Fun show to watch with your daughter!

"My daughter loved Anne of Green Gables so we gave this show a try. I really enjoyed watching each show with her. The only downside to this would be the mystical aspect. Emily has visions of the dead and can communicate with them. It is rather strange and sometimes eerie. Other than that, she has a lot of spunk like Anne did, but she is definitely not a people pleaser. I did have my husband and son watch for one show and they didn't seem to enjoy it. This is definitely not a timeless masterpiece like Anne of Green Gables is; however it is highly enjoyable. We are looking forward to the release of Season 2."
Not as good as the first season

"The first season was passable, though straying from the book's story often. The second season is very scary and not suitable for some children at all - or adults! Some of the characters such as the gypsy, Uncle Thom, Mrs. Kent and others are very scary. The story line strays so far from the actually books it is astounding. Though there are a few episodes which are not this bad, some are absurd such as the final episode with the all the varying ways Aunt Laura's wedding might turn out but we don't know which it is. I guess this is to get people to "cliffhang" until the 3rd season. It's really a shame because the books themselves are so classy."
Beautiful cinematography & music

"This is a story of how an orphan is raised not only by softening the hearts and improving the circumstances around her but by her lively imagination and relationship with the spirit world...delightful drama."
I CAN'T WAIT FOR SEASON THREE!!!

"I loved Anne of Green Gables, which I've watched many times, and fell in love with PEI when I visited for the first time in August 2007 (a highlight was our visit to the house on the north central coast (no tour buses here!) where Lucy Maude Montgomery lived and where we met one of her descendents). So when I saw this new series by LMM, priced relatively inexpensively, I decided to purchase season one. I loved it enough to purchase season two, which I just finished watching. I didn't want it to end! Although I was getting impatient with Laura's decompensation after the death of Elizabeth for the first two or three episodes of season two, I also realized that such a reaction was understandable and realistic, given her character. Nevertheless, I was relieved when she rebounded and, although I disliked Isabel ("Lucifer") at first, as the ice in her melted I grew to appreciate her just as I grew to appreciate Elizabeth as she warmed up to Emily. Each episode was different and kept my interest. Just as Anne of Green Gables (the Megan Follows, Colleen Dewhurst version) had a strong ensemble cast, so does this new series. I'm eager for season three (when will it arive?) so I can find out whether Laura marries Ian Bowles or Ilsa's dad, whether Jimmy ends up with Eve, whether Isabel ends up with the teacher, and if Malcolm marries "Jezebel." Oh, yes, and I want to see how Ilsa and Emily mature from girls into adolescents and young adults (I assume Emily does become a writer but does Emily end up remaining single or marrying her cousin, Perry, or Teddy? Does Ilsa marry Perry who she's always fighting with?). So, if any producers are reading these reviews, please...don't end with season three!! I look forward to many more seasons of this wonderful Emilia of Nuova Luna!"
