Must Watch Thursday ... Ok a Whole bunch of TV (is a LONG list)

It's been a while since I've posted some must watch stuff, so here is all the TV that is a must add to your DVR.

As I said last year this has become one of my all time favorite shows (Thank you Rick for watching 90210 and leaving it on this channel). This show has evolved and added new characters and a new dimension to her time travel back in time to fix her regrets.

Erica Strange is 32 years old, perpetually single, and stuck in a series of dead-end jobs. But she's been given an amazing gift: the opportunity to relive regrets from her past, enabling her to change the present. Guided by the mysterious Dr. Tom, she weaves through present and past, realizing she needs to take control of her own destiny.
For you who are like me and don't have paid channels it's great when our shows come to DVD or even better regular channels. Check out E for all the episodes you missed.

Four beautiful female New Yorkers gossip about their sex-lives (or lack thereof) and find new ways to deal with being a woman in the 90's.
I've watched a few episodes it's getting better the first one was just ok. Melissa Peterman played such a great role on Reba that I think you're expecting that she'll be the same. She's funny in this but some of the jokes fall a little short. I'll give it a few more tries before kicking it off my DVR list :).
First off must say how much we miss Rue McClanahan and she is just too cute in this movie. Sometimes you can go back home and stay. What a cute movie that as always you know what will happen but as I say you'll enjoy it.

A woman returns home to her rural hometown after many years to find mysteries of her past, old loves, and promising new beginnings. Stars Lisa Hartman-Black, Rue McClanahan and Dale Midkiff.
I got married in my parents backyard so this of course caught my eye and I just had to watch it. My parents even have a feud with a neighbor it must be the thing to do. You will laugh and the happy ending is of course what you will think will happen but you love it.

Bride-to-be Kim Tyler is about to find out that getting to the altar is a long journey, even when it's in her own backyard. Kim grew up loving her next-door neighbor, Evan Slauson. Now she's all set to have the wedding of her dreams to stable Jeffrey in her parents' backyard, but her ex-husband, and first love -- whose parents still live next door -- keeps popping up causing her to seriously question her big plans. Stars Alicia Witt, Frances Fisher and Markie Post.
Yet another stumble upon movie that was a great one about a single mom who has a child that is sick a lot making it hard for her to keep a job down. She becomes a school project for a Rich boy who never thought of anyone but himself.

Preppy and wealthy Whitt Sheffield (Justin Bruening) is in his last semester of law school at Morgan College when his radical-thinking professor, Victoria Corrales (Constance Marie), gives his class a very different kind of assignment: to act as a mentor and advocate for a young, single mother who needs help finding-and keeping-a job. Whitt, whose snooty father, Benjamin (Eric Roberts), wants Whitt to follow him into corporate law, is insulted by the low-class assignment, especially after he meets Kylie Burch (Jodi Lyn O'Keefe), the woman he has to help. Given their extreme opposite backgrounds, Kylie and Whitt clash at first, and it looks like Whitt will never be able to help her if he doesn't understand her situation.
Another one I stumbled across this movie and just had to watch it. Shannen has been my girl since Little House on the Prairie and she's had her ups and downs but I've always liked her acting (I guess it's her other time that she has problems with). What would you do if you were left a farm and had to keep up the legacy?

Radio DJ Emma Silver (Shannen Doherty) leads a chic city life in Seattle until she finds out her beloved grandfather has died. Traveling to his farm in quaint Valleyville, Washington to take care of the details, she is stunned to learn her grandfather has left her his farm, along with a sizable amount of debt. To keep the bank from foreclosing, Emma must find a way to raise the money, or face seeing her grandfather’s precious land end up as a parking lot. Following her grandfather’s famed legacy, Emma decides to enter Valleyville’s annual pumpkin growing contest with his prized seeds and grow the world-record biggest gourd. If she can win the grand prize of $50,000, she can save the farm.

Jane Seymour plays the spunky Prudence kind of like a Martha Stewart with a extra nice spunk. This movie made you laugh so much and you just have to love the cast. Plus seeing Jane and her daughter together was super cute.

In this sequel to "Dear Prudence," Prudence MacIntyre is asked to make changes to her successful television show when the network sends in new producers to revamp her image. To her surprise, one of the producers is an old flame, and the other is a seedy womanizer who enchants Prudence's daughter.
Can a frog really turn into a prince if kissed? Well we dive into that with this super cute movie that makes you just love love the characters and the plot that unfolds infront of you. And of course Kellie Martin is a favorite from my all time favorite show Life Goes On (If you haven't seen that show you so missed out!)

Percy is a prince engaged to a woman he doesn't love. When he gets amnesia and is taken in by Zoe, a young girl who loves romantic fairytales, Zoe convinces him that he is frog-turned-prince that she rescued. Percy becomes a nanny to Zoe, and as he develops a friendship with her and falls in love with her mother Gwen, discovering that love is the magic ingredient needed to make any relationship special.
Oh goodness I don't know what I would be doing if I ever had to go threw what this poor lady had to endure. Of course a true story that will ripe your heart out. We all would go to the ends of the earth for our child and God sent this woman an angel in Terry O'Quinn's character that may not have been on board in the beginning but was a big help in the end.

“Taken From Me: The Tiffany Rubin Story” is based on a dramatic true story of Tiffany Rubin’s (Taraji P. Henson) daring 2008 rescue of her seven-year-old son, Kobe, after he was abducted by his biological father and taken from his home in Queens, New York, all the way to Seoul, South Korea. At the urging of her mother Belzora (Beverly Todd), Tiffany sought the counsel of Mark Miller (Terry O’Quinn) and his charitable organization, The American Association for Lost Children. With Mark’s help, Tiffany was able to travel to Korea to execute a high-stakes plan to bring her son home.
I don't believe I saw the Note I but I happen to leave my tv on Hallmark and caught this movie and really enjoyed it. It is so like life we make choices in our life and sometimes we can right them sometimes we just learn from them. A very touching movie and I'll be on the look out for the first one.

Having been reunited with Christine, the daughter she gave up for adoption 18 years earlier, Peyton MacGruder (Francis) is still learning the ropes of parenting. She’s also busy writing her “Heart Healer” column, as well as managing a relationship with coworker and boyfriend King Danville (McGinley). But when King asks Peyton to marry him, she’s too afraid to take a chance at a life she deserves. A note to Peyton from a loyal reader of her column leads to a new friendship, one that will teach Peyton that when it comes to making decisions, there’s a time to be cautious and a time to follow your heart.
Ok first off anything with Betty White I'm so on it!!! Betty is an amazing actress and only touched on it with Rose (and for us who love her as Sue Ann in The Mary Tyler Moore show) she's the best. Now Jennifer Love Hewitt was not my fav back in the party of 5 days but then she was the Ghost Whisper and won my heart over. This movie is just so touching! It has a happy ending but not the mushy TV kind we're so use to it has the ending that real life would deal us. A great nod to the wonderful people who serve our country!

During World War II, Navy Lt. Neil Thomas bids Caroline, his pregnant young wife, farewell at Union Station. Before their son is born, Neil’s plane goes down in the Pacific and he’s declared MIA.

Caroline is devastated, but her love never dies. And for the next 65 years, Caroline (Betty White) returns to Union Station on the anniversary of her loss to salute his memory. When a TV journalist (Jennifer Love Hewitt) learns of the touching story, she sets out to investigate what happened to Neil 65 years earlier. Caroline’s grandson encourages Caroline to cooperate, and soon the reporter and young man fall in love.
We all do it make a list of things we want in life, in the people around us and just life in general. People don't always live up to our "must have list", but you may never know what is right around the corner and what you could be missing. :)

Sarah Fisher, an overly organized, by-the-numbers kind of woman, makes a "wish list" of all the qualities and traits her future husband should have. After finding the perfect man, she falls for a guy who meets none of her criteria and discovers that life and love don't always work out according to the master plan. Stars Jennifer Esposito and David Sutcliffe.
For love of Wine and well love ... LOL :). And well heck you have Elliot Gould who is super funny! And heck with a celebrity chief that cute I'd fall for him too! You know what would happen but it was a good movie.

Johnetta ‘Johnny’ Prentice (Julie Benz), the CFO for a major corporation, has allowed her work to take over her life, quite similar to her business-obsessed boyfriend Christopher. Johnny’s company sends her to a conference in California wine country, where it will be up to her to seal the deal with an important investor. When her plans are suddenly up in the air, she meets world-famous chef Andrew Browning (Scott Elrod) and his adorable son and parents, Sophia (JoBeth Williams) and Paul (Elliott Gould), owners of a local winery. With an unexpectedly free schedule, Johnny explores a world outside her high-powered profession, and discovers a passion that isn’t just centered around earning a paycheck.
You know my love of Hallmark Channel, I stumbled across this movie that was very touching and for us dog lovers you'll love this movie. It had it's moments but overall a good movie.

After her mother's death, Lisa Rayborn (Natasha Henstridge) returns to her hometown and family farm. There she finds new purpose when she adopts a puppy at the local shelter and begins training the dog as a herder. When a group of children go missing, the dog will be tested in ways Lisa could never have imagined. Stars Natasha Henstridge and Harry Hamlin.
