I can’t stop watching murder mystery TV shows.

Like, Dateline & I are in a very committed relationship. I just can’t get enough of bat crazy folks killing their spouses.

Maybe I more so love how dramatic the actual shows are. For instance, I’m watching one episode titled, “The Comic Book Killer.” Literally, dude murdered his wife in a comic book store and he is now coined the comic book killer? No comic books used in the actual murder, though…. Misleading, Dateline! Misleading. Next up: wife kills husband with a stiletto. Innovative, really.

Oh & the reenactments! I can’t. All of the actors are ridiculously more beautiful than the actual people. Why is that? Do we really not want to see normal people killing each other? Are we that sick that we’d rather watch pretty people die? Yeah probably.

Don’t worry, y’all, The Comic Book Killer is behind bars & is no longer a menace to society!
