As a devoted fan of "Road to Avonlea", to say I was looking forward to this movie is putting it mildly!
Once again, Avonlea didn't let me down. The same colourful characters were charming as always and the scenery was beautiful (although it wasn't the Avonlea I remember- those of you who have seen it will know what I mean. But of course, Avonlea will "remain in our hearts forever" so it doesn't really matter).
However, Avonlea just wasn't the same without Gus, Jasper, Davey and Dora, to mention a few. Also, I found this movie to be somewhat "darker" than the show ever was. I suppose this was to be expected since it's set in wartime, I guess even idyllic Avonlea can't help but to be influenced by the war.
"Happy Christmas Miss King" tied up a few unanswered questions that were left in the finale episode of "Road to Avonlea"- "So Dear to my Heart", but it created a whole bunch of new unanswered questions!! I think this calls for another Avonlea reunion, right???
