We're back, baby! Its the holiday season, so hoop-de-doo and dickery dock. Saddle up and come watch this schlock. Our good friends at UpTV sent us a screener for A Christmas Switch. We are 1) Shocked we are on a PR list and 2) not ready for this christmas movie that even Michelle had to as "WTF?".
Hi! Miss us? We missed you. Did you have a good first day of school? We hope so because our rewatch of ABC After School specials is back for the next two episodes. We learned all about divorce and Leif Garrett in this week's episode, "Me and My Dad's New Wife"
When mustaches and the Dutch and exploding boats combine, you get Night Watch, the sequel to a previous film we watched, Detonator (aka Death Train). And not only did we watch the sequel in honor of our 2nd anniversary, we brought back the guest who introduced this film series to us in the first place, Ollie Brady!
Our series of sequels for our 2 year anniversary continues with this Christmas movie from Hallmark.
You know, for anniversaries, you should get gifts. Whoever gifted us this should have attached a receipt so we could return it to the cinematic equivalent of a Tuesday Morning that this film came from.
Good news is we find out about Steph's new hero who apparently works for TxDOT.
Remember back in 2016 when we discovered the most Lifetime Movie to Ever Lifetime aka Stalked By My Doctor starring Eric Roberts? Well hold on to your butts because they made a sequel.
In honor of our 2nd anniversary, we are revisiting some of our favorite films that have had sequels made so we HAD to watch Stalked By My Doctor 2 : The Return. Spoiler alert : Eric Roberts is still AMAZING. Also Steph gets to say the phrase "shit tea" and actually have it mean something in relation to this movie.
THIS. MOVIE. HAS. EVERYTHING!
It has a wedding planner and private planes and a dog. And is still the wackadoo fare you love from Lifetime. We watched The Husband She Met Online
Have you missed campy, scenery chewing, Lifetime movies? So have we. So this week, we watched Psycho Wedding Crasher starring Joan Van Ark from Knots Landing. Steph also had to explain to Michelle what Knots Landing was. Also there is an actress named Fiona Vroom and we get an update on what Steve Guttenberg is doing these days
What happens when two Royal obsessed friends have no sleep and some mimoas and a BBC news feed to keep them company? Well, its this. ITS 2 HOURS! Watch the royal wedding again and try and sync this up. Its impossible but try. We talk about hats and bell sleeves and why Prince Phillip looks the way he does and the impact of representation and why little Charlotte is our favorite member of the Royal Family.
Lifetime movies are back, baby! We watched Sleeper or My Husband's Secret Life, depending on who you ask. We wonder what spies in New Zealand are like and learn you can buy KGB shit on ebay.
While Stephanie is off soaking in Royal Watch 2018 IRL, Michelle is joined by Dawn from Hunting Houses and Beckett to the Future to talk about My Summer Prince. We find out what happens when Michelle actually takes notes about a movie and what it takes to make it in the world of fictional Royal PR
Royal Wedding Watch 2018 continues with something comparable to really bad deja vu. As a follow-up to watching Hallmark's William and Catherine, we decided to watch Lifetime's William and Kate. Basically, we took one for the team and watched the same movie twice. As a bonus, Michelle recaps two additional royal-themed Hallmark movies, Royal Hearts and Royal Matchmaker.
We are just under 2 months away from the Royal Wedding, 2018 edition so Michelle and Stephanie watched the made for TV movie about Wills and Kate. No, not the popular one. The crappy one Hallmark made in 2011. Also, witness the worst casting for Princess Diana ever caught on film. Also, Jean Smart from Designing Women plays Camilla Parker Bowles and Victor Garber plays prince Charles. We can't make this shit up. It's William and Cate : A Royal Romance.
You asked. We Answered. We watched the 2016 remake of Mother May I Sleep With Danger, starring James Franco, Tori Spelling and a bunch of emo teens. This movie had like 97% more blood and 100% more My Chemical Romance knock off tunes. We didn't hate it. And sometimes thats the best review we can give.
This movie is about as far as you can get from our normal fare. We were joined by Ollie Brady from the Best Acquaintances podcast to talk about the movie Detonator. Or Death Train. The movie so nice, they named it twice. This film stars Patrick Stewart, Pierce Brosnan, Christopher Lee and the dude who played Buffalo Bill in Silence of the Lambs. It also stars a death train. Ya'll, this movie has like, 200% more explosions than we've ever seen on Lifemark

Welcome to the first of what feels like an endless installment of Meghan Markle movies. Kicking of Markle season is Dater's Handbook from Hallmark. This movie has just enough mini-golf to keep us interested for a good 20 or 30 minutes. Also a middle aged woman who loves REO Speedwagon so we get a glimpse of what Steph will be like in about 15 years. We also get to hear Michelle swoon over Ted Bundy. As if this movie wasn't weird enough.
Did you miss when we watched A Christmas Prince? Have no fear because this movie is EXACTLY the same. Its A Royal Winter from Hallmark. Michelle and Steph talk about a new, much more royal adjacent rating system for these movies. Also there's a PSA about why your souvenir hat shouldn't matter when you find yourself in an alley with a stranger.
We are going back to our roots with this 1999 Lifetime classic, Ultimate Deception. It stars Yasmine Bleeth and Richard Greco and a whole lot of over the top acting. Stephanie is so very very into it. Plus we learn about the time that Michelle's grandparents turned a crib into a bar
Well the weather outside is frightful, but this movie is kinda delightful? I mean, its not great but I didn't want to rip my eyeballs out so bonus?
Playing the part of Michelle this week from the Beckett To The Future podcast (https://www.beckettfuturepod.com/), its Rachel Rosing
So sit back with a warm cup of cocoa, put on your best pair of Converse and settle in for a tale of romance and what happens when cousins marry to preserve a royal bloodline.
No, not THAT Home for the Holidays. You mean you haven't heard of the 1972 ABC Made For TV Movie starring Jessica Walter, Sally Field and Walter Brennan? Well now you have. Its kinda like that other Home For The Holidays but like real 70's and real murdery. We might have found our new favorite Christmas movie.
Michelle and Stephanie take a moment to talk about some things they are thankful for. Mostly its food and British Comedy. So relax, put on your eatin' pants, curl up with some leftovers and find out some of Stephanie and Michelle's favorite things.
We know its November. We know Christmas is 6 weeks away. Do we care? No. Christmas is officially on here at Lifemark studios. This week, we watched Window Wonderland. It has Naomi Judd who is absolute perfection. And department store windows which are decidedly less perfect.
Happy Halloween, Lifemarkers! Michelle totally pulled a trick when making Stephanie watch this movie. Its like the necco wafers of Halloween movies. We watched the Disney Original Movie Don't Look Under The Bed. Also, Steph and Michelle try to figure out the physics behind the Boogie Man, Beautiful Mind like.
Happy Shocktober, boys and ghouls! Ready to get scared? There is a whole lot of murder in this week's movie, Ten: Murder Island. Sadly, there's not a lot of plot. But there IS a lot of strobe lights, so we'll call this one even.
Stephanie's fear of teenagers is confirmed with this week's movie, Fab Five: The Texas Cheerleader Scandal Michelle takes us through all our options when it comes to Cheerleader magazines. Also we find out that cheerleader magazines are a thing.
Michelle and Stephanie are back. Hallmark Movies are back. Sorrento Farms is back. That's right! It's the sequel to Autumn in the Vineyard, Summer in the Vineyard. We catch up with Frankie and Nate and check in on that llama, Mittens. Also, Stephanie nearly died at a museum this week and Michelle learns about tacos.
