month if I was lucky.
Just to be clear, I do believe UM "Jumped the Shark', they just did it differently than most programs, and it's really only noticed in the supernatural and high-profile case segments. The majority of the true crime segments continued to be good right up until NBC cancelled them.

Right?

The supernatural and the legends were what made this show what it was, it contributed to that intangible quality it had to scare the ever-loving crap out of you.

If they were to do an episode of the quality of say the Victorio Peak treasure mystery, I'd be all in. If they spent 40 minutes on a rock with the power to grant strip mall success I'll lead an armed rebellion.

So are they revisiting old cases or doing new ones?

As I understand the announcement, it will be all new cases. The main change seems to be that each episode will be 1 case rather than multiple cases. So think Forensic Files (without the crime being solved of course), or Disappeared.

I am curious as to if they would update any old cases that are solved. Iím meaning like, okay Dale Kerstetter is still missing, but letís say the new UM premieres with all new cases. Then sometime after the premiere, the Kerstetter case is solved. Will they film an update for season 2 of the new series?

The single case format could prohibit this, but then they could also include updates as bonus episodes at the end of a season I guess.

I think they'd be smart to do that. But it all depends on whether the new producers want this to be a totally new show or not. I think that would be a bad move if they ignored the previous version as it may alienate some of the fans.

I hope they bring back the creepy locations where the host is standing and the fog.

Well the premiere canít get here fast enough! Just rolled through all the seasons on Prime again. I Hope they can find a way to reserve 5 minutes to old cases should they be solved. Maybe they can title it from the Archives of Unsolved Mysteries. Might have to some quick editing of any present cases they are doing.

I would like to see them do bonus episodes where a lot of the cases featured on Unsolved Mysteries that were unsolved at the time of airing were later solved other than a quick update blurb. One episode could be dedicated to the East Area Rapist. Another could be about the murders of Jay Cook and Tanya Van Cuylenborg.
