Giant Cecily IS shocking. Her voice is too deep, her body too large, her hair too young. Her acting is fine, except that we are used to Harmony and this new gal is NOT the Cecily we grew up with.
My biggest issue with this episode is the bad acting by the kid who plays Louis. Terrible actor and the...

Allyson Oplinger
Here are my two issues with this episode:
1. If they are staying with this woman at Rose cottage, where is Sarah? With her being so inquisitive and romantic and nature I would think she would be totally into this mystery.
2. Gus’s “talk” with Felicity is too abrupt, he doesn’t make a “move” sexual...
I always appreciate new information on the world news.
Allyson, how long do you think it would take for Arthur to be on a train back to Avonlea once he heard Felicity was available? My guess is that it would be immediately.
Allyson Oplinger
Why didn’t Arthur return in season 7 as a love interest instead of new character, Stuart? Would have made even more sense
What if Al Pacino starred as "Stuart McRae" in season 7? That would have been explosive! That's interesting Adelita about the Irish Man being based on Sheeran's "I Heard You Paint Houses." I haven't seen the movie, but Sheeran tells the most likely story about what happened to Jimmy Hoffa.
Irishman Review : Fabulous! Joe Pesci ,Al Pacino ,Robert Deniro etc all great movie. This movie has more than book Paint Houses. Recommend anybody likes crime movies & drama movies you must see this one !As a fan of Pesci,Deniro,Pacino a shout out to you and hug kiss too.Keep up great work -Can'...
This is outright bullying! Izzy is tying to be herself and the other kids are bullying her into being something that she's not. Instead we get a bigoted 90's cop out where she is forced into gender conversion therapy by the status quo and pretending that some moral problem was solved. Terrible.

Hi Jocelyn, you might be thinking of May the Best Man Win with Jasper and Olivia taking a picture of Teddy Armstrong. Both great episodes all around!
Episode 6.2: Lonely Hearts in Joomla Article
I keep thinking about his episode because it is so out of place with the entire series. I think what really get's me is that we are supposed to feel sorry for the Countess because she has to sell her jewelry so she an take a first class train and meal that will cost a fortune. The man at train sta...
Wasn't there an episode with Lester and his son when Olivia and Jasper took a photo of him eating blueberry pastries? I think he said his mom had died. In this episode the mother is alive, pregnant, and with 8 children.
Episode 6.2: Lonely Hearts in Joomla Article
Just a few thoughts as I make my way through the series . Oh my goodness I felt so bad for Simon Tremaine. I really do hope he and Hetty get together. Oh, can I ask when did Avonlea get a soda counter? And did that Nat not look way too old for those girls?!? It was positively creepy watching him fl...
Episode 6.2: Lonely Hearts in Joomla Article
Wait a second- Avonlea's budget was the same cost as Downton Abbey's? How is that possible?
It depends on what type of writing. I can see Hetty writing an etiquette book of the age to instruct on proper decorum. However, I can't see her writing worldly romance novels. It's funny, because her publisher drops her in Momento Mori because she lacks the life experience to write these books. We...
This makes me sad for both sides. I like both. It will be interesting to see how this goes. As a fan I hope it gets settled without a lot of slander.
That's so interesting! I always found that story line out of place; its nice to know where it came from. I would have preferred if Hetty had just remained a teacher, although her being a writer is in line with her personality.
Actually, if you pay close attention to Anne with an E, you can see that they clearly "borrowed" things from Sullivan's version. Things that were not included in the books. The reasons that you are including here are probably the least of them, which I am sure would come out if this case progresses ...
I didn't realize her brother was also in the hotel business. I knew Jackie's ex-husband was in the 60's band Loving Spoonful but this latest family connection was unknown to me.
You're probably right. I remember they use to sell 'Marilla's jewelry.' I can just picture a mortified Marilla seeing her jewelry flaunted to the masses.

I think Jackie's brother Gary still operates that Bed and Breskfast in Niagara. I never knew it was originally operated by their mother.
Ryan B.
Yeah it looks like they're taking other gift basket related items and just slapping an Anne label on them..
I agree this is one of the best episodes and a great way to end the second season with an ensemble cast! It's currently ranked 9th all time on the Episode ratings list. That's a good find Ryan about Andrew playing hockey in 'The Last Winter.' You're probably right that this is why they brought him...
Maybe he's not making enough from the cracked slate face scrub?
Ryan B
This may be my favourite episode of the series! Well maybe second after Proof of the Pudding. Looking back at this episode now I think the likely reason Andrew's in this episode is because his actor, Joel Blake, can play hockey. Joel can also be seen playing hockey in his other acting credit "The La...

Most of Disneys early productions from the 1930's and 40's feature quite a bit of drinking and smoking. Now the newest dvd releases of those films have these PSA's at the beginning of each film warning of the dangers of alcohol and tobacco use. Disney has really changed.
Ryan B.
Wow! Sullivan must really need money..
Thank you Katie! It's refreshing to hear an alternative perspective of this episode. If you think that Hetty is out of character, wait until you see 'A Dark and Stormy Night' and the 4th seasons' Lady and the Blade. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on other episodes.

Katie Kost
I have to say this episode bothered me a ton. Hetty seemed so out of character. She doesn't stick me as the fawning type and totally babies Sarah in this episode. I felt like the writers just changed her to fit a story they wanted to write. oh and I love this site. Especially as my husband just...
Episode 2.12: A Mother's Love in Joomla Article
I can honestly say that my boys and I loved the tales of avonlea. We believed it was wholesome and had much merit. There were many instances of family values, morals and love. Maybe if more shows spent time on providing good values and truth even with heartbreak and comedy we would have a better wo...
Hey Felicity, I remember that when you had to pay more for Disney and Avonlea was the #1 prime time show on the channel. That was amazing. You are so right about these serious issues addressed by the series like Cecily's TB. I didn't realize how much the cast and producers were fighting Disney cr...
