FANatic – An den Grenzen der Fiktion: Directed by Jean-François Rivard. With Betsy Brandt, Benjamin Arthur, Katy Breier, Alison Louder. Tess is the female lead in a very successful Sci-Fi series. She longs to escape from the sexist and stereotypical role that has given her fame but no one around her can believe she would leave a starring role. When a photo leaks that suggests her leading man and real-life husband is cheating on her, Tess turns to her trusted assistant for support. Unfortunately, that may not have been the wisest choice.
“I love Betsy Brandt from Breaking Bad thatu0026#39;s why I watched this Lifetime thriller. But it wasnu0026#39;t very well done and wasnu0026#39;t cleverly written. The premise had potential with all the fan conventions and social media involving TV shows. Some fans are sure to be stalkers. This obsessed fan pretends to have an affair with a sci fi action hero then things get out of hand. The various stalker things felt lame and her fellow crazy fans looked silly. Betsy and the guy were not hot enough to be subjects of stalking. Wrong casting. And the fan looked too benign.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eDonu0026#39;t bother with this one – it could have been done much better. Maybe LMN will do another such themed show but make it with a cool hit show and some convincing danger.”
