The Butcher Baker: Mind of a Monster

On first appearances, Robert Hansen seemed to have it all.

As a mild-mannered family man, he ran a successful bakery and held world-record hunting trophies that brought him respect among his peers.

But behind this carefully cultivated exterior lurked a cold-blooded serial killer.

Big game animals no longer satisfied his urge to kill; he needed a different sort of prey.

Hansen sought out women in Anchorage's red-light district and flew them out to the Alaska wilderness where he hunted them down for sport.

Many women who had encountered Hansen warned authorities of his dark side, but their pleas for action were ignored.

Hansen was eventually arrested and confessed to the murders of 17 women.

Tapes of this confession have been lost for 35 years, but now, together with the testimony of his friends, victims, and the officers involved, The Butcher Baker: Mind of a Monster finally pieces together the truth about Robert Hansen.

Family or Fiancé 4

In this high-stakes social experiment, there will be disagreements, heartbreak, resolutions and hopefully healing, as engaged couples seek the blessings of their disapproving families before their upcoming weddings.

The couples and extended families live under one roof for three days and participate in activities designed to strengthen their bond, unpack their differences, and show some very complicated relationships in a whole new light.

In the end, will the experience confirm the families' concerns, leaving these couples to reconsider their unions?

Or will it provide the families with a renewed understanding and persuade them to give their blessings to the couple's happily ever after?

In the Season 4 premiere, "Shanika and Justin: Lies, Lies, Baby": The new season kicks off with an episode featuring Shanika and Justin, a young couple ready to wed but unresolved family issues have put the celebration on hold.

While Shanika attempts to reconcile with her estranged brother, Toney, information about her past, and a shocking story about a prior pregnancy and baby that disappeared, causes Justin and his family great concern.

Shanika's family is convinced that Justin might have second thoughts if he knew about all of the lies that Shanika has told in her past, and they are ready to expose it all.
