Since what feels like the beginning of time, people have been theorising and at times cracking unsolved criminal cases via Reddit subtweets. Ever read about/watch/listen to an unsolved case that you just can't get your head around? Reddit is the place to go for every and all theories to be exposed and speculated upon. Netflix has decided to use this to their advantage, and honestly, we couldn't be prouder.
Earlier this month, Netflix added a reboot of 'Unsolved Mysteries' to their running list of shows, and have recently dropped all of the evidence the team obtained for each case during production via a Google Drive link on none other than Reddit to encourage fans to go nuts and help them out. The show has maintained its spot on Netflix's “Top 10 Most Watched List” since it's premiere, and of course, a bunch of viewers have resorted to Reddit to further uncover each of the cases with new tips and leads. The devil works hard, but Reddit works much harder.
In the Reddit thread titled Unsolved Mysteries (fitting), Netflix popped by to drop the giant file of evidence on viewers doorsteps, with the following statement, encouraging fans to help out. “Hey guys, Netflix here! We’ve created a public drive with all the assembled evidence, case files, interviews, and video clips for each story that didn’t make it into the final episodes,” Since being posted, the thread has received almost 500 comments, including viewers’ various theories on the each of the stories.
Netflix’s Reddit thread and G-Drive resources are available to anyone who desires them, and if you're watching along, you're likely to uncover a bunch of information on 'Unsolved Mysteries'. The remaining six episodes of the docuseries are set to arrive later this year, in the meantime, we'll be parked here with popcorn.
