Cape Town – I’m back with the second instalment of My Secret Netflix Obsession. In the first article I revealed my obsession with Outback Truckers. (Read more here.)

Now allow me to take you down the back alleys of Netflix yet again as I share the deep and dark hidden world of the online streaming service’s most random shows!

My secret obsession this week is a reality show like no other. It’s filled with blood and gore and so much more!

SHOW: How Clean Is Your Crime Scene

SECRET RATING: 3/5

SEASONS: 1 season (10 episodes)

WHAT IS IT ALL ABOUT?:

At crime and accident scenes around Oakland, California, Neal Smither and his hard-working crew clean the messes that criminals and cops leave behind.

WHAT I THOUGHT:

As far as reality shows go this one is pretty damn weird!

Neal and his team have one of the worst jobs in the world – cleaning up where other people die. The show doesn’t hold back. Forget about blurring out the blood and gore – How Clean Is Your Crime Scene shows it all.

The guys that work for Neal are pretty chill about it all but they have a hardcore job and are on call 24/7. Because death keeps no schedule. They clean up everything from shootings and car crashes to suicides and decomposed bodies.

The lads also have to clean and scrub houses that have been neglected or trashed. In one episode they have to clean a toilet that has been blocked for years! (Eeuw!)

Another side of Neal’s business is transporting bodies to the morgue or funeral houses. In one of the episodes a group of guys learn how to handle dead bodies, but only one guy is left standing at the end as all the others just can’t cope with the stress of this very weird job.

SHOULD YOU WATCH IT?:

If you’re obsessed with everything strange and weird and curious about stuff you never get to see in your everyday life then this show is for you. It’s sobering to be confronted with death in such a clinical and straightforward way.

It does make you think about your own mortality and how important it is to embrace each day.

Definitely don’t watch this show while you’re eating or having dinner and stay away if the sight of blood and brains make you faint!
