Anne with an E: Season 1 Reviews

May 15, 2017
Anne With an E falters in presenting all of this without an ounce of subtlety, as if its own screenplay had been penned by its feverishly imaginative heroine, who idolizes the gothic and the macabre.

Putting the source material aside, it's a fine show on its own.

Anne with an E dares to get bold and messy. It might push the messaging too far sometimes, but like its heroine it rarely feels insincere. We'll be watching to see where Anne takes us for the remainder of this journey.

Anne With an E has made a few perplexing choices in how it is adapting Anne of Green Gables. But when it comes to bringing Avonlea's atmosphere to life, and adding depth to a relatively simple story, it succeeds admirably.

If only television treated all its teenage girls with the same respect "Anne with an E" affords its whip-smart, scrappy protagonist.

Lifelong fans of the Anne of Green Gables series should find much to admire here, but the newly initiated will be just as easily drawn.

Anne With an E captures the winning exuberance of Anne Shirley-who, played by AmyBeth McNulty, is entirely irresistible-while finding some deeper potency in her story.

Anne's never been a simple character. McNulty doesn't play her as one.
