Mommy’s Little Boy – Review
Mommy’s Little Boy – Lifetime – 2 hours and 0 minutes
Eric’s life isn’t easy. His bullying, older, half brother, Max, drowned in a pool and his mother, Brianna, is a neglectful, alcoholic. When their neighbor, Barbara, attempts to offer a helping hand, she is met with a rude comment and a frying pan to the head. Brianna goes into planning mode to cover up the crime. She gets the neighbors car, then plans to put Barbara in it and dump it. But when she comes back to the house, Eric tells her that Barbara isn’t dead. Of course, Brianna takes care of that. As Brianna waits for the body to be discovered, she make sure her son knows that if she goes down, he goes down too. For Eric, keeping this secret is too much and those around him can see something is wrong. His coach and principal call CPS. CPS puts Brianna on alert and she makes plans to leave with her new man Shane to Mexico. For Eric, leaving is death and he will do anything to stay with his home, his bike, and … his coach.
Ok Lifetimers, get ready. You get 2 deaths before the first commercial break. It’s hard to tell who the craziest person in this family. They are all feeding off of each other. You will want to scream at the TV for CPS to save this kid as he is neglected, made an accessory to the crime, and kills … yes … kills is plural. The last 30 minutes are extra tense with a RV chase to boot. This is one to watch but don’t be surprised if you spit out your wine a few times. This one is good.
I give it 4 out of 5 stars

Forgotten Evil – Review
Forgotten Evil – LMN – 2 hours and 0 minutes
Waking up in a hospital room is the highlight of a young woman’s day. She wakes up with no memory of who she is, her past, family, or friends. Then, she is told by her nurse, Mariah, that she attacked, almost drown, and went into a coma for 6 months. With so much confusion, this woman (being called Jane Doe) gets the news that physically she is getting better but the hospital can’t do anything for her memories. So they must discharge her. She goes into a panic because she has no where to go. She is informed that Mariah will give her a place to stay and a job while she works with Dr. Michaels on her memory. With some relief Jane check out of hospital, but not before she takes the advice of a handsome guy, Randy. He tells her to pick her own name. She picks Renee. As Renee keeps working with Dr. Michaels she has flashes of her past, but she is always looking over her shoulder for person who attacked her. Mariah and Randy try to put her at ease, but when Dr. Michaels is murdered, Renee and Mariah are on high alert. And a knock at the door will change everything for both women.
This one is good. They give you enough time to care about Renee and Mariah while getting you involved in the mystery. You feel so bad for Renee trying to remember her past, when most of her memories are horrific. But, remembering who she is isn’t enough, because that’s the first step of remembering what happened to her. Now once the killer is revealed, it’s a race for these women to save themselves with Randy and the Sheriff at their sides. And when push comes to shove, Renee and Mariah don’t cower in the corner, they fight back hard and intelligently. At the end, Renee makes a resounding declaration for all, especially herself, to her.
I give it 5 out of 5 stars
