The First 48

This was written up by my friend Jessica Largens
I have always loved watching real life crime shows. Everything about them interests me. So the show The First 48 has always been one of my favorites on television. For the last three seasons, I have been hooked on watching these real life detective work to solve crime. This unscripted show allows for cameras to follow investigators and police officers through every step involved in solving a murder. The show is set in different cities across the United States and typically follows the same detectives throughout the season. Each episode centers around two crimes and two detective teams. Through this process you get to see how they interact with each other, crime victims and suspects. It is really a complete; insiders look to what solving crime.
I tune in each week on my Directtv and am fascinated by how well these detectives do their jobs. Not only do you get to see the steps of solving a crime, but you also get a first hand look at what it’s like to live the life of a homicide detective. Access in their offices and homes is allowed and it is amazing to see how the jobs affect all aspects of their social and private lives.
