  1. I definitely prefer non-fiction. It’s fascinating to me how people can do these things. As for fiction, the only crime show I’ve ever really loved is Criminal Minds but I honestly think they’re going downhill these past few seasons…

    1. AH yeah, the non-fiction ones are a lot more terrifying. I can’t watch them when I’m alone. Have you ever watched the one about killer kids?! I almost had that one on my list. I’ve never seen Criminal Minds but actually someone else commented saying they think that show is going downhill, too!

      1. I can’t watch it alone too. It’s scary, right? I can’t believe people can do it sometimes. I also love watching crime-mystery-series. I just can’t get over those. Criminal minds was good. It’s too bad it’s not the same anymore. 😦

  2. Does How to get away with murder count as a crime show?? If not NCIS I think it was…

    And those stories on the ID channel (?) About the women who kill (their lovers) πŸ‘Œ I feel confident that if in the situation I could properly dispose of the body and evidence πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    1. YES YES YES!! I love the first 3 you listed but I don’t think I’ve watched criminal intent, I’m gonna check it out if I can find it on Hulu or Netflix. ;D Thank you!


  3. See, I need my murder mysteries leavened with humor. My favorites are Murdoch Mysteries (about a Canadian detective 100 years ago who also gets to meet historical figures: Arthur Conan Doyle shows up at least once), Death in Paradise (about English detectives who get assigned to work on a beautiful tropical island), Bones (which is a pretty funny show even with the gore), and NCIS (which has pretty wacky characters; the irony is that the only character I disliked was the one whose actor has his own show now).

    1. I’ve never heard of any of those shows except Bones & if they are anything like it, I think I’d like them! Thank you for all the suggestions. πŸ˜€


  4. I like the non-fiction crime shows although I am in the middle of Blacklist right now. It’s pretty cheesy but I started it, so I must finish it. Although my Netflix recommended for you column looks like I’m training to be a serial killer or something, I still can’t stop watching crime and drug documentaries!

    1. Lie to Me is on Hulu but not on Netflix so it’s probably why it’s not that popular. It was also cancelled after only 3 seasons. πŸ˜› It’s really interesting though, especially the first season. I’m sad they’re ending SVU!

        1. My boyfriend has watched it all and he loves it. He said he would re-watch it with me sometime but there’s so many things to watch all the time, it’s hard to keep up haha.
