CSI Shows Are Bad?

leave a comment »

I’m not a big fan of the crime-murder-investigation-48hour-who-done-it-mystery shows, but I can tell who is. My wife! She never gets tired of these things. She can watch them all day long every single day and never seem to tire of them, regardless if the same narrator is doing the next show. It’s like an eight hour show sometimes. She prefers the real life case shows compared to the fake, Hollywood ones, but if she can’t find a “real” one, then she settles for a “fake” one.


What have I taken away from all of this? Three things really…


ONE: These shows have made me completely paranoid. It doesn’t matter that I’m innocent of anything and everything, but the constant playing of these shows makes me think like a crime scene investigator. Every time I use my credit card somewhere in the furthest part of the back of my mind the thought comes, “This is totally traceable”. The paper trail on me would be like 5000 miles long. Every time I vacuum, I think of hair and fiber samples, every cigarette I smoke I think of DNA samples, fingerprints on my can of soda, suspicious vehicles sitting in the neighborhood too long, it just never stops.


TWO: Why aren’t more criminals watching these shows? It’s like all the cheats one could ever need to commit heinous crimes. Of course they always throw out the disclaimer that, “no one is smart enough to commit the PERFECT crime”. Well, they’re certainly doing all they can to make someone try it. It’s just hard to believe that criminals are still leaving their wallets on the scene, of a shirt with their name written on the back label or bragging about their “fresh kill” at a local bar. You’d think that these shows would raise the caliber of criminal marginally at the very least. Don’t get me wrong though, I’m glad that crime doesn’t pay.


THREE: Luminol would make an awesome band name, (if it’s not already). I love the name so much, and if it’s not already taken, I want someone out there to use it for their band. I don’t even care about credit or sharing thunder I just want to have a band in this world called Luminol.


I knew it, it’s already a band. Damn it! You just can’t do anything in this world that hasn’t already been done.


Egg On!
