An Axe to Grind: Episode 6

Justin and Erik take on Lifetime’s “The Lizzie Borden Chronicles” in a weekly podcast about murder, bloodspray and costume porn. Week six sees the resolution of the majority the plotlines … almost as though this was meant to be the season finale. But that can’t be right, there are two more episodes to go. A favorite character is eulogized while we postulated what a Lifetime Avengers would look like. Erik issues a correction about Gregg Henry and Justin maintains his favorite kill of the week.

Oh, also, there was some big TallShip stuff, too.

    Ok I am listening to all these podcasts and the only problem is, I’m watching the episodes on Sunday and wanting to hear what you thought on Monday. But I have to wait until Thursday which sucks. This show is insane. INSANE! I believe the writers stay up all night doing coke and then write each episode. And somewhere along the way, the writers said, screw it, we’re not going to get any critical acclaim on a Lizzie Borden show, let’s just write the CRAZIEST STUFF WE CAN THINK OF and see if anyone notices.

    They create a bunch of characters, and include some that really existed in history, and then proceed to kill off EVERYONE ON THE SHOW. EVERYONE. There were 4 people LEFT IN FALL RIVER after the 6th EPISODE. Lizzie and Emma, and the Lawyer and the Innkeeper. THAT’S IT. And SPOILER ALERT FOR EPISODE 7… 10 PEOPLE WERE KILLED ON THE LATEST EPISODE!!! Death by Sheriff Andy (4 of Skipjack’s cronies), Death by poison beer (1 reporter), death by knife (2 abusive parents), suicide by porcelain doll (1 abused patient), the new Dr. Daterape was ripped to shreds and I THINK HE WAS EATEN ALIVE BY HIS PATIENTS, and one guy died by a TYPEWRITER TO THE HEAD and bled out in a lobster tank. Who kills 10 speaking roles in the same one-hour show??? Isn’t that a SAG violation?

    Oh, and Lizzie’s blonde and a schoolteacher now and uses the name Grimke because why not and I think she’s going to kill Bat Masterson. BAT MASTERSON. WHO IS A REAL PERSON. Somewhere there’s a rulebook on how to produce believable high-end dramas with historical accuracy and the writers just threw it right in the trash. Whatever drugs the Lizzie writers are taking, especially when they stick random music in each episode, I really wish they’d share.

    Best show on Television right now.
