TV Rundown: May 25 - 30: A Lifetime Double Feature & More!

Memorial Day Marathon: The Dollangangers: Lifetime gave viewers the treat of a double feature, first airing January’s “Flowers in the Attic” before following it up with the premiere of its sequel "Petals on the Wind" and it didn’t disappoint. The latest installment in the camp-tastic series featured car wrecks, ballerina mayhem & tons of hook-ups.

The fireworks from the guilty pleasure fully committed to its disturbing voyage into the underworld of forbidden lust. Rose McIver gave a wonderful performance as the adult Cathy and was complimented by Heather Graham’s villainous turn as Corrine. Lifetime struck while the iron was hot and lucky for them the result was a sizzling drama.
