A. His bit about "the smell" he'd "never smelled before" and that he "hoped was coming from the garbage" is suspicious to me. If he'd never smelled that particular odor before, why would he "hope it was coming from the garbage"? I always thought that was a weird thing to say.

B. His statement about "saying a prayer" over Tamiyasu's body. Perhaps this is a sweeping generalization, but I can't imagine too many people discovering the body of their week-long deceased friend and subsequently calming down and lingering around long enough to say a prayer. I can see perhaps a religious leader or cleric doing such, or someone that generally deals with death on a regular basis---but I just can't see an "average joe" like Don Dixon being able to maintain his composure, especially when I heard the recording of the 911 call where he sounds absolutely hysterical.

C. The melodrama. His words are so often infused with this dramaticism and sentimentalism that make him sound forced and difficult to completely believe.


If it didn't seem like half the things he said were total lies, I might feel sorry for the guy.

I agree. If I found my friend dead for a week, there is no way in hell that I would be composed enough to say a prayer. The funk alone would make me reeling.

I think the part in the sleepwalking segment where the girl runs full speed through the screen door and also into the wall were pretty funny. I LOL'ed when they showed them again in the new eps.

I remember watching that segment with my brother during one of the Lifetime airings and he cracked up laughing.

I know I constantly bump this thread, but I can't help it. It's too good.

In the introduction to the segment about the two teenagers who went on a tri-state killing spree beginning in Texas in 1988, our late host is on the "police station" set. Instead of just standing there in the room at the beginning, though, the scene opens with an empty room, and then RS opens the door and immediately delves into introducing the case. I don't know why it's so funny, but it is. (Speaking of that segment, I have the same Iron Maiden "Purgatory" tee shirt one of the killers was wearing.)

From another extremely not-funny segment: the "crazy from Detroit" in the Kurt Sova case and his exchange with the record store manager: "Well, you might as well take it down. They're gonna find him dead in two days. Nobody's gonna know how he died." Now, certainly the dialog itself is very much unfunny. But the actor's tone is hilarious. He sounds so amateur. And the way he walks through the door and gives the guy exiting out a look up and down like, What, you wanna start somethin'?

And of course, the actor who played Richard Church and the "Well, good luck on your math test!" bit. As much as people find the way we (southerners) speak hilarious, a lot of us feel the same way about our northern-dwelling friends. The way he pronounces "math" is hysterical to me.

I forget the name of the victim but I remember a case where a girl and her boyfriend went to visit her mother for a weekend. During their stay, he ended up killing her after she caught him going through her mother's purse. By the time the mother came home, she thought her daughter and the boyfriend had already left. Then, over the next few days the house started to stink HORRIBLY and the mother couldn't figure out where the smell was coming from. She eventually found out when she discovered her daughter's body under her bed.

The entire segment was disturbing and sad of course. And thank GOD the bastard eventually got caught. But I remember letting out a little chuckle towards the end of the segment when they reenacted a scene where the boyfriend meets up with a friend of his after the murder.

The friend asks why they broke up and the boyfriend admits that she was getting on his nerves, they fought all the time so he killed her. He actually admits to what he did. The friend, understandably got very angry and said...

"Listen, I don't care if you're my friend. If you really did what you just said you did, you're not getting in my car and you're not welcome in my house."

The boyfriend then pauses for like 3 seconds in shock and finally answers, "I got you. I was just kidding." And the friend easily starts laughing and answers, "You got me."

The timing was just so awkward and stupid I couldn't help but laugh. How gullible can a person be?

Yeah that was really cheesy when the guy said, "Just kidding"...it was such a redundant pause and it just came out of nowhere. And the friend saying something ridiculous like, "You're not using my car" because someone just admitted they murdered someone is even funnier.

How about the reinactment from the Harris Todd segment (his ex-wife Lee Barnett abducted their daughter Savannah). The actress who played Lee Barnett was right on, but the actor that played Harris Todd was kind of humorous. The part where Lee was serving Harris dinner & she starts complaining how they never go to restaurants anymore and she then goes totally ballistic on him! She starts hitting Harris & he says in a sheepish voice "calm down". And then she's still screaming & hitting him, he says "I can't talk to you". I don't know why, but that part cracks me up.

That was a good one...and then he sits next to his daughter at the bar and starts weeping. His daughter, Brenda, then raises up her hands in embarassment and walks out with her friends. That whole bar scene is priceless!

One case was when a guys was charged with poisoning his wife to death and then escaping from the mental hospital he was held in. They found him in Dublin after the Irish cops had asked for the guys fingerprints due to 'standard procedure' (the guy had called the police to report a robbery).

Can't believe it was that simple. Too funny.

I don't remember the episode but it involved two fugitives, one had this silly afro and 70s sunglasses. The guy with the afro threw a spray bottle at the cop car. That always made me laugh haha. My father included hahaha.
