We almost felt like it was our duty to put Heartland in the number 1 place for best Jessica Amlee movies and shows. We don’t think the show needs an introduction but let’s remind you who Mallory was (you may have forgotten since she has been gone for almost 5 seasons). Heartland Mallory is a friend of the family who usually came and visited the ranch. She was hired regularly by Lou to babysit Katie. Her character leaves the ranch multiple times for various reasons, mostly because of her father’s music career. A cowboy in the series, Jake, is in love with her and in time she realizes that she also has feelings for him. They get married in Season 10.
Heartland is a pretty popular Canadian series that has an 8.4 score on IMDb. We recommend everyone to see this heartwarming drama about family, love, and friendship.
2. A Heartland Christmas
A Heartland Christmas was a special tv movie that was based on a Christmas day of the people of the Heartland ranch. While Amy and Ty go to the rescue of horses that are stranded by an avalanche in the mountains, Lou is stuck with Mallory who loves everything about Christmases.
The holiday special was watched by 1.4 million viewers on December 12, 2010. It currently has a 7.4 score on IMDb. The fact that the audience score is lower than the original series may be due to the fact that maybe people were expecting a more exciting or different direction from a one-time Christmas special but it wasn’t really different from the usual episodes of the series.
