I saw a small video of one of the Avonlea reunions, and Jackie was in it; she's cool. :D
Sometimes it is hard to pin down what makes a show like this special. It's different from most stuff out there. :)

That is extremely difficult! I really love both, but I guess RTA has to win in the end for me.

I actually have a childhood friend who loves the Anne movies but can't stand RTA. I've always thought that was a little weird myself.

Yes Shinnen you are right,i also think that jackie is cool!I also saw a small part of an avonlea reunion.I noticed that the voice of Jackie is a lot different then in RTA.In reality she has a very soft voice,she's a real great actress!

I love AOGG but RTA is so much longer and about so many more characters, you feel more a part of it and so enjoy it more. So as much as I adore AOGG I think I prefer RTA. :D

Yes, I think you've hit the nail on the head there... at least, for me, anyway!

I think the reason for why I like RTA more is because I always looked forward to seeing the adventures, happy and sad moments of the characters. Because it ran longer, a person felt as if they were a part of the community. It was a nice, comforting place to run to when you felt like you had to escape from the reality of the world for an hour.

I agree, Matheson. Anne Of Green Gables is my favorite movie but I became much more attached to the RTA characters because you get to watch them grow up over the years.
