Posted 1 July 2017 by

 

Wherever you are is my home

directed by Amanda Topping

Anne and Jerry’s Excellent Adventure (except for the mugging part.)

This is the final episode of Season One. We cover this episode, as we have for the past six weeks, and pinpoint the cliffhangers and stories Moira Walley-Beckett and team have to work with for (the biggest cliffhanger) Season Two. (pleasebeaseasontwopleasebeaseasontwo)

There was a little confusion about the direction of OUR show, The History Chicks, and thank you to all who realized that we did NOT alter our regularly schedule coverage of historical women at all with this bonus series. This was an example of The History Chicks accessories.  It was fun to do and if Anne comes back, so will we. (Well, we’ll be back next week with the life story of a remarkable woman whose identity will remain secret until then.)

 

We’ll put that in the shownotes!

Is this the new Jane Eyre? How delightful!

Give them some thanks for this excellent series (and, maybe, ask for season two):

Reed Hastings (CEO Netflix) Twitter account

You should thank these three for their work, and follow their careers and life antics, but we doubt they have anything to do with a second season:

Aymeric Jett Montaz (Jerry) Twitter Account

Lucas Jade Zumann (Gilbert) Twitter Account

(Lucas is also in 20th Century Woman, with Annette Benning available for streaming on Amazon Prime)

“So, like, how’s the gap year going?” Gilbert and Anne meet (oh so coincidentally, Susan-eyeroll) and have a nice talk as well as possible eye flirting.

The absolutely spot on Family Road Trip song that Jerry sang, Il éait une bergère’s lyrics (WITH translation into English that will reveal a dark side to this children’s song) on Mama Lisa’s World, International Music and Culture.

Easter Egg Hunt, anyone? (post recording thought: maybe Green Gables was perfect because it wasn’t IN Charlottetown?)

 

Anne and Gilbert have an impromptu spelling bee in the streets of Charlottetown. T-R-U-C-E
