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.

Mar 17, 2017

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.

Mar 10, 2017

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

Feb 24, 2017

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.

Feb 17, 2017

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.

Feb 10, 2017

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 .


Feb 3, 2017

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.

Jan 27, 2017

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.

Jan 20, 2017

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?!

Jan 6, 2017

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

Dec 23, 2016

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.

Dec 16, 2016

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.

Dec 2, 2016

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.  

Nov 18, 2016

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.

Nov 11, 2016

Hey Lifemarkers,

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.

Oct 30, 2016

We close out the spookiest month of the year with the 1978 ABC tv movie classic Initiation of Sarah, starring Morgan Fairchild, Shelly Winters and Robert Hayes.  Have you ever wondered what it would be like if Carrie and The Shining and Harry Potter all morphed into one movie?  Wonder no longer.  Plus its got co-eds in their underwear.  

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
