Friday, April 28, 2017

For the very last weekend of April - I haven't said this for a long time...

No New Movies on TV this weekend.

There will NOT be any New Original TV Movies this weekend on the Hallmark Channel, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, UP, etc...

We have been so blessed for many, many weekends to have a new movie on either Saturday or Sunday night... through Winterfest, Countdown to Valentine's Day, Spring Fling, etc... plus several Mystery Movies, too!!!

What's next? Well, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries will have a Marathon of "Garage Sale Mystery" Movies on Saturday, the Hallmark Channel will have various original movies throughout the day on Sunday, including: "Perfect Match," The Perfect Catch," "Love Blossoms," etc... and the Hallmark Channel does have a new Sunday night series, since "When Calls the Heart" finished last weekend, but that is not something I have chosen to promote.

Heartland Episode 3 - New Kid in Town

UP will also have a new episode of their weekly Television series "Heartland," Sunday night, at 8pm/7c., following a repeat showing of Season 10 Episode 2.

Heartland Episode 2 - You Just Know

04/30/17 - 07:00pm
Ty performs life-saving surgery on a mare, while Amy and the family work around-the-clock to bottle feed the mare's twin foals.

Heartland Episode 3 - New Kid in Town

04/30/17 - 08:00pm
Tim is caught in the middle of Jade's showdown with a new hotshot bronc rider.

So... without any new movies this weekend, perhaps, this is a good time to relax, watch some movies you haven't seen, yet, on the DVR, take a walk, and maybe, get out and enjoy (hopefully!) some good weather!  

Blessings to you all - whatever you do...
on this last Spring Weekend in April!!!

HALLMARK CHANNEL Proposes to Fans Delight... "WHEN CALLS THE HEART" will RETURN for SEASON FIVE! #Hearties

Applause All Around - from the Hearties!!!

First - for a beautiful end to Season 4, which was filled with all sorts of adventures, heartwarming stories, and best of all, so much love!!!

Each episode of "When Calls the Heart" this Season - tugged at our heartstrings a little deeper, as we were enriched by the arrival of Carson Shepherd, Shane Cantrell, and Constable Doug Burke, frustrated by the corruption of Ray Wyatt and his handling of the railroad, elated by Jack's marriage proposal to Elizabeth, charmed by all of Rosemary and Lee's first year of marriage silly and sweet antics, captivated by Abigail and Cody and all of their precious moments, as well as the adorable Opal - who more than once warmed our hearts, along with the other school children. And then, we were filled with discontent - as we watched Jack leave Hope Valley with such courage, and ride away from Elizabeth.

However, hope springs eternal as we are delighted to know Season 5 is on the way -- which was officially announced by Erin Krakow on Hallmark Channel's morning show Home & Family, Monday April 24, 2017!

We are so blessed - there is no need to say goodbye to this amazing series. We will only have to remain patient and wait for the return of Season 5 - and hopefully with it.... the return of Constable Jack Thornton - and all of the other characters we have come to love and hold dear on "When Calls The Heart!"

Until then...

Blessings to all of you, Hearties!!!

More via Hallmark... Dr. Harper Higgins is determined to land a tenured position at Boston College and is counting on curating a major university art exhibit to do so. But when her showcase artist cancels, a desperate Higgins turns to her new dog walker, Tom Stone, who, unbeknownst to anyone is an astonishingly talented painter.

Freeform Announces Holiday Movies

Freeform (formerly known as ABC Family) sent out this press release (below) regarding their slate of programming for this upcoming and future Holiday Seasons. One of the new movies mentioned below, more than raised my eyebrow, once or twice, so I wanted to share it with you all and caution you, before viewing...

Freeform Press Release:


HOLIDAY SPECIAL - "DECORATING DISNEY" - Premiering December 2017

"Decorating Disney" will reveal how holiday magic is created at Disney Parks by giving viewers an inside look into how the holidays come to life at the happiest and most magical place on earth. Freeform is giving audiences an exclusive global tour as Disney transforms all 12 Disney theme parks, four cruise ships and resorts into a winter wonderland - literally overnight. Viewers will meet the dedicated team of Disney cast members and Santa's real-life elves who, with a spoon full of sugar and a little pixie dust, will plan, design, and build life-size gingerbread houses and gorgeous Christmas trees so tall, it takes a crane to install them.


From director/producer Will Gluck of "Easy A" and "Annie" comes "Angry Angel" (working title), the story of a young woman who tries to get back to heaven after she seriously messes up. During this quest, she bumps into the love of her life and suddenly heaven doesn't seem so great after all. Think "It's a Wonderful Life" for the Snapchat generation. Produced by Olive Bridge Entertainment in association with Sony Pictures Television, Will Gluck and Richard Schwartz will serve as executive producers. "Angry Angel" (working title) is an all-new scripted two-hour movie, premiering in December 2017.


Tyra Banks will reprise her iconic role as a doll that comes to life in the sequel to the beloved Disney movie "Life-Size"; but in the sequel, everyone's favorite doll Eve has grown up. This time, she's magically awoken to help a young woman learn to live and love again, and along the way, Eve herself will experience the ups and downs of real life in a fun, edgy, modern Christmas movie. Tyra Banks will also serve as executive producer.

My Take:

As I read and re-read the description above for "Angry Angel," it sounds like to me, Hollywood is attempting, once again, to skew our religious beliefs. One does not "mess up" and leave heaven. We are saved by God's grace.

This would not be the first time that Freeform/ABC Family's so called Holiday programming was less than family-friendly or respectful of religious beliefs, or the Christmas holiday. ("Christmas Cupid" is a prime example)

I personally found the title of the movie, "Angry Angel," to be extremely offensive. To portray an Angel as Angry over frivolous matters - is quite demeaning. Since this is the working title, it may change before it airs on TV, this Christmas, but I still want to caution you all - I have a strong feeling that this movie may not be in the same sweet-nature as Clarence, in "It's a Wonderful Life."

Please share your thoughts in comments below...

"Love At The Shore" - Hallmark Announces First Movie For "Summer Nights!"

Hallmark Press Release:





Co-Stars Hallmark Channel’s “Happy the Dog”

STUDIO CITY, CA – April 19, 2017 – Principal photography began in Georgia this week on “Love at the Shore,” a Hallmark Channel Original Movie premiering Saturday, July 29 (9 p.m. ET/PT). “Love At the Shore” stars Amanda Righetti (“Colony,” “The Mentalist”) and Peter Porte (“Baby Daddy,” “The Young and the Restless”). The film also co-stars “Happy the Dog,” Hallmark Channel’s two-year-old adopted Jack Russell Terrier mix. Happy the Dog is one of two rescued pets belonging to Crown Media Family Networks, and the animals are the heart of the company’s mission to showcase the joys shelter pets bring to our lives and to ending pet homelessness.

Happy the Dog- image: Hallmark Crown Media

“Love at the Shore” tells the story of author Jenna Thompson (Righetti), a mother of two young children whose summer vacation plans take a turn when the family arrives at their summer rental and meets the neighbor of the adjoining duplex: stubborn, unconventional, and attractive surfer Lucas McKinnon (Porte). Jenna is neat and methodical, while Lucas rolls with and revels in life as it comes. As Lucas and Jenna spend more of the summer together, he finds a softer side of himself while dealing with Jenna and her children and Jenna realizes she may have been too quick to judge a book by its cover.

“Seasonal programming events are a winning formula at Hallmark Channel,” said Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Programming and Publicity.

“‘Love At the Shore’ is a terrific addition to our ‘Summer Nights’ programming event, six all new, original movies dedicated to fun, sand, and romance,” Vicary concluded.

“Love at the Shore” is a Crown Media Productions film. Stan Spry is the executive producer. Steven Monroe directs from the screenplay by Laura Grant and Nicole Baxter.


Hallmark Channel is Crown Media Family Networks’ flagship 24-hour cable television network, distributed nationwide in high definition (HD) and standard definition (SD) to 88.5 million homes. As the country’s leading destination for quality family entertainment, Hallmark Channel delivers on the 100-year legacy of the Hallmark brand. In addition to its signature new, original movies, the network features an ambitious lineup of other new, original content, including scripted primetime series, such as “Good Witch,” “When Calls the Heart” and “Chesapeake Shores”; annual specials including “Kitten Bowl” and “Hero Dog Awards”; and a daily, two-hour lifestyle show, “Home & Family.” Additionally, Hallmark Channel is the exclusive home to world premiere presentations of the acclaimed Hallmark Hall of Fame franchise. Dedicated to helping viewers celebrate life’s special moments, Hallmark Channel also offers annual holiday programming franchises, including “Countdown to Christmas,” “Countdown to Valentine’s Day,” “Summer Nights,” “Fall Harvest” and “Winterfest.” Rounding out the network’s diverse slate are some of television’s most beloved comedies and series, including “The Golden Girls,” “The Middle,” “Last Man Standing” and “Frasier.”

My Take...
If you are loving Spring and can't hardly wait to dive into Summer, then this movie news is for You! This is the First Movie to be officially announced for Hallmark's "Summer Nights" event! Did you  notice that Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Programming and Publicity at Hallmark, shared in the press release above - there will be SIX all new original movies for "Summer Nights!" So far, that's the most for any of Hallmark's special block of movie themes this year. Course, Christmas will far surpass that! Nothing can top Christmas! Another fun element to this movie is that it will include Hallmark's two-year-old adopted Jack Russell Terrier mix - Happy the Dog! I'm sure he will be adorable in it!

Coinciding, almost at that same time with the premiere of "Love At The Shore," on Saturday Night will be the return of "Chesapeake Shores," which will air on Sunday Nights, beginning July 23!

As far as the actors go in "Love At The Shore," TV Movie fans may recognize Peter Porte from last year's Christmas movie "A Cinderella Christmas," which aired on ION.

DVD ALERT: Hallmark Movies New to Amazon!

Gosh, it doesn't seem all that long ago that I added to my DVD page - HALLMARK MOVIES ON DVD from A to Z - that these movies (below!) were Coming Soon and now AMAZON has them available for Pre-Order! Yes! Awesome! You may think - Oh, it's Pre-Order, no need to click-and-get, quite yet, until it's actually available, but Pre-Order is THE BEST because Amazon has Pre-Order Price Guarantee! If you are not familiar with it, this is basically what it means - "Order now and if the Amazon.com price decreases between your order time and the end of the day of the release date, you'll receive the lowest price!" Cool, huh? I mean, who doesn't love a good deal? (if you want more details, on Amazon's terms & conditions - click here and scroll down to Special offers and Product promotions)

So. Now, which movies are coming? Here's the scoop! I've got your Movie Ticket! You'll have to supply the popcorn! (And, a BIG thank you to my movie friend and fellow blogger, Rissi, for catching these are brand new to Amazon and letting me know! Super Sweet!)

(Please know: The first DVD cover, as I share this, has not been released, yet - so I used their Hallmark poster, which typically ends up being the same.)

Okay, I'm going with my Favorite DVD Release first! It is (drumroll please!)...

(Love this sweet "Valentine-themed" movie, but to be honest, I've never been fond of the official poster (pictured above) for this movie. Both Shane and Oliver are wonderful, but these two pictures just never seemed to go together, in my opinion. I would love if they did something different for the DVD cover, especially if they included Norman and Rita, too. Maybe, even something like the DVD cover I created, see here!)

The next new Hallmark movie on DVD is...

(This DVD is a good one for all music lovers- especially all of you Debbie Gibson fans out there! It's also a movie "When Calls the Heart" fans will surely enjoy - due to the fact that you will see several cast members from the series, including my favorite, Rosemary - portrayed by actress Pascale Hutton!)

Hallmark also has a couple of New Movies Available on Amazon Video -

Two 'June Wedding' movies...

(This Movie is all about a Mother and Father, who don't get along, but try their best to fake it - all while planning their daughter's wedding! I won't give Hallmark's happy ending away, but just maybe, perhaps, they begin to "Love, Again!")

UPDATE! Love, Again is Now Available on DVD!

and the Second 'June Wedding' Movie new to Amazon Video is...

(It's almost hard to believe, but this is the first movie Paul Greene worked on for the Hallmark Channel! It seems, now, he has been on the channel always, but alas, this was his start with co-star Danica McKellar, and now he has become a regular, who has stolen many hearts... on "When Calls the Heart!")

UPDATE! Perfect Match is Now Available on DVD!

Speaking of "When Calls the Heart"...

A New DVD Release for Season 4 is available Tuesday, April 18th, 2017!

And, there's even more "When Calls the Heart" DVD News...

(This is such a beautiful series for all ages - the entire family! You'll definitely want to add these "When Calls The Heart" DVDs to your cherished Hallmark movie collection!)

I hope you have enjoyed all of this Hallmark Movie News! I'm hopeful the two June Wedding Movies I mentioned above, ("Perfect Match" & "Love, Again") will eventually be released on DVD, too. Until then, stay tuned!!!

And, be sure to visit my DVD page - HALLMARK MOVIES ON DVD from A to Z - for all the DVD news you can handle!!!
