One of they best fugitive shows on television.
8 May 2010 | by caddy_shack2009See all my reviews

Out of the countless crime series on television these days, "I (Almost) Got A Way With It" is by far one of the most interesting and engaging shows out there. They usually revolve around someone who escaped from prison, and usually is on the lamb for up to a year or more and who have fake I.D's, Birth Certificate and Social Security cards. It's really fun and you learn a lot about a fugitives life on the run and the everyday panic of getting caught. Most of the escape stories featured on the show are fun to learn, and now thanks to this show if I ever go to prison, I have a few ideas on how to get out, and that's probably the only downside to the show is that if criminals are watching they might learn a little to much. Check this show out Tuesdays at 10 PM e/p on Investigation Discovery.
