  1. I've been looking forward to A Boy Called Christmas since you first posted about it here. There seems to be a few good ones to look forward to this holiday season. I think I was also looking forward to the Brooke Shields one as well, but forgot all about that one so I'll have to remember to add it to my Netflix queue as soon as I see it pop up there.

  4. i dread to think what they'll come up in a revisionist take of The Waltons'saga, although for its time it was diverse, they had Black characters and it was quite daring.

    1. It remains to be seen. I find it weird that Ben Lawson plays the dad as I still considered him a very young and hot hunk LOL Guess we're getting old, I could probably play someone's dad too even though I think I'm a still growing kid LOL

  7. Ugh, there are so many good ones here that I can’t pick my favorite! I want to watch them all, but I hope The Claus Family isn’t super sad. I vote for cheesy Xmas movies and tv shows all year long. :)

    1. Claus family is actually a Dutch movie, I guess it was so good that they are now airing it on global Netflix too. Did not they say Lifetime will start with Christmas movies from September?

      Delete
    2. Lifetime always starts them early. Hallmark, too. I watch cheesy Christmas movies year round also. I'll be sitting on a beach with my ipad watching Christmas movies LOL.

    3. They sell romance so well. I really like casting in their movies, they always have the best of hunks.
