Q. Somebody I know has been wrongfully convicted of a crime. Can you help?
A. Unfortunately, we do not have the resources to conduct independent investigations. However, there are many Innocence Projects in the U.S. that devote their time specifically to the exoneration of individuals believed to be innocent.

Q. I am interested in pursuing a career in forensic science. Where do I start?
A. Our Resources Page lists different forensic science fields, forensic terms, and some helpful links to professional organizations. We highly suggest you visit the American Academy of Forensic Science (LINK: www.aafs.org) website. They have a program called the Young Forensic Scientists Forum (YFSF), which is dedicated to helping young people who want to become forensic scientists. Here you will find resources including colleges with forensic science programs, mentoring programs, newsletters, and links to other organizations.


  1. when will the rest of the episodes be available on DVD?

  2. Where do you get the stories you create an episode out of? Is it just a team that looks for interesting cases?

  3. Will every episode ever be available on DVD?

  4. Couldn’t find your program for some time. It was renamed Mystery Detectives and I didn’t know what happened to it.

    Love this program. Hope you have new ones coming up. The name change kept me from finding it again. LOVE IT and hope to view it again and again. Thanks for the quality of every show.

  6. I just love your show,im from South Africa and i watch it everyday,i never cared about Forensic but since i watched Medical Detectives i love it so much and i think lot of people here loves it too,i think your doing a good job.

  7. I haven’t seen a new episode on HLN in years. Only reruns. Are you planning on producing new shows?

  8. My all time favorite show to watch. Even the re-runs. If I wasn’t an old accountant I would start over and be a criminalist. Do you offer t-shirts for sale? I would like to support the show in public.

  9. I’m obsessed with the show. I am reading a book called forensics for dummies by D.P. Lyle,M.D

  10. I am trying to help a friend, who’s a physician, to know what episode was aired through channel HLN on 5-8-2015 at 10:40 pm. Then, how to watch it. Thank you for your help.

  11. FORENSIC FILES—–Could you PLEASE give us some new episodes???? You just keep repeating and repeating and repeating!!!! So SICK OF IT!!

  12. Is there any hope of a reboot? There are so many stories to be told and mysteries to unfold! This is by far the best Crime show on television to date.

    Thank YOU all for the 18 years!

  13. Hello

    The show is great but really needs some new episodes. The show obviously gets good ratings i watch it everyday. But getting tired because ive already seen the shows

  14. This is such a great show! Is the evidence shown in the episode from the actual crime being talked about?

  15. I have loved this show for years. Please present some new episodes! I am a chemist, and I deeply appreciate how this program shows science being used to solve crimes. This program does an outstanding job of teaching how important science is in discovering the truth of what happens. Sometimes it feels like the general public does not appreciate science, so thank you for showing how important – and interesting! it is.

  16. My brother’s murder was solved by forensics. Thank you for forensics!
