COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN THE GUARDIAN AND SENT TO CBC

 

This re-make of “Anne of Green Gables” sounds as sensible as “Little House on the Prairie” relocated to Fort Apache, the Bronx.

“Anne of Green Gables” IS Prince Edward Island and the values of another era.

Switching to a small US town is just with the hope of attracting American viewers at the cost of the story’s integrity.

“Anne’s issues are contemporary issues: feminism, prejudice, bullying and a desire to belong.”

That is undiluted puke from a pop psychology book or an insipid circular from the Board of Education.

And what an outlandish and just plain dishonest claim it is, having almost nothing to do with Anne.

This is a mindless waste of time and effort by the CBC and all concerned.
