A Quick Tip by drifter51

I was a huge fan of this show during its initial run on NBC in the late 80s and early 90s. Robert Stack was the perfect host. I had no idea that the series has been revived and is now running on Lifetime. I stumbled on it just the other night. I thought that Dennis Farina does a pretty good job as host. I will watch a few more episodes before passing judgement.

I'm also a huge fan of this show! I actually never watched it while there were new episodes; I would only watch the reruns daily on Lifetime. I didn't realize that it was completely revived with a new host though. Will have to catch it!

I was also hooked on this show. Robert Stack proved to be the perfect host. Would watch it again if it came back.

First broadcast in January of 1987, Unsolved Mysteries is one of the longest running programs in television and the inspiration for dozens of imitators. It is also the first television series with an audience interactive call-to-action requesting viewer tips to help solve actual cases.

Each episode consists of five segments profiling real-life mysteries and an update of a case which has been solved, often thanks to viewer tips. The segments are drawn from a variety of different categories: Murder, Missing Persons, Wanted Fugitives, UFOs, Ghosts, The Unexplained (Paranormal), Missing Heirs, Amnesia, Fraud, among others.

Viewers are urged to visit the series website, unsolved.com, if they have information that might help to solve a case. UM staff will forward the information to the appropriate authorities.

All of the segments have been updated with current information and will continue to be updated with new information resulting from the broadcasts on Spike TV. The host-narrator is Dennis Farina, star of Law and Order, Get Shorty, What Happens in Vegas, and many other film and television credits.

Over the years, Unsolved Mysteries has profiled more than one thousand cases in 260 episodes. 47% of the cases featuring wanted fugitives have been solved thanks to information from Unsolved Mysteries viewers.
