Mysteries abound in the Family Drama "Granite Flats"


There’s a fascinating family drama that airs Sunday Nights on BYU called Granite Flats.


The story is based in the 1960s, during the cold war, and focuses on the small town of Granite Flats, and the people who live in it. I think of it as “American Dreams” meets "Nancy Drew". If you love the history, music, clothes, and cars of the 60’s, mixed in with mystery, then you will love this series.

Chief Sanders and Agent Scott investigate citizens whose loyalties are questionable.

“In the small, quintessentially American town of Granite Flats, Colorado, the Cold War rumbles underneath the lives of a group of school children, the Chief of Police, and the staff at the local Army base and VA hospital. Three unlikely young heroes, the school science geeks, have banded together to form their own private detective agency, but the implications of what they’re investigating is actually bigger and more serious than anyone realizes. The tale of Granite Flats unfolds through the perspectives of an ensemble of diverse and multi-generational characters. The kid detectives end up in the middle of it all, gaining insight into the complicated political world that becomes the backdrop to their own coming of age experiences.” (via GraniteFlats.com Press release)

Arthur, Timmy, and Madeline solve the mysteries of Granite Flats.

Granite Flats is currently airing its 2nd season on BYU. If you would like to catch up or simply check out season 1, then you can watch the episodes online, here.

New episodes air on Sunday nights, on BYU, at 9PM/8c. Repeats at midnight and then again, on Tuesday night.

Season 2 of Granite Flats includes well known Guest Actors:
Christopher Lloyd, Cary Elwes, Ivan Sergei, and Finola Hughes


Here’s a description of Season 2, via BYU: “It's one year later in Granite Flats and the mysteries are only getting more cryptic. The three young detectives stumble upon dangerous evidence as Chief Sanders and the FBI look into the missing satellite. Old friends become enemies. Unlikely alliances are born. Everyone is keeping a secret – or at least knows more than they're admitting.”




Each character in Granite Flats has an interesting story to tell.
 
The cast of Granite Flats will be doing an interview on Home and Family, on the Hallmark Channel, Tuesday, April 29th at 10AM/9c. (repeats April 30th at 12PM/11c.)
 
I hope many of you will enjoy this family drama.

"One Starry Christmas", a Hallmark Channel Christmas Movie

MOVIE REVIEW


One Starry Christmas

Previously Known As: A Cowboy for Christmas

Network: Hallmark Channel

Original Air Date: November 1, 2014



 





CAST:

Sarah Carter ... Holly Jensen
Damon Runyan ... Luke Shelton
George Canyon ... Bull
Paul Popowich ... Adam
Kathleen Laskey ... Betsy
Neil Crone ... Ken
Daniel Karasik ... Mark









PLOT:

via Chesler/Perlmutter Productions:

Holly Jensen (Sarah Carter) finishes teaching her last astronomy class of the year and heads home to begin prepping for Christmas with her boyfriend Adam. She finds her home decorated to the nines with Christmas lights, ornaments and more holly than you can shake a telescope at. However, this is to soften the blow of Adam leaving to entertain clients instead of spending Christmas with Holly. She follows him to New York City on a bus, falling asleep on the shoulder of Luke Shelton (Damon Runyan), a traveling rodeo cowboy. Waking up when the bus breaks down, she apologizes to Luke for the breach in professionalism. He is picked up and brings Holly along with him to NYC.

Upon arriving in New York, Holly is now faced with a difficult decision amidst the swirling snow, as her boyfriend, Luke, and Luke's brother, Bull (George Canyon), stay with her and her parents. Holly has to decide, if she wants to stay with the boyfriend who ditched her on Christmas, or to succumb to the temptation of a cowboy.


via Hallmark:

An aspiring astronomy professor finds unexpected Christmas romance when she meets a charming cowboy during her holiday travel. As she decides between this new cowboy and her practical boyfriend, she must decide whether it's better to play it safe in love, or let an adventurous cowboy steal her heart.

Movie Review:

One Starry Christmas lit the way this season as the Hallmark Channel’s first original Christmas movie.

When Holly, a single young woman and astronomer, travels by bus from Chicago to New York, to be with her boyfriend, Adam, and her parents for Christmas, she has no idea her life just may be leading down a new path!

Adam had previously decided that it wasn’t the right time, yet, to get married and work would be way more important than being with Holly, on Christmas Day, which is, according to Adam, just another day on the calendar. Holly, however, doesn’t feel the same. So, since she doesn’t want to fly, riding a bus for several hours is worth it to her to “be with the ones you love” at Christmas.

Along the way, Holly awakens in her bus seat to find Luke, a Cowboy sitting next to her. They strike up conversation easily and everything seems to be working according to her plan, until… unfortunately, or perhaps, for this cowboy and astronomer, it was written in the stars, providence from God… that the bus would brake down.

With the bus not moving again, anytime soon, Luke rescues the day. He finds them a ride, a pick-up truck, and drives the rest of the way. Holly and Luke are welcomed warmly in her parents’ home and her father is most thrilled to meet a “real cowboy”. They even end up inviting Luke’s Cowboy brother Bull to join them, too. At dinner, Bull plays guitar and sings a lovely song, as Luke plays his harmonica.

All are pleasant and friendly, except Adam, who doesn't like Luke or Bull's presence. Adam invites Holly’s parents to join them at his work party, but when a minor accident prevents Holly’s father from going, Luke is invited to attend in his place.

At the dance, a Cowboy is a real head-turner for everyone. The ladies are all charmed and roped in by his invitation to teach them how to line dance, in Luke’s effort to help Adam’s tech-geek and socially awkward boss step out of his comfort zone and unto the dance floor! Holly joins in the dance, too, and they all have the best time.

When a very jealous Adam proposes in front of everyone, will he win over Holly’s heart, or has Luke, the Cowboy, already lassoed her in with a simple wish on a star?

See! I think you will enjoy this wonderful ride through New York at Christmastime!
