On TV Tonight, Saturday, 1/25/14: Black Sails, Lizzie Borden Took an Ax [TV Movie] and More

TV Equals Schedules Fall 2013 Saturday

Our Picks
 

Beyraiderz – 9pm Cartoon Network
A spin-off of Beyblade, Beyraiderz is an anime series for Indiana Jones’ junkies. The characters search for ancient arenas, encounter mythical monsters– sort of like Atlantis, but animated and probably less cheesy (sorry, Atlantis, I still love you). If that’s your jam, then couch it up this morning as Cartoon Network speeds through four new episodes in a row.

Lizzie Borden Took an Ax – 8pm Lifetime
Oh, I am so looking forward to this movie. Christina Ricci steps into the role of Lizzie Borden and Lifetime gets a chance to explore one of America’s first scandals instead of dwelling on current events for a change. Definitely a must watch and probably way less disturbing than last week’s adventures with Flowers in the Attic.

Black Sails – 9pm Starz
I have seen the pilot, and oh, is it good. Yes, there’s too much gratuitous female nudity, but the actual plot is a truly fascinating exploration of pirates as their time as the terror of the seas was waning. Black Sails is also, to put it simply, gorgeous. I immediately wanted to book a ticket to Cape Town after my first viewing.
