Travel 100 years back in time and you'll end up in Avonlea. You'll love it.
A couple of weeks ago I decided to watch Road to Avonlea again, for the first time in over ten years. I didn't remember much about the show more than that I used to love it when I was a child. I've always been fond of history and adventures and Avonlea was a perfect mixture of those elements. A show which makes you dream about another time and place. When I re-watched the show this summer I remembered why I used to love it so much and after watching just a couple of episodes I was hooked, just like all those years ago. I still love Avonlea. I love the characters, I love their adventures, I love their beautiful island. I love their little world which I wish was real because if it was I would like to visit it.

I never got bored with the people of Avonlea because there were so many of them and something new always happened. There was love, fights, tears, joy, death, comedy and all the challenges and pleasures you meet in life. Through the years the young children of the show grew up and it was very interesting seeing how they evolved. I especially found Felicity's way from a little know-it-all besserwisser to a intelligent young woman interesting.

Every actor, both the lead characters and the guests on the show did an outstanding job and I can't remember a single actor who's character wasn't well played. I loved some and hated some but they all felt real.

Another thing of huge importance which I think was extremely well done was all the aesthetic things. The costumes, the locations and the props. Everything looked as it was taken straight from the early 20th century. Of course I'm no expert of home decoration and clothes of that time but I imagine the persons behind all of those things in the wardrobe and props departments did a lot of research before they created and gathered all those wonderful dresses and furniture.

Avonlea has made me both cry and laugh until I cried. It's one of the finest TV-series I've ever watched and I recommend it to anyone who wants to escape our stressful society for a while. Travel 100 years back in time and you'll end up in Avonlea. You'll love it.
