Why Road To Avonlea might be annoying:

    It is as syrupy as great-grandma’s molasses pudding.
    It does not follow the original stories very closely.
    The heavy old fashioned costumes led to the cast calling the show ‘Road to Agony’ during summer filming.
    Sarah Polley claimed the show exploited her and left it on bad terms.
    The producers got into a feud with Lucy Maud Montgomery’s heirs over royalties.

Why Road To Avonlea might not be annoying:

    It is safe to watch with the entire family.
    Unlike most Canadian shows, it had a large budget and high production values.
    It is one of the most internationally successful Canadian shows ever made.
    It won four Emmys.
    It made a star of Sarah Polley.
    It has many notable guest stars such as Faye Dunaway, Christopher Lloyd, Madeline Kahn and Ned Beatty.
