I am AGHAST AND AGAPE to be the first person to review this masterpiece!!!!!!,
This review is from: Anne Of Green Gables - The Collection [DVD] (DVD)
I have never reviewed anything until now, but find the reviews enormously helpful as I am English living abroad. However, on visiting Anne of Green Gables DVD (I have the complete video set, bought to replace my worn out taped from TV set, for which I would drive like the devil to get back home to press the rec button for) to find out its price on disc, (gasp, pant!) I was absolutely ASTOUNDED, SHOCKED, INCENSED to see no 5 stars flashing or at least 500 reviews extolling, exalting, praising, nay even worshiping this feat of one of the most loveable characters ever to have been committed to paper, tape or disc. I cannot see Megan Follows in anything else. She is Anne. Only Anne. The whole cast is overwhelmingly brilliant. My children were brought up on this. It is as precious to us as our collection of David Attenborough discs (he is called simply David in our house as he is really part of the family now), in the same realm, marvellous, magnificent, stupendously stunning, heart-warming stuff. [...] So yes, I unashamedly reiterate the remarks of some other generous reviewers: borrow it, steal it, beg for it, or just simply buy it and you'll be glad you didn't go another day without experiencing this gem of cinema, the jewel of the crown ... shall I go on? Phew! Well, duty called!

I totally agree with everything---my children will love to have their old TV taped videos replaced -- so am buying the DVDs . Christmas Tv will never be as good as these!!
Cordelia and Gilbert fan!
