Forensic Files proudly advertises its standing as the longest-running true-crime series on TV. Originally narrated by the magnificent Peter Thomas, the series serves up perfect twenty-minute stories of crime and justice.
But not all the episodes focus on murder, or even crimes. A good portion of the early-season episodes focused on mysteries beyond the scope of human justice.
Below are 9 episodes from Seasons 1, 2, and 3 that actually didn’t feature murder:
You know you’re a grad student done with the coursework requirements when…
What sort of time have I been born into
that we mark its passage by falling towers?
Just in grad school. And finishing my comprehensive exams to leave said grad school. And wedding planning.
Have been in advanced fiction seminar and am doing lots of good work there. Hope to share with you in due time.
Also have a new critic’s copy of a book I’m working on and some TV shows to review.

Finals are finally over! I’ve had a chance to put up the tree. This is the first year I’m holding Christmas away from home, so this is the first year I’ve had a tree in the apartment.
Sassy’s initial reaction had me concerned.
Tonight, in this episode of “Seconds from Disaster”….
I then caught her scoping out the tree…from the comfort of my freshly washed Christmas tablecloth!
This is what the law means when it speaks of “a guilty mind.”
With the tree decorated, and anti-cat mats and sprays laid around it, I was still surprised to find it intact when I got home today.
“Im just looking. Get over yourself, mom.”
Wishing all of you a very happy holiday season, and a Christmas without drastic feline intervention.
