Goofs

The town water tank has no pipes leading to it, which may explain why Abigail's Cafe requires a hand pump in the kitchen. Additionally, there are many references to telegrams coming into or sent from the town, and there are electric lights everywhere, yet there are no telegraph poles anywhere in the town. See more »

Wonderful!! We love watch this as a family.
22 March 2014 | by suzyq1006See all my reviews

This is a wonderful show for the whole family. I watch together with a 10 year old and 13 year old. They love it! We can't wait each week to see what will happen next. Wonderful writing.. great acting...We love all the characters. How cool to make an episode dealing with Dyslexia. My child was diagnosed a year ago and thought that was great to see Miss Thatcher helping her student! We love Jack !! We love Abigail and all the cast. Great costumes and scenery. My daughters (10yrs) favorite scene was when Elizabeth called Jack her guinea pig!! My 13 year old loves it when Jack takes care of the bad guy. Mine is any time Jack walks into the scene. :) Thank you! Please continue with more seasons!
