I have been watching What Calls The Heart on Lifetime and love it. What I love most is how sweet, quiet and lovely this series is. It reminds me of my childhood and the shows that were on TV while I was a child.
This is a show you can watch with your whole family without fear that a curse or slang word will be dropped. There will be no uncomfortable, sexy scenes that you hope are over your kids head while you squirm in your seat waiting for the scene to end. No my friend! This is a lovely show where girls are modest and men are gentlemen.
In this episode Rosemary, Jack's ex-fiance is looking to make him hers again and will do what she has to in order to get her man back. While Elizabeth meets a young man whose educational abilities surprise her so much that pays a visit to his mothers home to tell her how gifted he is (as if a mother wouldn't know). Elizabeth also has a decision to make on her future. Abagail has her hands full as she and Mr. Avery work on making the mine accountable for the loss of the men of the town.
There is so much going on with this episode that I don't even know where to start so I will leave you with this:
- Jack proves he is a wonderful man with a huge heart.
- Elizabeth knows where she needs to be
- Abagail is stronger than many woman on TV
- Mr. Avery used to be on General Hospital. Hello Frisco.
- and Rosemary needs to get her butt out of dodge!
Thanks Michael Landon Jr and Hallmark for continuing to make family friendly movies and shows that you can watch even if your kids are awake!
