Default Do you love those cozy in-a-house settings? (furniture)

One thing I love about Unsolved Mysteries as an adult (but didn't care when I was a kid) is that there are some segments where it's very quaint and cozy. I watch these segments more sometimes just because I like that particular short scene. For example -

1) Dale Hyde - the segment begins in the kitchen where it shows the counter-top space between the kitchen and dinette area. Dale brings over a slow cooker full of hot food prepared for the family. (side note: isn't he nice?!! kidding, but women do love a man that cooks, just not a man that cooks AND beats her children severely.)

2) Joe Owens - Seattle area. I used to live near Seattle long ago with the military. So the geo location of certain segments I get extra attached too and like it because I can relate to the area (not the case). At the beginning of this case Joe Owens' nephew in another state is talking to ole Joe on the phone. The nephew's bedroom looks like a motel room to me! I like the setting - he's in bed and the lighting is nice from his lamp. Some prefer darker lighting, but I like it brighter even tho it's bad for me as I don't want to go to sleep with bright lights such as lamps, tv, laptops since it keeps me up longer.

3) Forgot his name - Arizona? Before I searched this segment's page on sitcomsonline I just new someone had already mentioned him drinking coffee and that it resembled a coffee commercial. I love this scene! Even tho I bet he killed his wife - the ending of the segment is so cute! It has that pretty background music/noise and him not only grabbing his ready cup of coffee but also taking it over to the snack bar AND looking out the window. I never saw a snackbar right next to a window. My parents' snack-bar is in the middle of the kitchen and living room.

Do you have any segments that you like because of the setting or room or furniture?

This is funny, I like this thread because of the way some of the UM segments make me feel...it does give you that feeling of comfort. First a comment and then I will add a couple of mine:

* Joe Owens: YES...I always, every time, thought his nephew was in a hotel room when they show him...not sure why, maybe like you said, the way the bed, lamp and mirrored closet are all arranged.

1. Bobbie Jo/Annette: I like this one anyway, but love how it's winter in Breckenridge and just seems cozy.

2. Kurt Sova: I just like this one...something about the way it was filmed makes it just feel warm.

It's hard to say, but I am the type of person who is extremely affected by warms/colds as far as colors/films. Not sure if I am crazy or what, but when things make me feel cold/uncomfortable, I don't like them as much. Hard to pin down what I mean, but I'm sure some of you understand

3. You’re referring to Stephen Marfeo, who I am 100% convinced killed his wife.

Doreen Marfeo--that part with her husband Stephen totally looked like a coffee commercial! Especially with the whimsical music.

I think this is a great idea for a thread. A lot of the furniture and home settings do look cozy. I also like a lot of the small town shots, but that's probably because I'm not from a small town so I have a wistful opinion of what it would be like to live there (from a big city POV).

I agree with the Bobbie Joe segment.
At first I was thinking of that prison wardens wife who took off w the prisoner.
Wrong case. Yes, I too love the winter scenes esp in "winter storm" states like Colorado and North Dakota.
That native american car acc happened in winter.
I love UM's winter cases even more so in the winter while i still livie in upper Minnesota area.
I like and watch Fargo every winter a few times.
And other winter movies.
Even Rudolph and Frosty shows.

I also like the small town shots. Like in New England and Texas. In addition I enjoy the "just outside the city" segments like the 3 wa state cases. Those are out in the country yet only 3 or 10 miles from town. Seems like many out in the country segments involve couples who got murdered. WA state ones, etc. Funny thing about um is many segments seem like the house was in a small town or just on the skirts of a city: aileen conway segmnt was in a good sized city yet 2 me it seems like her house was in the country by itself lol. That made it even more scary to me as it takes longer 4 police or fire to arrive and u have no neighbors to run too!

Anna Anton/Greg Webb for the ambiance. Several other "small town" segments.

Me too. The beginning of the Judge Fairbanks segment shows some shots of Newport, New Hampshire. Looks like a nice place to take a stroll on a spring day while eating an ice cream cone.

Thanks to Google street view, I've snooped around some very quaint yet pretty small towns featured on UM like...

Lyons, Nebraska (Anna Anton)
Ronan, Montana (Father Kerrigan)
Clinton, Missouri (Angela Hammond)
New Rockford, North Dakota (Kathy Bonderson)

All very charming. I highly recommend a look.

[Keith Reinhard in silver plume, co. Didnt Stack say there was a PLUME of smoke in Conway case at beginning? Funny word: plume. I like keiths tiny town which is extra small. Those 200 people towns are nice n warm feeling too. Love the scenes in small cafes here where "everybody knows 1 another". When watching i wish I had that tiny town tiny cafe setting where i can go after work!

Okay, so this thread is exactly why I liked UM. I think when you are young you picture crimes happening in some creepy big city. I grew up in a small town in Canada, and the general idea was that the city has drugs, the city has crime, here you are safe. Wrong! Look at the cute setting Joe and Mattie (Teek) Harvey lived in, and then their niece Cheryl Holland killed them!
I also like how certain cases have come to light because of UM. For example, I would have never heard of the Wendy Camp case if it wasn't for UM. Who would have thought all that crazy could have gone on in rural OK.

This was another one of my favorite "ambiance" segments. I've tried to find the location of their store/gas station on google with no luck.

Those big and small indoor malls from the 80s n early 90s bring back memories esp the small indoor malls like the one I had in my hometown of 11,000 people. Our indoor one later changed into an outdoor mall. (Never thot of this: guess it was an inner belly button and later an outtie.) I disliked the big change! Yea, the magic rock's small indoor movie theater gave me good vibes. There are still many big indoor malls yet many other big indoor malls closed. The little ones never stood a chance!

Also um showed many cases where an arcade was in the mall or in a gas station. Oh that was fun in the 80s to mid 90s. Our bowling alley had a mini arcade and 1 gas station had 5 arcades lined up on a wall. It was near my cousins house. I lived near the bowlg alley so we were even lol.

There are YouTube channels dedicated to this sort of thing. I went down a wormhole of these videos awhile back, and felt warm with nostalgia.
