Hi Guys,

Today, when I was translating a movie for my parents, I came across this situation. Criminal forensic was talking about the suspect.

.

.
"Anyway, he was really into model trains". (He probably was a fan of the model trains, they found one later at his flat.)

"You know, the way a serial killer's really into pets." (I have absolutely no idea, what was the point of this sentence...:-(((

can you guys help me with the second sentence...

many thanks

if you understood the first, you should be able to understand the 2nd, better than us who haven't seen the show ...
aren't they the same meaning

Yeah, maybe the point of the second sentence is something like: "You know, how serial killers always has a hobby...."

But I wonder, if the synonym list of the to word "pet" includes the word "hobby"......
to be into smth. - to be interested in it or to like it very much
pet, according to my dictionary, can also mean a favoured thing[item].

OK, generally speaking, serial killers move on to killing human beings after spending some years killing/torturing animals (pets). Nearly all of them have an animal torture history, and this is quite well known. So it's a sarcastic sentence - it refers to the fact that serial killers like to kill/torure animals. So, liking something in the way that serial killers like pets, is not a good thing!
