Hallmark TV ALERT: Major Dilemma for ALL #Hearties and #POstables

According to Wikipedia, the definition of dilemma is: "a problem offering two possibilities, neither of which is unambiguously acceptable or preferable". Oh, that is so true!

#Hearties - fans of the Frontier TV Drama Series "When Calls the Heart"!

#POstables - fans of the ongoing Inspirational Mystery Movie Series "Signed, Sealed, Delivered"!

Images via: Hallmark Crown Media

How would the DLO team solve this? Is it possible a Mountie could help?

Here are my 2 cents...

The main dilemma for all of us devoted #Hearties and #POstables... is that on February 21st, 2016 the Hallmark Channel is airing the continuation of Season 3 of "When Calls the Heart" with Episode 2: Troubled Hearts at 9pm/8c. and at the EXACT SAME TIME, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries is premiering the next movie in the SSD series: "Signed, Sealed, Delivered: From the Heart".

How would Oliver solve this one???
Ugh!!! This is such a quandary! How can they make us choose between them? Unless you have a DVR that can record both at once, "the Struggle is Real"!
Elizabeth is writing here...
perhaps in her journal, a letter home,
or maybe a love letter to Jack?

Loyal, faithful viewers will have to choose between the premiere of "When Calls the Heart" Season 3 and "Signed, Sealed, Delivered: From the Heart" on February 21st, when both shows have repeatedly won our hearts over, time and time, again. No matter what we choose, there can be no clear winner... as our thoughts will surely also be with the other program we are missing, at the time.

(Sigh....) Oh, well... Tisk. Tisk. Honestly, I know this is not a huge dilemma, (just having a little fun with it!) and trust me, I am grateful to have both stations and the opportunity to decide between them, but Hallmark must know that many devoted #Hearties love  "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" and many loyal #POstables love "When Calls the Heart", myself being one of them!

I am curious... for those of you who are fans of these two shows and have both stations, the Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, and if you cannot watch one & record the other, or record both, then, which one will you watch on the night of February 21, 2016?

Whatever you choose... Please don't be broken-hearted! There are more chances to see both of these programs... "When Calls the Heart" and "Signed, Sealed, Delivered: From the Heart"!
Here are the air times for both programs, according to Hallmark's current listings...

on the Hallmark Channel
Premieres: February 21st, 2016 at 9pm/8c.
Repeats: Friday February 26, 2016 at 2pm/1c.
