It’s official, updated episodes Unsolved Mysteries are back on Amazon Prime! If you are a fan of true crime, surely you can’t forget Robert Stack’s trench coat, the theme music for the show, and the endless number of cases that they covered. Cases of all kinds were presented from unexplained deaths, to missing persons, to serial killers- even ghosts,UFO’s and Bigfoot himself.
I remember when i was a teenager in the late 1980’s watching the show with my parents while all my friends were playing video games and popping VHS tapes in the VCR. Unsolved Mysteries is truly the show that started my love of true crime. I didn’t miss an episode. I for one am looking forward to seeing updates on old cases. Some of the cases I saw have stuck with me for years, and I have some personal favorites.
The murder of little Rachael Runyon in Utah was one that really has disturbed me over the years.
The case of the Two Mary murders was an interesting one.
The murder of Diana Robertson and disappearance of her boyfriend Mike Riemer in Washington was a memorable case.
The episode on the I-70 serial killer was another favorite of mine.
At some point, they brought back updated episodes of Unsolved Mysteries with Dennis Farina taking over for Robert Stack, but it wasn’t quite the same. That being said, they did feature some pretty good episodes like this one.
And, who can forget the top notch acting job that Matthew Mcconaughey turned in with his portrayal of a Texas murderer?
This one’s in Spanish, but trust me his acting in the episode was, to quote Mr. Mcconaughey, alright alright alright.
