"Road to Avonlea is my all-time favourite television show, and I'm so pleased that it's becoming available on DVD. Season 3 is an excellent season, and in my opinion, one of the best. There is great character development as the children (especially Felicity) begin to grow up. We also get to see another side of Aunt Janet (other than as Alec's wife), as well as more episodes with Gus Pike. The focus is becoming less on Sara Stanley (although she is still a main character) and more on the rest of the King family.
My only complaint with this DVD is the lack of bonus features. I hope the next RtA DVD includes features such as cast interviews, behind-the-scenes, and bonus footage.episodes on this DVD (I put a * next to my favourites):*The Ties that Bind - Olivia and Jasper's wedding! very funny, and very touchingFelix and Blackie - Felix starts a delivery service with his horse, Blackie.*Another Point of View - Aunt Hetty resigns from teaching Avonlea School, and she is replaced by Professor Dimple, who introduces the students to modern ways of learning.When she was bad...she was horrid (2 parts) - Sara gets fed up with Aunt Hetty controlling her life, so she runs away and leaves a double (Jo Pitts) in her place.Aunt Janet Rebels - Aunt Janet campaigns for women's rights to vote.A Dark and Stormy Night - Gus gets a job at the White Sands hotel and falls for a mysterious guest.*Friends and Relations - the ladies are off to an auction while the men go ice fishing.
