    It’s already aired in Canada under the title Anne, it’ll premiere on Netflix may 12. It’s written and produced by Moira Walley-Beckett, writer of Ozymandias. Currently at 82 on metacritic. Niko Caro (Whale Rider) will direct the first episode.

    Is anyone going to watch this? I don’t know anything about Anne of Green Gables, but given the reviews and people behind it, I’m definitely going to check it out.

    That would seem like a slap in the face to the talent behind it.

    Reviews describe it as dark and gritty, so I don’t think it’s for children.

    I thought that it was only gritty by comparison to past adaptations. The books are for children.

    I LOVED the books and still own them, would gladly reread them if I didn’t have 150 other books to read. The color palette does seem really stark and they’re not glossing over the heavier parts of the book but it’s still unquestionably for the younger crowd, with messages for all (as typical of family programming). It would be really bizarre to categorize it as otherwise. It was pure slice-of-life coming-of-age stuff.

    Did not expect Moira to be attached but whatever works, works. I’m honestly going to check it out, get me some mad nostalgia.

    No way this gets a series nomination, but I’m curious to see if it gets writing or directing if she show hits. Niki Caro is a fairly known director. Are there any high profile guest stars? Stylish children shows have gotten guest nominations before.

    I am not saying it has a chance at all though. Because it doesn’t.

    Doesn’t really seem like a project the emmys would go for. Since it originally aired in Canada, I don’t think it will have a push from Netflix like their other imported shows.

    PIlot was good. Could be a below the line contender. Beautifully shot. The music composition was stunning. Every other day I say a different show should be winning for music lol but there are a lot of good contenders. This won’t make a big dent.

    The lead actress was ok for a kid but her voice was grainy and annoying. That’s not really her fault and I guess it works for the feminist don’t judge a book by the cover theme bud oh well.

    The show is a bit on the nose with the themes and the dialogue can be great but it can also be cringes. A better actress could have pulled of Anne’s lines better. She’s still good.

    Submitting this in children’s program would be such a slap in the face to the talent. It’s not amazing but it’s to good to be in children’s program. And it would be boring for a kid anyway. This is for a middle school aged kid. But fine for adults too.

    The acting of the adopting parents was too notch. I’m not sure if they are lead or supporting yet. The adopted dad actor should be a contender for a nomination. Won’t happen but he does some very good subtle acting.

    My grade: B-

    Not sure how submitting a children’s program as a children’s program is a slap in the face.

    BecUse it’s a quality show and not a child’s program. It deserves to compete in Drama and Fraudig it into a child’s program is insulting to the people that worked on it because it’s better than that and it really isn’t a child’s program. It’s for all ages and it’s pretty decent.

    I’m not understanding the slap in the face. Things made for children or families can’t be “quality”? Or only stupid, vapid things are considered “children’s programs” so it shouldn’t be in the category?

    I think the people who decided to adapt a children’s book into a children’s show realize that it would be considered a children’s program and would not be insulted. They should be proud that they made a wonderful show targeted towards a younger audience without being demeaning or condescending because that’s the product they were creating. It’d be frauding to remove it from such to compete in drama, not the other way around.

    And just because something can be appreciated by multiple ages doesn’t not make it a children’s show. Doctor Who and Harry Potter have appreciable adult fanbases but that doesn’t change the fact that they are targeted towards younger audiences or families. Even My Little Pony.

    The 1980’s adaptation with Megan Follows as Anne and Colleen Dewhurst as Marilla Cuthbert is such an important part of my childhood that I’ll have a difficult time accepting any new adaptation. That said, I will eventually check it out, begrudgingly.

    Have you guys actually watched the show? This shouldn’t even be a discussion, it is absolutely not a children’s program.

    Exactly!

    It would be fraud!

    It isn’t a slap in the face to place it in children program if it deserves to go there. But, if your gonna use the argument of the one below:

    I’m not understanding the slap in the face. Things made for children or families can’t be “quality”? Or only stupid, vapid things are considered “children’s programs” so it shouldn’t be in the category?

    And just because something can be appreciated by multiple ages doesn’t not make it a children’s show. Doctor Who and Harry Potter have appreciable adult fanbases but that doesn’t change the fact that they are targeted towards younger audiences or families. Even My Little Pony.

    Than why isn’t A series of unfortunate events being submitted in children program. I’d be less frustrated if unfortunate events was also placed in children’s program. In my opinion, it would be insulting to put one “children’s program” into children’s program and another into comedy.

    To me, that is say that Anne with an E is not worthy of competing in Drama, so instead they just throw it in the lesser category. It is a drama. And let’s be honest. Children’s program is a lesser category.

    In my opinion, I don’t even like the animated and children categories. There are way to many categories and they dilute the best shows. In my opinion, the best shows should compete with the best shows. That’s just me. If I had a choice animated would compete with comedy or drama or limited/movie (wherever the show belongs) as would child’s program and TV movies. While we’re at it, I’d get rid of the gender split too. Too many categories.

    Okay sorry for the rant. My point is. Anne with an E is not a children program. Too put it in the lesser category instead of where it belongs is an insult especially when the same company isn’t placing Unfortunate events in children program. The team behind Anne worked very hard to create a drama. Respect the talent by placing it where it belongs instead of frauding it into children’s just so they can be greedy. It should have a chance to get the recognition, if t deserves it, where it belongs.

    That being said, based on what I’ve seen I wouldn’t nominate it outside of MAYBE supporting actor and below the line nominations.
