I first saw Anne of Green Gables and its Sequel on PBS. After seeing the movies, I was enamored with the stories. I researched it some more and found that Kevin Sullivan had made a third movie, The Continuing Story, which I caught glimpses of on Youtube. That cemented my decision to buy the DVD set. Whenever I want to relax or smile, I play the DVDs. The bonus features are all worth it too. One note I would like to make: while the Continuing Story differs from the Anne of Green Gables timeline, Kevin Sullivan did an incredible job of giving me a sense of World War 1 -- better than anything I ever learned about the Great War in school. Also, the actors are well-cast! Megan Follows, Jonathan Crombie!!, Colleen Dewhurst, Richard Farmsworth, Patricia Hamilton, and Schuyler Grant are excellent actors! I wish Kevin Sullivan would create another movie with these same actors, except Anne and Gilbert would be parents of a lot of kids. It would be interesting to see how they deal with family life and the stresses of the world. I also bought the movie soundtrack by Hagood Hardy. The music is beautiful! Overall, I highly recommend this DVD set. It's far better to replay these movies than to watch the violence and silly reality shows on TV. I know Kevin Sullivan created some other shows (Road to Avonlea and others), and I hope they show on PBS for me and others to enjoy.
