I was sitting in church one day when the female co-pastor began talking about how she goes to bed around 9pm every night because that is when all the "murder shows" come on. She, of course, is talking about all the Law and Orders, the CSI's and what have you.
I tend to be ok with both sets of shows but I cannot watch episodes where women and children are being hurt. I just can't. I watched an episode of Law and Order SVU where Elliott found a woman chained to a bed, trying to birth a baby. She died, baby survived. I still think about that stupid episode.
Last night JimmyEW, who hardly ever watches TV of any sort, decided to watch Medium. And even weirder, he decided to watch it in bed. Something we do maybe once every few months.
Now, I really like Medium. I'm drawn to weird shows like this. But last night it was about a young woman kidnapped and the Medium chick kept dreaming about her last moments of life. There was fearful screaming, pleading and terror. I, was trying to read. I couldn't read as I listened to the believable sounds of murder. I covered my ears and put my head in my pillow, JimmyEW asking, "are you ok?" and gradually turning down the sound.
I don't mind that he watched it, but not in bed. That was hardly the last thing I wanted to hear before I drifted off to sleep. Especially since I am prone to nasty nightmares.
I made him let me read for another half hour to try to cleanse my pallet. It seemed to work, I had no nightmares. Unless you call a surprise party where the only two guests you see are former college friends who you broke up with cause they sucked. That was a bit awkward.
