Welcome back to Lifemark : Summer Nights. We're back with another ABC after school special that is all about dead kids and onion rings. Its A Family Again. We have the stars of LA Law and Rikki Lake taking us through a journey about grief and hand cranked ice cream.
Summertime, and the livin' is easy. We all remember the joy of summer vacation but its important we don't get too complacent, falling into the peer pressure of being a cool teen.
Have no fear. All summer long, Lifemark will be here to give you the cautionary tales your youthful heart craves with Lifemark : Things We Learned This Summer. That's right. We are going pro-Lifetime and watching a dozen ABC after school specials to keep you on the straight and narrow this summer. We kick off our summer series with Schoolboy Father, starring Rob Lowe and Dana Plato. Also, ths movie is called Schoolboy Father which should clue you in to how amazing this will be.
We also talk about our patreon campaign where you can tell us what movie you want us to watch and even be a guest on our show. Visit www.patreon.com/eartrumpt for all the details.
Next week will be our one year pod-a-versary so in honor of that and Mother's day and the fact that Michelle and I have been busy saving the world, we are re-releasing our first episode - Mother May I Sleep With Danger
After talking about it for months, we finally watch the D&D cautionary tale Mazes and Monsters starring Tom Hanks. Stephanie talks about how afraid she was of D&D when she was 9 and Michelle talks about what it means to roll a "diabetes check". It was more fun than killing orcs.
Sometimes we struggle on deciding what movie to watch. And the sometimes we luck upon the most amazing made for TV gem. And that's exactly what happened this week when we found Camp Cucamonga. Have you ever wondered what would happen of George Jefferson and Urkel were in the same movie? Wonder no longer as we tie a sweet little bow on the final episode of Candace Cameron Bur-April.
We continue our journey through Candace Cameron Bur-April with her first role after Full House : Sharon's Secret. Her secret is that the ending of this movie makes no sense at all.
Candace Cameron Bur-April continues with what Michelle and Stephanie THOUGHT was a Hallmark movie but ended up being something much worse. Welcome to the first movie that made Steph actually panic about : Finding Normal
Welcome to the first film of Candace Cameron Bur-April. We start things off with the 1996 classic No One Would Tell, starring Candace Cameron and Fred Savage. Much Teens. So Bertinelli.
We wrap up Women's History Month with a real downer. Sorry about that, guys. Oddly, it pings on the Bertinelli scale so high so....bonus? It's Homeless To Harvard starring Kelly Lynch and Thora Birch. Get it!
We want to finish Women's History Month strong so this week and next week, we'll be watching some films that celebrate Badass Ladies In History. This week, we watch The Courageous Heart of Irena Sendler. We also find out what Stephanie's dog thinks of Nazis. Spoiler Alert. She's not a fan.
Happy St Patrick's Day, everyone! You know we love a theme so we watched Chasing Leprechauns from the Hallmark network. Also, this movie might have made Stephanie cry but she'll totally deny it if you ask her about it tomorrow.
I think watching Hallmark Hall Of Fame movies is like childbirth. Eventually, enough time has passed that you forget how painful it is so you stupidly do the whole thing over again.
This week, we watched Pictures of Hollis Woods, which proves that even acting powerhouses like Sissy Spacek and Viola Davis survive as terrible movie
It's finally aired! We've been waiting for Britney Ever After to be broadcast for almost a year now and this sweet day is finally here! So, what did we think of it? Just HOW frosted were fake JT's tips? And what's the deal with all that chicken? We cover it all in this week's episode of Lifemark.
Hope you all had a great Valentines day. We know ONE guy who didn't and we learn all about it in this week's movie, The Perfect Girlfriend. Spoiler alert. She's not perfect. But there is a cute dog in it so we give this movie a big thumbs up.
Happy Valentine's Day, yall! We got you a dead dad, some amphibians and a Brit with amnesia. Don't say we never did anything romantic for our listeners.
We watched Smooch starring Kelly Martin and Kiernan Shipka, where we learn about dissection and fire escapes and love. But mostly dissection .
To kick off the most romantic month, we watched The Perfect Boyfriend from Lifetime. Spoiler alert, this movie has 100% less romance than you'd expect and like 300% more murder. Also, we discuss wifi troubleshooting 101.
What do Stephen King, Miley Cyrus, Billy Joel and the Marines have in common? This movie. It's Popfan from Lifetime -- a movie that almost used Comic Sans in its opening credits. We learn about lighthouses and paint and dead parents. And that's just in the first 15 minutes.
It's inauguration day so we chose the 1978 made for TV movie The President's Mistress, starring Beau Bridges and a bunch of Russians. Presidents and Russians? What ever could go wrong?!
Happy New Year, Lifemarkers! This week's episode is brought to you by the phrases "Glue Horse" and"Chunky Kool-Aid". It's a Hallmark movie SO BAD, even Michelle didn't like it. It's A Kiss By Midnight, starring Faith Ford, Dyan Cannon and Hal Linden
After all the mushy mushy Hallmark holiday films, we needed a palate cleanser so, in honor of Jesus' birthday this week, we watched the most religious film we could find on Lifetime, Bad Sister! Watching a movie about a murderous, YouTube obsessed nun is just what Jesus would want you to watch.
Of all the holiday movies we could have watched, we watched this one -- the least Christmas of all the made for TV Christmas movies. Also, its from Lifetime but there is no murder or teen drug use so color us truly disappointed. Its like a giant lump of coal for our movie viewing eyes. But there is a glitter elf so its got that going for it.
First, a quick announcement. Lifemark is going to be moving to releasing episodes every other Friday through mid January. We'll go back to weekly releases starting January 20th.
But now, the good news! This week we watched Amish Witches! Its about.....amish witches. This is Lifetime's foray into the found footage genre and it is fantastic. And bad. But mostly fantastic. And Stephanie confesses to her fear of BOB from Twin Peaks.
Whatever happened to predictability? It came back from the dead and birthed this snoozer of this movie. We are joined again by very special guest Greg Mosley (@gmosley18 on twitter) to talk about the Unauthorized Full House Story. So come along with the whole Tanner clan! Danny Tanner brought whippets for everyone. No really. He did.
No episode this week. I get into why here. But this, more than anything, is a thank you to all our listeners

Its the least autumnal movie with the word Autumn in the title. Its Autumn In The Vineyard, which brings all the excitement of a grape jelly competition to the small screen. But the good news is there is a lot of wine. A lot of wine was also how we got through this movie.
