Snapped is a true crime show that appears on Oxygen. It has been on air since 2004. The show chronicles the crimes and often the lives of women who "snap" and commit heinous offenses, typically spousal murder. Snapped often contains news reports, interviews with people close to the crime, photos of the victim(s), photos of the killer and sometimes even interviews with the killer. The average episode is 30 minutes, though sometimes they run for a full hour. Some of the women featured have yet to be found guilty, so they are presumed innocent by the law until such a time as they are found guilty.
The first season of snapped features several women who did not physically commit crimes, but convinced others to do it for them. The first woman on the show convinced her girlfriend to kill her rich husband. The second woman got her own teenage son to kill her husband. Further investigation showed that the couple was involved with drug sales. Her son was acquitted, but she was placed on death row. As the series continued, poisonings, shootings and much more were featured. There was even one woman who was severely abused by her husband and finally went crazy trying to defend herself, stabbing him nearly 200 times.
The following seasons of Snapped continued in the same vein as the first. The women featured always seem to have a motive like greed or jealousy, according to their critics. Oftentimes, there may be another side that involves abuse and in at least one case, euthanasia spurred by a mother's love. One thing is always certain; the women are accused of the most horrible types of crimes a person can commit. In this way, Snapped is a very sensational show with a lot of drama.
