The Way I See It!

I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.

I Understand Mandy Patinkin's Comment of Destructive to My Soul!


I was a big fan of NBC’s Law and Order SVU (Special Victim’s Unit) and had to stop watching the show after a few years as the show degraded into most episodes about child rape and child murder.


I also liked CBS’s Criminal Minds but that show evolved devolved into rape and murder as most story lines.


Now I understand that in the real world these things happen and are a fact of life, but when a show devotes and evolves devolves into that dark world episode after episode it becomes something fair less than it can be. 


We use TV to escape reality and to help balance out the Good versus Evil that we see in our daily lives.  Where the bad guys are caught and justice is served.  We look to the writers to explore the dark and depths but not to be lazy.  We look to the writers that have signs of the good in people and not just the bad.  A show has to have more dimensions to it and not just one subject unless they want to change the name of the shows to properly reflect what the devolved into.



Mandy Patinkin: 'Criminal Minds' was 'destructive to my soul'



"The biggest public mistake I ever made was that I chose to do 'Criminal Minds' in the first place," said the Emmy-winning actor.  "I thought it was something very different.  I never thought they were going to kill and rape all these women every night, every day, week after week, year after year."


"It was very destructive to my soul and my personality," he adds about his role as profiler Jason Gideon.  "After that, I didn't think I would get to work in television again."
