As much as I like Sarah, I hate how much she criticizes the show. I still think "Moving On" is a rather good episode and important Sara's development as a character. On the other hand, I'm not a fan of Sara's "love interest" in season five so I can't be objective about that. Call him creepy all you ...

Harmony Cramp as Cecily was my favourite actor on "Road To Avonlea." Harmony's portrayal of Cecily was faithful to the mild mannered, sweet tempered Cecily King depicted in L.M. Montgomery's "The Story Girl" and "The Golden Road." When the series deviated so much from the stories, it was refreshing ...

Hi Mahsa, it's because the episode page vote on this page is my own personal grade. The Power rankings grade is the combined community grade for this episode (based on the star rating at the top of each episode page). In hindsight, the community was probably right in many cases. All That Glitters...
Mahsa
How come this episode is grade A here but C- in power rankings?!
I actually liked the episode with the lesson of how Sara could use her inheritance by being a patron of the arts. The best part was when Robby Benson portrayed a goofy Sherlock Holmes type and called himself Reichenbach. (Reichenbach Falls is where Sherlock Holmes died in the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle ...

Ok I’m a wreck. Gus’s speech about never seeing Felicity’s face again reminds me of my husband. I burst into tears! Such a beautifully written episode. Gus and Felicity have grown as characters and actors. Bravo!

I love this episode! The writing harkens back to the first three seasons. It all focused on an elderly girl and the story about dementia is very true to life. Choked up at the end

Season seven is such a disappointment. It’s as though I’m watching a spin off of the original show. I miss Sarah, Felicity, the original Cecily , and how well written the show used to be. It used to be a Lucy Maud Montgomery show. By this season it’s a sitcom with no emotional development.
And Sel...

I found this episode more obnoxious than funny. Why did the girls feel they had to rush to the jewelry store at the end? It made no sense.
However the love between Alec and Janey is so potent that it makes up for it.
In “Davey and the Mermaid” the Midway comes to Avonlea, much to Hetty King’s dismay (her choking gasp upon hearing the idea was a big laugh for me). This episode puts young Davey and Mrs. Lynde on parallel tracks in the land of wonderment. Davey is smitten by a sideshow Mermaid, believing she is ...

I was crying when she and Hetty were working together. Their friendship is so genuine and you can see the love between the two. When Hetty tells Olivia that “I’ve known Rachel my whole life” and that she can’t see giving her up to her sons, I really got choked up. Great episode!

I think Nat is a breath of fresh air. He is funny and I like him.

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...

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.
Adelita
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!

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.

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...

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.
Lucy
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.
