In my opinion:
I loved episode 7-Second Chances and wished I had the complete first series. This was the third episode I've watched and it gets better and better. 
Things are heating up between Elizabeth and Jack's relationship. I loved their characters and the friendship they are developing with one another. I love all of the characters and feel that the casting director chose the perfect people. It is also fun to see Lori Loughlin (Full House) play a grown mother named Abigail.
 Each episode is about 85 minutes and there are no commercials. It is absolutely the best TV series I've watched in a long time. It is clean and perfect for any family to watch together. I loved the characters and the real life challenges that the people faced. It is a different time period but the challenges are pretty similar to our trials. Overall, I am impressed with each episode that I watch and look forward to the next one. I defintiely recommend this TV Series-When Calls the Heart.
