After building reputations as model citizens, loving family members, and contributors to society, the oldies but no-longer-goodies profiled in this true-crime series turn into cold, calculating killers. Each hourlong episode presents two stories told with the aid of re-enactments, commentary from local authorities and crime experts, as well as first-person accounts from friends and family of the victims. But perhaps the best part of the series is the age-old wisdom and advice imparted by hosts Lynn Dell Cohen, Joyce Carpati, and Rita Ellis Hammer, celebrated fashionistas often featured in the popular blog Advanced Style. The women guide viewers through each story, a combination that makes "Elder Skelter," says Investigation Discovery, "like watching the `Golden Girls' with age rage."
