What are the best episode of Unsolved Mysteries?

Unsolved Mysteries Vol. 2 is now streaming on Netflix. The second season of the wildly popular series presents more cold cases for audiences to watch and, hopefully, help solve.

The crime documentary series isn’t new. It dates back to the late 1980s and was canceled around 2002. The streaming network has brought it back and only changed the style the cases are introduced. Instead of a narrator, viewers get actual footage, watch interviews by the people close to the case, investigators and witnesses, and also see dramatizations of the event.

At the end of each episode, audiences are encouraged to reach out if they have any tips or know more about the case. This has helped Unsolved Mysteries actually solve some of these cold cases.

Even though no cases from Unsolved Mysteries Vol. 1 have been solved, Esquire reports that the series producer is hopeful and thankful for the public’s help. Keep in mind, with some of these cases still being investigated, there’s only so much the public is allowed to know. They may be closer to solving some cases than we know.

I enjoyed Unsolved Mysteries Vol. 1 so much, that I couldn’t wait for Vol. 2. Unfortunately, the second season fails to deliver. Simply put, the mysteries aren’t as intriguing and most seem like open-and-shut cases to me.

That said, this is only my opinion! And with that, I decided to rank each of the six cases in Unsolved Mysteries Vol. 2.  Please note there are spoilers ahead if you are not caught up on the crime documentary series or have yet to watch the new episodes.

Unsolved Mysteries Vol. 2: Which case is the most intriguing?

6. “Tsunami Spirits”

Listen, I’m all for a good supernatural story and I’m a sucker for alien theories, but there’s a place for everything and Unsolved Mysteries isn’t it for this one.

The crime documentary series is for audiences to watch a cold case and try to help solve it or at least point the authorities in the right direction. But “Tsunami Spirits,” is about ghost sightings after a deadly tsunami. There’s nothing to solve or even any evidence, just stories from people in town.
