After a decidedly rough patch, the Hallmark Hall of Fame gets a bit of its mojo back in time for Mother’s Day with “In My Dreams,” a magical-realist-tinged romance pairing Katharine McPhee (no, she doesn’t sing) with “Under the Dome’s” Mike Vogel. As is often the case with the brand, the slight premise requires a bit of goodwill to sustain things through to the well-telegraphed ending, but the central duo is so dreamy and the idea so unabashedly romantic it should put those who bother to watch — a challenge since the franchise landed on ABC — in a card-buying mood.
It doesn’t hurt that McPhee and Vogel look like prototypes for the top of a wedding cake, although writers Teena Booth and Suzette Couture, along with director Kenny Leon, manage to scatter enough hurdles to make them helpfully vulnerable.
Vogel’s Nick is a serial one-and-done dater »
