Goofs

There are multiple episodes that mention making and eating spaghetti (Abigail and Cody have a weekly spaghetti night). But spaghetti didn't make it to North America until around when the series is set and was highly unlikely to have made it to western frontier towns already. See more »

I am in love with Hallmark series
7 March 2014 | by ypuskinsanSee all my reviews

Last year Hallmark released a very good series, CEDAR'S COVE. And i felt in love with the series. Though many of the TV junkies might not enjoy it and called it a clichés, it was a great series for me. So that's how my affair with Hallmark began.

After that i became obsessed with finding out about every movies and series from hallmark. And i was mostly disappointed with most of it's previous shows but some TV movies were just as sweet and memorable like "Love enduring" series.

Then at the end of last year they released another TV movie "When calls the heart" starring Stephen Amell and my affair with hallmark again took it's passionate course after our lover's spat. It was like a make up sex. HAHAHAHAHAHA....! The movie was great, with it's well scripted humor it made me laugh and i enjoyed every moment of the movie.

And this relation began to grow when hallmark announced the movie has a follow up series premiering this year. Many of the viewers will say and i agree that this series might be full of clichés and chick-full romance but i don't care because i am romantic at heart. So any fan of the genre will love this series. It has all the elements of a great contemporary romance comedy.

With a great cast and with sweet and humorous script and with many beautiful and breathtaking Canadian Valley scenery, it has already captured my heart with it's pilot episode and hope this show to continue for a while at least up to 4 or 5 seasons.
