If we're misreading the show's intentions and we should be treating it as a drama, we should point out that it isn't mysterious and spooky either.
A quiet aftermath for Lizzie Borden wouldn't make for much of a TV series, though. An actively violent one doesn't really cut it either -- but Lifetime will take its chances.
The series is no less absurd, but it's far more fun than the movie: We all know about the ax murders. It's more fascinating to watch Lizzie continue to weave her web of evil after her trial.
Lizzie's Chronicles is guilty of straining for the cheapest of shock value, with luridly stylized camera and editing tricks, including slo-mo and frequent shock cuts of flashing gore that aren't as much chilling as flagrantly vulgar.
Lizzie Borden Chronicles is basically a cheesey soap with tinges of dark comedy. It's junk but kind of fun junk, if pulpy, bloody melodrama set to anachronistic rock soundtrack is your idea of fun.
