People would not have been happy either way. We had Dennis Farina who actually did a good job narrating. Regardless of the same old segments and graphics and other stuff, he wasnít bad. And dressed sharp, too. But people still complained. Now thereís no host and new cases, different format, and people are still not happy.

These are some of the same people who had difficulty sitting and/or staying awake through the 45 minute episodes. Or tuned out after 30 mins. What can really be expected but complaints? These folks need to load the old episodes on YouTube, play them at double speed and there; only have to sit for 20-25 minutes.

Thank you. Boomers are very very good at hating change, as well as complaining and never being satisfied. It cracks me up that these people donít have the attention span for a 45 minute episode when this is the same generation that complains about young people having short attention spans.

Boomers?

If that’s how you need to rationalize this go for it.

And of course they get defensive when you call them out.

By that logic, you forgot to add that younger generations were offended that the show didn't feature a narrator who was a gay, trans, overweight visible minority. Gee, generalizations are fun, aren't they?

(Also, not a boomer.)

Yes. And there's usually more than a germ of truth to them.

Like spending 3/4 of an episode on a body search when that's not what's at the heart of the matter. I need them to not be so cautious about being sued and present some theories and really go into those theories. Maybe even reenact some of them.
I agree. If they could get Steve French to narrate the series, just let each segment be varying lengths depending on information, i.e. some long, some shorter, I think it would be better. I do like the reboot though.
