You said that the character of Andrew King was not in Montgomery literature. I always assumed he was Beverley from The Story Girl books just with a different name. The name change would make sense because Beverley is now a girl's name.

Nice Episode. But how on earth do you spell Eulalie Bugle?

Hollyweird I should say. I can say, I'm a Cali native. I don't know much about what the actor did beyond this show, other than he made a film about Falun Gong, that I want to see. I did Falun Gong, and long story, but I was manipulated into discontinuing it by a political group when I was living i...

I liked this episode also. The inconsistencies with the stories of her romantic past I don't see as being very significant. I still just love the character, all the characters, and overall liked this. I like that she returns to England, even if for just a while. It was sweet. Nostalgic. And I ...

I liked Rachael's 'transformation'. I think it was really endearing her renewed interest in embracing life and not fretting about everything or gossiping.
Lucy
I do agree that they lost some good things about Gus after he first entered the series. I don't think he should have kept smoking, as was mentioned elsewhere lol, but what happened to the fiddle?? It was one of the most defining things about him. Something so romantic and magical about it. I don'...
Lucy
I object to the 'wimpy' analysis. Even though I do love the character of Gus. Peter is not wimpy, he's just sweet, and he is separated from his mother and people are nasty to him. How should he act under such circumstances? Let's not confuse sweetness or sensitivity with wimpiness. After all, G...

Felicity was so awful to Gus, here and in 'High Society' when she looks down her nose at him as a 'commoner'. Poor Gus (who is more desirable than any other male) just stays true to her through it all, and his tearing up when he keeps trying to get her to commit to him (after all it was Felicity th...

She starts out quite critical, but it's always clear she has good intentions, and frankly, I find Eliza adorable. I would love to have an Aunt Eliza. She's also very elderly, but very spry! lol She is a wealth of knowledge and about natural remedies, which I love. She helps out with the children...

Remember, Gus had already had a hard life, and no one really, till he came to Avonlea. He felt he lost everything all over again.

Though humourous, I have to disagree. A few things. One, yes, the hair etc was a bit silly. But you have to reason that one, he was blind and was not looking after his appearance. Two, he was meant to be in SC, much hotter than Canada, and a tan would have been likely. Three, I believe the actor...

Honestly, this take is absurd. Gus never cheated. Nor even came close. No one did. It was simply a matter of the writers originally having a different story line, and then deciding to change it, (thank goodness!) and therefore, having it come out a bit confused. Charlotte Aims was married to so...
Amy
I never liked the Stewart character even when I was a little kid and watched it. I thought I don’t see someone like felicity being with a guy like that because both of them don’t seem compatible. Also I think she would think he was too old for her. Just like when Sarah was fascinated with Zac Morgan...

I thought this series finale was very satisfying. It's hard to find a series that ends on such a nice note. Now it seems less satisfying when I think about Happy Christmas, Miss King. But maybe I'll change my mind when I rewatch HCMK.
Macy
The age gap between Felicity and Stuart kind of creeps me out. He's definitely old enough to be her father lol. I guess this was probably normal back then (but still creepy tho). I didn't think it was weird for Seth to get remarried so quick. Really, waiting a year to do so seems odd when you think ...

My favorite episode!! I just rewatched it and loved it as much as the first time. Jackie really shines in this episode and it really solidified Hetty as my favorite character.

I kind of understand where Sarah is coming from. But, I don’t think the series is childish. I guess she would’ve preferred something like Netflix’s Anne with an E, which I like but it became unrealistic in updating the book for modern audiences. Emily of New Moon also comes to mind. It dealt with a ...
I wished season 7 would've spent more time on the orphan Dean siblings and watching them emerge out of dreadful circumstances. Their refuge in Old Lady Lloyd's abandoned home reminds us that there was a fragile safety net for children at that time. Families could be struck down by disease in an in...

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...

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.

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!
