Remakes of classic novels demonstrate how we find ourselves anew in old stories—including those of the Bible.
Great article and very valid points! The Megan Follows version of Anne is one that I will always treasure, and the new Anne is a refreshing spin on the character. However, I would not recommend watching more than Season 1 of Anne with an E to my fellow Christians. The forced emphasis on feminism was quaint in Season 1, but there is nothing humorous about the pro LGBT+++++ push in Season 2. The excellent example of artistic license in adding in a social awareness character like Bash with the spin on Gilbert's story is not even enough good for me to justify allowing my kids to watch the travesty that is the grotesque mutation of Aunt Josephine's story. And let's not even talk about the weird Christmas play...
I had such high hopes for this adaptation after Season 1 and it's masterful representation of the trauma and long ter effects children suffer from abuse. My kids have seen and loved Season 1, but in all good conscience there aren't enough profitable examples in Season 2 to justify bringing so many bad examples into my home via the watching of this show.
