WAY too many commercials
John Waters plays the host in this half-hour show that shows us true cases where people get married and eventually one murders the other.
The opening two episode feature last night was OK. The first has a young sex woman marrying an older man for his money. When it becomes obvious to him that she doesn't love him, he intends to divorce here. He figures the pre-nup she signed will protect him...but it might not. It's OK--pretty well-acted and done.
The second was better. A funeral house owner marries a beautiful woman. She eventually falls in love with a stud at work. She intends to leave her husband but he refuses to let go...at all. This episode was better acted and Had a real gruesome murder (within TV standards though).
John Waters was somewhat amusing as the host but he seems a bit TOO serious. Hopefully he'll lighten up in later episodes. The main problem was Court TV's LONG commercial breaks. They went on forever and got dull real quick. I think I might wait for this to come on DVD--the commercials really got annoying. Worth catching.
