Review: Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove

Quiet, Slow and Charming Andie MacDowell Drama
Los Angeles Times

It's pointless to deny that Cedar Cove (Saturday - Hallmark Channel, 8pm) has a very high "paint-drying" factor, but it's very pretty paint, professionally applied. [Teryl] Rothery is particularly good and MacDowell is working very much within her comfort zone here, radiant and resonant.

And amid all the noise and haste of modern television, there is something to be said for going placidly. While IFC and Sundance, History and soon even Discovery duke it out with gritty "prestige" hopefuls, Hallmark remains true to its brand, offering a frank and unapologetic alternative.
