Yeah, this was less good than the first one.
I hated every single one of the stinking children in this one, for one thing. Stories with young children in them from this era never attract me, and this was no exception. They were all so cutesy and blegh. I especially hated Davy and Dora - as well as the super-fucked-up treatment of Dora by Marilla and Anne. Also the phrase "you
know teacher" will never be utterable in my presence without me throwing something. URGH.
Some nice Shirbert moment though. I still like Anne, generally. Everyone else is fairly shite, though.
