Love this show
12 May 2018 | by jemmasleemanSee all my reviews

I have watched this show for years and am thrilled to see it return for its 18th season. I'm very proud that it's a Canadian show and have found the graphics and effects excellent for their current time. I find it fascinating (and sometimes heart-breaking), and really like that they make an effort to find any surviving crew and passengers as well as the NTSB (or equivalent), investigators to interview. Love it!
