I must admit to watching an episode of this show today. I skipped through most of it. A hot young guy moved to town and reopened the saloon. There was drinking and music playing and gambling going on past 10pm and the townspeople weren't having it. The really fucked up thing was how fake everything was. Maybe it was analog, but Dr. Quinn felt real. On this fucked up show, everyone is Botoxed to death. With the women it's fine, but the men on this show look nothing like rugged individualists.

I don’t know if this is right thread. Just read that Coughlins daughters HAVE DECIDED THEY WILL NOT RETURN TO USC BECAUSE THEY WOULD BE VICIOUSLY BULLIED.
Sounded like the statement came from Lori as well. Talk about clueless and entitled rich white bitches!!!! They didn’t want USC to make the decision for them, ????
I hope Lori and her ugly sunburnt husband see their jobs dry up ... as it has already started. If those parents had A VERY SMALL AMOUNT OF BRAIN CELLS, they should have immediately apologized, Mea culpa—- like Hugh Grant did.
I hope those anorexic white bitches choke on a piece of lettuce .....

R37 I think they will just do a recast of the same character. This season already is about the aftermath of the main male character's death. The show is too lighthearted to kill two major characters this close together. Also, since the season is already filmed, it is known they want a new actress to re-film Lori's scenes so they can get the show back on the air as soon as possible. The show is Hallmark's highest rated show, and the new season just began airing.
|by Anonymous||reply 44||03/16/2019|
The EP is Michael Landon Jr. He's known Gilbert all their lives, obviously. I'd be about as shocked as Clay Aiken coming out if she gets cast.
|by Anonymous||reply 45||03/16/2019|
R29 Hallmark's main audience is straight women, so they don't care if the women are attractive. If they are attractive, they must not be overtly sexual. Lori Loughlin fit that mold well.

I think Melissa Joan Hart would be a tad too raunchy for Hallmark. For their standards Melissa & Joey was practically softporn with lewd language.
They could get Canada's treasure Magan Follows (Ann From Green Gables & Reign) playing the older sister taking over her younger sister's home and business while she's away.

For the of the stupidity floating through this thread (and some genuinely funny posts as well, - HEATHER FUCKING LOCKLEAR!), Megan Fallows is actually an interesting idea... I wonder if she has any interest in a program so bland and saccharine. Didn't "Reign" give her a meatier, more conniving role?
Don't fret fans of Hallmark, it's Kelli Martin to the rescue since Garage Sale Mysteries has been yanked from the schedule. I saw a promo on the Hallmark channel this morning... they are going to 'marathon' the first series Kelli Martin starred in for them - The Mystery Woman, which, inexplicably co-starred Clarence Williams, III.

R24 On Dr. Quinn had a much larger budget and better writers. One of the things that bothers me about the show is the wardrobe, makeup and hair. It looks way too contemporary.

Vanessa Marcil, mentioned earlier is also too sexy for Hallmark.

^^ While her Ghost Whisperer series was in production/in the evening television lineup, we'd refer to her show as "The Boob Whisperer."
|by Anonymous||reply 77||03/17/2019|
R72 Titles do not have to be grammatical, the title is an inversion for emphasis, basically a form of poetic license. It should be understood to be When the Heart Calls, with the "calls" being about when your heart calls on you to fall in love, convert to a religion, etc... Jenette Oke, the author of the original books really liked to do that. Other books in the same series as When Calls The Heart, include When Comes the Spring, When Breaks the Dawn, and When Hope Springs New.

I like the Megan Follows idea but would guess a recast (or reimagined character, probably a sister or cousin) will go with someone younger.

Of course, I think it's already been suggested that Alison Arngrim should arrive in town... perhaps Lori's character could get trampelled by a group of school children who rush to enter the WCtH's new schoolhouse where they meet Alison who is their new teacher!
The children soon learn that the new teacher does not play favorites and the spoiled brats of the upper class citizens sit in the back, far away from the wood stove.
