Editorial Reviews

Based on Lucy Maud Montgomery's novel, Emily of New Moon is the brilliant story of a free-spirited, orphaned girl, whose vivid imagination, passion to write, and romantic nature clash with her strict adoptive family. Season one follows Emily (Martha MacIsaac, Superbad) as she adjusts to a new school, makes new friends, and attempts to discover her parents' and family's past. Through it all, Emily handles her difficult issues with poise beyond her years and with an uncanny ability to wonderfully complicate the lives of everyone around her.

5.0 out of 5 stars This show has stayed with me for years September 29, 2008
Format:DVD
Aired from 1998-2000 and spanning four seasons
Based on Lucy Maud Montgomery's Novel, Emily of New Moon is the brilliant story of a free-spirited orphaned girl who's vivid imagination, passion to write, and romantic nature clash with her strict adoptive family.
I am an avid fan of period TV and movies so, when I stumbled on this show on cable while in my teens it was almost a given that I was going to enjoy it. But I had know idea then what a deep impression it would leave on me. I had heard of L.M. Montgomery and read Anne of Green Green Gables and Anne of Avonlea but had never heard of the Emily books so the series was completely new to me. and I was hooked, I watched as often as I could but the trouble was that the show's time slot Kept changing with the result that I often missed out, which was annoying because the show quickly became my favorite. Everything about it was wonderful, the casting/acting, the costumes and sets, the music especially the music. in short for me it was TV bliss. It wasn't all bad really, withdrawl symtoms from missing the show lead me to read the books Emily of New Moon (Emily Novels) Emily Climbs (Emily Novels) and Emily's Quest (Emily Novels) which to this day are at the top of my list of The Best Books Ever. Eventually I lost track of the show completely, and never got to see the last episodes, but I never forgot about it. If you've seen and enjoyed the Anne of Green Gables movies

3.0 out of 5 stars Beware the Ghosts June 16, 2010
By D.M.
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I loved Anne of Green Gables. When I found a series other reviewers recommended so highly I jumped at the chance to introduce my children to another of LM Montgomery's worlds. Perhaps I did not read enough of the reviews. As I re-read the reviews I find one that hints at what I wish had been more clear to me before my investment into watching this series. There are some huge themes parents should be aware are in this TV series (1st season).

1) Emily sees ghosts. They call it 'second sight' in the book, but just about every episode has her interacting with ghosts that want her to solve a mystery, to right an injustice or enable them to rest. As a Christian I find this disturbing, and have approached it with my children as 'pretend' or 'like fairies.' The occult is not something kid-friendly, or 'cute'.

2) Real life issues. Emily deals with: death of mother, death of father (death is symbolized by a black horseman crashing through the wall of her house), rejection by her only relations, verbal abuse. She encounters others dealing with premaritial pregnancy, their own illigitimacy, drunkenness, adultery, idolatry, broken engagement due to unfaithfulness, hatred, prejudice, unforgiveness, loose-women, a murderer is hanged in one scene, an American Indian boy is beaten, she is beaten. There are several cases of severe child neglect, emotional trauma, child abandonment, she and her friends try to discover "where babies come from" and get pretty close to finding out.... (to name a few).

One reviewer said the series is 'not for children.' With a sigh I say it has brought some issues about life to my innocent children's minds that they didn't need to know about. Not yet.

But I watch it with my children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb stories, excellent casting, excellent DVD quality December 30, 2008
By Ronald
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My wife and I stumbled onto the Emily of New Moon television series on Georgia Public Television and loved it instantly. I'm not sure that we were able to catch every episode during its entire run but even if we had I would never regret buying every episode of every season again. Since that initial exposure to Emily, we've already bought almost every book L. M. Montgomery wrote. And, when Amazon sent me an e-mail about the DVD of Season One, I couldn't order or get it fast enough. It was as if a long lost friend had been found again. We're now on our second viewing of it in a week. Casting of the central characters couldn't have been better and the story lines are superb. While some have lamented the spirits who often visited Emily, they miss the point that, above all, this is a character study of a young, imaginative, and creative mind. When I was Emily's age, I must confess that thoughts of such mysterious beings were within the fold of my imagination as well. Today, as a 68 year old retired judge and having lost the capacity myself, I delight now in reviving such lucidity of imagination, albeit if only vicariously through Emily's eyes. If you love good, clean, family entertainment and can give yourself up to enjoying this as an enchanting period piece of life on Prince Edward Island at or about the turn of the last century, this DVD set will be a treasured jewel. And, at the offered price, you won't find so much quality entertainment anywhere at multiples of the price.

2.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE GHOST STORIES! (But not this one!) July 23, 2011
Format:DVD
I love ghost stories, Gothic fiction, and supernatural thrillers. I am the proud owner of all the black-and-white episodes of the old DARK SHADOWS serial. In fact, while reading the novel EMILY OF NEW MOON recently, I couldn't help thinking how well it would adapt to a similar serialized treatment. So, seeing this DVD set going for a nice low price, and hearing that it emphasized the Gothic/supernatural angle, I decided to ignore the negative reviews and give it a shot.

Well, I didn't like it either. In fact, it took me forever to get through it. (The first two episodes are particularly unwatchable). Though the show improves once the heroine arrives at New Moon and the writers start following the book a LITTLE, it still falls far short of the book's standard and its own potential.

In the novel, Emily is a sensitive and artistic child who cannot help but clash with her Puritanical relatives, but who also has a strong sense of family honor and loyalty. In the show, she is more often written as deliberately insolent or even nasty. Her Aunt Elizabeth, in the novels, was upright and honest, trying to do her best with a child she simply didn't understand. But this Elizabeth is an unprincipled hypocrite ruled by spite, who continually violates her own moral standards. She steals mail, burns books that don't belong to her, abandons pets to die in the woods, and generally behaves like a witch in a fairy tale. Attempts to "humanize" her are thus unconvincing, and more often involve knocking her down than portraying her strengths and virtues.

And this is the general trend of the series -- turning complex characters like Elizabeth into ludicrous Victorian caricatures, then shooting them down.

Too dark for me. It may have lightened up if I'd stuck with it. I'm not fond of Montgomery's forays into the occult realm.
