Hello, and welcome to this week’s Wrist to Forehead Sunday post. We are watching true crime on television but may morph over to Christmas movies later. I suppose I could wait till later and do a Sunday Cinema post, but sometimes it is best to get these things done in a timely fashion.
I could really get into some Snapped, which used to be on all day on a Sunday. Alas, they switched to Homicide for the Holidays, but none of those cases were the kind of murder I like. I like a personal murder, for a good reason, like greed or revenge or being blackmailed. I’m not into hearing about families gunned down in their homes or serial killers. However, to each his own, as the old lady said when she kissed the cow.
Right now we are looking at Murder Made Me Famous: Angry Betty Broderick (I don’t imagine she is any relation to Matthew, but you never know). I vaguely remember hearing about Betty Broderick when thing happened back in 1989. I was less obsessed with true crime in those years. I had just started reading true crime books, but television had not started offering so many shows about it. According to this show, Court TV was a thing, but our cable system did not carry it.
So I guess this is my blog post for the day. I hope this is not the beginning of another bad blogging week. That would certainly be cause for me to swoon, dramatically posed with the back of on wrist to my forehead. If only I had a chaise lounge handy!
