We all know hindsight is 20/20, but these comments completely disregard the information the people had at the time these events occurred. Callie would have had no way of knowing that Steve would return and hurt her dad. Charles' friend didn't know he was going to disappear forever after not letting him into a family gathering. And Oliver Munson certainly didn't know that other witnesses set to testify against the same person he was supposed to had been murdered prior to being able to do so.

And these comments don't even get into the bigger victim blaming territory that we see with plenty of other cases, but they're still very annoying to me nonetheless and putting blame in the wrong places.
Plenty of armchair quarterbacking in regards to a slew of cases. Many of which involved situations that we've been in ourselves countless times and wouldn't give a second thought about. But because these people have information AFTER the fact, they go back and blame/judge the victim.

It would be like a woman going to the bank to deposit a check. Then she notices a robber in the booth next to her who shoots up the place. Sure enough, you'd have some person on the internet saying, "that lady was so stupid. She'd be alive today if she didn't go to the bank."

Not having psychic powers is enough to get you ridiculed by some people.

Just like people blaming Kari Lynn Nixon's father. Because someone less than two years away from being a legal adult apparently shouldn't be asked to walk a few hundred yards to the store and back in a minuscule town with no violent crime.

I have the opinion that if you put yourself in a dangerous situation, danger could possibly happen. Obviously people like Oliver Munson or Kari Lynn Nixon didn't know they were in a dangerous situation and I REALLY hate victim blaming.

The Frontera Prison scandal was ridiculously overblown by UM and Betty Thompson.

I don't know if it's an unpopular opinion per se, but I've always felt like Scott Hill never intended to be found, and perhaps were it not for the UM segment he would've continued living his new life away from his family.

I agree. Ditto for Alex Cooper.

I enjoy Seasons 11 and 12 (Lifetime) more than 8-10 (CBS), mostly because of the selected cases being pretty interesting.

I've been rewatching the later seasons recently, as I've said before, in some ways they're a little depressing (obviously massively reduced budget, increasingly frail sounding Stack) but the cases on them are genuinely interesting (I just watched the one about the disappearance of Lenny Dirikson... a case that's rarely commented on here but is utterly baffling).

Additionally, the last seasons of the show just feel "snappier" - segments contained less of the endless irrelevant background details and discussion of investigative dead ends that you would find in the earlier seasons and the ratio of paranormal/lost loves segments to far more interesting crime/disappearance stories seems to have been significantly reduced.

a few unpopular opinions off the top of my head:

Chip Broussard is legit the funniest interview ever on UM because he is so obviously lying. It's a one take, no edit, with him staring into camera and it makes it even funnier that it lingers a bit on him when he's done.
Nobody magically finds a baby in the desert or on a train. They were undisclosed pregnancies for various reasons.
I cannot watch the Anthonette Cayedito segment.
Tommy Zeigler is guilty, but everything is so corrupt in that town, and heck Florida, we will never know the real story.
Mike Reimer was a victim of the same killer as Diane.
I believe Doyle Wheeler.
I do not believe Sarah Powell.
I'm unsure about Jon Grundhofer but think the story is kinda fishy.
Tony Lombardi's death was a suicide. So was Charles Morgan's.
The Las Cruces Bowling Alley massacre will, sadly, never be solved.
