Is Anne With An E On Netflix Any Good? Here Are My Thoughts Below
I’m not gonna lie, despite being a fan of Anne of Green Gables, I was reluctant to watch Anne With An E when it came out because I didn’t think it would be good.
I loved the show when I was younger, but for some reason, I just assumed it would be the same kiddie show it once was and so I passed on it.
There’s way too much shit on Netflix for me to sit here and watch a kiddie remake of Anne of Green Gables. I’m sorry y’all! Lol
But then people started messaging me and asking if I had watched it yet. Lol
I’m not sure WHY people were asking, but they were and so I promised everyone that I would check it out. Well, I watched the first episode of Anne With An E on Netflix last night and I was blown away at how good it was! I love it already.
The first episode of Anne With An E isn’t just good, it’s amazing.
I don’t really remember much from the old show, but I don’t remember it being this good! Lol It was just something we watched on TV because we didn’t have cable honestly. But from the moment I started watching the first episode, I was captivated and already regretting not watching this show sooner.
Anne is an incredible actress and the show takes you on an emotional roller coaster.
Flipping back and forth, from present time to Anne’s past, of the time she’s spent with other families, this new take on Anne living in Green Gables gives more insight on how hard Anne’s life really was before she moved.
I especially love Anne’s flashbacks and how they’re triggered by small things like a teacup or a baby crying. Of course, they’re not happy flashbacks so don’t think this is a happy go lucky show, it’s not.
Anne With An E is much more intense than Anne Of Green Gables.
And it’s clear that they made this for an older crowd, which I love.
However, this is a lot darker than the older show so be careful if you’re trying to watch this with kids. I’m not done with episode one yet, but so far this is a bit too depressing for my 7-year-old.
P.s – I hate Marilla’s friend as much as Anne hates her! Lol And she deserved what she got! I don’t care! Fight me. Adults need to learn to stop being assholes just because they’re older and THINK they deserve more respect.
So yeah, I’m gonna finish Anne on Netflix and see what kind of trouble she gets herself into. Thank you to everyone that told me to watch this!
Look at y’all influencing the influencer. Lol
After I watch a few more episodes I’ll probably add this to my Netflix recommendations post. I can’t see a life where I’ll end up hating this now. Especially since so many people are begging for more seasons.
Clearly it gets better right? I guess we’ll see!
