Lorena (Amazon) -- Lorena Bobbitt documentary -- EP: Jordan Peele






On a sleepy night in 1993, Lorena Bobbitt sliced off her husband’s penis after years of abuse. John and Lorena Bobbitt’s dueling narratives exploded in a ravenous 24-hour news cycle, igniting a renewed battle of the sexes. Lorena became a national joke, her suffering ignored by the male-dominated press. But as John spiraled downward, Lorena found strength in the scars of her ordeal. This four-part docuseries from Executive Producer Jordan Peele, revisits the events of this American scandal and sheds a new light on one of the most sensationalized tabloid stories of our time.

CREW INFORMATION:

I can't think of a more idiotic subject for a documentary.
Once again Amazon falls short in the content department....

One of my many legal claims to fame is that I have had (separate) matters with the prosecutor, defense attorney, and judge from this case. My penis remains firmly intact.

I don't understand what that means. What are "matters"?

She was on The View this morning. She still seems mentally unwell. They wanted to get her off the show as quickly as possible.

This could be interesting, but it would be hard work to raise it above a tabloid level. If Frontline covered the story, I would be interested. If 20/20 covered it, I wouldn't even look.

I know of one long-term effect of this story. John Bobbitt has has penis reattached. So, since then, women who cut off their husbands' penises shove the member down the garbage disposal.

Matter = case = lawsuit = claim. Just another word since I didn't want to say "case" twice in the same sentence.

If you're looking all over the house for it there's nothing "happy" about it.
