Default Multi-platform addition to the Unsolved Mysteries redux

In the same vein of the thread, but a different kind of response ...

I hope that the producers and Spike TV are going to revamp the UM format to take advantage of technology that was not available back in the late 80's/early 90's.

It would be cool for viewers to receive text messages on their cells or "crackberries" each time there is an update on a case (but here's the hook, we only get a glimpse of the update but have to watch the show to find out more). The UM website needs a complete overhaul and needs to be more interactive and where cases ACTUALLY get updated.

There should be links on the UM website to give more visibility to the doenetwork, charleyproject and other missing childrens/persons website.

A scrolling banner for any active AMBER alerts would also be useful and important.

My 2 cents

Yeah, coincidentally I just read one of those Ohio trucker serial killer threads that was bumped tonight which contains that info. The sites I found out about the original I-70 Killer from both apparently need to be updated.

UM definitely needs to review all their unsolved cases and update their website with current info on the cases that require it, just like some of these other sites that feature serial killers which didn't name the original I-70 Killer.

There are many old UM cases where I can't find any info about them and that needs to change too. They should at least have someone working their site. It's like they made that site during the new Lifetime episodes to coincide with their broadcast in 2001-2002, then when Lifetime cancelled the new episodes, they just abandoned the website for 5 years. Hopefully now they'll be able to hire some researchers to handle the task.

The text messages would be kind of silly and sort of unnatural to the flow of the show, in my opinion. I do like the Amber alert idea and think that one of the producers look to this board for some ideas since it is the best board for UM on the net. I think I speak for most UM fans here when I say the best segments had the sinister music, were less immediate like later episodes and more atmospheric like early episodes, and filmed with actual film instead of video to give the re-enactments that grainy docudrama feel to them.

The text messaging bit sounds a bit strange at first, but I know TV producers are willing to adapt their format to integrate the new technologies (this 'mot du jour' in the buisness is called "multi-platform").

I agree with you a 110% that the old segments shot on film were much more engaging and awesome. I hope that they stay away from the cheap digital cameras and go the HDTV route and add a grain-filter, on this one.

Yes , I believe so Crystal. I am curious as I was involved in investigation of those, I did not recall them that way. I thought maybe something else had occurred I had not been made aware of. I personally do not see a definitive link.

there are probably some good conspiracy stories that could be aired with all of the political things going on in the world today. I know that's pretty vague. but If anyone can think of some paticular stories that would be good. On a brighter note they could have shown the phoenix lights part two.....but come to find out the latest escapade was no more than a fraud. apparantly someone tied flares to balloons and let them off into the night sky.

There are a lot of recent missing persons cases that could be featured on the show. Ghosts and haunting will probably be feature. A few years ago I saw a UFO story that was featured on either the History Chanel, Discovery or TLC documentary. The story was about a family in the South either in the 1950's and 1960's claimed they saw a ship land near the house and they saw winged alien creatures. I think they said the creatures left and the ship was gone. Later on people in their small town accused them of being mentally ill, alcholics and many said that the family mistakenlly took the creatures they saw as being monkeys from traveling circus. The documentary interviewed two brothers that are still living. It would be interesting if UM did a story. Another story that could be featured the McPhearson UFO story which is a claim that a family captured video images of landing and seeing aliens.

A segment on Clinton Road could be really cool. Here a link about it's mysteries

I've said this before but I think UM should have done an episode on Johnny Gosch. Jacob Wetterling would also be interesting.

I would to see Updates on any current or upcomming parole decisions on some of the convicted felons featured. There are many convicts featured on UM that will be up for parole on 2008 and 2009, it would be interesting to get the outcome of those hearings without getting names and using google for more info.

I think that a Mothman segment would be a great idea. It certainly has a very strange story.
