    I would listen to MK talk about almost anything. Almost. Hallmark Channel movies… can’t do it. 

    Maybe I’ll tune in if there’s an episode that reviews Die Hard. (What? The description says they’re doing Holiday movies.)

    MK has an entire series of these shows planned. We have another one coming later this week (I won’t spoil the movie or the guest).

    Anyone have a copy of that Hallmark Christmas Trope checklist? That’s brilliant, right there.

    I love this. It was worth it just for the sink hole discussion. And of course I loved Christmas as Pemberley Manor because it had some connection to Jane Austen and Pride and Prejudice. Perhaps not one of the best but who cares. Maybe Hallmark will do a costume one if they can get some left over costumes from the BBC cheap?

     Not quite sure I saw more than part of this, but it wasn’t the modernized Pride and Prejudice I was expecting. In fact, I’m not sure it isn’t more than a screenplay they already had in the drawer, with names from Jane Austen stuck on later.
