Unsolved Mysteries (Volume 2) Review
By Paul Anthony
With the pandemic going on I have been looking at so much to review until life goes back to normal, so let me say I am sorry for not reviewing this volume of episodes a lot sooner because honestly I did watch this show as soon as it came out but just had other things to write about. Now let’s get to talking about the last six episodes of this season. Volume 2 covers 6 episodes much like volume did and those episodes are the following. Washington Insider Murder, Death In Oslo, Death Row Fugitive, Tsunami Spirits, Lady in the Lake and the last episode is title Stolen Kids. Like before with the first 6 episodes, there is no host which to me is the only mistake I could fine and that is just being picky because though Netflix makes good documentaries, they all seem to be the same except this could have been different. But that is the just a minor knock against it.
All the episodes seem to be roughly around the one hour mark when it comes to time. Also each episode does a good introduction to the story you are about to watch as well as give you as much details from from what we heard and interviews from people who were close to investigations. The first episode follows the mysteries death of John P. Wheeler 3rd. Second episode follows a death of an woman in a nice hotel in Norway, which she gave them false information about herself including her name which truly left everything a mystery. Next we follow the case of convicted murderer and sex offender Lester Eubanks who escaped from prison. The fourth episode follows the claim in which people from Japan sees the ghosts of those who lost their lives in the tsunami of 2011. This one really peaked my interest because it’s a case we all truly remember and the clean up and the lost of life was truly a sad thing and one for the ages. Then the death of Joann Romain who disappeared in 2010 when she so called walked into the icy lake St. Clair. the last episode covers the disappearance of two toddlers from Harlem in 1989 and where they might be. The toddlers were Christopher Dansby and Shane Walker and they were last seen at the playground at the Martin Luther King Jr towers. Truly another episode that caught my attention because it sadly involved innocent kids.
Now the second half of this season had some good moments but not as much as the first half. Overall these two volumes made up what is the 15th season of the show and far from what the they are calling a reboot. in the end I do give this season a must watch status and a grade of about a B plus or 85 percent. I would say its good for a Friday night with popcorn! Please if you have any information regarding these cases please report it and help these mysteries become solved!
