Law and Order SVU should come with a disclaimer. It should read, “Do not watch more than two episodes at a time. Watching entire seasons at once can prove harmful to your sanity.”
I know this from personal experience. I have misguidedly watched more than three complete seasons of Law and Order SVU in the last three weeks. How is this possible? I watch them constantly. I play them while I clean, while I grade, while I plan, while I blog, while I stalk. (ew – stalk – bad choice of words)
And this was a bad idea.
I have had sleeping issues. I am thinking of filing a suit against the Law and Order people for disturbing my sanity. Every step of the cat is a masked man; every swish of the dishwasher is someone climbing in through a window. Every noise in my fifty year old house (which makes a lot of noises) is enough to cause me a mini heart attack. I’ve cried, I’ve been terrified, and overall, I’ve gone nuts.
I should’ve known this would happen when a blog buddy commented, “Yes, one summer I watched all the Law and Order SVU seasons and I started carrying pepper spray.”
And I still kept watching. So now I’m a nutjob. I’m going to rewatch Sherlock instead. He solves crimes, too, but his deep, resonating voice and piercing stare distract me from my terror.As does Martin Freeman. Cause he’s just so huggable.
I haven’t forgotten my promise. I am planning my 300+ giveaway, but I want it to be great, and that takes time, people, so stay tuned.
I also plan on Linking up with my Bucket List. The list has begun, but it is not completed.
The game is afoot!
I love Law and Order SVU.
I also have the problem of watching scary movies. At night. Alone. Not a good combo!
Journey of a Substitute Teacher
Oh my goodness.. SVU is my favorite!! I'm definitely addicted, but it's a good addiction.. right? lol
Dirty Hands and Lesson Plans
I had to laugh when I read this, because that was me a few months ago! I watched one, and then two, and after that it was downhill from there. I filled most of my DVR with all of the SVU episodes. It's addicting, isn't it!?!
Learning Is Something to Treasure
You I know I love SVU 🙂 I'm going to check out Sherlock!!!! Have you seen the show Person of Interest???? It's really great too!
I completely know what you mean about freaking out at every little thing after watching those shows!! I no longer let myself watch them if I'm alone 🙂
