One episode sticks out for me, as being more than I can handle.
I dont know the title or year, but a woman is abducted from a parking lot. I think it was her engagement party.
The killer is a man who abducts women and keep them alive while mentally torturing them. He shows them videos and/or photos of their children and loved ones.
I have four children and a husband, and I cry only to think about being in such a hopeless, terrifying situation. For a mother, to daily be reminded of the hell your children go through without you.
Nope, will not watch that one again.
I have no problem watching murders, but for some reason this episode gets to me, although I know there are many heartbreaking histories in Cold Case.
I get what you are saying. Iv'e personally stopped watching this TV Show completely, it's nothing but darkness. I'm a Christian and when i watch 100% dark shows like this a verse always comes to mind which is "to focus on whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, whatever is praiseworthy, whatever is pure, whatever is right". (Philippians 4:8). I still watch thrillers, but there's some things that are just way too dark that it crosses the line. The detectives in this TV Show are admirable, but the show itself outweighs that due to all of the topics being so evil. I personally love thriller tv shows and thriller movies, but when it's extremely morbid like that is when it doesn't feel right to watch.
I love the show. It is emotionally charged and upsetting but it really causes you to empathise and understand so much of the emotional pain. What I love about the show is the darkness isn't "evil". They show the very human reasons behind the murders.
How do you cope with the darkness in the Bible? It's a book full of murder, genocide and hate (especially the old testament). But it also has lots of hope and light. That's how you should view everything.
There are certain things that I refuse to watch now also. I dumped The Walking Dead because it's torture porn. I love Game of Thrones but I look away at the gory scenes. I've never really understood gory films either.
Bauer vs. Bourne, that is the question.
