The Lizzie Borden Chronicles on Lifetime

Anybody else watching this show? Lizzie, played as a cold-blooded sociopath by Christina Ricci, is racking up quite the body count so far. I'm curious to see how they're going to sustain this as ongoing series. How many people have to missing before the Fall River authorities figure out that Lizzie is up to no good again?

Re: The Lizzie Borden Chronicles on Lifetime

I hadn't heard of this one. The last such version I saw was the Elizabeth Montgomery movie, The Legend of Lizzie Borden. Is this one alright?

Re: The Lizzie Borden Chronicles on Lifetime

There was a new TV-movie, Lizzie Borden Took an Ax, about a year ago. It got good ratings, so now we're getting a TV series continuing Lizzie's adventures after the famous murder trial. There have been two episodes so far . . . and Lizzie has killed at least three more people already . . . .

At this point, I can't really recommend it with a straight face. We're talking guilty pleasure here, but I'm curious to see where it goes. And, yes, one should probably put any concerns about historical accuracy out of one's head, since, last I heard, the real Lizzie was not running around killing people after her trial!

(FYI: the old Elizabeth Montgomery movie is now out on DVD as well.)

I've seen the season premiere.

It's like somebody at Lifetime said "We need our own 'Dexter'" and somebody else said "Let's make Lizzie Borden into one. It's not like she can sue us now..."

Re: The Lizzie Borden Chronicles on Lifetime

What's with the music choices and the switches to slow motion mood? Good thing Christina Ricci is enjoyable to watch in this because I really can't imagine this being more than a silly show. It's odd.

The music is really jarring and distracting and is almost enough to drive me away from the show, but Ricci keeps drawing me back in.
