A reality show gone horribly wrong.
1 August 2001 | by casanova-2See all my reviews

"Murder in Small Town X" has to be the worst reality show to come down the pike. I love reality based programming, but this program has so many loose bolts it makes " The Michael Richard's Show " look like a tight-well oiled machine. The direction and or editing ( had to spread around the credit ) is so poor it hasn't given us any incite into the players personalities and feelings towards there fellow players. In some shows ( especially big budget blockbuster Hollywood movies ) charaterization can be over looked, but in a reality show it's a vital esscential to the connection between the audience and the characters. By knowing the players it adds to our dismay when our favorite contestant is ejected from the show. On " Murder " we have nameless and faceless sheep being led to the slaughter and how can we care?

I'm not going to bore you with the rules or gameplay of the show it's arbituary, even a game with the most complex rules in the world can be good. And that's the problem with " Murder " it's just no good and on top of that it's dumb and not visable. Here's an example: on each episode the killer delivers a red envelope to the crime solver's headquarters during the duration of the show. In this envelope contains a cheesy clue dealing with the case. Now does this strike anyone as stupid? I would love to hear a contestant proclaim to the host, " Wouldn't it just be easier if we held 24 hour surveillance over our headquarters and discover the identity of the person delivering these letters?"

In the end " Murder " is one of those sad shows that really could've been good and not the target of my critical nature. But, I have to say it's time to set up the surveillance camera and put this puppy to sleep.
