Christmas Movies Week 1 Takeaway

Christmas Movie Season has started! I just love when the Christmas Movies start playing 24/7. Here are a few takeaways I have observed from the first full week.

1) Lifetime does not have movies 24/7 (even though they are advertising it)

2) I’m not sold on this Saturday and Sunday 8:00 new movies on Hallmark and 10:00 new movies at 10:00 on Movies and Mysteries. I get why they are doing it, but that means I have to stay up till 12:00 if I’m really into the Sunday night movie and my alarm goes off at 4:40 on Monday morning.

3) While the Lifetime Movies are okay they just don’t hold up the Hallmark Movies (at least to me).

4) Maybe it’s because we went so long without new movies I am actually enjoying some of the new movies and not feeling like they are the same plot just with different actors.

When Calls the Heart after Lori

I am not a huge When Calls the Heart fan but I did tune in last night to see how they wrote Lori Laughlin’s character out. I really think in the long run they should recast her. I think what they did for now is just a bandaid, her character is too important for the show. But on another note I’m really liking that new Mountie. But then again he also plays on one of my other favorite shows Heartland.

Side Note: because When Calls the Heart was on at the same time as the new Hailey Dean Mysteries movie last night I was torn on which one to watch. This is how you know you really are a Hallmark Junkie, I had one playing on my kindle while the other was playing on my tv.
