Well Done Series Woefully Under Publicized
15 December 2006 | by vzegw38See all my reviews

I would have never known about this series if I hadn't been flipping through my cable TV listings - I watch the Discovery Channel frequently and can't even remember seeing it advertised. The Discovery website offers nothing extra about the series just the synopsis you can get from any TV listing. Why the short shrift? I was hooked when I managed to stumble upon the episode on Ivan Milat "The Backpacker Murderer" - I had never heard of this man and I thought I was pretty well schooled in notorious murderers. And just last night there was another ep "The Phoenix Strangler" about a South African serial killer, again I had never heard of these crimes.

It's so refreshing to see documentaries on famous murders that don't show the same cast of characters - Manson, Bundy, Dahmer, Gacy, Gein - we've heard about these guys ad nauseum - there are other countries with serial killers people! and this brilliant series explores this.

I love it and want to purchase the series on DVD, unfortunately that's not an option.
