Okay I admit it. I’m addicted. I’m addicted to the ID channel. You know – investigative discovery. It could be a worse. I could have a gambling problem. I could have a money problem. I could be addicted to the ladies. Nope – I’m addicted to Investigative Discovery. I can’t help it.
Behind Mansion Walls, Disappeared , Catch My Killer, Dateline, Nightmare Next Door, On the Case with Paula Zahn, Homicide Hunter, Redrum, Swamp Murders, Southern Fried Homicide – these are just a few of the shows that get my piggy blood pumping!
Some people ask what is in my Netflix que or recorded to tape on my television – now you know. I love a good who did it show. I put on my Sherlock Holmes hat, get out my Columbo cigar, my pencil and notebook. Yep, I’m addicted. Do you know else is addicted right there with me? Nods head up and down, yep my mommy.
Daddy says we watch too many of these shows. I don’t think so. I look at it as an educational research program for me and mom. It keeps us on our hooves and toes. But I guess I can admit there are times when maybe – and I stress that maybe – we are watching too much. You be the judge.
10 Signs You’re Watching the ID Channel Too Much
1. After watching the ID channel, you double check and then TRIPLE check to make sure all of your locks are set on every door and window in the house.
2. You find yourself screaming at the television, “Don’t do it!”; “Turn around!”; “Don’t open the closet door!”; “Don’t get in the car!”; or my favorite, “Are you crazy!?!” and mom’s favorite, “Has she seriously not called the cops yet?!”
3. You’ve thought about doing a background check on your significant other because you just never know who you’ve married.
4. When your spouse brings you a drink without asking, you automatically want to switch glasses with them just in case.
5. When going on vacation, the first thing you ask is, “Do you have the ID channel?” followed by “What about free WifI?”
6. When passing a hitch hiker, you just know in your mind’s eye that he has a hatchet or some sort of torture device in his back pack.
7. When at a restaurant and the table next to you asks to borrow your salt shaker, you give them EVERYTHING on your table because you know people have been killed for less.
8. When a friend asks you to ‘go for a ride’ and doesn’t tell you where ya’ll are going, you call everyone in front of him to let them know who you are with, start the recording device on your Smart phone and leave bread crumbs as a trail to find you…. just in case.
9. You’re friends give you a surprise birthday party and the first thing you do when the lights come on and everyone yells surprise is take cover behind the sofa in a fetal position.
10. Just the sound of any of the shows on the ID channel sends chills up and down your spine and you begin to wonder how the show is going to end this time.
Tell me my friends that I’m not the only one addicted to a channel that you just can’t get enough of…. please 🙂

You are most definitely not the only who-done-it addict out there 😉
05/09/2014 at 8:00 am
Thank goodness for that! I was getting kind of paranoid that I was watching these shows too much…. but can you really watch them “too much?” XOXO – Bacon
05/09/2014 at 1:38 am
I would definitely say you are watching the ID Channel to much. I love Dateline and 20/20.
I am addicted to Duck Dynasty.

Pig blushes – it is my favorite channel…. besides the Food Network. I love food so that channel is right up my alley…. except when they cook pork – go figure – Snorts. XOXO – Bacon
05/09/2014 at 2:08 am
Don’t worry Bacon, you’re not the only one. Whee and our hoomans are addicted to DAVE – endless re-runs of old panel shows from BBC1… Heh heh…
The Pigs xx
05/09/2014 at 8:02 am
Oh yes! My daddy loves the BBC. I’m so glad to see that I’m not the only one with these addictions 🙂 XOXO – Bacon
05/09/2014 at 2:55 am
LOL, it gets your piggy blood pumping hey? We don’t get that channel, but I still like CSI. The one with Ted Danson in Vegas. Some of those show titles are so funny, ‘Southern Fried Homicide’…LOL. I’m afraid to ask. I’m a big chicken and would probably not sleep after half of those.
Number 2 made me laugh like crazy 😀 and well, 1, 3 and 4 too. You crack me up.
05/09/2014 at 8:03 am
aaww snorts – thanks so much my friend. Southern Fried Homicide takes place in the south. I’m addicted! CSI is very similar to these shows – in fact I think they take some of the story lines and reinvent them for their shows. Daddy is a big CSI and NCIS fan. XOXO – Bacon

That is so very true Dezi. We see one story on one show and then it shows up on other shows with not much more to tell. It does get old. Thank goodness I have my magical backyard to play in to keep me busy at times. XOXO – Bacon

We don’t have the ID Channel but bet she’d be hooked on it if she did. Swamp Murders and Southern Fried Homicide had us chuckling. Have a fabulous Friday.
Best wishes Molly
05/09/2014 at 8:06 am
Swamp Murders is very cool! Can you believe one night we were watching it and one of the swamps – Flint River – was on the show! It was all about murders on the Flint River.. what makes that interesting it that part of the Flint River runs in the back of my magical back yard! Talk about your eye opener, jaw dropping show. Mommy even knew some of the police peeps on the show. It was crazy! XOXO – Bacon
05/09/2014 at 5:21 am
We don’t have ID channel here Bacon ..but my fave things are all true crime..and I agree it’s like playing Columbo !! all the good shows come from USA I miss First 48 hours…love True Crime…..I love how they work it out and despite the gruesome nature it is a fascinating insight into humans…and how they work( or don’t) and hence my love of animals bwaahaahahah 🙂 hugs to you Bacon …Porcine investigator of the gruesome 🙂 hugs Fozziemum xx
05/09/2014 at 8:07 am
aawww thank you my friend. I’ve been worrying about where you have been. I was giving you until this evening and then I was putting out an APPB (all points pig bulletin) out for you 🙂
We can’t get enough our crime shows! XOXO – Sherlock Bacon
05/09/2014 at 8:24 am
Bwahaahhaha yes I have been AWOL…all good and no crime here to see my friend 😉 hugs Fozziemum xxx

05/09/2014 at 6:46 am
Ha, love it…I am addicted too. 🙂
05/09/2014 at 8:08 am
So many members! We need to make our own group! XOXO – Bacon
05/09/2014 at 7:08 am
Brother to watch the ID channel is essential. The world is full of monsters, devils, hitmen, post guys… and serial mom’s! The ID channel is the university of life, if you ask me. and please don’t forget: if you are in your car and the next car follows you longer than 2 minutes, then it is an assassin. 100%. Be on your guard, brother!
05/09/2014 at 8:09 am
That is so very true brother!! Can you believe that mommy once took a class on being followed? She’s crazy like that – said it was work related but I don’t believe her. They taught how to pick up on when you are being trailed and how to trail someone. Most fascinating. XOXO – Bacon
05/09/2014 at 12:25 pm
that was a super idea to take such a class, so she is prepared always to follow you or your dad. I wish we would have such cool tv channels too, we should try to lay a cable through the pond :o)
05/09/2014 at 12:48 pm
Snorticles. So clever. Between the both of us, we could really do some work! XOXO – Bacon

I hadn’t heard of it till you mentioned it…..must admit we rarely watch TV.
05/09/2014 at 8:10 am
OMP (oh my pig). You have so got to take a peak at this channel my friends. We especially like a show called Karmas a Bitch – snorts. Hey – that’s the title. It’s all about payback. It’s a snort of a good show. XOXO – Bacon
05/09/2014 at 2:34 pm
Bacon that is one of my favorite channels. Love any type of crime drama.
05/09/2014 at 2:35 pm
YES! We have to be related then. I can’t get enough of the crime channel. And just between you and me, I think mommy has a crush on Lt. Joe Kenda on the Homicide Hunter – snorts. XOXO – Bacon
05/09/2014 at 2:36 pm
Oh my that is one of my favorite shows!
05/09/2014 at 2:37 pm
Snorts – mom says Lt Joe is ‘dreamy’ – her words. Rolls piggy eyes. You think? XOXO – Bacon
05/09/2014 at 5:26 pm
Bread crumbs! LOL! People can just follow the line of sparrows and pigeons!!!
05/09/2014 at 7:55 pm
Snorts. That’s what I was thinking. Then again if it was me, I might eat the crumbs. Blushes. XOXO – Bacon
05/09/2014 at 5:34 pm
One of my favorites also
05/09/2014 at 7:56 pm
Yes!! XOXO – Bacon
05/10/2014 at 2:20 am
its ok to have a favorite channel Bacon,me I don’t as tv time in the evening means cuddle time to me,xx Speedy
05/10/2014 at 7:29 am
Aaww. That’s even better! XOXO – Bacon
05/10/2014 at 10:50 am
Mom and I are hooked on that channel. If it isn’t new, we probably saw it. It is the channel that runs in the background and the one mommy watches all day when she is sick. Her roommate said she needs a psych evaluation! MOL
05/10/2014 at 5:55 pm
Snorts. I can’t get enough of it. We are watching it how. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon
