When I was a young girl, I would sometimes watch Road to Avonlea with my mother and grandmother, and now as an adult, I appreciate and enjoy this show even more. Especially as how the world keeps changing on you and life isnt as simple as it used to be.

This season in particular is enjoyable because of the love story between Gus and Felicity, but also to see how the family stays strong together even to the end. You can't help but get a coziness inside from watching this family and all the people that come into their lives and how they interact and all the drama/happy times that go on.

It almost makes me want to live in the country, but of course that only lasts for so long, having grown up in the city. And so, its always nice to throw a big warm blanket over yourself, as you put in the RTA dvd that is so very welcoming.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Very Good Series June 2 2008
By Virginia E. Mulrooney - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This series is wonderful! However, on this seventh season I was disappointed because Sarah is absent and we don't see very much of Felicity (on the first couple episodes and on the very last) and Gus (on the very last episode). If you go onto Netflix you'll notice that most of the reviews are all negative. I honestly think they were all exaggerating. The first six seasons were just a little better, but the seventh is still very good and touching. You definitely need this season to comlete your Avonlea series. It is still worth the money and I am very glad I invested in this one. I highly recommend this and all the other seasons!

5.0 out of 5 stars 7 was a delight! June 4 2008
By Janet C. Ross - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I kept reading the reviews and was afraid to get this set, but after seeing it, I can't belive the reviews have been so negative. This has been delightful!!!! It's more like the first couple of series. It was light and cheery! I would recomend this for any who love the fun of these shows and not fuss over where Sara and Felicity are. I was saddened that they didn't resolve what happened to Gus' Mom, though.

2.0 out of 5 stars 4 of 13 episodes are worthwhile. June 19 2008
By Reliable Reviews Too - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
"Road to Avonlea" is my favorite series. Seasons 1-5 and portions of season-6 were brilliant. "Anne of Green Gables" was excellent. That brilliance was lost in season-7.

The charming original Cecily has been replaced. The well-liked Chef Pierre La Pierre does not appear except for 5-seconds. The well-liked original Malcom and the original Morgan Pettibone have been replaced. Sarah is squeezed into the end of the last episode as a guest at the party. The series has constantly brought in new writers and new directors, and previously was able to maintain a standard of personality, warmth, and humor in the scripts, arising from the excellent writers, Suzette Couture, Heather Conkie, and Hart Hanson. This season's scripts do not carry on that personality, warmth, and humor. Felix and Felicity seem unhappy to be here. They are very serious, in great contrast to their joy, charm, and expression as children. The episodes do not fit together. This season's scripts do not plus comedy on the same thought, or build upon a theme, each script is scattered, unfocused. Maybe the cast and crew became unhappy with new management; or like the producer, became busy elsewhere, and their thoughts were elsewhere. None of the scripts reach the level of "excellent" reached in earlier seasons. This season is disappointing. There is so little on TV that is good, that I give 2-stars for the wholesome format, past greatness, and the 4 pleasant episodes. However, 4-episodes, without the humor and excellence of earlier seasons, should price season-7 at $20 or less.

The "behind-the-scenes" is a preview of the series, "Wind At My Back", and some very short behind-the-scenes that you have already seen if you have bought the prior seasons' DVD's. Nothing new. Someone has truth issues.

Episodes:
1. There are no stories about Felicity and the orphanage for having devoted this whole episode to deciding to start an orphanage. Felicity's dating a new boyfriend does not work with a picture of Felicity and Gus getting married on the cover of the DVD. The episode is like talking about something that is not particularly interesting with someone you like; ok, but uneventful.
2.
Olivia and Jasper display charm, thoughtfulness, and romance in scenic surroundings; which makes the episode worthwhile. The writers should have done more stories with the established, likeable Izzy Pettibone, and Olivia and Jasper. Izzy is quite expressive, but, her boyfriend Felix is impassive (without expression). Thus, Izzy & Felix have none of the chemistry of Olivia and Jasper. Good morals between Izzy and Felix are promoted.
3.
Davey and the bad carnival people. Davey's infatuation with the carnival mermaid. Written for six year-old minds; unbelievable and mindless. None of the characters are themselves. A poor episode.
4.
Izzy's unusual Aunt comes to visit. A different Morgan Pettibone breaks believability in a story about the Pettibone family. However, this story is interesting about Izzy and her extravagant aunt who owns a shop that sells beautiful hats. Izzy's aunt believes every girl should have a beautiful hat.
5.
Aunt Abigail comes to visit. A different Malcom and Cecily break believability. If the producer was unable to acquire the original actors, he should have left these characters out entirely. The person who decided to replace well-liked actors, has likely had several divorces without a thought. The humor is unsuccessful. The story is unlikely. Some may enjoy seeing the characters they like in a script without interest.
6.
Big city Broadway songwriters come to town. The script fails to portray the songwriters likeably. Guest singers should have appeared for a musical episode fitting the theme. A better song for Alec who does sing well. Selena Dale diverts precious time from the regular characters in a promising theme that never takes off.
7.
An older, woman, guest is demanding, which fits in a story about Felix overbooking the hotel. Rather than plus this, the writer changes this woman to an end-of-the-world, crazy guest, which says we are changing the story to... confusion. An example of the otherwise excellent writer, straying from theme in a story about Felix taking on too much to handle. Promising but uneventful.
8.
Contest between schools. The episode is pleasant, but does not have the charm and humor of earlier seasons.
9.
Two orphans from England pull pranks. Constant, unpleasant disputes prevent this episode from being anything but fair. There is no balance of warmth, fun, and likeable characters.
10.
Ninety-one year-old, Great Aunt Winifred is depressed and troubled and comes to visit. A dreary story. A poor episode.
11.
Felicity and Hetty travel to South Carolina in search of Gus. Worthwhile.
12.
Two townspeople try to persuade the town of Avonlea to sell the cannery to the town of Carmody and move the school there, and move the railroad line for profit for the two. Characters we like in a story that is not bad, but not good.
13.
Felicity marries Gus. Good only because the King family and Sarah are all here, and because Gus and Felicity finally get married. Not as good as it could have been. Sarah is squeezed in at the end, as a guest at the party, in a story about others.

6.
Big city Broadway songwriters come to town. Could have been much better, if the songwriters were portrayed more likeable. The second plot with Selena Dale is a second guest-plot, which is one too many guest-plots in a limited time, sacrificing needed depth with the regular characters. They should have brought in good singers for a musical. Needed a better song for Alec, who does sing well.
