Growing up I was always a little more mature than most kids. As a preteen I was watching shows that had a lot of adult situations. My parents tried to monitor what I watched, or at least my Mom did. My Dad never really cared what I watched. For instance he took me to see Bad Boys 2 in theatres. At the time I was about 12 or 13. The only reason I was at all uncomfortable was because I was watching it with my Dad. On the other hand my Mom wouldn't let me watch 8 Mile and to this day is upset that my Dad let me watch it.
As a younger child I didn't really watch anything to bad. Mostly I was outside or cleaning (big neat freak). In fact I don't remember watching TV much as a young adult at all. So it didn't affect much of my viewing habits now. I guess I have always been drawn to mysteries and adult points of view/situations.
