Cheese TV

I just discovered the Lifetime Movie Network today. It's an entire channel that plays nothing but Lifetime Original Movies. I am officially never getting anything productive done again.

Just today, I'm managed to get sucked into both An Unexpected Love (a recent divorcee falls in love with her female boss -- gasp!) and Those She Left Behind (an '80s-tastic drama starring Joanna Kerns, of "Growing Pains" fame, about a man whose wife dies in childbirth and is left with a baby daughter). Between the soaring instrumental melodies, the bad acting, and the feel-good endings, it's impossible not to fall head over heels for the cheesy earnestness of these movies. And they sure manage to make a lazy Sunday even lazier.

God bless you, Lifetime.

Isn't Joanna Kerns in every single one of those movies? Or Patty-Duke Austin?

Tori Spelling is the new Shannen Doherty, who was the new Judith Light, who was the new Delta Burke.
