You want to stop watching, but just can't.

3 Terribly Thrilling Crime-Related Specials You Won't Be Able To Stop Watching

Crime shows, specials, and documentaries are some of the most popular things on television. Shows such as "Dateline," "Criminal Minds" and "48 Hours" have paved the way for fictional and nonfictional accounts of various crimes. Although these programs are often scary, they are also often impossible to stop watching. Netflix has stepped up its game in the documentary area and has released a few insanely good specials.

Here are three crime-related specials you won't be able to stop watching.

1. "The Ted Bundy Tapes"

This documentary was just released by Netflix, but has been talked about non-stop since. It has received a lot of heat for possibly romanticizing the character of Bundy, but this documentary provides an insight like no other. Actual tapes and footage of the Bundy case reveal his charisma and charm towards everyone around. Just a short four episodes will have you glued to the tv until it is over.

2. "Abducted In Plain Sight"

This crime special goes into detail about the horrifying abduction of a young girl by one of her good family friends. However, this one is taken to the next level because the abducted girl herself is present in the documentary and gives her first-hand account of the events that took place. The insanity and tragedy of this story will keep you hooked for the entire 90 minutes, as the story gets more bizarre as it continues.

3. "American Crime Story: The Assassination Of Gianni Versace"

Although portrayed through a fictional retelling, the cast of "American Crime Story" puts forth a remarkable effort in reenacting the assassination that shook Miami, and the world. This is the second season of this television show, but as each season focuses on a different event, this one focuses on the "why" of the murdering of this fashion icon. It is informative, but also beautiful and entertaining at the same time.

If crime is not your thing, steer clear of these three, but if you love a good thriller, these are for you. All three analyze and portray true events that impacted this country, and the world. They're all beautifully done and I can guarantee you won't be able to stop watching.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
