    When is Hallmark going to stop putting PA license plates on the front of vehicles? PA doesn't have front plates, except on tractor trailers (no plate on rear of tractor).

    Trying to get through A Merry Christmas Match again. I’m halfway through but I’m still not loving this movie. I really don’t like the actors and I don’t see any chemistry between them at all.

    it’s been a while since I have disliked Hallmark Christmas movies. I think it was 2014 where I just didn’t like any of them.

    In Hallmark's defense, that's a pretty damn good track record.

    Absolutely!!! Like I said, this movie was the first one in a very long time but I just don’t like it. Trying to finish it just so it’ll be done but I think I’m gonna bail.

    One of Hallmark’s favorite lead actresses has started showing up my dreams. I’m a little too old for that nonsense. OTOH they’re dreams rather than nightmares, so I have to thank Hallmark for that much, at least.

    (No, it’s not Lacey Chabert or Candace Cameron Bure or Taylor Cole.)

    Inquiring minds want to know!

    For me, it's not so much the movie "Franchise" but rather TV show actress Catherine Bell. :)

    Side note, a good chunk of the holiday music channels have started on XM.

    Catherine Bell would at least be age-appropriate (she's 51). I've always had a thing for Diane Lane, who's 54 (although not in her portrayal of Martha Kent in Superman v Batman).

    Interestingly enough, Hallmark likes its leading ladies to be grownups. Lori Loughlin is 55. Josie Bissett is 49. Danica McKellar is 44. Candace Cameron Bure is 43. Ashley Williams is 41. Rachael Leigh Cook and Jill Wagner are 40. Fiona Gubelmann and Maggie Lawson are 39. Lacy Chabert, Brooke D'Orsay, and Meghan Ory are 37. Taylor Cole, Erin Krakow, and Emilie Ullerup are 35. Eloise Mumford and Becca Tobin is 33. Alexa PenaVega is 31. Jessica Lowndes is 30. Laci Mailey and Merritt Patterson are 29.

    To be fair, here are some of the leading men's ages: Jack Wagner is 60 (!!). James Denton is 54. Paul Greene and Stephen Huszar are 45. Brendan Elliott is 44. Brendan Fehr is 42. Justin Bruenig, Jesse Metcalfe, and Andrew Walker are 40. Niall Matter and Luke McFarlane are 39. Daniel Lissing is 38. Wes Brown and Sean Faris are 37. Ryan Paevey is 35. Carlos PenaVega is 30. Chris McNally seems to be the youngest at 26.

    It's hard to believe that Winnie Cooper is now 44.

    It's hard to believe that Frisco Jones is now 60 and Aunt Becky is now 55.

    Some days it's hard for me to believe how old I am (63). Other days, I feel every goddamn year plus 30 more.

    It's Lacy Chabert (37) whose age gets me . . . .

    Jennifer Love Hewitt is 40, Neve Campbell is 46, Scott Wolf is 51, and Matthew Fox is 53.

    (The "Party of Five" now goes to the Early Bird dinner at Mel's Diner in Sarasota, Florida.)

    Scott, BTW, will star in Hallmark's "A Christmas Love Story" with Kristen Chenoweth, airing Dec. 7.

    Pretty good cast for the movie filmed in my old hometown of Newburyport, MA last winter. Still not sure if it is going to be a Hallmark or Lifetime pickup or something else. Based on title I am leaning towards Hallmark.

    A Ring for Christmas (2019) - IMDb

    Judging by the cast, which is entirely unknown to me, it’s not Hallmark. I’d suspect Lifetime, Netflix, or even Amazon.

    I thought I was being clever by setting up manual recordings for the Premiere times. I thought I'd play it safe and pad them by 1 min. Turns out a couple of the movies this weekend have a run time of 2 hrs 3 min. So beware if you set manual recordings. I re-padded mine by 5 minutes.

    Thanks for the tip -- I did the same thing of setting up manual recordings. I just re-padded them.
