  1. A Heartland spin-off? I had no idea this existed.

  2. Hi Net! Just wanted to let you know that the one character on Hudson is actually gay... it's a shame that they have to add that into the show:(

    1. I'm disappointed to hear this news about "Hudson." I'll definitely be skipping this show now.

    2. Me too. I stumbled upon the news on an old instagram post a while ago. It is disappointing, especially that Uptv is okay with airing it! Do you think they are aware?

    3. They surely are aware of this content. While most of their programming and movies are family-friendly, I have found some through the years that are not.

  3. Gay? I will skip this one.

  4. Thanks for the heads up about Hudson, I've been turning it off after Heartland. I still enjoy Heartland but it also seems a little less "clean" than it used to be. :(

  5. I thought UpTV was a Christian/family channel up until Lou Flemming's openly gay cohort came on the screen! Makes me sick that they relate Christian with homosexuality, it don't relate!!!

  6. Very disappointed to turn on Heartland and see the introduction of a gay character! I thought this was a Christian network and it would be family friendly. This is very confusing to explain to children. I am very sad and will not be watching anymore.
