  1. So Amazing Winter Romance is awful? I’ve been trying to watch it and I just don’t get it. Another city girl goes home to her small town for inspiration and runs into her high school best bud. Random girl from NYC decides to love there too and likes the same guy. The guy is totally boring and I find it hard to believe he’s the only catch in town. Could the bakery have been a more depressing set? No color or warmth.
  2. My mom said it’s so the better looking one gets all the attention. The thing is though, she just looks normal in this Iceland movie but is pretty in real life. I would guess they were trying to down play her looks so as not to compete with the lead. I thought the lead and the tour guide had way more chemistry in their scenes than she did with Colin. It also made no sense for the friend the be paired off with the tour guide when they had no chemistry. They should’ve cast the pairings differently. The scenery was amazing! The winter fest countdown was totally lame, Unleashing Mr Darcy as number 1? It’s a summer movie!
  3. Robyn needs her thyroid checked, that neck swelling is not normal. Christine doesn’t have to move, doesn’t she own the house she’s in? Everyone else is renting.
  4. Could someone please get Charlotte some spectacles? The squinting is so distracting. I loathe all of the characters associated with the manor house. There’s no way the niece would’ve been allowed to take a bath in a room full of people. There’s no way that Austen intended a slightly incestuous step sibling couple. Charlotte can’t marry the construction manager because he’s a tradesman. The only thing that resembles an Austen story is the clothing, sort of.
  5. I didn't like it, but I'll keep watching hoping that maybe it will get better? It's hardly Jane Austen though. Sidney (Darcy 2.0) Charlotte (Elizabeth B.), Sidney's sister reminded me of Jane Fairfaxes Aunt in Emma. The brother and step sister are gross and some how related to the rich old lady? But the poor niece is as well? Sidney's involvement with the girl from Antigua is puzzling, why on earth would they have brought her to England? I don't find Charlotte all that likeable but atleast the heroine comes from a middle class family this time and doesn't have to marry for money if she doesn't want to.
  6. There was no reason to move other than they needed some drama for the show. The women do not want to live under the same roof so Kody moving them to rentals again with the idea of building a big house creates the needed drama. The years have not been kind to anyone but Christine just going off those flashbacks. If they stay together, the will all end up in the same house eventually.
  7. Ember is sick again. I know they believe in oils but maybe it’s time to bring out some bleach and get the house disinfected before the imminent baby arrives? Go to Auj’s parents for the night if they don’t want to be around the chemicals and hire cleaners? I would think Auj is in no shape to deep clean at this point.
  8. Just watched the Christmas special... I prefer Elizabeth with Lucas, but they had no story together in the Christmas special. I suppose the writers were trying to balance out she and Lucas dancing in the finale with tree shopping with Nathan at Christmas. She mooned over Nathan the entire episode, and for what? He accepted a promotion and was happy to leave until his niece started pouting. Elizabeth basically threw her self at him (in a modest 1900’s way) trying to remind him of all the friends he had in town and to not leave them. Elizabeth and Lucas had 2 conversations about Christmas and that was it. Lucas is the better match but apparently the show will only allow Elizabeth to be with a Mountie. He’s so boring. Ugh.
  9. I liked the Dream Home this year and the decorating is pretty solid. I even enjoyed the special because they didn't make it into one big commercial likes it's been in the recent past. Yes, everything is sponsored, but they did it mostly by showing boxes or how things worked instead of screaming sponsor names over and over again. Well done!
  10. So Tori insta storied that Lilah’s 3rd bath was today...I’m not a parent so I wonder if that’s normal for a baby to be bathed every 10 days or so?
  11. Hallmark has a PDA problem. Just watched A Recipe for the Perfect Christmas on UP. The leads kiss 45 minutes in, then they actually cuddle on the couch in the next 30 minutes while facing all the usual Christmas movie tropes (can they save the inn, will he leave)? Even looking at Hallmark movies from 2016 there was far more affection. This year, everyone is awkward and waits till the last minute for a peck on the lips. Really? Whatever happened to holding hands or an arm around the shoulders? Perhaps even standing less than 2 feet away from each other.
  12. I feel like the Hallmark Christmas movies are especially bad this year. Where's a Crown for Christmas or Christmas in Homestead, quality movie? Granted, I haven't seen all of them but I kind of hated Christmas Under the Stars, Sense Sensibility and Snowmen, and Christmas in Rome wasn't great, we could tell it was summer! Candace's movie was a little too much to believe. The only ones I've liked so far are the Jodie Sweetin Candy Cane one and Christmas in Evergreen because I like the leads and the advent calendar idea. I hope this weekend's movies are better.
  13. Well, and how did she adopt a kid without a permanent address? Wouldn’t there have been a home inspection? She was living in a one room attic! No kitchen, maybe a bathroom?
  14. Exactly! And why did she leave the giant trunk in her apartment? Where did that end up? The movers had already been there. I also find it unbelievable that she wouldn’t have been adopted. And why didn’t the dad send the broken wing with the angel to be fixed? Ugh!
  15. Ok Christmas Town...she gets stuck in the town because the train is stuck. Takes a job in the local cafe 5 minutes after walking in even though she’s just spending the night...Really? I liked the foster care storyline but not a fan of promoting the Salvation Army. They are a church vs a charity. Did they pay for product placement like Balsam Hill?
