  1. I liked the show without an audience, I didn’t miss them at all. Whoever figured out that they needed Derek as a judge should be given a raise. His energy saved the show and we know he’s a real dancer to back it up. I also hope he held out for a big paycheck, especially since they fired his girlfriend last year the way they did Sharna and Gleb or Artem. Tom is the voice of the show, Tyra is great, but not for this show. Claiming she’s watched it since the beginning...she didn’t know Carrie Ann deducts a point for lifts? Since the beginning... The dancing was not great, I think they gave them less practice time this year. I wonder if it’s easier to dance without the audience?
  2. I thought Sam was a Cardiologist who then took up family practice but left it to be a hospital administrator but is somehow now a neurosurgeon? I’d be nervous too for him and the patient. I don’t mind the mystery, yes the gems are hokey and unnecessary but at least it brings some magic back. I didn’t bother with last season, the delayed wedding for years was dumb. See ya Grace! No need to come home for holidays! The show needed to get out of the teenage angst business.
  3. I’ve binged watched the series up to this point (although I’ve looked ahead to see what’s coming...) and it looks like the show ran out of ideas once Demelza slept with Hugh. Why do they keep revisiting her infidelity each episode? Ross literally has Valentine walking around as a reminder of his (that all important parties know is his) but he keeps doubting Demelza of all people. How was she supposed to know how to behave in London? Why did he not step in earlier with Adderly? Also, why would Geoffrey Charles say a dumb thing like Valentine is the spitting image of Ross? In front of George? Ugh.
  4. Yes to all of this! She and Lucas actually have a relationship—dates, the library, the book deal, her helping with his business. They are in each other’s lives. If Ally didn’t exist there would be no reason for them to interact. In fact, would she even want to know the new Mountie if he didn’t have a niece? It’s just mind boggling that this is the route they are taking. I did find it interesting that she didn’t immediately accept his invitation after telling him to ask her out. As for Lee’s sister...yet another plot hole. Was it to show us that she had grown kids so obviously they were too old to have a baby? I think Rosemary was supposed to be Jack’s age. I don’t know about Lee but the actor that plays him is 50 something. They just seem to whine about not having a kid but don’t do anything about it even when orphans are in town.
  5. They normally begin filming in August but who knows what this year will bring. I suspect we’ll not see anymore new Hallmark movies until November or later. I think they’ll prioritize Christmas movies over all else since that’s their money maker and they can’t film for the foreseeable future.

  7. Why is she literally throwing herself (that hug in front of the whole town) at a guy who she has nothing in common with? Why can’t he tell her just to leave him alone? He’s only talking to her because of Ally or Bill are pushing him to. I wondered if the hug and Lucas’ sad look was supposed to mirror last year’s dance with Lucas and Nathan’s sad look? The thing is, they aren’t equal circumstances, last year she really didn’t know either guy. This year she’s been on dates with Lucas, they’ve gotten to know each other, he’s made his intentions known. Nathan has done nothing but yell at her and use her for help with Ally. And yet all of her looks are for Nathan, it makes no sense. Looking at the DVD cover they’ve even given Kevin second billing with the “and” distinction which gives away where this is heading if even the character’s actions don’t.
  8. I do not understand how Lucas being amazingly supportive of her, to the point of working to get her book published generates the same anger in her as Nathan literally yelling at her for saving a kid in the storm. Lucas supports her, Nathan yells at her and ignores and refuses to talk to her and it makes her question if she can trust Lucas? Shouldn't it make her wonder if Nathan has anger issues or even thinks of her as a friend? I did watch the sneak peek. A horse making sounds distracts Nathan from asking her out, like 4 times in one scene. Ridiculous. She has told him she would say yes, why can't he string a sentence together? It's like he doesn't really want to ask her, but everyone expects him to. Who's shot: 1. Lucas is shot by someone from his past in a business deal gone wrong. He dies, triangle over Nathan wins. 2. Nathan is shot, Elizabeth finally declares her love for him, he remains unconscious, Lucas overhears the declaration of love, leaves Hope Valley. 3. Ally the annoying niece gets caught in the crossfire, Nathan and Elizabeth finally bond as she recovers. 4. Henry gets shot by one of his employees or investors, decides to leave town to find Abigail and live happily every after. 5. Lee's sister who just arrived, gets shot, Lee and Rosemary inherit her children. 6. No one gets shot, its just a red herring.
  9. So, I only watched Elizabeth say yes to Lucas about the book deal and the last two minutes with Elizabeth and Nathan. I know she was going to push him earlier in the episode to ask her out. I’m guessing the last scene only happened because Bill intervened with Nathan in someway. He looked pained to compliment her about saving the girl. To me he comes across as that boy in high school who is too cool to ask the girl out that he likes so he’s a jerk to her and he’s also really insecure. Elizabeth has been nothing but encouraging to him even basically apologizing for going out with Lucas. Which I find really sad because she had a perfect time with Lucas. The fact that Nathan could only get out a “you matter to me” 2 years in is ridiculous. He has a grown up job, a kid and can only tell the woman who’s basically said “I’m yours, just ask” she matters? Whatever. Lucas treats her like the woman she is, strong, capable and interesting.
  10. All the marketing has been spent on this love triangle and they’ve spent 2 seasons with these 3. I don’t see her choosing someone totally new at this point. Baby Jack will soon be little Jack and in need of a younger sibling.
  11. And yet Jer and Auj spent Easter at Auj’s parents house and are always out at the farm but Amy can’t see them during the pandemic. Social distancing means only being around the people that live in your house. Easter isn’t an exception to that.
  12. They posted photos of Easter, wherein they spent the day at Auj’s parents house. So much for social distancing. You don’t get a day off from it for Easter.
  13. I’d say it’s B. I prefer Lucas and Elizabeth together and honestly, he’s the only one actually trying to woo her. Nathan thinks he can just get away with smiling at her from a distance. Unfortunately, the way the story is being written is that even when Lucas is around (with the exception of their date) Elizabeth is always looking past him for Nathan. I guess she likes being treated poorly instead of well? He’s been a total ass to her other than giving her flowers (which was only done because everyone suggested it). I don’t really get where they take the story if she ends up with another Mountie. Does anyone want to watch Elizabeth, Nathan, Ally and Jack sitting around the table? It just seems so boring especially since he seems so volital. With 2 episodes left I think someone must make a move to kiss someone and I can’t see them letting her kiss someone she won’t marry because the show is so chaste.
  14. I don’t know, at first I was offended by the Missouri stuff but then I looked over at my mother in law who fled to my house (with no warning) for the pandemic from Missouri because her hick husband wouldn’t stop going in to work or family gatherings. He’s in his 80’s and doesn’t have to work. So I would say it was accurately portrayed and they will all be miserable. How do Haley and Dylan afford Mitchell and Cam’s old place? Mitchell was a lawyer, Cam eventually a Vice Principal but Haley who has no job and Dylan who is a nurse can afford the same place? Also Claire and Phil taking off on an RV trip just aged them by 15 years. Aren’t they a little young for that?

  16. Part one was definitely better than Part 2. They should’ve ended it in the first half hour. How do the Dunphy kids not know how to survive? No one thought to buy food? Alex can’t do basic math? I can’t believe that Cam would really want to uproot them to Missouri. To visit? Sure, but to live? No. It was also a weird stage of life for them to adopt again.
  17. The whole point of the wedding was for Elizabeth to realize and be told that she’s ready to move on from Jack. Clara was a young widower too (it’s been 7 years at this point) and having her and Elizabeth tell each other they were ready for new love will hopefully be that catalyst she needs. It didn’t hurt that she caught the bouquet and had her photo taken with Nathan. The show hasn’t played up the triangle at all. She is team Nathan all the way and he comes with a built in babysitter in Ally. Too bad he’s sooo boring. Ugh.
  18. I think it's painfully obvious at this point they are setting up another Elizabeth/Mountie romance. Ugh. Elizabeth has essentially become Allie's mother this season. Hosting her slumber party, having her stay with her while the Uncle is gone, intervening on her behalf with the Uncle. In contrast, she's had about 5 minutes of time with Lucas (who I think knows he's friend zoned) and it's been all about her writing. The thing is, Nathan is so boring, like the same level of Jesse and Clara boring. He's a character in the town, but couldn't be more boring, the only thing that gives him dimension is that his niece lives with him and she can be really annoying. Its starting to feel like the entire season is built around Allie, because she gets into some kind of trouble every week.
  19. Nathan is just a jerk, right? He literally snaps at everyone but Elizabeth and even then you can tell he’s barely not snapping at her. Time after time Lucas shows compassion but of course Elizabeth is blinded by the Mountie uniform. I’m guessing they’ve written out the sitter for her baby in the hopes Allie will fill that role when they get married down the road.
  20. It’s so obvious they are planning for Elizabeth to be with the Mountie again. She holds her breath everytime she sees or interacts with him. The way the actor is playing the role though makes him seem completely oblivious to her and to the town. She has friend zoned Lucas to his own detriment, they are the ones who actually have things in common. Books, libraries, book publishing, worldliness. All the Mountie has to offer is a niece that could watch the baby regularly. They need to give Rosemary and Lee a kid. They’ve gone too far down the infertility road to leave them without a child now.
  21. I just read a Vulture article that was titled “the Sandition creators know you’re devastated by the Ending”. They are too. They go onto say that the finale was meant to be the midway point for Sidney and Charlotte. They are meant to be together and this was just a bump in the road. Surely Sidney would’ve found another way besides marrying the rich girl because he was meant to be the romantic hero. The town of Sandition was meant to the main character which is why the show/novel wasn’t called “Charlotte.” They’d like a second season to clear up the mess that was the finale.
  22. Nope, it flopped in the UK. PBS raises money for themselves which helps buy shows not produce them. The real crime is that they showed it here knowing it the ending. Why on earth have him stop the carriage to break her heart again? That was just cruel.

  25. By having cliffhangers the writer thought that surely they’d get a second season. Instead, the dwindled audience that was left at the of the series tries to reconcile the “ending” that was not meant to be the “ending.” Had the series continued I think we would seen Charlotte back at Sandition maybe exploring life with Stringer and then eventually Sidney unless he really turned out to be a Willouhby.
