Enough Already! :'(
on September 12, 2013
What can I say? I like things from the I.D. channel but (honestly) -- even with the disclaimer -- this was far too raw for me.
After 3 episodes, I must call it quits.
Because while I understand that the world can be a wicked place, I don't always want to know just how wicked/evil it is.
Because sometimes (and for some people) the suffering of the innocent can haunt you...
Because most times (if not always) there is simply NOTHING redemptive (or entertaining) about sexual sadists and the pleasure they gain from subjecting others to their sick and defiled mental and/or physical wanderings...
This program (while informative) could not silence the voice inside my head that kept reminding me that it was not "good" for me. Nor could it help me not to think about the victims and their families.In addition (particularly in this first episode) it could not quiet the distress I felt in knowing that there are parents who, by their depraved actions, create a heart of depravity in their own children. (For longer than I care to remember, I will be reminded of what her father told her and did to her on the evening of her mother's death... Having suffered another horrendous end, only by the grace of God would it be possible for her to end up being someone other than who and what she became. When it's clear that the perpetrator is also the victim? Nothing entertaining about it. Only fills my heart with sorrow which I really don't need...)
Finally it became too much for me to know that there are women who would be, could be, complicit in such acts. (Episode 3 - allowing your husband to rape his own child and you being a part of it -- what more can be said...)
Don't get me wrong. I love forensic type programs but...
This program is about the utter destruction that 2 depraved hearts (joined together) can bring about against the innocent for nothing other than their own pleasure. In it the worst of what can be found in a man and a woman is lived out. It's about fantasy's becoming real, hearts becoming hard, and consciences becoming seared.
All in all, the "realness" of it all is too much for me.
Just too much...
