I’m a CSI (Crime Scene Investigation) freak. I can miss other TV shows but not CSI series: Las Vegas, New York and Miami.
A friend of mine asked me on why do I like to watch CSI?
For me, it’s not about the crimes or the plots, but it’s more about the motives. I really want to know on what people think when they decided to kill or hurt others. It might be connected with my study in psychology, but yeah, I learned a lot from these series. Beside it has been designed to always found the evidence (a small piece of fabric, hair, drop of sweat, etc), I never found any reasons to dislike these series.
Sometimes people kill because of jealousy. Other times they would kill for money, fame and popularity. Imagine a girl smiled when she was handcuffed and being reported on national TV stations. Or a serial killer who killed her victims because she was triggered by bleach!
When I watch these serials, I always think within myself about who’s the killer and what is the motive. A girl could kill her neighbor with a pen just because she wanted her neighbor’s cat. Something unimaginable for most for us, but it happens out there. Or a story about a couple who wanted to kill themselves because they had debt on their credit card agencies. It was almost done, the girl died right away after she inhaled CO2 gas, but the guy wasn’t die, so it was not a happy (suicide) ending.
I just wish, when people watch these series, they won’t do the same tricks or methods, but rather think thoroughly before they take action … on hurt or kill others.
