An Axe to Grind: Episode 3

Justin and Erik take on Lifetime’s “The Lizzie Borden Chronicles” in a weekly podcast about murder, bloodspray and costume porn. Week three sees two (or three?) kills of the week for the price of one. Lizzie’s backstory appears to be written by Nick Cave and Skipjack sleazes his way into Erik’s and Justin’s hearts. The show takes a side trip into Peaky Blinders and we ship Cole Hauser/Mrs. InnKeeper hard.

But the OTP is Emma Borden and TallCop.

    I really, really have to watch this show. It sounds like a drunk Guy Ritchie fever dream after he partied all night with Tim Burton and Maggie Smith. For the first time, it ALMOST sounded like you guys admired the episode on some deeply twisted level.

      I think we’re both fond of Ricci and Duvall at this point. While the show happening around them is madness, they’re holding it together with their performances. The show may have hit a groove that is equal parts terrible and terrific in trashy wrapping paper.

    I second your idea for a Skipjack series– sitcom or one hour, either works… Especially if he kidnaps a kangaroo at a zoo. I feel he needs a boss that whenever something goes wrong on a murder or a robbery shouts “SKIPJAAAAACCCK!!!!” I caught up with the show this weekend and its like the writers were psychic and Skipjack was all over the episode, blackmailing Lizzie, drinking beer, getting stabbed in the groin/leg area, and in general being all Skipjacky. I don’t THINK he’s dead in that alley– THOUGHT I heard him breathing– actually he can’t be dead– he’s Skipjack!

    I’m so happy you have these podcasts, cause I can’t watch the first two episodes of the show now. Have to start on Episode 3. Know your podcast will help me catch up on the important stuff I need to know. :P
