I love true crime shows.

And fake crime shows.

I can't help it, and I know I'm not alone.

My favorite crime-fighting team is of course... "Buffy and her misfit Scooby gang."

But when dealing with more real-life crime and murder, there is one name on the top of my list.

Olivia Benson. First, last, and always!

Redditor PurpleFlower99 wanted everyone to share who from entertainment we would call if we ended up a corpse, because we know they'd find our killer. Or killers.

So they asked:

"Which fictional detective would you trust to solve your murder?"

Oh... I forgot the cast of Criminal Minds. I love you Reed!

"Benoit Blanc."


"Blanc took the time to talk kindly and respectfully to the victim's elderly mother. I would want someone that considerate in the room when my family got questioned."


Hey D!

"Dirk Gently, so the murder can be solved holistically."


"So true he’d figure it out in the weirdest way possible which is what I would want."


"Read the book. Yeah, the show didn’t do much for me either."

"Give my case to the Nine-Nine."


"You’ve made a rookie mistake, it’s alright. But its actually… NINE-NINE !!"





"Hieronymus 'Harry' Bosch."


"There’s really no other answer. I’m convinced that anyone posting anything else simply hasn’t seen the show or read the books."


"Yeah, I am too unimportant for all those other detectives. Bosch would get it done regardless."


"Scrolled too far to see this. Harry Bosch without a doubt."

"Hercule Poirot."


"The only correct answer."


Peirot Forever! Never a dull moment.

The Classic Gang

"Scooby and those meddling kids."


"Velma is the only one even attempting to do what they were hired for and even then, she can only ever piece things together after the fact. She’s either a dunce or intentionally holding back her findings from the group (maybe moral reasons)."

"Fred is freaking around with stupid crap like 'traps,' Shaggy is blazing it up off screen with his dog and Daphne is basically scamming daddy out of money with her friends on their sham business."

"They’re basically a scam service that gets brought in to validate 'paranormal' insurance claims. But somehow, while they coast on free room and board comp’d by the insurer, gets those friendly locals insurance claim denied and charged with fraud."



You Got It Ok GIFGiphy

"Columbo, 100%."


"I'd trust Columbo with my life, my death, and my mother's chili recipe."


"'Oh jeez, I shoulda thought of that.'"


The Knight



"He'd solve it, and the murderer would get a severe beating, that's a win as far as I'm concerned."


"Hands down, the detective aspect of Batman is excellent when explored properly, like the time they gave us this majestic story: Batman Black & White: Perpetual MourningSpiderman."


And so swoonworthy...

"Spencer Reid!"


"Not just Spencer but the entire BAU."


"Thought I'm the only one who'd thought of this."


The OG!

"Sherlock Holmes."


"You know how far I had to scroll to find this? He's the GOAT detective. Superhumanly smart."


Now that is quite a list of people I'd trust in my death. Avenge me.

We love movies.

Movies and entertainment save the world.

But some movies can send you into a messy place.

Some topics are just a lot to handle.

That is why some films, when done right and authentically, are just too real to experience.

No need to watch that again.

When we're kids, being an adult and getting to do whatever we want often seems like the bestest, most awesome thing we could imagine.

But not everything is better as an adult.

Jobs, responsibilities, and that weird back pain you always seem to get when you sit at your desk too long are just part of getting older. A lot of things that were awesome as a kid just don't hit the same as an adult either.

People Break Down The Creepiest Facts They Know

Life is full of mysteries. And while we seem to be cognizant of many of life's miracles, it's obvious there is still much to discover within the vastness of our existence.

Much of the world's known facts are fascinating–some even inspiring.

But there are some facts that are just downright ominous and unsettling to an extent where ignorance is bliss.

People Debate If They'd Want The Ability To Speak Every Language Or Play Every Musical Instrument

People are often impressed by those who are multilingual–mainly because they can't imagine having the ability to communicate with others in different languages themselves.

Equally respected individuals are those who can play multiple musical instruments. Sure, playing the piano alone is impressive. But if a pianist can also play the bass and drums–essentially being their own one-person band–that is also a major wow factor.

So if you had the option to have the capacity for one or the other, which would it be?
