Hike Over to the Stream
Just a quick post this week with a link to a side project that involves Forensic Files.
True Crime Truant posts always provide links to the related Forensic Files episodes on YouTube so you can watch them for free.
If you’re already paying for Netflix streaming, however, you might want to switch.
Netflix has 360 episodes 100 percent free of ads. But its library is time-consuming to navigate.
The Decider.com article “10 Great ‘Forensic Files’ Episodes and How to Find Them on Netflix” tries to make the job easier.
Decider is a website devoted to entertainment available via streaming.
Full disclosure: Decider belongs to the same company that owns the publication where I work by day.
But True Crime Truant is funded, operated, and written by me at home with my dog on my lap, no connection to my employer (except that my colleagues and I like to read one another’s blogs. You can check out Running for Your Life by marathon runner Larry O’Connor or Total Game Plan by girls volleyball coach Mike Tully).
But getting back to Netflix, you’ll find one disadvantage to watching Forensic Files there: no reader comments. Netflix does offer reader reviews, but they pertain to the series as a whole, not specific episodes.
You might miss all the “I hope the mother’s supervisor rots in hell” and “I knew he was a lying weasel from the 911 call” comments. I rather enjoy them. You can always go back and forth from Netflix to YouTube.
Next week, True Crime Truant will resume recaps of Forensic Files episodes, with “House Calls,” which tells the story of beloved pediatrician Dr. Louis Davidson, who met his end at the hands of his estranged wife, a Miss Jamaica pageant finalist, and some hired assassins.
Until then, cheers. — RR
