TUBI EXCLUSIVE: Love You to Death: The Jodi Arias Story (2023)

One of the things I had to learn when I got married was who was who in the true crime stories of not just the headlines, but going back for decades. My wife and her father used to watch these stories unfold in real time and had the same kind of language about them that I do about my obsessions like Jess Franco movies, Steve Ditko self-published Ayn Rand-inspired superheroes and mid-90s Japanese independent pro wrestling.

Tubi gets their audience and while they have an Italian horror and giallo category for me, they also are producing true crime docs for my wife. Like Love You to Death: The Jodi Arias Story, which gets into the real story — as written by Savannah Lucas, who has worked on Snapped and Tubi’s Suburban Nightmare: Jon Benét Ramsey — of Jodi, her relationship with Travis Victor Alexander and how he ended up with a bullet in the head and 27 knife wounds.

This was one of the first social media trials and this gets into everything, including how Jodi was selling artwork on eBay, which is pretty wild. Who wants that?

Today, Arias is jailed at the Arizona State Prison Complex – Perryville in the medium security section. That hasn’t stopped Lifetime from making Bad Behind Bars: Jodi Arias. This documentary does have several of the real officers involved in the case, as well as several bloggers and media people, all to give the full picture and generally, that picture is that Jodi was wrong and that every step of the way, they knew she was wrong and that she’s still wrong.

If you know true crime at the heights that my wife does, there’s nothing new here for you. But for husbands who need to do some homework, well, this is pretty quick and you’ll have something to talk to your wife about.

You can watch this on Tubi.
