Did you see the first episode of Anne with an E? RH Thomson (our very own Jasper Dale) plays Matthew Cuthbert. Can you believe how much time has passed since the series ended?

I will have to go back and watch the show. I will admit that I watched some of the first episode and just wasn't ready for a new Anne yet. I've heard mixed reviews. What are your thoughts on it?

I haven't seen it all either. My first thought was that I couldn't believe that RH Thomson, who played Jasper Dale, was playing Matthew Cuthbert. :ohmy: I didn't realize he was old enough to play Matthew so I was really surprised.

I remember in Friends and Relations when Alec and Jasper were ice fishing and talking about growing up as peers. I thought this was unusual because Alec seemed older than Jasper.

I've read the mixed reviews too. I'll probably try to watch more of it soon.

I looked it up and Richard Farnsworth was about 5 years younger than RH Thomson when playing Matthew Cuthbert. Martin Sheen on the PBS Anne was about 5 years older than RH Thomson when first portraying our humble bachelor. Jasper Dale and Matthew Cuthbert have a lot in common, although Matthew I'm sure never met anyone like that love-starved bat aficionado Jasper had to escape from.

Hah! I can just imagine Matthew Cuthbert being uncomfortable around Sydney Carver. Welcome Michael! That's interesting about the age differences.
