LOng time ago (before we got together say 14 years ago) my GF used to watch those channels a lot. Yeah back then they were named the "Victim Channel"
And that's mostly when I stopped watching the channel. It used to be good, especially the two part (or more) miniseries based on true crime (one of my fave genres) but frankly it's devolved into potraying women as victims. Frankly the plotlines have more holes than a slice of Swiss . . . and the acting just as bad.

I'd rather watch the documentaries on Investgation Discovery or binge watch either SVU or Chicago PD.

Amen! At least I can learn something, and I don't end up screaming things like, "WHAT are you doing, you stupid bitch?!" at the screen.

Seriously...look at the descriptions of some of these movies...

"Fatal Defense"
"After a home invasion, a single mother signs up for self-defense classes from a handsome martial arts instructor. But when her instructor develops a frightening obsession with her, he orchestrates an increasingly deadly array of "tests" to see if she has truly learned from his lessons. Stars Ashley Scott, David Cade, Laurie Fortier, and Sherylin Fenn. (2017)"

"Deadly Ex"
"When Gary Emerson reconnects with his high school girlfriend Valerie over a kiss at their reunion, he has no idea that Valerie took that kiss as in invitation to rekindle their youthful romance and has followed him cross-country to fan the fire of their old flame. Gary makes it clear that he and his wife Jenna are working on their marriage and that he will never love Valerie. This is unacceptable to Valerie, and now Jenna and Gary must fight for their lives and the safety of their two children while Valerie seeks retribution in her reign of terror. Natasha Henstridge, Marguerite Moreau, Jason Gerhardt, Sammi Hanratty star. (2016)"

I mean, seriously??

Heh, my latest PD of choice has been Instinct. Something about Alan Cumming...
