    Good Witch

    When we have seen aerial shots of the building it goes quite far back and has room for lots of rooms. And I think Nick was moving into some sort of attic that they were cleaning out for his stuff.

    A Place To Call Home

    Sir Richard had a grudge against Jack for having beaten him up that night at Ash Park, as well as having a vendetta against the whole Ash Park/Bligh clan. And he knew that Jack would be attacking him personally in his campaigning. Also, since Sir Richard was counting on George being elected so he could get his coal mine in the district, he didn't want any threat to George's election. Even before Jack announced his campaign, Sir Richard was trying to get him removed from the hospital, because of his vendetta.

    I love her nose! She would look ordinary - beautiful but ordinary - without it. I prefer that actresses not look like the usual cookie-cutter pretty people. There are so many of them I simply cannot tell apart because they all look the same. Marta has her own unique beauty.

    So who do we think the new mayoral intern is spying for? I originally thought it might be the Blairsville mayor's father, but since it was the intern who informed Abigail that the property in question was the site of the Wishing Well and effectively killed the country club land deal, that doesn't seem likely. Is there someone else with a grudge against the Merriwicks? And by the way, for someone who "always gets what he wants", the father sure gave up in a hurry.

    Merciful heavens. The Hallmark movie storylines have invaded the Good Witch. First was the wedding storyline. Last week it was the save-the-vineyard storyline. Tonight it was the Prince of Cordonia visits Middleton incognito. Which one is next?? What's up with Sam's hair? Was I imagining it or has it changed - different haircut? Dyed? He has been looking old lately, are they trying to make him look younger? Something was different. And...Martha's back as mayor. I don't understand all this moving the town line around willy-nilly, but as long as Abigail stops constantly complaining about being mayor, getting Martha back is good. It's where she belongs.
  6. Does Hallmark have any series other than When Calls the Heart and Good Witch? I am so tired of the same-old/same-old movies repeated over and over and over, same actors, same plots, same checklist. I don't like most of what is on other channels, it would be nice to have some Hallmark series as an alternative. (I wish I could get the mysteries channel, but my cable company doesn't offer it.)

    Death In Paradise

    And so season 8 ends. They faked us out with Jack wanting to go back to London. I suppose Madeleine will stay on, having fallen in love with the island. Ruby was funny with her cursed playing card. When she was digging in the dumpster, you just knew she was going to take a nosedive into it. I'm glad we have two more seasons to look forward to.

    They have had a lot of different writers - 22 listed on the IMDB. I suppose that lines up with the changes in Cassie's character and the atmosphere of the show. From a mysterious witch with a black cat named Isis and a witch's broom, who dressed in black, was truly magical, and had an occult shop (Bell, Book, and Candle - remember where that name comes from?) to a woman who dresses "normally" and whose shop has been completely transformed into a light, bright gift shop that no longer dispenses potions and oddities, the concept of a Good Witch has been consistently watered down. Now it is pretty much just a romance show, for Cassie and all the other characters. It is a pleasant show, just not what it originally was. In short, Cassandra Nightingale, the Good Witch, has been Hallmarked.

    I don't think they were bad episodes; I still enjoy watching the show. I guess I am expressing a disappointment with the way the show has shifted from the beginning, so I get picky about the little things. (And I did get really tired of the everlasting wedding storyline.) But I still record the show, and buy the DVDs, because overall I do like the series. I will be interested to see what direction they take this season.

    Whew! The wedding is finally over! Now what? Ever since the series began the focus has been on Cassie and Sam's courtship and wedding. Where do they go from here? This season so far (all two episodes!) has seemed more of an ensemble show, with all the other characters and their storylines, rather than featuring Cassie (at least until the wedding scene). Since I have found the other characters far more interesting than the constant will they/ won't they wedding, this is a good thing. Adding several new characters this season, along with the regulars, doesn't leave too much time for whatever they are going to give to Cassie. Although, maybe if the above posted rumor is true, either 1.) Cassie will be pregnant, though she and Sam seem a bit old to start yet another family, or 2) Catherine will not be in the show as much. We shall see. Some other thoughts: Cassie's wedding dress was beautiful. So was Grace responsible for all the things going wrong, as she feared? The white horse leading them to the Forever Tree - who didn't see that coming? I agree with the above post - why doesn't Martha just move into Middleton, if she really wants to be mayor again? Or will they continue with her new career as professional advice giver? She never seems to stick with anything very long. (I could see the storyline being that she keeps giving advice that goes wrong and gets fired.)

    I realize that Hallmark Channel is all about weddings these days, but I hope they finally get this over with for Cassie. Her wedding has been the focus of the show for far too long. I hope they haven't been doing this because they have run out of other ideas. I agree about Grace's dress, not quite right for the occasion. Perhaps they wanted to emphasize that she is growing up so they can give her more grown up storylines. I think they have also played up the Abigail as mayor storyline as far as they can (it never was believable), and hope they can get Martha back where she belongs. The Forever Tree story seems off - that famous a tree, that is part of the Merriwick/Middleton mythology, and no one knows where it is? How much of Middleton is left unexplored? Far too many commercials! I am surprised they were able to get as much story in between commercials as they did. Let's get the wedding over with tonight and move on! Please!

    It's not required, but the specials do continue all the storylines, rather like a mini-series in between seasons. They usually do a "previously on" when a new season starts, which should catch you up.

    Reminder - The new season begins today - and there will be another episode tomorrow.

    I just purchased the season 6 DVD of APTCH. I had been waiting because the price was previously around $47, but I looked again today and it was $30. Amazon is offering a limited time deal at that price, so if you are interested hop on over; I don't know when that deal expires. (Edited to add: I am in the US.)
