๐Ÿ’•More to Love?๐Ÿ’• The Last Weekend in February has New TV Movies, a Mystery, and Marathons - SEE HERE:

Hello Movie Friends! If you're searching for new movies airing on TV this weekend, then search no further; I'll give you the scoop!

Hallmark has an all-new mystery Friday night and a new romantic-comedy on Saturday, while UPtv also has a new rom-com of their own (pictured above) on Sunday, The Soulmate Search.

Be sure to note, as Loveuary ends this weekend, the Hallmark Channel is taking a three-week break from new movie premieres during the height of March Madness. It's always been hard for networks to compete in ratings with basketball taking center court, but Hallmark hasn't completely conceded to defeat; instead of new premieres in their primetime Saturday night time slots in March, the network will instead air popular films from Hallmark Movies & Mysteries.

And, as you are recording any of the new movies this weekend, you'll also want to be sure to set your DVR now for the Monday night TV premiere of Great American Family's new series: County Rescue. I'm already hearing such great feedback from those who have seen the first episode early. And for those of you who have Great American Pure Flix, the first episode drops on Friday, February 23rd.

See all of the details below...


Friday, February 23, 2024:

Storyline: Crime series actress Hadley Warner retires to a small town where she encounters her first real case. Using her TV crime knowledge, she teams up with Detective Caden to solve the case.

Premieres Friday, February 23, 2024

Saturday, February 24, 2024:

Sunday, February 25, 2024:

Premieres Sunday, February 25, 2024
at 7pm/6c. on UPtv


Sunday, February 25, 2024:

It's no secret that on this Sunday, February 25th, we *Mark the 25th* with 10 months until Christmas!

If any of you plan to watch a Christmas movie this weekend, please be sure to share in comments below. There are three Christmas movies airing Friday night on the Hallmark Channel and one airing on Great American Family. See details in the programming notes below.

I'm personally hoping to catch on Friday night - The Royal Nanny (Hallmark Channel) and Twas the Text Before Christmas (Great American Family).

Then, to actually *Mark the 25th* on Sunday, I'll be watching my recording of The Christmas Secret, starring Bethany Joy Lenz, John Reardon, Susan Hogan, and Michael Hogan. I've loved this movie ever since the first moment I watched it. In fact, a dear friend who previously worked at Hallmark sent me a special DVD screener for this film before it premiered back in 2014 - 10 years ago! Wow! At that time, I did not have the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries channel, but after watching this, I knew I had to have it, especially if this was the sort of programming they were creating.

Every time I watch The Christmas Secret, I'm always moved to tears. It's such an emotionally powerful, uplifting, heartwarming story!

If you'd like to join in and *Mark the 25th* with us, please share your Christmas movie pick (or picks) in comments below.

Happy weekend, everyone!

My movie pick for this weekend is the UPtv movie, The Soulmate Search. I'm hoping this movie is just as cute as the poster! Plus, even though I wasn't exactly taken by Christmas at an Amish Bakery, I still found Alexandra Harris to be a delightful actress in it, and I'm looking forward to seeing her with Jonathan Stoddard, who was ever so much fun recently in Baked with a Kiss.

As for the new Hallmark mystery, I haven't made my mind up yet on watching this one. The promos just haven't captivated me, thus far. Plus, I'm not sure I'm game for yet another NEW Hallmark mystery that will surely be canceled before it's truly finished.

And while I'm typically interested in various film adaptations of Sense & Sensibility, I am rather disappointed that the Hallmark Channel has made this one historically inaccurate (much like the recent
Gilded Newport Mystery: Murder at the Breakers). History is what history is; whether we like it or not, that is completely irrelevant. We can't change it or rewrite it, as I feel they are attempting to do here. Unfortunately, this new Sense & Sensibility movie is not an accurate depiction of South West England, London, and Sussex, between 1792 and 1797. Even though this film is fictional, Jane Austen's works are conventionally known to be set in the Regency era, and this movie intentionally does not accurately reflect that time period.

If any of you plan to watch either one of these new Hallmark movies, I am curious to know your thoughts on them.

As for the movie classics airing this weekend, I'm always thrilled to see a Signed, Sealed, Delivered marathon in the schedule! In fact, the SSD line-up airing this Saturday on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries includes several of my personal favorite films from the series. Oh, who am I kidding? I love them all! By the way, you'll also find the exact SSD movie marathon that is airing this Saturday - repeated on Hallmark Family (formerly Hallmark Drama, by that time) on Easter Sunday!

Please note: I haven't pre-screened the movies listed above. If you'd like to post a review on whether a film is family-friendly, please share in the comments.

Blessings on your weekend,


"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; 
knock and the door will be opened to you. 
For everyone who asks receives; 
the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, 
the door will be opened."
~Matthew 7:7-8

Erin Krakow and Robert Buckley Star in "Blind Date Book Club" This April -- SEE HERE:

The Hallmark Channel will *Spring into Love* this April with Erin Krakow (When Calls the Heart) and Robert Buckley (Chesapeake Shores) in the all-new romantic comedy premiere, "Blind Date Book Club."

Storyline via Hallmark: A bookstore owner finds love and direction in life after agreeing to review a famous author’s new novel in her blind-date-with-a-book club.

I'm truly amazed at the turnaround for this movie, especially for the editing department, who must seamlessly piece together video footage, dialogue, background music, etc. The movie, "Blind Date Book Club," was just filmed from January 15th to February 2nd!

"Blind Date Book Club" will premiere on Saturday, April 6, 2024 at 8pm/7c., the eve before the premiere of the 11th Season of When Calls the Heart.

*Note: There are also more "Young Aurora Teagarden Mysteries" soon to be filmed in March, so it appears they are keeping those mysteries going. For me, they will never compare to the originals, starring Candace Cameron Bure. What are your thoughts on this and "Blind Date Book Club"? Please share in comments below.

Stay tuned for more programming coming in April!

Spring is right around the corner!
Have a Blessed Day!

๐ŸŒŸ Stream Great American Family Movies for Free and More ๐ŸŽฌ SEE HERE:

Great news! Great American Family continues to add FULL movies to their YouTube page that can be streamed for free - with stars like Lori Loughlin, Trevor Donovan, Jessica Lowndes, Daniel Lissing, Merritt Patterson, Maggie Lawson, Christopher Russell, Chad Michael Murray, and more!

Be sure to tell any of your friends or family who don't have GFAM, as this will give them a wonderful taste of what they are missing weekdays from 4pm - 10pm on this wonderful channel.

With February 25th coming up this weekend - making it 10 MONTHS 'til Christmas!!! - I thought this would be an excellent time to share the Great American Family Christmas movie selections currently available to stream, as well.

Plus, you'll find below four extra family-friendly Christmas movies that are available to stream easily and free through Freevee at Amazon. See the links below!

Great American Family:

A Harvest Homecoming | Starring Jessica Lowndes & Trevor Donovan

Fall Into Winter | Starring Lori Loughlin & James Tupper

Crown Prince of Christmas | Starring Cindy Busby & Jilon VanOver

Catering Christmas | Starring Merritt Patterson & Daniel Lissing

A Lot Like Christmas | Starring Maggie Lawson & Christopher Russell

Christmas On Windmill Way | Starring Chad Michael Murray & Christa Taylor Brown

Christmas Time is Here | Starring Rukiya Bernard & Dewshane Williams

A Brush with Christmas | Starring Jillian Murray & Joseph Cannata

12 Games of Christmas | Starring Felisha Cooper & Johnny Ramey


Plus, here are four family-friendly Christmas movies you can stream FREE from Reel One Entertainment via FreeVee (with ads) through Amazon...

Christmas by Candlelight | Starring Erin Agostino and Harmon Walsh

The Fabric of Christmas | Starring Ferelith Young and Harmon Walsh

Christmas Casanova | Starring Kalinka Petrie and Fuad Ahmed

Coupled up for Christmas | Sara Canning and Marcus Rosner


I hope you'll enjoy some of the movies featured here.

My personal picks from the Great American Family 9 movies available above are: A Lot Like Christmas, Fall into Winter, and Catering Christmas! In my opinion, those three movies are not to be missed in the GFAM film library, as all three are entertaining, wholesome, captivating, and most especially, heartwarming!

As for the Reel One Entertainment selections, I have seen all of these Christmas movies, as well, and my personal pick would have to be The Fabric of Christmas, as it is one with excellent chemistry between the leads - from friendship to love, and there is a more unique element to the story that truly touches the heart. However, if you are more in the mood for comedy, then I would suggest Coupled Up for Christmas. Mind you, there is the whole fake boyfriend/girlfriend trope, but it's still a cute movie, and Sara Canning and Marcus Rosner are such fun together!

Please note: I don't know how long these movies will be available to watch, so if something catches your eye, you may want to watch it soon, just in case they happen to disappear. Also, please know that random ads may appear during these streaming movies.

If you have any thoughts you'd like to share on any of these movies, please share in comments below.

Happy watching!
