Like most fans, we’ll usually choose the book over the adaptation, but we’re still open to seeing what studios come up with. Except when they take a delightful, enduring classic like Anne of Green Gables and turn it into whatever Netflix did with Anne with an E. Straying from the source material is to be expected, but straying from the source material to unnecessarily superimpose 21st century values…not so much. Ratings are appropriately low, but we’re clutching our pearls plenty. At least for the parts we could make it through.
