| Saturday nights can't get here fast enough!
I am officially a When Calls the Heart addict! I can't get enough. I watch nearly everything on the Hallmark Channel, so last fall when they showed the movie that starred Stephen Amell and Maggie Grace I, of course, watched it & fell in love! I then got all of the books by Janette Oke & read them practically without putting them down! (Yes, I do work & it really interfered! LOL) I eagerly anticipated the series as they advertised it for what seemed like forever. This is a series that has struck a chord in my heart that's long been unfulfilled. I have always been a fan of Little House on the Prairie, The Walton's and the Love Comes Softly series. I wish I lived in those times when life was much more simple and people really did love their neighbor. This new series, When Calls the Heart, is what I've been wanting for a long time - good family programming that I don't have to censor or watch it when others aren't around because I'm ashamed of it's content. This is a time when men were chivalrous, women were strong and children did as they were told out of respect for their elders. It's such a nice change from what we see on other programs that are on right now. I'm praying that Hallmark & other channels realize that there are people out there longing for this kind of programming. I'll be so heartbroken if this doesn't get a second season. So, for now, I'm loving me some clean romance between the pretty schoolteacher Elizabeth & the handsome gentleman, Jack. Love that smile & the red Mountie jacket! Loving Lori Laughlin too - she's always been great!

Did You Know?


In March 2019, Lori Loughlin (Abigail Stanton) was indicted for bribing admissions officials so her children could be admitted to the University of Southern California. Hallmark announced on March 14, 2019 it was no longer working with Loughlin and had stopped development of any productions involving her. This caused a delay for When Calls the Heart: Heart of a Mountie (2019), which had been slated to air on 3/17/19 as Hallmark assessed what to do with the role. Loughlin, a U.S. resident, was specifically allowed by the Judge to keep her passport to travel to Canada to continue working with Hallmark on this show, but Hallmark terminated her. The agreement with the Judge expires in December after which Loughlin will have to surrender her passport. However, there is no public word on whether that has been modified since Hallmark took action.

In April 2019, the federal government added money laundering charges after Loughlin and her husband did not plead guilty to the original charge after others charged in the case took did so. In order to edit out appearances of Loughlin's character Abigail, Hallmark did considerable editing for the remainder of Season 6, which ended up reducing the show count by one. It has not been determined if the character will be recast or written out.


The town water tank has no pipes leading to it, which may explain why Abigail's Cafe requires a hand pump in the kitchen. Additionally, there are many references to telegrams coming into or sent from the town, and there are electric lights everywhere, yet there are no telegraph poles anywhere in the town.
