[April 2016] What I'm Watching

"When Calls the Heart tells the story of Elizabeth Thatcher, a young teacher accustomed to her high-society life. She receives her first classroom assignment in Coal Valley, a small coal-mining town in Western Canada. There, life is simple—but often fraught with challenges. Elizabeth charms most everyone in Coal Valley, except Royal North West Mounted Police Constable Jack Thornton. He believes Thatcher’s wealthy father has doomed the lawman's career by insisting he be assigned in town to protect the shipping magnate’s daughter.  Living in this 1910 coal town, Elizabeth must learn the ways of the Canadian frontier movement if she wishes to thrive in the rural west on her own." -- From Wikipedia

Will you like it?
I was surprised at how much I liked this period dramedy.  There are a lot of funny parts (like when Elizabeth burns down the teacher's cottage) interspersed with the more serious parts of the show.  Overall, if you're a fan of Downton Abbey, I would wholeheartedly recommend this show for you.

News about the show:

  • Season 3 is currently airing on the Hallmark channel!
