  • I think there is, but I also do like CSI and Law and Order. I mean yea the world is gruesome enough, but some people also like their fiction. While some of the stuff they come up with has something to do with something that actually happened, most of the stuff is fiction and I think some people like to escape reality every once in a while with a who-dunnit type show.

  • Some are interesting, but I hate how every episode they have to show a dead body on the table. I close my eyes. Ick!

  • Yeah, I'd like to know too. I was flipping the channel the other day and one of those shows was on and the guy had a maggot on his pants leg. I turned the channel immediately. Why would I want to watch that?!! I'll stick with Food Network and HGTV!

  • I'm a cop's daughter and am in the medical field. I see the people more as victims and patients who need help. I do like some of the suspenseful stories, too.
    It's hard for me not to have compassion, yet I have a pretty cast iron gut at some of the gruesomeness.
    Sometimes I think it would have been nice not to know what certain things look like, but the people who do these jobs are amazing.

  • I like a variety of shows including that one. lol :) In reality if no one wanted to deal with those sort of things where would we be when it came to investigations etc. Everyone likes something different...variety makes things better lol :)

  • I used to watch them but not too much anymore. The really annoying shows are the dozens and dozens of so called reality shows. I cannot stand those ridiculous things.
