My husband often asks me why I like watching dark documentaries and crime drama so much. Why, after putting Lilly to bed, I like to ‘unwind’ with Investigation Discovery or Criminal Minds instead of ‘normal people TV’.

Ok, how do I explain this without sounding a wee bit crazy.

Life is all about balance, right? You eat a bit unhealthy and make up for it by exercising more. You forgo that vacation but manage to squeeze in a day trip to the beach. You stay up late one night, go to bed with the toddler on other nights.

Balance. Sort of.

So after a long looong day of life in primary colors, overly happy cartoon characters and preschooler play dates, a woman needs a dose of crime drama to achieve some level of balance. Rom-coms and chick flicks are all well and good, but those genres are basically just grown-up versions of the primary colored cartoon worlds that is preschooler TV.

So yes, I like to watch crime drama or spooky movies to balance out the excessive amounts of My Little Pony and Caillou in my day.

How do you recuperate after a long day?

  1. I, too, like the crime dramas and true crime shows. I’d probably like them more after daily doses of Caillou. πŸ™‚

    After a long day, I like to curl up in bed and pick out a book on Scribd.

    Side Note: The Big Bang Theory FTW!

      1. Same with me! My husband likes to tease me by saying that why is it that every time he enters the room I’m watching something in which the wife is murdering the husband πŸ˜‚.


  2. I do the same exact thing. My husband gets on me so much about my “unwind” to Crime TV. (I actually just watched the latest episode of CM, I feel so sorry for Garcia right now)
    I’ve been binge watching Bones on Netflix and my husband asks, “are you learning how to kill and get away with it?”
    Yes, Yes I am. I am plotting to take out Spongebob and Elsa…..


  3. oh, i’m with you. As I unwind at night with a show, all you can hear are gun shots and sirens from the screen. I love all of the crime shows. I don’t discriminate πŸ™‚ And my husband wonders why I have burglar bars and extra deadbolts on all of our doors! ha

    1. Hahahaha! The only issue my husband has is the fact that for some reason every time he enters the room when I’m watching tv it’s some story of a wife/girlfriend murdering her husband/boyfriend 😝


  4. how to achieve balance? blogging! and reading other blogs with weird jellyfish titles.
    random jellyfish facts: my ( ex) husband on seeing a jellyfish at the beach once asked me “have you ever eaten one?” when i offered a blank stare in reply, his only response was “good eating”.
    true story. maybe i should blog about it. πŸ™‚

  5. I’m hooked off tv since high school, actually. I usually get an idea about hot shows from commercials on the radio! blogging and pinterest are my poison of choice πŸ™‚ although I did enjoy watching The Murder She Wrote with my grandma years and years ago πŸ™‚
