Addicted to Crime Dramas??

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Before I moved back in with my mom, I watched wrestling. That's it!

One night, I sat down and watched Law & Order: CI with her. That was it! I can't get enough of them now and have withdrawals if I go 2 or more days without seeing one of them!

I watch most of them as we don't have expanded channels. But, I regularly watch Law & Order: CI and SVU, Cold Case, Bones, Criminal Minds and NCIS.

Who else can't get enough of them??

I watch TruTV when I get a chance! I like Cold Case Files & other true cases.
Why are you going to Prague? For a vacation?

Yup... me and my dad both. We can sit on the phone (different states) and chat about the latest episode of NCIS or SVU... Bad thing is? I got him addicted. I started with MacGyver back in the day... (once it got to reruns, I was not suppose to watch during football season because it was after my bedtime). Then I started watching Law & order.... started telling him about it, and he watched... then JAG with NCIS following soon after. He doesn't like Bones and I don't know if he watches Criminal Minds, but we compare notes on all the others. CSI as well. We love the science aspect. The guns and crime solving help. Neither of us like the two CSI spinoffs...

And who is my 82 year old fathers' favorite character on NCIS? ABBY! The Goth chick... he adores her. My meek, humble senior father LOVES Abby. it cracks me up.

I watch those too. Plus I watch all 3 CSI shows. I would even prefer to watch any number of reruns of the above than most things on mainstream television these days because it seems that mainstream TV now consists mostly of stupid game or reality shows.

Oh yeah...forgot the CSI's! I don't watch Miami though.

Abby is my favorite too!

Know what you mean, I am a huge fan of Criminal Minds, however I didn't even start watching it until this year. Good thing that I can get all the old shows on A&E. Also like CSI but sort of gravitate towards CSI New York right now.

I love all the Law & Orders!! I also watch Bones, but I don't watch any CSIs
post #9 of 27
Yup. Totally addicted to all the CSIs (even Miami although I can't bear David Caruso), most of the Law & Order franchises especially Criminal Intent and SVU plus the show that gave birth to that franchise, Homicide: Life on the Streets. Of the American shows I also like Numb3rs, Bones, Raines and Life. I quite enjoy Cold Case as well. I even like Murder She Wrote and the Mystery Woman series and I loved the Nero Wolfe Mystery series. Then there are the British shows like Morse, Lewis, Poirot, and the various incarnations of Miss Marple (particularly Joan Hickson and Geraldine McEwan). Then there are Det. Chief Inspector Wexford and The Inspector Lynley Mysteries....

You're getting it, aren't you, that I'm a total addict?!


P.S. Beautiful city, Prague. I envy Whisky's Dad

*sigh* Poirot... I'm not a huge fan of Morse, but every time i watch one, I get a little more curious... I love McEwan's Marple... she is SOOO good in that. Oh and Lynley... Love Lynley... Have you watched the Hamish MacBeth series? Not as good (or close to for that matter) as the books they're supposedly based off of, but it's not bad... and Havers from Lynley was on a Series Three episode... I just watched that a couple nights ago on DVD... I was like 'hey, that's Havers!!'

Oh dear, how could I?!

And yes I liked the weird whimsy of the Hamish MacBeth series with the brilliant Robert Carlyle early on in his career. And I loved the grand guignole of the early Taggart series (before it went on without Taggart himself).

I loved THE MIDSOMER series. I also like watching TRU channel. I used to watch LAW&ORDER until I got tired of it and I watch BONES sometimes.
post #15 of 27
I love watching TruTV, CSI, and L&O
post #16 of 27
I love those shows as well, Law and Order SVU being my favorite. Also love forensic files on TruTv
post #17 of 27
I am addicted too!

Bones, CSI (all 3 of them although I am not as addicted as I used to be), Law & Order, Without a Trace, Criminal Minds, Cold Case... the list goes on!
post #18 of 27
OMG! I am so much a murder/mystery fan. I love any of the PBS mysteries, like Poirot, Ms. Marple, Midsommers, etc.

I also love all the Law and Orders, the CSIs except for NY, Bones, Monk and Psych.

Another British series I forgot to mention is Silent Witness. I didn't enjoy the first few series with Amanda Burton, even though I quite like her as an actor. The storylines were too short on the forensic examination and long on the slightly unbelievable procedural side. However, since the major recasting of the show, which happened around Season 8, it has been terrific. The team of William Gaminara, Tom Ward and Emilia Fox works incredibly well (and they are all eye candy for different types - I personally find William Gaminara very toothsome). I don't know if it is shown in the Americas but, if it is, it's well worth a look. I far prefer it to another show of around the same generation, Waking the Dead, which is a British cold case themed show but with a very different style from the American Cold Case.

I'm ridiculous with these things. I can literally watch crime tv, either fictional stuff like L&O, or the true stuff like Cold Case Files, Extreme Forensics, etc. all day if I let myself. I have no idea what my fascination with it is. My mother is the same way.

Is anyone else besides me so waiting to see the Christmas Monk and Psych specials on 12/28?
post #23 of 27
I did like Monk when it first started and think Tony Shalhoub does a great job but I gave up watching the show because it became too formulaic for my taste. The other show you mention, I don't think I know. What is "Psych" short for?

Psych is the name of the show.It's about a guy who pretends to be psychic and his best friend.They help the police solve crimes.

Right, thanks. We don't get it in the UK. I'll look it up on IMDb
post #26 of 27
I love the Law and Order series. When I didn't have cable for about 6 months this year, I went through withdrawls I know most of them by heart. Can't wait to see how Jeff Goldblum does in CI.

Love Monk, Psych and Without a Trace, too. I find Cold Case sad for some reason. I'm weird.

I love them... my favorite are Bones, Criminal Minds and NCIS
