You get a full idea about just how panic stricken Debbie must have been aboard a boat that was sinking in the middle of a freezing body of water. This segment was done so well you almost feel like you are watching the real thing and not a re-creation. Very suspensful, even though you know how things are going to turn out.
You are absolutely right. I didn't see this segment until about a year ago, and it haunted me for a few days afterward. The actress that played Debbie was AWESOME, although one could make the argument that her performance was a little over the top. Despite that, it was a well-done segment that sticks with you.

Default The best segments of UM

My personal favorite Um segments are of psychic Dorthy Allison, Kathy Hobbs murder, the disapperance of Kerry Lynn Nixon, and the murder of Joyce McClain. Also the very first ones that have never aired with the other hosts. I would love to be able to see those segments again.

I will have to add the case where Marvin and Sandra Maple abduct their grandchildren, Christy and Bobby Baskin from Murfreesboro, TN. I believe that the Baskins played themselves in the re-enactment scenes, the music is beautiful and the segment makes you feel what ordeal the parents went through. The update was so creepy too, especially the music mixed with the images of the home videos and the age-enhanced composites of the kids.

I think the Tami Lynn Leppert segment was really well done...you got a real sense of how she was losing a grip on reality as she began to fear for her life....the day she "lost it" when she smashed the window with the baseball bat thinking she'd been locked out was very well acted by the girl who played Tami....and the way they did her make-up to give the impression of her taking on a wild, paranoid persona was excellent too....

i also think the UFO segments were very well done...excellent use of computer tricks and special effects to really immerse you in the stories..in particular, the Roswell case, Hudson River Valley, and the Bentwaters case in the UK

I totally agree with you studster about Tami Leppert. That scene with her smashing the window with a baseball bat is very memorable!

Another one I'd like to add is one thats talked about very little on here. An older one about Jack Brown the guy from Michigan who was murdered in his office and no one seems to know why. I thought the actual shooting scene was very well done. The cameraman is panning around pretty quickly and there is total chaos and everyone yelling that made it seem very realistic.

There's just too many to choose from.

I would agree, though, with the posters who mentioned the I-70 serial killer. It had it all; good acting, terrifying music, and a creepy composite sketch.

There have been a few numerous repeat segments when UM was running on Prime here in Canada.......they'd get recycled about every couple of months and the cycle would start over again with the same cases.

One case that sticks out in my mind was the Edward Harold Bell segment. The actresses that played Larry Dickens's sister and the woman whose house was intruded on gave a really good sense of how much hatred they had for him. Plus, the actress that played Larry's mother did a good job of showing how devastated she must have been.

As mentioned before, other well acted moments are Tammy Lynn Lepperts actress smashing the window, and Pat Meehan's actress walking off into the moonlit field. Actually, all of Tammy's paranoid's actions were memorable, there was some great dialouge in that segment:

Tammy (glaring): "What are you looking at?"
Wing Flanagan: "I wasn't looking at anything."

Tammy: "Look out that window and tell me what you see."
Wing Flanagan: "Well, the neighbors got a new van."
Tammy: "Exactly."

I'd have to go with the segment about Jill and Julie Hansen. The actor that played Donnie Hansen was creepy, especially during the scene when he was being interviewed by the policeman. What really got me is that Julie Hansen survived the fire, but ended up dying in the hospital when an airbubble got into her IV tube & it stopped her heart. So heartbreaking, feel so sorry for the parents.

I love that segment for another reason...for Mafouz Haq's actor's angry yell when he stabs Todd in the re-enactment. "YAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!"

I'd say the worst one was the attempted poisoning of the husband by that b*tch who wanted to beef her husband up because he was to small for her fat ass. "That man, he took Jonathon!"

Thats funny.

I can't believe I failed to mention this segment has one of the most famous actors that UM has ever had on their show: Matthew McCounagehey. Is it just me, or does he get upstaged by a bunch of unknowns? Not his fault though, he didn't have that many speaking lines.

Definitely Richard's Rampage. The actress who played Colleen Ritter was amazing and it was just really well done.

Son of Sam is a close second for me, but it does have the cheesy moments of Berkowitz leering and the "what took you guys so long?" is pretty hilarious.
