4.0 out of 5 stars Exquisite beginning, disappointing finish, 7 Aug. 2008
Like many of you I adored the books by L.M.Montgomery and was entranced as a child by this adaption of Anne of Green Gables. I always hoped they would take the series further and was delighted when The Continuing Story was made. However, this is a warning to true Montgomery fans - The Continuing Story is disappointing in that unlike the first two series, it is a completely different story to what was written. I would have liked to have seen her daughter Rilla, and her struggles with a beau away at war (in the books Anne is a middle aged Mother by this time, happily married to Gilbert and with many children). It is strange to go from having Anne of Green Gables so lovingly and faithfully adapted to this misfit and because I had read the books I found it difficult to watch. Montgomery did a fine job of continuing the story. They should have taken her cue.
Otherwise Megan Follows is one of those rare actresses who completely moulds into the character of Anne. Stunning scenery, beautifully done.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy Sunday afternoon watching, 29 July 2008
Yes Born and Bred plays on the small British Village setting, complete with your stereotypical idiots, ie Wilf Bradshaw and Eddy, the town mechanic and the plots do not contain high drama but I found this series endearing and difficult to stop watching. The setting and costumes were magnificent and I think the series succeeds in providing the viewer with light-hearted entertainment. Series Four was probably the weaker because of the contrived plot lines and reshuffle of characters but having said that the actors themselves gave good performances.
Still worth a Sunday afternoon's viewing.
