I'm wondering, do other women out there have the same guilty pleasure that I do? It's called "Lifetime Movie Network" where you will find one horrific movie after another, but I find them deliciously horrific. Today's 9:00 viewing "Silencing Mary" stars a 1998 Melissa Joan Hart, football players harass a crusading coed whose roommate was raped by the star quarterback, and the 11:00 hour is "Cyber Seduction: His Secret Life." A 16 yr old struggles with academics and athletics after an acquaintance introduces him to Internet pornography.
They make it easy for us, next to the list of movies they have little pictures with descriptions of "madness" "love/lust" "thrilling" "vengeance" and "justice." These movies are the final resting place for the Kelly McGillis and Justine Bateman's of the world, you know the stars that made it big once and then started aging or lost their box office. I do believe that once a star makes a movie for The Lifetime Channel they have jumped the shark.
I was talking to my brother's boyfriend Denton, when the subject of the Lifetime Channel came up, he became very animated and said to me "OH, one day when Brad was at work and I was at home, I WATCHED THOSE LIFETIME MOVIES ALL DAY LONG...I LOVE THEM!" To which I replied in a very high octave "SO DO I!" and then we proceeded to discuss our admiration for these cinematic marvels.
Tim has come home after work and 'caught' me watching this channel. He will usually walk over by me, look up at the t.v. for a few seconds and then say this "what in the hell are you watching?" Then I reply "an amazing film for women."
