Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove?

Did anyone watch this on the Hallmark Channel? It was on Saturday night, and is based on the Debbie Macomber book series.

Even though I really don't like Andie McDowell as an actress, I thought I'd give it a try, as I LOVED the books (a series of about 12 books).

I thought the TV show was AWFUL!!!!!!!!!! So bad, in fact, that I won't watch any more of the shows.

What did you think?

I'm just the opposite. Wasn't planning on watching but now I have to to see how bad it really is. LOL What the heck, there's nothing really good on T.V. anyway.

Well I watched it and I also did not like it. I too have read all the books in the series. I couldn't wait for the next one to come out. But this show wasn't what I thought it would be. I did like the person who played Jack but wasn't too sure about the actress who played Olivia. I felt that the actors who played the younger characters were just to young looking to me. I guess its just me. I wanted this show to be wonderful as the books were. I love Debbie Macomber. I buy everything she writes. Some are reissues which makes me angry. As I probably have the originals in my basement. Mary

I watched it as well. It was ok and I will give it another chance however if Andie McDowell doesn't stop giggling like a school girl (she's playing a judge for crying out loud!) I will stop watching it.

You're in luck, georgysmon, as it's being rebroadcast on Hallmark several times this week ;)

I thought it was just OK.

can't remember the other book 10-15 years ago that was soooo bad! it takes a really GOOD script writer to convert a book to a 2 hr movie...lets face it, they are mass producing these movies...lay you odds it was filmed in 6 weeks or less...often the authors have no say, but a healthy check!

I watched it, it was enjoyable but kinda draggy. I will watch it next week and see if it gets better. I just loved the scenery.

I have read all the books and I was looking forward to watching it, but somehow I just couldn't get interested in it.

I liked it but haven't read the books. I agree her giggling was a little annoying.
