Autopsy - HBO Series

     Autopsy is a series that started back in the '90's on HBO.  If you have any interest at all in forensic pathology, this is the show for you! There are two prominent forensic pathologists that appear in these shows & their names might ring a bell. One is Dr. Cyril Wecht & the other is Dr. Michael Baden. Both of these men have been called upon in many high profile court trials for their expertise in helping to determine a true cause of death.

     There have been many episodes of Autopsy, many cases that doctors other than Dr. Wecht & Dr. Baden were called upon to discuss & bring closure to. Some of the cases in these shows are high profile cases you may have been forgotten about over the years or maybe never heard the outcome of. You'll recognize more than you'll expect.

     Some of the scenes aren't for the faint of heart but that warning is at the beginning of each episode. I'll be honest, this show isn't for everyone. At one point in my life I had toyed with being a medical examiner so I'm not bothered by any of this. This is a REAL show, these are REAL events. Please keep that in mind. There are no special effects or make-up involved. 

     If you've seen this, or after you catch an episode or two, I'd love to hear your thoughts on it so make sure you subscribe to my blog. You never know what I'll review next.
