Have to confess I was curious and checked out this hour long reality show. http://www.spiketv.com/index.html#home/bll/t=bll/cnt=2/st=1 The tagline is "Can you solve it before they do?" Two teams of law students, law professors, and assorted others. A real crime is recreated. A veteran police detective serves as mentor and guide.
I was horrified and fascinated. Couldn't turn it off. Extremely gory and pretty artificial, but not as stupid or as tasteless as I expected. I'll probably be tuning in again.
