Meredith1 Stars Out Of 5I don't recall L.M. Montgomery using cuss words in her writing.August 19, 2016MeredithQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1How I looked forward to using this in my classroom as a fun way for students to practice identifying plot, character development, etc. However, I was EXCEPTIONALLY DISAPPOINTED. It is not possible for me to use any of the episodes due to the cussing, spiritism/mysticism, haunting theme of death and overall dark feeling. While the main character, Emily, has moments of courage and perseverance, more prominent are her frequent shamelessly disrespectful tyrades and tantrums, which she usually gets away with.
I watched all of Season 1 hoping to find at least one redeeming episode, but none of them are free of the negative factors previously mentioned.
It is my fault though, that I did not read the reviews but naively assumed since it was based on L.M. Montgomery's writings, it would be parallel to the quality of the Anne of Green Gables productions. Echoing the comment of another reviewer I'm very surprised that CBD sells this series!
MomsGender: female1 Stars Out Of 5Very DisappointedJuly 10, 2012MomsGender: femaleI ordered this DVD set expecting an Anne-of-Green Gables level of acting, faithfulness to the books, something for my kiddos to watch-- ended up putting it away after first episode and will be getting rid of it. NOT like the books. Adds spiritism, incense, strange not-fitting-in scenes, weird! and an overall "dark" atmosphere, Emily & family were unlike the book, it was just plain old "weird" . Do NOT recommend.
Terry Campbell1 Stars Out Of 5Very surprised CBD sells this series!December 26, 2011Terry CampbellQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1Such a disappointment. We love Anne of Green Gables but this is Not the same type of family entertainment. We watched the first 15 minutes and decided to stop..beating and ridiculing an Indian child....ghosts...terrible. Don't waste your money.

kerri dill1 Stars Out Of 5February 5, 2010kerri dillI bought this item after reading the description and really enjoying the Anne books and movies by the same author. I was very disappointed with the serious dark side of this series. I hoped to be able to watch it with my children but couldn't for several reasons. Several episodes have bad language and refererences to false religious beliefs. These beliefs are portrayed as helpful while the Bible, church and the Christian God are seen as religious and legalistic and snobbish to those who don't fit in. The theme that follows almost every episode is Emily's "second sight" which allows her to see and talk to the dead to help them with their unresolved issues. This is clearly forbidden by God in Deuteronomy 18:10-12.I hope that this review will help reveal the spiritual background of this series before you purchase it for your family. God bless!
