Anyone else love the hallmark channel movies??

Hey I know it stinks, but they are the only channel that gets me through this shit, the post election shit. I used to watch ALL the political shows on CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, and yes, the dabble in faux noise. NOT ANYMORE..... I'm done with them. It Christmas time on the Love channel. I feel so much more relaxed....calm, together, at peace.

1. I'll watch it occasionally

But typically I'll go with Poirot or Inspector Morse

But you're right-- anything that eases the shock/pain/sorrow and changes our focus-- even if for just a little while-- is a blessing

2. Embarrassed to say yes

I watch them all weekend long. I usually know the ending within the first 10 minutes, but that doesn't stop me. Just good ol' B movie schmaltz. The non-stop news isn't good for my health.

3. Yes,

they keep me sane. Calm, comforting, and safe. I also watch Miss Marple, Hercule Poirot, Midsommer Murders. Also, am rediscovering books -- anything but watching the Trump travesty.

4. I totally love the...

...sappy, happy ending Hallmark Christmas movies. I have several recorded. A Very Merry Mixup is one of my favorites (it's on right now) and more recently A Crown For Christmas, with. Danica McKellar and Rupert Penry-Jones. I particularly enjoy the ballroom scene, and the scene near the conclusion when King Maximilian shoes up on horseback to declare his love for "a girl from Brooklyn."

I also really like the first movie in the Love Comes Softly series.

5. My 86 year old mother loves the Hallmark and the Hallmark Movie Channels............

the only author she likes is Debbie Macomber, ever since Hallmark had the Cedar Cove Series.

10. My wife loves them and to be honest some aren't too bad

Sometimes I will watch one off the recorder so I can zip through commercials.
Sometimes, I think we all need a little fantasy
