    There is a show on the channel called ID that I enjoy watching with my son. It is called Deadly Women. Do any of you watch it?

    For those who haven't seen the show, it depicts different women who were murderers. The stories are all true.

    Its surprising how many serial killers have been women. I think that there is common misconception about women is that we can't be violent or cruel. This show pretty much blows that myth out of the water.

    Most of the episodes are actually very interesting for someone like me who enjoys true crime stories.


    I just wanted to know if anyone else enjoyed the show.

    Quote:I don't watch much tv either. I like some of the documentaries and historical programs though.

    Quote:The show usually has a brief run down before each episode so that you can see who is going to be depicted. I avoid any show that has anything to do with children, either as victims or perpetrators. Those just bother me too much.

    I like this show because it doesn't glorify the killers. It focuses in on the victims and lets you know that these were real people. If they have family members living than they are interviewed.

    I like Dominick Dunn also for the same reasons.

    I haven't heard of that one, I'm gonna check it out! Thanks. I love those type of shows when I do watch tv. It sounds similar to Snapped, I like that one too, it's on Oxygen and depicts a woman killer each episode.

    I watch it. Actually my TV is almost always on ID. I'm a true crime buff and if I'm not watching it on TV, I'm reading books on it. I've been interested in serial killers since Gary Gilmore was sentenced to the death penalty when I was a kid.

    I'm the type of person who wants to know why things work the way they do. If my life would have been different, I probably would have been a profiler. Maybe my next life.

    Deadly Women is a good show. I also watch Snapped!

    Because I am a peaceful person, it bothers me when others are hurt. That makes me want to understand the reasons why evil exists. What would make one person not care about another's pain or suffering? I just don't understand how a human being can not have pity for another person. Watching these shows is a safe way for me to discover the whys behind such acts.

    Also, I think that the shows destroy the myths about women being more peaceful or less cruel than men. Women might overall be more peaceful then men but when females turn bad, they are really, really evil.

    I used to watch a show called Most Evil(might have the name wrong). It really went into the pschology behind certain violent acts. It was a heavy show mentally and I couldn't always watch it.

    Such shows have made me lock my doors and windows every night. I have had friends who have assured me that they live in such safe communities that they never need to lock my doors. It's surprising how many of these types of shows point out that a horrible crime occurred in a community in which people felt so safe that they did not lock their doors! [​IMG]
