  5. While reading about the Hallmark Channel Winter TCA party, I saw that Kristina Wagner (Jack Wagner's ex) will be on the show too! I still remember watching them on General Hospital (Felicia & Frisco). Time sure flies by!

  6. I, too, am looking forward to season 2 of When Calls the Heart; I love this series. Thanks for the coming previews, Net, looks like there's going to be a "shake up" in Coal Valley this spring. Brrrrrrrr.....let's survive our own arctic winter first!

  7. I like many of the movies based on Janette Oke's novels. I enjoyed watching those movies and TV shows of early settlers and pioneers. Their simple life, simple faith, straightforward moral standards and relationships are inspiring and refreshing. When Calls the Heart is one of those which we don't see much in today's movie theater. Thank you for sharing season 2 episodes with fans! I am looking forward to another season of When Calls the Heart!!!

  9. Thank you again for the information on When Calls The heart. Do you know if this book is available? We may have to stop the Hallmark Channel because of our new cable company. Thank you so much and have a blessed Easter.

  10. I love the show, but that was a pitiful kiss that Elizabeth gave Jack at the end of last season, lets hope she got some practice to at least make it look like she has some "feelings" in it! It was a bit of a let down when finally the kiss was happening.

  15. The modern hairstyles and faces loaded with make-up sort of ruin the whole atmosphere for me.

  16. So wonderful to hear that most everyone has enjoyed the stories on When Calls the Heart this season! I do know what you mean about the hairstyles, Kshirkey, as they bug me, too,at times. Overall, it is a fantastic series, but I do prefer historical accuracy.

    1. I too expect more accuracy with details from a Hallmark production. The hair stylist should be a shamed. This is early 1900. Do your homework. Same for the costume designers, that was one of the appeals of this program, the period, the history, the costumes. Get it right, do it well or don't do it at all. Season 2 was not worth a second look. All that made it special are gone. Very Disappointed

    2. I love this series.I agree with the lack of attention to historical accuracy. At times, I hear words, I suspect, are ahead of the period they're in like skinny dipping and slow motion.

    3. I'm a male watching season 2 with my wife. One of the first things I noticed was the outfits don't match the era. Not only that they are just sloppy in general, nothing looks 'worñ' everything looks brand new. It just seems so cheap to do a show of a certain era and not even try to get the details right.

  17. I want a season three.

  18. One weekend without when calls the heart. Not a good weekend.
