Fun Friday–10 Life Lessons Learned from Watching Crime and Paranormal Shows
In my spare time recently, I’ve been rewatching favorite episodes of TV shows like Criminal Minds, Supernatural, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Hawaii Five-0, etc. Because I have this love of both crime/procedural shows and paranormal kick-’em-up shows, I’ve learned some very important life lessons that I thought I should pass along.
9. Never trust the demon or vampire who swears they’re on your side and they just want to help you. They’ll always bite you in the end (figuratively or literally).
8. Every town in America, no matter the size, apparently has a fleet of brand-new, black Chevy Suburbans just waiting for a super-elite team from the FBI to come and solve one case.
7. Don’t ever have a romantic relationship with someone on your “team.” It never ends well.
6. Partners with whom you share witty repartee are VITAL TO YOUR SURVIVAL. Treat them well!
5. What’s dead should stay dead. But what’s buried doesn’t always stay buried.
4. Never have sex (clandestine or otherwise) outside. You’ll either find a dead body or you’ll be attacked by a serial killer, vampire, werewolf, demon, or Wesen.
3. It’s possible for two people with one or two shovels to dig a rectangular hole (complete with perfect 90-degree corners), with only a small pile of dirt beside it, to unearth a coffin . . . and not be covered in dirt from head to toe when finished.
2. Never, ever say, “Things can’t get any worse,” because that’s the invitation for things to get worse—because things always get worse.
And the numero uno, most important thing I’ve learned . . .
1. The big-name guest star is ALWAYS THE MURDERER! (Or almost always.) When are these guys going to figure that out???
