killer hair 2Lifetime and Lifetime Movie Network are always so great at bringing book adaptation to TV in movie form, and tonight’s premiere is no different.  KILLER HAIR, starring Maggie Lawson (PSYCH), is adapted from Ellen Byerrum’s popular Crime of Fashion mystery series (also on the horizon, HOSTILE MAKEOVER).  I’m glad they decided to tackle the series, because the first one of the bunch is 100% fun, with all kinds of over the top absurdity thrown in!

KILLER HAIR tells the story of Lacey Smithsonian (if that’s not a book character’s name, I don’t know what is), a former crime reporter, forced to be a fashion reporter (fashion crime) at a less-than-stellar newspaper.  When one of her friends, Angela, dies in an apparent suicide, the terrible haircut she’s laid to rest in makes Lacey and her best friend Stella believe that Angela was murdered.

The story immediately delves into adorable Lacey (Maggie Lawson is fantastic – she has “star” written all over her) getting herself way in over her head as she works to solve the case.  Conveniently along for the ride is her ex from Colorado, new in DC, and helping her, reluctantly, to solve the murders that keep popping up.

The rest of the cast is really good, too, with Finola Hughs and Mary McDonnell showing up to give solid acting cred.  This is the kind of movie that helps you escape from what’s happening in the world around you, and is enjoyable through and through. Do yourself a favor and tune in!

I don’t know what you’re doing tonight, but I know what you should be doing.  After cheering on the Phillies (yeah, you heard me, cheer on my team!), you should turn on Showtime, and check out the season premiere of the increasingly addictive original series THE TUDORS.

As you might recall either from your knowledge of British history, or your obsession with Season 1 and 2, Anne Boleyn, Henry’s second wife, has been beheaded, and he’s now married to the lovely Plain Jane Seymour.  Jane has made it her mission to bring the disgraced Mary Tudor back to court (in the process, shunning Lady Elizabeth).  Henry quickly tires of Jane, and [spoiler alert though it's common knowledge] pretty soon, Henry’s out chasing skirt, and ends up married to Anne of Cleves (too ugly to be Queen?  I don’t think so, as played by Joss Stone). 

Though the real Henry was certianly not as hot as Jonathan Rhys Meyers, the history that’s being retold in these episodes is brilliant.

If you can’t get enough of THE TUDORS, you should check out what some of my friends from Showtime have put together to make all of the historical jargon seem a little more current!  Check out their blog at PopTudors and check out their latest YouTube offering about the highlights of the first few seasons:
