Happy Easter! Happy Passover! Happy Sunday!
Despite today being a holiday for many folks, I’ve had a rough time of it for one reason or another. Do you know what will improve today? The Lizzie Borden Chronicles, that’s what. Lucky me, the first episode of the limited series premieres on Lifetime right now. Huzzah!
Here’s the original trailer:
And a clip from tonight’s episode:
Naturally I’ll be back later tonight or tomorrow with my thoughts about the premiere. Hopefully this lives up to the amount of squee that was in my head when I heard Ricci was coming back for a limited series.
In any case, if you love Lizzie Borden, may I recommend Cherie Priest’s Maplecroft? Take Lizzie and her sister, add a Lovecraftian menace from the seas, mix in some ax-wielding and general feminist badassery and you have a novel that made my Hugo nominations for this year. More soon!
