    Especially when the script is against them.

    My wife and I watch a lot of Discovery ID and Oxy channel. When a show starts, "Theirs was the perfect marriage!", I know two things. Someone's getting murdered and the spouse did it.

    I miss Joe Kenda, the Homicide Hunter... well, my, my my.

    Once you go down that "Rocky Road" things can get heavy.

    Another ID and Joe Kenda fan here. I want him on my home answering machine saying, "If you kill.....I WILL find you!!!!"
    The only ID Discovery shows I DON'T like are the ones that don't have a resolution......where "who dunnit" has never been determined, and I feel left hanging. :(

    I'm assuming that you and your pals finally got a woman, or is the lack of what drove you to murder?? Mmmm

    And for even older folks, "Matlock and Maalox".

    My late mother and aunts certainly relished that Oxygen program "Snapped" where women kill their husbands, boyfriends...

    Quite the party when it was on...

    We saw one recently where the guy had turned his phone off for several hours, claiming that his phone battery died. Along with other evidence, they were able to show through his phone records that he had never gone that long, going back years, without using his phone, and his phone had never been off for more than an hour.

    So my wife and I both agree on George Romero, Robert Rodriguez, and Quentin Tarantino for our violence flicks fix.
    Used to love Jet Li films too.

    But they all stopped making the bacon!
    Bummer.
    We saw Machete I on our one year wedding anniversary, just perfect!

    Kind of down hill in Hollywood since then.
    The Walking Dead is a soap opera now, and really good killing and maiming seems to lack crafty content any more, in favor of awesome choreography. I like some violent cop based TV but my wife doesn't.

    The True Detective series was good though.
    Deadwood was great too.

    All the cell tower ping stuff is funny enough but I like NCIS LA and tolerate Chicago PD.
    NCIS NOLA is OK too, but this is my too tired to bother; viewing, so my standards are low and my wife is gone for that stuff.
    We don't have to sync up for TV, she watches at different times.
    Right now she's sketching me from across the table, oddly in watercolor which she seldom uses.
    We actually have the new season of Westworld on DVD hand haven't watched it yet, funny how times and stuffs to do all mix up like life was random as opposed to follows logic.

    I’ve watched the network true crime light shows for years and since we cut cable a couple years ago I usually land on True Crime Network for lack of anything else to watch. I found several true crime podcasts and have come to the realization that a lot of people enjoy true crime and I’m not necessarily a closet serial killer. My wife doesn’t get it and claims I always watch “the rape and murder channel.”

    ice cream would be a great companion to anything, popsicles work in a pinch as well.

    Agreed about the "no resolution" shows like "Disappeared." Some episodes are about someone who disappeared 20 years ago, they never found the person or a body and leave me frustrated.

    Love the Kenda phone message idea!

    My mom would sing this when bringing out ice cream for us kids.

    Banjo content: this is one of the few Harry Reser recordings where he stays in the background as a player. He was one of the great Tenor and Plectrum banjo players...and recorded hundreds of sides (lots of novelty numbers) under a wide variety of pseudonyms and band names...also big in the cartoon music industry of the 30s (and rarely named). He would have a contract with Columbia under one name, Decca under another, Victor, Edison, Okeh, Vocalion, etc., etc. Dropped dead in the orchestra pit of "Fiddler on the Roof" during a warm-up for the show...1968.

    @trapdoor2 Ha! My Dad would half speak half sing the lyrics almost every time us kids had ice cream. I had no idea that it was an actual song, until I accidentally stumbled across it while looking for songs for my 1920s playlist just this year.

    The song was published in 1927, and Dad was born in 1932. It makes sense to me now.

    Well yeah, fiction is always seemingly more gratifying than reality, right? Just do like they do. In your head, use a typical writers' contrivance that ties up the loose threads. You know, things like in SciFi the good old, "Reverse the polarity." Love that one! Or, the Captain Janeway, "Whatever that is, hit it with an inverse tachyon beam. See if we can get a look inside of it."

    Just write your own endings, dude. You'll be happier.
