STUNNINGLY, BREATHTAKINGLY OVERPRICED AT AMAZON

"Great series about family life during the Great Depression in a mining town in Canada. This series has it all--cute kids, interesting and engaging adult characters, a battle axe of a grandma who can actually have a heart at times, fantastic sets, convincing costumes, solid acting, and a story line that pulls you along. It's heartwarming, genuine "family entertainment" and an ideal choice for anyone who enjoys "wholesome" programming, and is particularly suited to those who are terrified that their children might see adults acting like adults sometimes do (not a profanity to be heard, nor a glimpse of "untoward" flesh anywhere to be seen)...all in all, it makes a wonderful gift for all ages.
However, you can get this for more than half the Amazon price from Sullivan Entertainment (the "Anne of Green Gables" franchise). As of July, 2008, they're asking sixty nine ninety five plus shipping for both seasons. This hundred and forty nine dollar price tag is a blatant, even offensive ripoff, which is why I only gave the series four stars.
Fairly priced, it deserves five.
Also, for fans of the show, someone other than Sullivan has acquired the rights to Seasons 3-5, and they should be coming out with those sets in the fall of 2008. I'll be first in line to buy them, as the series is addictive!"
