My girlfriend's (now ex) husband, an ex Navy Seal, called it "Lifetime: Television for weenies." Haven't watched it in a few years. Two I recall & liked:

Meredith Baxter in The Betty Broderick Story. (She puts the husband thru law school, he marries younger woman (sect), she kills them both. MB's performance was so over the top, I couldn't wait to see Part 2.

Mark Harmon in The Deliberate Stranger. He played the notorious serial killer, Ted Bundy.

I've changed over to Tru TV, 48 Hours etc. The criminal mind intrigues me.

amy - I LOVE 48 hours - that show is very intriguing!!!!

Every now and then I'll watch a lifetime movie if it's true. I'm a FoodTV junkie but I love stuff like 48 hours and some other stuff on History/Biography channels. One time, last summer, I had to leave the house because my husband was watching Christmas in July Lifetime movies - I just said.....suuuuuckeeeeeeeeer!!!! There were a bunch of beer bottles beside him so maybe he just didn't have the coordination to change the channel (j/k actually, I do wish he had been drunk )

DW watched Arm Wives one night, she said she liked it but didn't find the women very realistic in their roles. It is a fairly new show, so maybe the actress' will grow into their roles over time.

Myself, I agree Lifetime hates men so I hate em right back.

I also like A&E - the unscripted no actors/real people crime/mystery stories.

K'elf. He was probably cryin' in his beer & trying to hide the Kleenex.

The true stories, I find the most compelling. Not sure if they were on Lifetime, but, some I recall:

A story about the Menedez brothers.
Dungeons & Dragons? Billionaire Boy's Club? - w Blythe Danner


Scott & Lacy Peterson story. Can't think of the actual name of the movie.

If you missed MB in The Betty Broderick Story: A Woman Scorned, it's excellent (imo).
