    Thank you for this answer. My wife loves these movies-She is an introvert and I think for her they help her decompress with the added benefit of driving me from the room! Whether I want to or not, I am intimately familiar with these movies, she watches them no matter how often they are repeated. (Christmas movies are repeated of Christmas in July!) The cats are often feature actors a few years past their peak, but talented. The production values were strong- But I just wanted to understand why the writing always had to be so bad, so cookie cutter. Why couldn’t these movies be a place where young writers and directors get their start? I may not like the answer, but at least I understand it now.

  2. No, no Hallmark/Lifetime movies Actually Do suck. Horribly. That shits worse than watching baby seals clubbed to death. Just sayin’

    She spelled it out perfectly. And don’t forget, for every tv movie someone says ‘sucks’, another person loves. It’s all art.
