Everyone has that handful of distractions they turn to when they just need to chill. As Outline Senior Developer Erik Hinton explains in this episode of Extremely My Shit, for him that includes hunkering down to watch an episode (or 20) of the true crime docu-series Forensic Files. Premiering in 1996 on TLC, the show ran for 14 seasons on four different networks before it was finally cancelled in 2011. The result? More than 400, ever-airing reruns-worth of staged lab footage, low-budget crime scene reenactments, and Peter Thomas' sweet, sweet narration.
