It appears Lifetime has a new film franchise on its hands.
Four months after the premiere of the ludicrous “The Husband She Met Online,” the network returned to remind audiences of the dangers of internet dating with the premiere of the equally-bananas “The Girl He Met Online” on Saturday (Feb. 8).
This time around, the tables are turned when the innocent Andy (Shawn Roberts) meets Gillian (Yvonne Zima) online. With her bipolar moods known to scare off her beaus, triggering an unparalleled rage once they dump her, she tries to be on better behavior with Andy. Unfortunately, her boss and mom amp up events that lead to the death of Andy’s sister, putting Andy in danger himself. And the rest is history.
