Re: Hallmark Series “Ride”

Rodeos are animal abuse for fun and profit. The family deserves to lose their ranch and Hallmark should be ashamed for condoning rodeos and this family.

Re: Hallmark Series “Ride”

Haven't watched yet, however, I agree I have trouble with the rodeo theme.

 

So I'm not too excited about this new show on HM.

 

I did not like the ending of The Way Home....it did not resolve the missing boy IMHO.  Did I miss something?

 

Sorry, going off topic here.  Wondered if it's coming back for another season the way it ended.  confused... Cat Frustrated

I've not watched either of the last two series but I don't believe we will ever again see the likes of Cedar Cove or Chesapeake Shores.  

 

Those were two of the best series.  I especially loved Cedar Cove. I hated the way they just abruptly ended CC.  I don't know the reason but I felt it still had a way to go before it would have become stale.

 

Chesapeake Shores had a nice long run and I felt it was time to end it.  It ended on such a nice note.  

 

It makes me sad to see the way both of the Hallmark channels are going downhill. The other week-end I watched a marathon of the Garage Sales Mysteries and I couldn't help but compare how much better those mysteries from years ago were to the ones they are making now.  

 

The only two mysteries that I felt were somewhat decent, but not great, were the Curious Caterer series starring Nikki Deloach and Andrew Walker.  I think the first one was a little better than the second one.

 

I know some complained about Hallmark using the same actors in every movie but I have to say that most of them are head and shoulders above some of the more current actors they are using now.  It never bothered me seeing the same actors in different roles.  Most of them I enjoyed and was able to separate their characters from role to role.

Re: Hallmark Series “Ride”

I agree with you about the ending of the Way Home.  Why was she dressed in white as the beginning of the series showed and the storyline of the lost boy was never completed.  I felt I wasted my time watching it.  As for Ride, I did enjoy the first showing and will continue to watch.

Re: Hallmark Series “Ride”

As for The Way Home, they kept calling it the season finale, not the series finale, which implies they intend to bring it back, though I hope not. The promos for it alone were beyond annoying. If they do, I won't be watching.

I don't get it. If they wanted to do a western 'save the ranch' theme there was no need to go the rodeo route.

Watched the first episode last night and if they downplay the ridiculous and boring rodeo nonsense, the show might have potential. Some of the characters are interesting and the actors are reasonably good. There's a hint of mystery in there too, but the rodeo sequences go nowhere. Realizing the series has been filmed already, one can only hope they realized early on the interest factor has more to do with the family and the ranch than with Number Two Son as a 'star' bull rider.

Re: Hallmark Series “Ride”

Finally watched the first episode and I think that's the last one for me.

 

I don't like the story at all.  I can't even believe this is on the Hallmark Channel.

 

Big disappointment. Cat Sad

@kug  The left a few things open for the possibility of a renewal, I guess.  The little boy ran after the family dog to the pond.  The dog had a ball.  the ball was on the floor in one of the last "present" scenes in the season's final show.

 

Also, now that Kat was ready to be with Elliot, he needs time to "find himself".  I am thinking that maybe he will go jump in the pond and time travel back.  Maybe Andie McDowell will jump in the pond, too.  Who knows?  Perhaps Alice will go back and have her grandfather give her some of his music for her to perform......LOL   Just throwing some ideas out there.  Woman LOL

Fear not Brothers and Sisters! I have read THE BOOK..........we win!!!

@tends2dogs ... Oh gosh, thank you for the post about The Way Home!

 

I didn't even realize there's a book.  Guess I'll wait to see the series continue, if and when. Cat Very Happy
