2006 shows were getting worse and worse but this one was horrible.

Here's why:

The killer's reason for killing teen boys was that he has Multiple Sclerosis and wanted them to know they didn't have everything to live for because he didn't (he was 54) since the script makes MS terminal. BOO Hoo pity-party murderer.

I have MS and I am just fine and not jealous of anyone.

IT IS NOT TERMINAL!!! People with MS are in the 85-95% range of living as long as their peers without MS. FACT. Had I watched this show in 2006 I would have sued the idiot writer and CBS. Not only was the reason fictional, but it was just a bad dull show like most of 2006 so far on Ion.

This is not the first show that I've seen that has made this false statement. The writer must get around - but not to any fact based checking.
