Default Hallmark television series and TV films

First of all, I haven't selected a flag icon for this thread, as it will be about the North American and Australian DVD releases of Hallmark's various series of television films (Christmas, drama, murder mystery and romance). I can't see these getting Blu-ray releases by Hallmark (in North America) and Via Vision (in Australia), and at the moment it's getting slightly frustrating with how slow the more recent TV films are making their way to the UK (since the Christmas in July season finished on UK channel Movies 24 only one new murder mystery TV film (I like the murder mystery TV films the most) has premiered in the UK on normal TV channels (that I know of). It could be that Channel Five in the UK have the UK TV premiere rights to some of them (they showed the first three Crossword Mysteriess first).

Anyway, I know that these TV films have their critics (a few years ago, and with some critics here in the UK media, they had a reputation for being repetitive etc.). Speaking for myself, I find them a good alternative to the television series I watch. The murder mysteries are a good watch, and occasionly I don't guess who the culprit is. They are like a reliably, comfortable pair of slippers with an occasional slight edge (there is some threat, but nothing unpleasant (don't think I've described it well, but that's how I see it).

You're welcome. I know it's not a full list of the titles they've released (there are loads of Hallmark Christmas television film DVD volumes).

I'm not sure if it's premiered on Hallmark in the States yet, but there is a one-off (not the first in a new series) murder mystery TV film called Redemption in Cherry Springs.

Have recorded from yesterday, Sand Dollar Cove (stars Chad Michael Murray, who has appeared in at least one other Hallmark TV film, which also starred Torrey DeVitto from Chicago Med, called Write Before Christmas). It premiered on Movies 24 yesterday (Sunday) afternoon.

I believe Redemption in Cherry Springs aired in the US this past weekend (maybe the weekend before). Decent telemovie, I'm surprised that RiCS is just a one-off as it seems primed to be the start of a series.

The Aurora Teagarden mysteries are among the stronger mystery movie offerings. The site shows a 6 movie collection on DVD released this past February in the US, I think it's the first 6 telefilms:

Aurora Teagarden: 6-Movie Collection: (A Bone to Pick / Real Murders / Three Bedrooms, One Corpse / The Julius House / Dead Over Heels / A Bundle of Trouble)

Watched this week, a one-off Hallmark TV film called Sand Dollar Cove, which premiered on Hallmark in the States earlier this year around June-time (wouldn't mind seeing a follow-up, as it had a Chesapeake Shores vibe to it). The cast included Chad Michael Murray and an actress who I recognised from a short-lived series called Hellcats, Aly Michalka.

Pulp Hero, I'll check and see if further Aurora Teagarden Mysteries have had physical media releases (I think there have been). The most recent two new entries in the series haven't yet premiered on television over here (Til Death Do Us Part and Honeymoon, Honeymurder).

Had hoped Hallmark or Via Vision would do a boxset containing the four (to date) Christmas in Evergreen television films. Have seen the first two in the listings a few times but have not watched them yet.

Don't know about Australia, but Hallmark have released each of the four Christmas in Evergreen television films separately in the States (Christmas in Evergreen, Letters to Santa, Tidings of Joy and Bells Are Ringing).

Just double-checked the Via Vision section of your posts above Chedwiggen, and it's not there (was checking Via Vision's website for another television title, and saw that being released in Australia in mid-November is Chronicle Mysteries Collection Two. It has the two most recent TV films in the series, The Deep End and Helped to Death).

There's a lot missing in the Via Vision section because they're not in the database here and I'm not quite sure how to add them but there's a section on here where people seem to help out so I'll see if anyone can help me out there in a bit.

The Hallmark murder mystery TV films which (as far as I'm aware) are still to premiere over here (listed in the order they premiered in the States on Hallmark, from earliest to most recent):

A Fatal Romance: Matchmaker Mysteries II (April last year)
Crossword Mysteries IV: Terminal Descent (February this year)
Crossword Mysteries V: Riddle Me Dead (April this year)
Matchmaker Mysteries III: The Art of the Kill (April this year)
Morning Show Mysteries VI: Murder Ever After (May this year)
Till Death Do Us Part: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery XVI (June this year)
Mystery 101: Deadly History (the seventh in the series. Aired at the start of August this year)
Sweet Revenge: A Hannah Svensen Mystery (early August this year) (*)
Honeymoon, Honeymurder: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery XVII (the second half of August this year)
Redemption in Cherry Springs (one-off TV film. Aired in September this year).

(*) - this was the sixth TV film in the Murder She Baked series (for this entry in the series, the series' name was changed from Murder She Baked to A Hannah Svensen Mystery. Also, this was the first new entry in the series for four years).

There's no rush. I saw that you had edited a post of yours further up this page today, and had only just seen the second Chronicle Mysteries collection from Via Vision on it's website today. Not a criticism of your contributions. Simply saw a title I couldn't see above.

Hello Chedwiggen, you're submitting all these as Blu-rays and they are DVDs, please add them to the DVD database by going to any DVD entry and clicking Add DVD, please


Thank you.

I'll be doing a lot of the ones you submitted as BDs in a short while after I reject them as BDs ok?
