Why am I so obsessed with the TV show Criminal Minds? It’s not only that show, but Law & Order (all of them), The First 48, CSI… I’m not sure what it is about these shows that keeps me hooked. Maybe I like seeing the bad guy get caught in the end. Although sometimes the bad guy doesn’t even get caught! Maybe it’s that “DONG DONG” theme of Law & Order which is so familiar. But all those other shows don’t have that. So maybe it’s the stories. Criminal Minds to me is what Days of Our Lives was to my mom back in the day. They’re so dramatic and entertaining and every now and then there’s an evil twin. You would think that after watching all these shows about killers I would be afraid to stay in a hotel room by myself every weekend, but believe it or not these are the shows that I fall asleep to at night (only in my hotel rooms, I don’t watch tv in my room at home because I’d never get out of bed)! If I don’t have the “ion” channel in my hotel room playing back to back episodes of Criminal Minds or the A&E channel I don’t know what to do. Count sheep? I’d rather count the forensic vidence. I’ve even searched online for websites that will play episodes if my tv doesn’t deliver the goods. Even if I’ve seen the episode before (which is usually the case) I’ll sit there and watch it again. Or I’ll leave it on in the back ground while I’m doing other stuff, just so I know it’s on. I guess it’s my dramatic safety blanket. I recently had the opportunity to work with Pagent Brewster who plays Emily Prentice on Criminal minds. That was cool. I may need a crime TV intervention. Speaking of which, that is another good show on the A&E channel, “Intervention.” It documents addicts that are given an intervention by their family and friends. (I know a few people that I want to put on that show.) If my family plans a “reunion” anytime soon, I’ll be on my toes. If you could only watch one show for the rest of your life what would it be?
