User Review: Aside from Unsolved Mysteries, Unusual Suspects is one of my favorite true crime TV shows. If Unusual Suspects can teach us anything, it is that even your quiet and seemingly harmless neighbor can be a cold-blooded murderer. Sometimes, a person’s public persona can be a stark contrast to who they truly are behind closed doors.
In fact, there are moments in the show where reenactments remind me of reenactments from the early seasons of Unsolved Mysteries, due to the look and feel. Unusual Suspects has nice production values.
