We love movie night in our house. We often have two different types of movie nights however - one for animated kid movies for Ash and Garrett to enjoy and then we also have a movie night with Alyssa that involves a movie that doesn't have animated animals. When choosing movies to watch with Alyssa (who is 16) we always try to be mindful to how much adult themes the movie may have as she is easily embarrassed by any sexual overtones the movie selection might have. Because of this, when we were recently given the opportunity to review When Calls the Heart, Heart of the Family on DVD from FishFlix.com, we were pretty excited since we were very familiar with the show and knew it was something Alyssa would enjoy watching.

About When Calls the Heart
|Abigail (Lor Loughlin), Elizabeth (Erin Krakow) and Jack (Daniel Lissing)|
Last year, Alyssa and I both became familiar with the series and fell in love with the characters. This particular DVD that we reviewed was When Calls the Heart, Heart of the Family. This particular DVD is the 2 hour special that aired on Hallmark during Season 2, which I had already watched previously on Hallmark but that Alyssa had not seen yet. The story for this episode that Elizabeth has returned to Hope Valley after an extended visit with her family and volunteers to watch a neighbor's two children and his homestead while he goes to help his brother. Elizabeth, being a city girl who is somewhat domestically challenged, doesn't have the first clue as to what is involved in running a homestead and some hilarious moments ensue. Luckily, Mountie hero Jack shows up to help. This episode also focuses on the strained relationship between Abigail and Bill Avery, another Mountie who is in town investigating a counterfeit operation.

While I wouldn't recommend this particular DVD for anyone unfamiliar with the show, FishFlix.com does sell both the full 12 episode Series 1 and Series 2 DVD sets on their webpage. With a current pricetag of only 10 dollars for the 3 DVD Volume 1 6 episode set, I would highly recommend anyone who's interested in the show to pick up this steal.
