Why is America so fond of television series about serial killers?

The reason is because we are the most violent group brought up in this type of civilized times. We laugh at death and misfortune and constantly want to see others enduring it so we feel better about ourselves. Its just like why alot of the people did drugs in the hippy era, keeping with the times.


Aren't you the one who daydreams about killing people?

I don't like watching them, because they are so fake. I can't stand looking at the hired actors re-creating the crime that happened

Well, you see. People in genre enjoy blood and carnage. Look at old stories and the such. We had a coliseum in which case people were killed. As we advance we want more creative gore.
Now then, to make things creative, how would you do such a thing? Well, I can think of ways. Cult, Serial Killers, and a Battle Royal. However, showing off a television series with a cult is very difficult. You have to give the people of the cult a reason to kill. Then you have to deal with convincing people not to do the same thing, whilst convincing the people who are in a specific religion that you don't mean anything offensive to them and keep them interests. Popularity would struggle.
A Battle Royal, would be efficient, I mean surely you've read the manga Battle Royal? Honestly, I'm surprised I don't see many of these myself but I believe it has something to do with the actors, the equipment, and making it suitable for television. Honestly, I would say it would be too much for TV but I could've sworn I saw something similar to one in a preview.
A Serial Killer. More efficient with one person doing the killing most of the time. That one person could create dozens of ways to kill and keep things clean. While escaping someone who usually wishes to jail them. Now tell me, who doesn't like a criminal mastermind?

I know I'm not being too clear but I type this before I go to sleep, which is a bad idea because now I'll be on a thinking streak until I final knock myself into sleep. Figuratively speaking anyway.

Two reasons:

1. Shows like Friends and other annoying sitcoms get boring.

2. Everyone has once in their life fantasized or wondered about the life of a serial killer; TV is the best way to enjoy hearing about it (fictional or not) without getting freaked out.

I agree. I've come to realize that this is a pretty morbid society. We embrace violence and it doesn't help that we're force fed it. There's nothing else to watch it seems. Damned marketing people!

I watch shows like House, Lost, Supernatural, and Kitchen Nightmares.

Some of those may contain a bit of violence, but it's not centered around it.

Stop generalizing.
