In Response to Re: Jodi Arias TV movie airs Saturday on Lifetime:
So did you watch this?
I did and found it to be an okay portrayal of the story that we have heard so many times.. it was followed by her interview and scenes from the trial and the taped police interrogations etc.

I watched about 5 minutes, then went back to the Season 11 "America's Next Top Model" marathon on Style Network :) The part I saw showed Jodi texting/e-mailing with a guy I assume was Travis Alexander. It sounded like one or both of them thrived on it being a dysfunctional relationship; where he said he wasn't interested in her & said nasty things about her, and she would counter by saying that the fact that he responded meant he was more interested than he wanted to admit. That was enough for me!

I saw an interview with the producer a couple of nights ago and got the impression that it might be a fairly lame offering with a lot of "artistic license" taken. I hung in there in order to give it a fair appraisal but the only thing I have to say is..."Ain't nothin' like the real thing, Baby!" with apologies to Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell!
The murder scene was fairly realistic, I thought, given the fact that no one except the "real" Jodi Arias knows what happened that evening.
I tried to watch the show following and I was truly interested in what Esteban Flores had to say. He has been the silent man with all of the known facts and theories in this case, save when he was on the witness stand and got to speak to all of the evidence and Jodi's strange behavior and lying during her interrogations. I believe Detective Flores was the person who acquitted himself best in Jodi's whole farce and there was little anyone could call him out on. Someone give that man a promotion and a raise!
I thought Travis' sister Samantha was an articulate, attractive and engaging girl, judging on the snippets of interviews on the after-show. The look of pain she exhibited most of the time during the trial and when she gave her victim impact statement was truly heartbreaking when you imagine the two images side-by-side. I thought Dr. Drew was a little over-the-top when, during deliberations, he started calling her "my Samantha" and admitted that he had huge stores of empathy for her, saying he could feel her pain. He was also the first to say that Travis' brother Steven had PTSD...something I saw right away from having the problem myself. I decided he could express his empathy for the family any way he wanted since he actually seemed sincere and didn't appear to be seeking to sensationalize it for the sake of ratings.
Alas, there was too much of the JA interview...boring!...and I fell asleep before it was over.
