You’d think people would be looking for feel-good entertainment in these nervous times but true crime remains an extremely popular genre and one of the most classic examples is Forensic Files.
Who doesn’t like playing detective while assuming all actual detectives are corrupt? Who doesn’t like completely rethinking a case when a new piece of evidence is introduced? Who doesn’t like poring over the gruesome details of a total stranger’s demise?
Combine that with the dramatic voiceovers, goofy murder reenactments, and a focus on forensics and you have the long-running hit Forensic Files. The show, which was originally called Medical Detectives, first aired in 1996 and has been running for so long at this point that it has a large and dedicated fan base well versed in its melodramatic tropes and quirks. Also, new Forensic Files episodes are coming in February of 2020, so get hyped!
Here are some of the best Forensic Files tweets from armchair forensics experts.
