I have written about the television series, When Calls the Heart, numerous times on my site. It airs on the Hallmark Channel.
Just released is the DVD, When Calls the Heart: It Begins With Heart. This DVD opens Season 3 of the series.
A lot of changes are happening in Hope Valley.
Elizabeth (Erin Krakow) is trying to win over Jack’s (Daniel Lissing) dog Rip. She feels that if she can win over the dog he will no longer try and come in between her and Jack.
Abigail (Lori Loughlin) tries to find out who is stealing food from her kitchen. What she find is a set of orphan children in need of a home.
Bill (Jack Wagner) still needs to convince Jack that he is innocent of the counterfeiting ring.
Rosemary (Pascale Hutton) is trying to win a contest with the San Francisco Herald.
New arrivals in town end up causing problems for Pastor Frank (Mark Humphrey) as he is trying to win the heart of Abigail.
These are not necessarily new story lines, but rather a continuation of stories/plots that have already played out on the series. If you watch the series regularly then you will be familiar with these story lines, so no further explanation is needed (plus I wouldn’t want to give away too much detail and spoilers).
This DVD is more so for people familiar with the series. As a “newbie” to When Calls the Heart you could watch this, and then continue watching the current season on television, but you might be a little lost without knowing the background of each character and story line.
This is a Hallmark Channel series, which means is suitable for the whole family – although younger children might not “get” the more complex relationships. This is a sweet series filled with likable characters, lovely period clothing and breathtaking scenery. It’s wholesome entertainment and one of the Hallmark Channels most popular series. There are even groups dedicated to the series. I know some of them are called “Hearties.”
The DVD comes with bonus feature with behind the scenes interviews. I personally enjoy behind the scenes features and cast/crew interviews because I feel like it gives you a better appreciation for the show/movie when you learn about what went on to bring it to television and/or the big screen.
Look for When Calls the Heart: It Begins With Heart where ever DVDs are sold.
