There seem to be a few inveterate fans of the Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries out there. Let this thread be a place to discuss them, either in sincere appreciation or just plain snark. The Washington Post published an article today (Dec. 10, 2017) about the Hallmark Channel's Christmas movies and how they've become quite popular viewing during this time of political upheaval. The link is We can’t take any more of 2017, so we’ve turned to the Hallmark Channel in desperation (probably behind a paywall, alas). I've been watching the Hallmark Channel's movies for several years now, because there's almost always original programming available on Saturday nights. And right now, I'm watching it most of the time (along with HGTV) because I need to escape from "all that stuff out there." You know what I'm talking about.
