frailty, thy name is woman.

i don't watch any of those CSI or SVU tv shows or whatever the latest cop/forensic show might be.
the ones that are solved in a flash by a team of 'experts'.
i think they are ALL pretty bad.
but what is it with them?
why does every one of them begin with a female being either,
raped
beaten
abducted
mutilated
maimed
disfigured
dismembered
abused
shot
stabbed
slapped
kicked
kidnapped
hit
run over
knocked down
blown up
stomped on
victimized
or
just plain KILLED!
by way of entertainment?
just asking.

every time i stumble across one of them there's always at least ONE, sometimes more of the above in the opening scene!
why?
i just don't get it.
when did this all happen?
women.
we are so disposable eh?

I can't watch SVU---or shows that have child or sex victims. I absolutely don't find it entertaining at all. :-(

You are right...that is why I can't enjoy any of those crime dramas. They just make me see how many ways I can DIE!!!

Don't watch them either. My favourite shows are Shameless and The Tudors. And blimey, the Tudors are no better, only back then you got your head chopped off.

Those shows give me the heebie-jeebies too. Especially when they involve children. Who wants to watch all that depressing stuff?

I've never seen any of those shows. I prefer comedies and (gasp) reality TV, like Dancing with the Stars. Yeah, I'm a loser, what of it?!

The only one I watch is 'Bones' which kills men and women equally. :)

true that, it's sick. they lack imagination and it's rubbish! and they always manage to show some boob as well! when the men are killed they best start showing some meat and veg bc everyone fancies a dead corpse????? ughh
