  1. I was thrilled to receive the 4 Christmas Movies I've been wanting for quite some time. Now if only Matchmaker Santa and When Angels Come to Town ( Peter Falk )would come out in DVD. Also, I would be thrilled to see the "Good Witch" series come out in DVD. The first one did - not not any of the 4 that followed. Saw Catherine Bell on the Hallmark channel
    and there are two more coming out. YIPEE!

  3. I agree with the previous poster. I'm usually not a fan of the Lifetime movies as they are less family-friendly and less heartfelt than the original movies on the Hallmark Channel, but a couple of these sound interesting so I think I'll give a Lifetime movie another chance this holiday season. Thanks!

  4. Lifetime has put up at least one picture for each new movie (they put up more pictures for the Country Christmas movie), if you want to check them out.
