True Crime Garage (Podcast)

Power tools, air conditioning, and podcasts; these are a few of my tech age favorite things.

In Ice Cold Blood (Oxygen)

Before finding my new guilty pleasure The Wonderland Murders, I had been watching In Ice Cold Blood narrated by SVU's own Ice-T. As a fan of true crime shows I couldn't pass up on the opportunity to check out this dark spin on this documentary format and wasn't impressed with the stand alone episodes. Don't...

The Sinner (USA)

Jessica Biel (Cora Tannetti) and Bill Pullman (Detective Harry Ambrose) star in this cleverly written mystery drama that portrays the story of a young woman that snaps and kills a man in public. The trigger? A 1980s like song that transports Cora to a darker past that she has mentally blocked. It is up to... Continue Reading →

Ozark (Netflix)

"Their last resort." A clever tagline for a show that keeps painting its main characters into a corner. It isn't enough that the Byrde family had to flee Chicago to save their lives from Mexican Cartel lord Del Rio; their arrival at the Ozarks got them more drama than they could handle.The bad luck never...

Gone (Investigation Discovery)

Gone is a different take on true crime murder and disappearance mysteries: by the end of the show we are left with a closed case.
