What’s Worth Watching: Saturday Night Lady Trouble
Killer Crush (Saturday, 8/7c, Lifetime)
A Bone to Pick: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery (Saturday, 9/8c, Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies and Mysteries)
It could be an embarrassment of riches, or it could be just an embarrassment, but basic cable is offering two top-tier (everything’s relative) mindless made-for-TV movies tonight. Feel like watching a nut? Lifetime’s got Killer Crush, about pretty coed Paige (Big Love‘s Daveigh Chase). She’s got thing for her professor (which is absolutely normal), so she gets a job caring for his ailing wife (which is absolutely not). Soon Paige is saying things like “I know he loves me, I can see it in his eyes” and swinging a candlestick like she’s a Yankee and the wife’s head is…you get it.
If good girls are more your style, Hallmark and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries are simulcasting A Bone to Pick: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery, the first in a series of planned adaptations of the Charlaine Harris-penned book series. Full House‘s Candace Cameron Bure stars as Aurora, a small town librarian who obsesses over true crimes. When a local woman dies suspiciously, of course Aurora going to solve the case before the cops. Can’t choose between Paige and Aurora and don’t want to waste space on your DVR? Toggle between them both. Paige might kill you, but then Aurora can solve your murder.
