Whisking into view like Alfred Hitchcock slimmed down to the breadth of a baguette, John Waters serves as the mordant, tongue-in-chief host of this shabby murder series. It's Court TV's first original scripted drama, and it's bad. Based on actual cases, the half-hour episodes are cheaply made, bluntly told stories of marriages that go wrong and end with one partner doing in the other. With more gore, the show could have been decent pulp. With more camp, it might suggest Waters's Polyester. Instead it's a clump of mold. Oh well: Star Jones Reynolds is returning to Court TV, and that's something to live for.
