And This Is Why There Are No Good TV Movies Any More

by Angel Cohn June 18, 2008 11:43 am

I was curious about this soapy internet "series" called Foreign Body, which is doled out in 40 two to three minute installments. It is essentially a medical thriller about a seedy company trying to keep people from traveling abroad for cheap surgeries by hiring "undercover" innocent nurses to prove that it is unsanitary and deadly. It's from the mind of beach read writer Robin Cook, loosely based on his forthcoming novel, and stars no one you've ever heard of, but it isn't until like installment eight or so that you really have any sense of what is going on since the "episodes" are so short. Oh, and there is one character who is always taking her clothes off and rubbing her stomach suggestively. So odd. I can't help but wonder if they made Mother, May I Sleep With Danger today, if it would have been parsed out in drips and drabs on the internet keeping people coming back every week to see how Tori Spelling would stupidly fall for Ivan Sergei even though he was a totally bastard, instead of just airing it as one two hour Lifetime movie. I totally digress ... here's the first installment which is pretty, but forgettable. All I know is I just got to an episode where they create a computer program called trojan.ho, and now I can't stop myself from watching because it is so ridiculous.
