Editorial Reviews

A series to die for.

True life tales of wedded woe.

Get out the confetti, the wedding cake, and the hearse. John Waters (Hairspray, Serial Mom, Pink Flamingos) stars as the Groom Reaper in Love You To Death, the 13-episode, half-hour, anthology series featuring stories inspired by true crimes involving married couples whose once wedded bliss ends in murder.
As presenter and narrator, The Groom Reaper, he brings his macabre sensibility and wry comedy to a series of dramatised stories which reveal the real life cases of ill-fated relationships, what they did, why they did it, and how they covered it up. Recalling great anthology series like Alfred Hitchcock Presents and The Twilight Zone, each episode of this dark, edgy, and unique series has a happy ending, John Waters style, with the guilty spouse getting caught in a way he/she never expected.

"Such good sickly fun." - The New York Times

4.0 out of 5 stars MORBID MARRIAGE July 9, 2008
Some people have a twisted sense of humor. Fortunately for me I am one of those people. Thus when certain movies or series come across my screen I find something amusing in them all. Such is the case with the release this week of the first season of `TIL DEATH DO US PART from BCI.

The series takes real cases of marriages gone bad...REAL bad...like as in death bad...and turns them into short morality plays. Each episode runs in the half hour mark and puts forth a tale of murderous matrimony. Yes the stories all end with one spouse or the other clearly deceased.

As with most anthology shows, this one has a host all its own. Director John Waters (the original HAIRSPRAY, CRY BABY) stars as the Groom Reaper. Each episode begins with a brief look at the happy couple as they are married only to have the Reaper in the background filling us viewers in that wedded bliss is not to be in the near future. Someone is headed for the grave.

This first season of the show features 13 episodes of marital mayhem ranging from older man meets younger woman to a donut king who finds marriage can't fill the holes of his life. Yes these stories may seem over the top but the series claim that they are all based on true events with only the most minor of alterations.

One thing that makes this series work is that none of the actors are name above the title celebrities whose big screen image baggage would hinder what unfolds in each half hour. Instead we have a collection of actors you don't recognize but who give above par performances compared to some of the lowest B movies released to drive ins across the land.

Waters stands out as the Groom Reaper, adding just a touch of the macabre in his style and a ton of wit in his delivery.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Of CourtTV's Best Original Shows June 13, 2008
This was one of the best original shows on CourtTV (now TruTV). I am not sure if it is coming back for a second season, but in the meantime, I recommend everyone pick this up.

You won't regret it, John Waters fans especially.

5.0 out of 5 stars True, Campy Fun October 9, 2010
Verified Purchase
I watched Til Death Do Us Part: The complete first season on Court TV., before the transformation to Tru TV. The stories of love and marriage gone wrong are bizarre, funny in a macabre way and take on a different light when you realize they are all based on actual events. My only complaint was there was never a second season. John Waters as the Grim Reaper figure was marvelous casting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quirky, Fun, Macabre August 30, 2014
By Zeno

If you like John Waters then you will enjoy this 1 season of marriage murders (every episode is of course about one spouse killing the other). 13 episodes of marriage murder, complete with John Waters intro and commentary. Of course, every episode has a bit of a macabre twist, and we love the John Waters appearances (like Alfred Hitchcock). The stories are supposedly based on true life stories, with some poetic license to keep the story fascinating. Each episode is about 22 minutes long (no commercials), and was an enjoyable watch. Recommended for Valentine's day or Halloween or for an anniversary gift!

5.0 out of 5 stars marital counseling the Waters" way! January 11, 2014

John Waters is god! Or, at least he has god's wicked sense of humor. He is a very funny man and I wish him all the bleakness in the world. Just kidding about that bleakness part.
