Okay but they’re not the brightest bulbs in the pack

I do like the show. Or, rather, I like the concept of it. I like that at the beginning of every episode they let you know how the show is structured. More shows should do this. I get aggravated because they don’t seem to be the smartest women in the world. For example, they talk about a victim who was born in the late 1960s but the crime occurs in the 1980s. They mention something about a telegram and go on and on about it being the 1960s and and what was involved in sending a telegram in the 60s, yada, yada, yada. But the telegram they’re referring to was sent in the 1980s. They don’t even know what time period they’re covering in their own case. And in another episode, I think they meant to use the word “ecstatic” but they said “eclectic” or rather “egg-cletic.” These are minimal issues for most listeners I’m sure, but they make me crazy. I mean, it isn’t that hard to keep your dates straight and use words that you actually understand.
