Re: Lisa Lennox

By "introduction," I thought she might have been in the Season 6 opening credits, since most of it was unrelated to a specific episode. She slightly resembles one of the parade dancers, and that could be why no specific episodes are mentioned. I skimmed through Season 1 tonight, and there are two gi...

Re: Your Favorite RTA Opening Credits

I don't think I ever really noticed the dog until now, but you can see him hidden behind the logo in the original opening credits. He darts to left just as it's fading to the next scene. The second shot where the children are running beside a fence has definitely changed. In the original, there was ...

Re: Asexual RTA

Just because I do not daydream about Gus and Felicity's sex life does not make me any less of a fan than any "shipper" on the internet. I love the characters as much as the next person, and I think the writers did a fabulous job keeping adults interested in the story without having to bring sex into...

Re: Asexual RTA

But she also said (emphasis added)... But, really, I understand. And I'm not a smut monger but I am an adult human and with that comes a sexual identity and I would have liked to see that in the relationships on the show. It's a Catch 22. Avonlea wouldn't be Avonlea if they frankly dealt with those...

Re: 6.3: Christmas in June

I don't think Hetty forgave Blair in Nothing Endures; to me, it always seemed as if she was tolerating him for Sara's sake. In "Sara's Homecoming," Hetty gives Blair the evil Hetty eye when he leaves as soon as Sara arrives, and later, she even tells Sara she's going to have to get use to Blair's he...

Re: 6.3: Christmas in June

Also, come to think of it, had Cecily died of TB I don't think Hetty would have handled it very well either, given how upset she had been about Ruth. Hetty is one of the reasons I think Cecily should have died in Season 5. By then, Hetty's character had changed drastically, and I think a dying Ceci...

Re: Asexual RTA

I myself identify as a Christian but certainly take a more forward view of sex and found it limiting to see characters I loved grow and mature with their sexuality still veiled. Huh??? Are you serious??? This is Road to Avonlea... not Road to Penetration. There is a reason why it aired on the Disne...

Re: 6.3: Christmas in June

There were so many episodes where Cecily just stood in the background doing nothing that I never really noticed when she was there and when she wasn't. With the recast coming at the end of the series, bringing a new character into the role just seemed unnecessary, especially since her character neve...

Re: Your Favorite RTA Opening Credits

Gema only guest-starred during Season 7 appearing in only 4 episodes; she wasn't a regular cast member and was sorely missed (by me and a few million other RTA fans, I imagine). I have a hard time picking a favorite opening credits. I love, love, love the first season because it was essentially all ...

Re: question about rta book

Here is an Amazon link for the book you may be talking about. I must say... I am impressed by the product description which begins "High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles!" The book is listed as being 96 pages in length with a price tag of $46.00. That's a little steep, even for Sully Boutique p...

Re: Bonjour from New Orleans

To me, Felicity's dress looks as if it's really two separate parts- the bodice and the skirt. If you can look past the Renaissance ties, McCalls is selling a similar bodice pattern (M4696) right now- minus the ruching on the blouse and the side lacey wraps on the side, which any dress maker can recr...

Re: Bonjour from New Orleans

Good choice with your dress! I always loved Felicity's dress much more than Anne's. I hope you have a lot of success trying to re-create it. I am still trying to get to PEI myself, but it's an expensive trip from the Mid-Atlatnic states. Best wishes to you and your fiance!

Re: Reviews

I always attributed this change to Alec suddenly waking up and realizing that his baby girl was no longer a child. I always felt he liked Gus, but there is a difference between liking a person and trusting this person around his teenage daughter. From Alec's point of view, calling on Felicity when h...

Re: Chances of a Jackie Burroughs Tribute RTA Movie?

Would anyone really enjoy a movie centering around the aftermath of Aunt Hetty's Funeral? A Road to Avonlea movie without Jackie just isn't Road to Avonlea, and I think it would be very challenging for the writers to create a story that would resonate with fans. If KS wanted to create a tribute, rat...
