Oct 21, 2016

We are well into our Shocktober celebrations on Lifemark, so Michelle and Stephanie get in touch with their "basic" side and watch Growing The Big One, which is about pumpkins.   Not porn.  We swear its not porn.  And it has Shannon Doherty from 90210.  And a Pumpkin King.  And webcams.  So maybe its kinda like porn.


Oct 14, 2016

We are well into Shocktober and what makes a better Halloween story than real murder, so we watched Lizzie Borden Took an Axe starring Christina Ricci.  We finally found a movie we really liked.  Only took 5 months but we did it.  We learn why pears are the least convincing fruit and dig deeper into Michelle's true crime obsession.

Oct 7, 2016

On this weeks episode of Lifemark, we are getting ready for Shocktober and bring you the first of 4 Halloween themed movies.  From Hallmark, its Midnight Masquerade.  Michelle and Steph start to crack and are pretty much over this shit and want to crush the patriarchy that is everpresent in Hallmark movies.  But this movie is kinda about candy so all is forgiven.  Mostly.  Also, how many times can Activia yogurt advertise in a 2 hour movie? A LOT, we guess

Sep 30, 2016

Michelle and Stephanie get real pious and unplug for a while to discuss the Amish movie Harvest of Fire, starring Patty Duke and Jennifer Garner.  We also learn about amish erotica and Lifemark cat Dewey makes an appearance.

Sep 23, 2016

Is this a great movie or the GREATEST movie?  Also, Michelle and Stephanie might have lost their minds after this one.  It's Stalked by my Doctor from Lifetime and stars Eric Roberts.  Yes.  THAT Eric Roberts.  Watch lots of stalking, lots of inappropriate fantasies and the most chewing of scenery we've ever witnessed.  

Sep 16, 2016

Well, you knew this had to happen at some point. We watched Flowers In The Attic starring Ellen Burstyn, Heather Graham and Kiernan Shipka.  We are joined by guest, Megan Sunday, V.C. Andrews aficionado and creator of the Trapped in the Attic blog (  We talk teen sex and why it was probably a REALLY bad idea that we read this book when we were in middle school.  

Sep 9, 2016

In this week's episode of Lifemark, we watch Winnie Cooper as a wedding planner, meet the oldest 10 year old in the world and learn all about the importance of spare tires in Perfect Match from Hallmark.  We are joined by Jesse Cooper of the Turn To Page and Random Sampling podcasts.

Sep 2, 2016

Michelle is steering this shipwreck of a movie with guests Becky Wilson ( and Patrick Hamilton (@wewritegood) of the Kill By Kill Podcast (@killbykillpod on twitter).  Join us as we embark on a cruise through murder and infidelity with Deadly Honeymoon from Lifetime.  

Also, the rumors of Stephanie's demise have been greatly exaggerated and she'll be back for next week


Aug 26, 2016

Stephanie is joined this week by Wendy Mays of the Pet Cinematary Podcast ( to watch The Rose Cafe, a Canadian made for tv movie from 1988, so you know its just like the regular American made for tv movies, but like 35% more polite and with free health care.  This movie is the first of the Shades Of Love movie series so you know there are more of these cinematic wastes to come.  Also, Parker Stevenson is in it! 

Aug 19, 2016

We are joined this week by Clint Worthington of the Alcohollywood Podcast (  We watched Cyber Seduction.  We don't know how we feel about this movie.  We just know its not great.  Or even good.  Also, we take a nostalgic trip back to what internet porn was like when Geocities was all the rage.  Also, teen sex is scary. Fact  

Aug 5, 2016

This week on Lifemark, Michelle and Stephanie talk Ladies Of The House, starring Florence Henderson, Pam Grier and Richard Roundtree.  That's right! Mrs Brady is in a movie with Shaft and Foxy Brown.  Amazingly, no one gets called a Jive Turkey.  Oh and Stephanie totally cried during this movie and she feels just as embarrassed as you'd expect


Jul 28, 2016

From Lifetime, it's The Inherited! There is a spooky house and all kind of creepy townsfolk and they would have gotten away with it too if it weren't for that meddling dog.  Also, ghosts want to listen to you have sex.

Jul 22, 2016

Never has gluten tasted so deadly.  We watched the Hallmark movie Murder She Baked : A Chocolate Chip Cookie Mystery with Sammi C from the Highly Illogical Newsletter ( & @spockgrrl on twitter).  We also try to figure out why how so much whipped cream could be used on one cup of black coffee

Jul 15, 2016

We learn all about the Mormon hole, which is probably, pretty much, what you think it is.  We are joined by Erin Gambrill, host of the Ladies Who Library Podcast.  We also talk about what Michelle would do if she wanted to murder someone and the sexual advances that only a kitten calendar can bring.

Jul 8, 2016

Ya'll! It should have been better.  Billy Dee Williams was in it! It should have been amazing.  Instead, we are left with one of the worst Lifetime movies we've watched so far.  We do get a lot of Costas Mandylor in this 1995 Jennie Garth film.  

We were joined this week by Josh Lucas from the Prefer Not to podcast.  Give his show as listen at and follow on twitter @pntcast.

Happy Birthday, America! We got you this podcast episode about a movie that has about ttttthiiiiiisss much to do with July 4th.  There is a lot of ice cream and a lot of bad music in this movie that has about as much conflict as an episode of Dora The Explorer.

Jun 17, 2016

Ok. Time Out.  We watch the painfully unexciting Unauthorized Saved By The Bell Story from Lifetime.  There's drinking! And karate! And $20 a week allowances.  And not much else. We are joined by Greg Moseley and discuss the possibility of Tyler Durden as the 7th star of Saved by the Bell.
