I decided the other day that I have a strong attraction to watching crime drama/cop type TV shows. When I was little, it was JAG and Diagnosis Murder that I liked to watch. When JAG went off air I became fascinated with NCIS and then 6 seasons later NCIS:LA. I also liked to catch the occasional episode of Cold Case.
Now that I’m out of the house I watch a little more TV than I used to and have added The Mentalist, Bones, Criminal Minds, and while it was on, The Human Target. I was just introduced to Hawaii 5-0 (old and new) a few weeks ago and love that too. And let’s not forget about Alcatraz that just started as well. Just about the only shows not in this alphabet soup mess of shows are the CSI and Law and Order franchises (with the exception of Law and Order:SVU). I never really got or liked them. They may be successful, but I just don’t like how the plots and story lines were set up.
I don’t know why I like these shows so much, but I’m not gonna overthink it too much. If I do that I won’t have any brainpower left to figure out whom the bad guy is before the cops on the TV shows.
