Last summer Hallmark had a new show, Chesapeake Shores, that my sisters, Mom, and I watched. I would recommend it for teens and up since there is a lot of family conflict and two divorced couples. Chesapeake Shores was renewed for a second season that will air late summer 2017. Season one ended on a huge cliffhanger, so I am looking forward to see what happens next. :)

Hey, my mom and sister did that too. We are now watching season 2 and I am enjoying it so much.
Hey, Eustace! I love Chesapeake Shores, all of the sibling stuff is so awesome. I was surprised that season 2 actually picked up right where season 1 ended.

One thing that has me confused with the show is Kevin, how did he go from active duty Army to former Army without returning to his duty station for one or two episodes.

I saw series 4 of Sherlock recently, so I'm all caught up on that show. I'll probably keep watching it if they keep making it, but it really isn't nearly as good as the show itself seems to think it is.

IMO, Elementary is much better.

We were wondering how Kevin became completely fine just after a summer, especially when he fell out of a tree house, but, I guess that will never be answered either.

As much as I enjoy watching Hallmark, I hate the way they abandon plot points.

It seems like they are doing that with When Calls The Heart, sounds like Pastor Frank is not going to be in season 5 at all. But Julie (Elizabeth's sister) might be returning to the show after not even being mentioned for two full seasons.

Who else is following the Lord of the Rings news about Amazon buying the rights for a TV series?

Pre-lord of the rings. Is Silmarillion possible? They don't say that, but the rights were sold by the Tolkien Estate soooo... :-??

A Silmarillion show would be fascinating, but it says the show will "explore new storylines preceding J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Fellowship of the Ring" that sound like it will be an original story, which doesn't interest me, but who knows maybe it could be good.

Honestly I'm just glad it's not a re-adaptation of Lord of The Rings, which is what I thought this was at first, I have no desire to see that any time soon.

We don't have TV anymore, we just check out DVDs from the library or buy them if we like it. It was during the either season 3 or season 4 of Leverage when we got it shut off. Leverage was the last new show I liked. Well I like CSI Miami and Avatar the last Airbender too. I'm usually more into older shows, like Perry Mason, Beverly Hillbillies, and I recently got into The Avengers(the 60s show obviously, not the Marvel comic one). Oh Red Green is good too, and Diagnosis Murder and Murder She Wrote. My all-time favorite show would be Xena though. Yes, I am all over the place B-)

Hahaha Kalta, that's cool though. :D I'm not much of a TV person. I love Avatar: The Last Airbender as well, and Stargate SG-1 through season... 8 I think? For a while I enjoyed most of Food Network's not-so-reality tv shows. If the History and Science channels would show history and science, that's probably what I'd be into.

I just recently got done watching CNN's The Sixties, The Seventies, and The Eighties on Netflix. Heads up if you're into that sort of thing, there's an episode in the Seventies that has very graphic nudity. Caught me off guard because all the other episodes that have anything like that censored it. At least my kids weren't around. Anyways, I found them very interesting, but I can't talk about them too much here because they were heavily political.

Going back to the LotR TV discussion, if it turns out to be canon, I might be interested. If it's "fanfiction" then they've probably lost me. There are some stories that just shouldn't be messed with imho.
