I know Maggie Lawson from Psych so seeing her turn up in a couple of these feels very strange. Especially since it’s the kind of story that Psych would have taken the piss out of

"Christmas in the Outskirts of Vancouver" just didn't have the same ring to it.

None of these are shining beacons of originality, and to some extent that's even okay, but I think that might be the most mad-libsy synopsis yet

Well, this trash isn't funny anymore. It's Netflix and Hulu trash for me next year, and I canceled my Hallmark subscription early.

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/12/13/styl ... -ios-share
The Hallmark Channel pulled four TV ads featuring brides kissing each other on Thursday after a targeted campaign by a conservative group.

Asked to explain why the ads had been rejected, an employee of Hallmark’s parent company said the channel did not accept ads “that are deemed controversial,” according to an email exchange shared with The New York Times. A spokesman for Hallmark said the women’s “public displays of affection” violated the channel’s policies, but he declined to comment on why a nearly identical ad featuring a bride and groom kissing was not rejected.

The series of six ads, for the wedding planning website Zola, first appeared on the Hallmark Channel on Dec. 2. The ads, which feature several configurations of couples, all offer variations on the same concept: While standing at the altar, couples ponder whether guests would have arrived on time and bought them better gifts if only they had created a custom wedding website with Zola.


I didn't even finish tonight's movie, which was the one with the Jewish boyfriend. He was goofy and tried to pretend to know about Christmas, but accidentally said things like "mazel tov!" because he just can't help himself!

Gee, it looks like the Hallmark Channel accepted those ads just fine until homophobes shat themselves! And in this case it doesn't even look like it's a case of a company doing it for fear of Russian or Chinese retribution, but rather the dwindling demographic of Western homophobia.

Wonder if now they might actually do a same-sex Christmas film.

Probably just take one of their same bland scripts and change the couple.
