    Mysteries that are not even so mysterious, told in a way that makes everything less interesting than it already is.

    Netflix propaganda back at it again. I was looking for something interesting to watch after finishing Dark and saw a ton of marketing behind this so decided to give it a try.

    It is not bad but definitely nothing really interesting, most cases are boring and poorly explained, in some they avoid important details so they can tell them at the end. Decent but just another one of those

    Decent but just another one of those programs you can see in Space, Discovery Channel etc

    Mediocre making and narration. Would have been better even if you just read the casefile yourselves.

    Doesn't live up to the title name.

    It was nostalgic to hear the old intro music. Updated series is very good. I just hope the new exposure can help them solve these mysteries, leading to follow up episodes of closure!

    Unsolved Mysteries manages to satisfy both its old and new audiences and deliver at least one case that’s as unique as it is baffling. The rest of the half-season is weaker, but “Thirteen Minutes” gives fans plenty to work with.

    The lack of a host also leads to a feeling of repetition. Stack and Farina’s narration not only kept things moving, but were able to fill in blanks that didn’t need to be prodded from the subjects. Here, the emphasis is on having the family members lay out the story in its entirety, and what isn’t verbally explicated is presented in on-screen timelines. ... It leaves “Unsolved Mysteries” feeling generic.

    The mysteries this new version discusses are fascinating and the episodes are well-researched with good storytelling. We just wish they named it something else.
