Lifetime’s Lizzie Borden Chronicles came to a poignant end last night with “Capsize,” guest-starring Michelle “Lady Catelyn Stark” Fairley as the fierce matriarch of the late Leslie Trotwood’s mobbed-up family. But if we’ve learned anything from this show, it’s that nobody is as fierce as Lizzie.
You gotta give The Lizzie Borden Chronicles credit; the only thing predictable about this show is how unpredictable it is (and, ok, the fact that Lizzie will off at least one other character per episode). In episode seven, “The Sisters Grimke,” the Borden sisters flee Fall River and Lizzie adopts a more fun-loving…
From episode six’s title, “The Fugitive Kind,” we have a good idea that Pinkerton detective turned (wrongfully) convicted murderer Siringo is not going to end up at the gallows. But his legal troubles get him out of Lizzie’s hair long enough for her to turn her attentions to other matters, like sabotaging her sister’s…
Romance is in the air in Fall River, but so are gushing sprays of blood. Episode five, “Cold Storage,” is the series’ halfway point, and Lizzie is now a full-fledged serial killer. Sure, she’s been coldly taking down anyone who dares get in her way for weeks now. But in this ep, she ups her psycho game considerably.
A lot of people kick the bucket on this week’s Lizzie Borden Chronicles episode, “Welcome to Maplecroft,” and shockingly — shockingly! — not all of them are done in by the divine Miss B. Our pint-sized psychopath does get the most creative kill, however, in yet another ep that mixes gore with arch, arch dialogue.
We’re three episodes into The Lizzie Borden Chronicles’ eight-ep run on Lifetime, and last night’s episode, “Flowers,” was full of dramatic twists galore — including some very gory ones that sacrificed some key characters (or seemed to, anyway). Where the hell can this show possibly go next?
Lifetime's Lizzie Borden Chronicles got off to a strong start last week, and this week's episode, "Patron of the Arts" — full of smirky stare-downs, cheeky exchanges, and plenty of gruesome special effects — suggests there's much more knowingly soapy, murderous mayhem to come. Yay!
Lizzie did it. That was heavily implied in Lizzie Borden Took An Axe, the Lifetime movie that spawned The Lizzie Borden Chronicles, which keeps that theory alive and embellishes the hell out of it. Like the film, the series stars a clearly-having-a-ball Christina Ricci; it starts after the accused murderer's acquittal.
After the success of Lizzie Borden Took An Axe, Lifetime opted to turn the Christina Ricci-starring movie into an eight-episode series, The Lizzie Borden Chronicles. It kicks off April 5, and based on new clips posted to its official site, looks to be a campy good time (with fabulous costumes ... those hats!)
Millie Brady, model and actress soon to be seen in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies as Mary, will play the lead in Lifetime's adaptation of Jean M. Auel's Clan of the Cave Bear.
Lifetime's Christina Ricci-starring Lizzie Borden Took An Axe was a hit last January, and the network is cashing in with April's eight-episode The Lizzie Borden Chronicles, a fictionalized exploration of Lizzie's post-acquittal life.
It is with a heavy heart that I report the passing of Witches of East End, a show too lacking in plot but too heavily in weird for this world. Oh, Witches of East End, what we will do without you to warm our cold Sunday nights?
It's not that this issue was one the show could ignore. Not with whole Ingrid plotline as it happened. But, man, they really wanted points for addressing it while also getting to move right along as if nothing happened.
