Netflix Fans Are Calling 'Unsolved Mysteries' 'The Best Thing About 2020'
Masterminded by the creators of Stranger Things (that's enough incentive to watch for us, tbh) the show is an imaginative reboot of the NBC and CBS series that ran for 12 years between 1987 and 1999.
The original show cracked open an incredible 260 unsolved cases, and the new format blends its signature elements with a more modern and immersive kind of storytelling.
Each episode explores an unsolved case, using a combination of re-enactments, interviews and archive footage to delve into the mystery.
Along the way, you can expect testimony from journalists, detectives, friends and family members.
If you, like us, your believe your MI5 acceptance letter must have been lost in the post, then this show is for you.
Six episodes are available to watch on Netflix - and fans are calling the series "mind blowing", "10/10" and "the best thing about 2020".
"The best thing about 2020 is that unsolved mysteries is on Netflix," said one enthusiastic Twitter user.
Another gripped fan wrote: "UNSOLVED MYSTERIES IS MY SH*T! Best thing @netflix has done is bring us ALL NEW episodes! On a side note, who has seen episode 2 can we please discuss? Lol.
"Watching unsolved mysteries on Netflix and it IS BLOWING MY GOD DAMN MIND," commented a third.
While a fourth said the show was "truly heartbreaking and mind blowing. definitely 10/10."
