This is a terrific show, highlighting an area of law enforcement that's new and fascinating. I didn't realize that you could be a specialist doing this without already working with the police or a genealogy company. I was pleasantly surprised to find it on ABC rather than ID. I really hope that it doesn't get cancelled, but if it comes to point they consider it, it would better to move it to ID rather than cancelling. This shows how it's not a reason to be afraid of doing dna tests, unless you're a criminal on the run.

I really like this, it is interesting to see how they use genetics to catch a criminal from years and years ago, the technology has seriously changed.

This is a good and interesting I expect it will be unceremoniously canceled soon. Seems to be the common practice of network execs...people like it so pull it!

Sounds a bit like Cold Justice meets Ancestry.

If it was scripted instead of reality, it’s more likely to be good. Is the average real case going to be that interesting? If it’s real. It could be a good way to get sued. If it’s real.
