The Broke and The Bookish is a TV freebie in honor of all the shiny new shows about to start. Now it's no secret that I watch a lot of crime shows and I've noticed that there are some themes that are repeated a lot so I thought it'd be fun to catalog them!
1. It is never a mannequin, a pile of clothes, or trash. (All of them)
2. Every crime can be connected to either the Navy or Marine Corps if you try hard enough thus making it under the jurisdiction of NCIS (All NCIS franchise shows)
3. Sometimes the CIA calls in NCIS for retrieval missions in other countries (NCIS: Los Angeles)
4. All you need to do is type in a few keywords and you'll discover all deaths and strange incidents at a residence along with any rumors of haunting instantly. Also, wifi is everywhere. (Supernatural)
5. Armored car drivers have the most dangerous profession on the planet. From what I can tell in the average career span is about 6 weeks before you either become the inside man in a complicated robbery or are killed or in some way restrained by the inside man. (Pretty much all of them at what time or another)
6. DNA takes no more than an hour and is always obtainable. (All of them)
7. If you are walking your dog and then said dog suddenly runs into a wooded area and refuses to come out you're about to discover a body. (All)
8. Just don't go jogging - no good can come from that. (All)
9. It's not the first scare that gets you it's the second. If your cat knocks over something on a table and it startles you when you look up from cleaning up whatever it is there will be a serial killer standing there to grab you. (Criminal Minds)
10. All forensics experts also carry guns and investigate murders - after they get their results from the DNA matching which took about 20 minutes of course. (CSI - all franchises)
