It has been asserted that a major number of the communities appreciate the Television shows based on the criminal activities. In this essay, I will discuss a reason for interest in such TV shows and its’ positive and negative influences on the society.
To commence, it is the thrill and suspense that render the public to watch the crime-based movies and the Television programmes. One cannot predicts what the outcome is going to be. To illustrate, a Bollywood movie, XYZ, is based on a girl, murdered by an unknown culprit, who is the daughter of a famous Doctor. After an hour of a thrilling investigation by a police officer in the movie, her mother is found to be a killer as she was not her biological mother, but adopted child as the Doctor was infertile.
Moving forward, the television programmes are arranged in a way to give a positive lesson to its’ audience. For instance, a culprit is identified and put behind the bars in most of the programmes. Therefore, the audience feels the fear to commit any type of crime. In addition, the crime-based shows are a good source of entertainment and can prove a good source of releasing the stress of the day.
On the other hand, such type of TV shows is not without the negative impacts on a society. For example, the teenagers often inspired from the techniques about how to plan a crime and try to imitate the scene. The result is obviously not good, but some commit because they considered real life as a scene of the movie. So, these shows may be considered a source of increasing crime in a society.
To conclude, I reiterate that the suspense in the crime-based TV shows is the main reason for interest in watching it. While the aforementioned shows can be a source of entertainment, it can influence the society in a negative way which could raise the crime ratio in society.
