    I guess the app has to be updated for Christmas 2019 - they seem to be pushing the "Summer Nights" series right now.

    Just watched "Most Wonderful Time of the year" Henry Winkler is always fun. But I have a question : Is Brooke Burns a clone of Christine Baranski? She looks like a younger twin. Resemblance is uncanny

    That’s one of my favorites. Henry Winkler is pretty funny in it.

    Might I like this show, even if I'm not familiar with When Calls the Heart?

    You don't need to have watched When Calls the Heart, although two stars from that show will guest-star in the second episode of this one.

    If you liked Little House on the Prairie, you'll like When Hope Calls.

    This is supposedly a 1 time only linear tv broadcast of When Hope Calls. If anyones like it, you will then have to subscribe to Hallmark Movies Now and watch it online through their app.

    I enjoy Hallmark Channel, but not enough to pay extra for it.

    Technically, it's sort of an "incestuous" thing....you will have some of the same people all over content from Hallmark on the different channels/movies/etc. :)

    It's true that Hallmark has a huge stable of actors that pop up in multiple movies each year. However, it was two characters from When Calls the Heart who crossed over to When Hope Calls in that second episode. Not actors from WCTH playing all-new characters.

    It's also funny(to me anyway) when I see them pop up in the CW Superhero shows. (The Canadian ones, anyway)

    Yes, indeed. Whenever I see Andrea Brooks, who's the nurse in When Calls the Heart and who pops up in some of the rom-com movies, I shout, "Miss Tessmacher!" in Lex Luthor's voice. (Usually Gene Hackman's but now occasionally Jon Cryer's.) :D

    Eloise Mumford is now guest-starring on Chicago Fire as Brett's high school BFF who did bad things when she visited Chicago last year. I'm sitting here and muttering, "No, no, no, Eloise cannot be a bad girl, she's a Hallmark Channel lead!"

    She also plays one of the most important characters in the 50 Shades of Grey movies in my mind. Without her character, there would be no movies.

    Don't know if I need to do this but....

    Eloise Mumford's character was sick so her roommate Anastasia took her place interviewing Christian Grey. They may never have met otherwise.

    Hallmark Mystery Channel did it again. As soon as I saw the list of guest stars in the opening credits of the latest Ruby Herring episode ("Her Last Breath"), I knew who the killer would turn out to be. It was the only name I recognized, that brought someone's face to mind.

    I find that to be common with mystery shows and movies. It happened recently on one of the main network shows, Instinct. As soon as I saw a "Hallmark actor" in the cast, I knew he would end up being the serial killer they were after. I didn't know any of the other actors that were playing suspects.

    They don't typically hire such actors for "background" parts.

    Taylor Cole (who plays Ruby Herring) has been a brunette, a blonde, and a redhead.

    Kind of wish I hadn't read this thread before I got all caught up on Instinct. As soon as I saw the actor in question, I knew he was the killer.

    Sorry. I forgot the context would give away what I was trying to be vague about, at least to someone that understood the context...
