Mom and I watch When Calls the Heart on CBC, which is a super cheesy, but cute show (hot frontier mounties!) that we enjoy because this trend toward gritty/violent/dark television really isn't our jam. Despite it being a joint American/Canadian production, they've shown, I think five seasons in the States, but only two here. Season 3 started here last night.

Except, oh, by the way, there was a two-hour special that aired at Christmas of 2015 in the States and CBC either couldn't it show here or decided not to, for some reason. So that cliffhanger at the end of Season 2? Resolved in the special. New backstory for existing characters? Brought in during the special. New characters extremely relevant to the current season? Brought in during the special. This was covered in a brief 'previously on' at the start of the episode where Mom and I looked at each other and went 'I don't remember that'.

At first, we thought maybe we'd missed an episode, but I looked on the CBC website and they have everything up to stream, but nothing we hadn't seen. So I checked Wiki and discovered there'd been a special. Then I looked on Netflix, because it's up there, but they didn't have it either. Nor does iTunes. We managed to hunt down a very detailed recap from a fansite to fill in our missing knowledge and there were clips available elsewhere, so we got through well enough, but geez, CBC.

It's possible they aired it as a special at some point and we missed it, but the fact that the three legal resources I looked at didn't have it suggests that they didn't.

Of course, in the grand scheme of the world, this isn't important, but it is annoying, especially for a girl who just wants happy television as she recovers from six months of feeling like total crap and a previous year of feeling like semi-crap.

Thankfully MST3K on Netflix has been proving to be extremely enjoyable for a frazzled brain. :-D
