As they grow closer, Ariana reveals to Early that she is secretly planning on opening a restaurant. When Early makes the team he receives a congratulatory kiss from a flirtatious agent, Taylor.

  1. The movie on Pixl sounds good but unfortunately I do not get it. :( But I did request it from my cable company. :) Thanks for telling us about it.

  2. Wish we could get PIXL on DirecTV. That sounds like a station I would watch all the time. I am clicking that link you shared and requesting it now. Thanks for bringing this station to my attention.

    1. I hope DirecTV adds PIXL soon and hopefully not just amoung the Choice Extra package. It would be great paired up with UP and Hallmark

  3. Love the KITTEN BOWL! You must know, it's a Purrr-fect way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

  4. This is the sneak peek for Casa Vita. Looks like a good one

  5. With Dish Network PIXL is a channel like STARZ; it shows movies for free for a few days, and then it's not available for a long time. When it is free, I've found that some of the movies I've recorded show up on Hallmark months later under different names, so it's kind of fun to get a sneak peak before they show on Hallmark. In order to have PIXL all the time, it requires a package deal for $5 or $6 per month, but personally I don't think it's worth paying for it because they eventually show the movies on Hallmark as new premieres (I'm not sure about all of the movies on PIXL, I just know this is the case with the few I've recorded).

  6. Net, you and your US visitors can watch Pixl movies on Youtube for a subscription ($1.99 / month OR $14.99 / year). Unfortunately, that's only for US residents, it looks like.

    Also, there are lots of family friendly movies on there, including some from Hallmark, and of course, their own original content as well. I haven't tried it yet, but I am sorely tempted.

  7. I have PIXL and it is very reminiscent of Hallmark. Clean family oriented films. Worth checking on getting.

  8. Ha-hahahahaha....good one, Net!! "Poor Marcus", my sediments exactly!! Do you ever think that he's going to get "the girl"?? I'll be tuned in to find out...kitten bowl is on my agenda for Sunday, too!!

  9. You can subscribe to the PixL Movie Channel on YouTube and watch it on your Smart TV or favorite streaming device ( Roku, Apple Tv, Chromecast, Amazon Fire Stick, etc etc). You can try it for 15 days for FREE and have unlimited on-demand access to PixL’s expansive library. The 95% of the movies are co-produced with Hallmark and are available to watch months before they premiere on the Hallmark Channel.

  10. Technically they aren't Hallmark movies. They are movies from Larry Levinson Productions and the channel is partially owned by Larry Levinson so they show up on Pixl first before Hallmark gets distribution rights. Right now those who have Dish can enjoy a free preview of Pixl network.

  11. I watched Casa Vita and it was a great movie. Family friendly but different than the usual rom com fare I watch on Hallmark. It featured a Mexican family who owns a restaurant so traditional cuisine was prominent throughout. And the leads were younger 20s and we really got to see them coming into their own outside of their parents.Plus the music was great to. Really made you want to move!

  12. Okay I've watch 3 movies on PixL and so far they've all been more diverse than the Hallmark ones lately.They actually incorporated minorities in ways that didnt feel like just tokens.
