Road to Avonlea

Hi there!! 

Here is the promised review of the lovely series of Road to Avonlea.

We are watching season 5 now, which is very lovely, as all of the seasons we already watched. 

We couldn't find season 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 in the library, so I googled a little while and I found a site where we could look all seasons of Road to Avonlea. Without subtitels, but that doesn't really matter to me, it can improve my English. 

If you might be curious, here's the link of the site: GoMovies.

Let us take a look at zee characters. (Sorry for the fuzziness in some pictures)

Sara Stanley~  Sara is an adventurous ten-year-old girl, she grows older through the seasons, used to living luxuriously in Montreal with her father and nanny Louisa, she must learn to adjust to simpler life in the little village of Avonlea in Prince Edward Island. Her mom was Ruth, the sister of Alex, Hetty and Olivia King. Sara must stay with her aunts Olivia and Hetty King at Rose Cottage. Sara learns to appreciate the lifestyle Avonlea has to offer and eventually comes to enjoy it.

Hetty King~ Hetty is the middle-aged, traditional and very serious school teacher of Avonlea and also the head of the King family. She is living at Rose Cottage with her sister Olivia, who got married in season 2, and her niece Sara. Hetty becomes a important person in Sara's life, a second mother figure.

Felicity King~ Felicity is the eldest daughter of Alex and Janet King. She is often insists on taking on adult responsibilities of her younger sister and brothers and her niece, Sara. In season 2, she meets Gus Pike, who is eventually becomes her crush or should I say boyfriend trough the seasons.

Felix King~ Welcome to the road of trouble. Felix is the second eldest son of Alex and Janet King. He seems to get in trouble every episode of the seasons, but he has a good heart. Felix is quite ambitious and is always trying to find ways to make money. He is good friends with his niece Sara and the Pettibone children.

Cecily King~ Cecily is the quiet, younger daughter of Alex and Janet King. Unlike her sister Felicity and her brother Felix, Cecily loves the farm and is content to stay in Avonlea. She loves her dog Digger.

Olivia King~ Olivia is the sister of Hetty and the aunt of Sara. Olivia is the youngest of the King siblings. She is the more sensitive and social one of Sara's two aunts and is a big sister figure to Sara. She learns to stand on her own feets and marries Jasper Dale, despite Hetty's disapproval. She and Jasper get a little boy named Montgomery in season 3.

Jasper Dale~ Jasper is a shy photographer with a stutter, he is also a talented inventor who wins the heart of Olivia King. Jasper may be akward and socialy inkept, but he has a heart of gold and loves both Avonlea as Olivia. He and Olivia getting married in season 2, and they get a little boy named Montgomery in season 3.

Alex and Janet King~ Janet is a independent-minded woman. She is the wife of Alex King and they have four children, Felicity, Felix, Cecily and little Daniel, who is adorable. Janet is not afraid to speak her mind and express her opinion about family, financial and political issues.
Alex King is the eldest son of the King family, brother of Hetty and Olivia King and uncle of Sara. He is married with Janet and they have four children, the names you know by now already. He is a devoted husband, father and friend. Alex is proud to be a farmer, he wants to leave the farm to Felix, but Felix has other plans in his mind. So, Alex is considering to give the farm to Cecily, who loves the farm more than Felix.

Gus Pike~ Gus is a young vagabond who grows to earn the respect and love of the Avonlea townfolks. In spite of his humble beginnings, he also manages to win the love of Felicity King. Gus lives in a firehouse. He's got humor and a funny accent. He used to play the violin, but it disappeard. 

And you have got the Pettibone's who arrived in season 4. Izzy and her brother Morgan, become friends with Felix. The eldest, Arthur, yes the one who looks angry in the picture above, takes an interest in Felicity, but eventually gives up and went to school again. Glad that is over. 
Izzy is a kind girl, a tomboy. I hope she will wear dresses through the seasons. I like her just who she is, but I would love to see her in a dress. 

(I guess there will be a romance between Izzy and Felix through the seasons. :) It's just a guess, I will see)

Rachel and Marilla from Anne of Green Gables do also appear in the series, in quite a lot of episodes.
Gilbert Blythe appears in episode 13 of season 3, which is such a sad episode.
Muriel Stacey appears in some episodes of the seasons. 
And the actress who played Katherine Brooke in Anne of Green Gables, plays Janet's sister Abigail in Road to Avonlea. Isn't that funny?

La-di-da, now we had all the characters. There are more, but they only have small roles.

 Here's a video, just to meet a little bit of the characters.

Opening credits season 3.

And season 5...

So, what do you think about Road to Avonlea? Have you seen it? 

For everyone who didn't see the show yet, do watch it, it is a good serie to watch.

Yours Truly, Rachel

Do you know who I am? I'm Robin Hood!

How it all began, the growing romance between Robin and Marian.

(There will be SPOILERS!!!!)

Now, we all love the relationship between those sweethearts. Don't we?
Before Robin went to fight at the Holy Land, he and Marian were engaged. But Robin thought it was his duty to fight next to his king at the Holy Land, so, off he went, leaving Marian alone, with no promise if he is ever going te return back.

Years later, they meet again. That is actually the first time we see Marian, with a bow, which is cool. I really loved her the first time I saw here, standing next to her father, telling Robin to leave. <3

But, they must meet again, and they do. Marian is telling Robin that he is a fool and he must grow up.  He stil loves her, you can see it ever time in his eyes, when he sees her. He still has a big part of her heart, even though he left her to fight with his king in the Holy Land. She knows and he knows. 

We also have that Guy and Marian issue, which has put my mind thinking what is going to happen with the relationship of Robin and Marian. But, as we all know, Robin wins at the end, don't think at the consequences of the issue. 

Guy is actually a fly who is buzzing aroud Marian, leaving Robin think if she still loves him or not. I know I sound hard against Guy, but he can be annoying, sometimes. In season 3 he changes.
Actually Marian plays with both Guy and Robin's feelings, she is not really playing with their feelings, she does what is the best for her and her father. They both love her, but only one can win her heart. Guy is always buying presents for Marian, showing his feelings in a quite way for her.

Another obstacle is that Robin is an outlaw and she lives with her father in a small town, later in the castle of the sherrif of Notthingham as a prisoner. She is not allowed to see Robin, because he is an outlaw, but she does. 

And then we have the episode where Marian almost dies. Robin tells her that he loves her, which she doesn't hear. Thanks to dear Allan A Dale she was saved.
''I'm not being funny, but she is breathing.''

Marian almost wedded Guy of Gisborne, but Much thought her reconsider her decision. Which was a relief, because if that happened, all hopes would float for Robin. Then Marian finally discovers that she loves Robin.

Then, a few weeks later, Guy is still angry on Marian for leaving him at the altar, Marian's father dies. It is very heartbreaking for her, because she loves him with all her heart. Guy wants to comfort her, but she neglects him and seek for protection of Robin. 

And then they are finally happily together! <3 
Marian leaves the castle and her father's old home and lives with Robin and the other gang members in the woods. But, they both can be stubborn, so they argue a lot with each other, disagree with a lot of things. Robin thinks Marian can't join the gang when they try to safe people from the sheriff and Guy. But, stubborn as she is, Marian ignores Robin and joins them. But, they are sorry and make things good. 
Robin proposes and Marian says yes. <3

Then Marian turns back to the castle, but she and Robin still meet. She is his little spy, like Allan would say, little Marian bird told him, giving him information about the sheriff's plans.
Marian finds out that Robin died, which is not true, and tries to kill the sheriff. She is taken to the Holy Land with Guy and the sheriff. Robin finds out that she is taken to the Holy Land and goes after her. With the other members of the gang. Because, we must not forget them. 

Guy and the sheriff are trying to kill the king, and Robin tries to stop them. 
Guy wants to kill the king, who is injured with an arrow, but Marian stops him and beg him not to kill the king. Guy says he must and then.....she tells him that she loves Robin. Guy gets furious and stabs his sword in her stomach. She falls and Guy stands there, watching like a statue. 
Robin comes running to Marian and screams NOOOO!!! Guy jumps behind the sheriff and they leave. 

Robin and Marian continue their vows of marriage. Robin gives Marian a ring and the marry. And then the awfullest thing happened, our herione Marian dies. Robin teturns to England, heartbroken. 
This is the story of two young lovers, who find love, although their are a lot of obstacles in their way. The end is tragical, it shouldn't have happened. 

At the end of season 3, they find each other and live happily ever after. 

Robin and Marian forever. <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
