Today’s topic is society’s – and my – obsession with shows based around murder and crime investigations. While those that don’t share the enticement look at those who do as strange and slightly sadistic, in reality, being drawn in by crime and murder is no more unusual than being unable to look away from a car crash. In fact, studies show that those who watch crime shows are more interesting in conversation. Also, watching shows like Law and Order educate people on the laws of the United States. I’ve even memorized the Miranda Rights, just from watching season upon season of SVU. So don’t think it strange to find yourself attracted to the bloody messes that you know aren’t even real. It’s only human!
