Who used to love this show?  I watched it, but as a kid, it grossed me out sometimes.  I do remember one episode in particular about a guy who got stabbed in the heart and you could see the knife moving back and forth as his heart was beating... YUCK!!!!

William Shatner was the host.  I never watched it regularly, but the odd time I tuned in.  Good show it was!

Good topic Bill..Jesse (Marty McFly) is gonna love ya for posting this one and the Unsolved Mysteries thread! lol.  This was another show that I frequently watched..especially with my mom. We loved to always watch this show and Love Connection (what a mix, huh? LOL).

There's something about watching someone else's misery that is somewhat interesting, huh? :D

Oh yeah, totally. :) I have alot of episodes taped from the end of its run around 1994-'96, that's like a good version of a reality show. The filming quality was more lifelike (not the type you usually see in movies and most TV shows) so you almost had the idea it was happening right in front of you. It was family oriented, so it was like a slice of typical American life. I always found it entertaining, especially the police stories and road stuff, but they were all good.

There's a guy on YouTube who has posted tons of episodes and updates it semiregularly, check them out. :)
