Less Is More
7 May 2016 | by danbredySee all my reviews

This show features some of the more interesting stores from the annals of true crime, however would be a lot more interesting if Aphrodite Jones did not insert herself as much into the stories. Her expressions are overly exaggerated and her insights are do not contribute any particular light on the cases. One particularly cringe-worthy episode is the story she did on Steve McNair -- we are treated to yet another conspiracy theory challenging the official story (of course anytime a famous person dies there must be a conspiracy). We have the former detective musing as to why McNair's mistress and his killer would be strapped for money because McNair was worth upwards of 25 million. Surely it must occur to anyone that possibly McNair was not sharing most of that money with his mistress (probably because that would cause his wife to suspect what was going on)? I suppose the show was conceived to sell her as this prolific true crime writer as much as the stories. In my opinion, however, people are more attracted to the stories than the writers in this genre. In conclusion, I suggest less of Ms. Jones' eye-rolls and faux surprise and more just straight reporting.
