Yes, this Sunday -- for the 4th Sunday in a row -- will see the premiere of a brand new episode of Heartland.
[Click on for photos and more info about this upcoming episode]
For the sixth season of Heartland, CBC will be airing 18 episodes of the show. And those 18 episodes are going to be spread out over the next few months, which means there will be Sundays where there will be no new episode.
But not this Sunday!
No, this Sunday has a brand new episode airing across Canada at 7:00pm (7:30pm in Newfoundland). Written by Leila Basen and directed by Dean Bennett, it's titled, "The Natural."
In the episode, Amy tries to help Mallory (YES, she is back!!!) realize her dream of being a show jumper but discovers that it is Georgie who has the natural talent.
Also in this episode, Tim's newest moneymaking scheme has him trying to convince Jack to be his partner in the purchase of a bison bull. And Tim winds up on a trail ride with the visiting Miranda, a ride that could totally change their family dynamic.
Meanwhile, Amy can't help but be a little jealous of the time Ty spends studying with Cassandra. And Lou? She's struggling with the idea of leaving Katie when she travels to New York to attend a career boosting seminar.
So once again there is a lot going on (isn't there always?) and once you've seen it I trust you'll come back to this page and type in your comments. In fact, I insist on it because everyone, from the cast and crew to the CBC, enjoy reading all your thoughts and opinions, your bouquets and your barbs, and in general your feelings on how Heartland's sixth season is unfolding.
Remember, the theme is "A new beginning," and indeed there are storms brewing as well as great things ahead.
Now, I have a couple of past items I wish to touch upon, including the last chance this season for someone to bid on a family visit to the Heartland set.
Production has donated the visit to watch filming, along with the DVDs for Seasons 1 through 5 and an autographed poster from the series, to the Millarville Community School, which is not far from where the Ranch set of Heartland is located.
Bidding started on the auction 10 days ago, and will close at 10:00pm ET (That's 8:00pm in Alberta and 7:00pm in BC) TONIGHT! Yes, tonight. Not a lot of time to sit around and debate the issue, so if you are interested and would like to see money go to a good cause check it out, at www.auctionjam.com/millarvillecommunityschool.
And I wish to remind everyone that we currently have a Season 5 DVD Giveaway Contest happening. Three winners will receive the DVDs for Season 5 of Heartland, which is now available from eOne Films, and one of those three winners will become the grand prize winner, receiving Seasons 1, 2, 3, and 4 on DVD, A Heartland Christmas DVD, a Season 5 Poster signed by the cast and a 2013 Heartland wall calendar. Nice huh?
The contest closes Monday, October 8 and there is no cost. Just click on the link right here and you'll be off to the races.
So that's all I have for now, other that to remind you one last time to tune in to CBC Television this Sunday for "The Natural," another new Heartland episode for everyone in Canada to watch!
Enjoy your weekend. I am certainly hoping to.
