The low rent in Woonsocket during the time of the Doreen Picard murder/ Susan Laferte attack.

Lack of cell phones is an obvious one. Disappearances now would have family and friends trying to text/call cell phones to check in on anyone who goes missing. That wasn’t a thing in the 80s and early 90s. The other one is prevalence of hand drawn composite sketches. They’re still used today, but seems like many departments favor newer technology and computer generated profiles of the suspects, for various reasons. I think today we would see many more of those and fewer sketches of the suspects

The music, decor, style (clothes, hair), low-res film, mention of stuff that today would get flagged by the PC police (and vice versa).

I think one of the weirdest things I've noticed is how old everyone looks. What I mean by this is...say they show someone in their early twenties...but she looks older than I am. Or people in their mid-thirties (my age) who look like they're in their fifties. I'm not certain, beyond hair styles and clothing, what exactly it is that causes me to not be able to properly judge the ages of these people...but it occurs in almost every segment lol

It's a very common observation. I'm virtually a carbon copy of my father but looking at photos of him when he was my age throughout the years he ALWAYS looked older. Not just to me but everybody. I looked at 30 the exact same as he did at 20.

Cigarettes and bad food will do that. We're healthier than our parents.

But no, I'm kind of leaning toward the smoking/etc, as well. It's just weird seeing it, as it's not something I really think of much. But I've been going through a depressive bout and comfort-watching the entirety of UM, in order. So it's something I've seen A LOT lately.

I'm with ya on watching the show for comfort reasons. I'm a single Dad trying to buy a house for us and the stress/depression mounts quite high. UM is always there for a great distraction. It sucks you into another world.

It really is. You don't necessarily HAVE to pay attention to it (since it's been watched so many times), if your mind is going, but if you do, maybe you'll notice something or think of something differently than before.

As for the depression/stress...hang in there, man...

We've mentioned this in other threads. The best examples being Mary Ann Perez (who was 36 when she disappeared) and Gail Delano (who was 34.)

What's even more crazy was when they showed an age enhanced photo of Mary Ann Perez, after sooooooo much time that had passed and what she would have looked like at the time of the airing of the segment. It looks like a senior citizen photo yet she would have only been 47.

I saw an episode last night from March 1996 that focused on the Oklahoma City Bombing (which wasn't even a year old at that point), Vince Foster's suicide note, and James Ellroy.

All just seem like products of their time. They were probably hot button issues then, but hardly anyone in the media talks about them now.

When Michael Drosnin said the Bible predicted "World War, Atomic Holocaust, 2000, 2006".

Oops.
