    16 Moments Only ID Channel Fanatics Have Experienced

    *whispers creepily under breath* "Investigate."

    1. The sweet feeling of relaxation after a long day's work when you finally get to sit down and watch some good ol' MURDER.

    Mmmmm, nothing goes better with a bottle of merlot.

    2. Your friends find your obsession with the channel a little odd.

    But there is nothing like that feeling of success when you convert them to the dark side as well.

    3. You probably know way too much about how to get away with an actual murder.

    Seriously?? He didn’t even wear gloves?? What is this, amateur hour?

    4. You can guess who-dun-it in the first five minutes.

    ABC / Via

    Nice try, Unusual Suspects.

    5. You're pretty sure you’d be a great crime scene investigator.

    BBC / Via

    Pull out the luminol and away we go!

    6. You find online dating especially challenging, thanks to Web of Lies.

    ABC / Via

    Facebook stalking is essential. You just want to find true love, not be totally dense like the people you see on the show.

    7. You always make sure you have an alibi.

    ABC / Via

    You'd better believe I keep EVERY receipt, I’m gonna leave one hell of a paper trail.

    8. You never trust life insurance policies.

    Next thing you know you're going to ask me to walk down the stairs in front of you! NO SIR!

    9. You freak out every time you hear a strange sound in the middle of the night.


    It's a murderer, it's always a murderer. God forbid someone new moves in next door. Nightmare Next Door, Fear Thy Neighbor — I know a pattern when I see one.

    10. You can easily guess the sentencing.

    ABC / Via

    The jury is definitely gonna find him guilty. Probably seconnd degree at least, it wasn’t premeditated.

    11. You're totally soothed by Keith Morrison’s deep dulcet voice.

    And you giggle at his strange emphasis on certain words.

    12. You watch the news and think, “This is gonna make a great 20/20 episode."

    I'm excited and scared.

    13. The titles for the episodes are pretty hilarious.

    Who the (Bleep) Did I Marry? Has some GOLDEN ones. I mean, "Don Juan Down Under" and "Possum and the Snake" are gold, just to name a few.

    14. When an episode actually catches you by surprise, you're shook.

    NBC / Via

    I thought I’d seen it all!

    15. The feeling of an unsolved mystery is indescribable.

    CBS / Via

    JUST TELL US, PAULA ZAHN!!! *frantically Googles for updates*

    16. And finally, that moment when you realize you have been watching this freakin' channel for ten hours straight, and you don't even care.
