Sarah Polley stars as Sara Stanley in "TALES FROM AVONLEA", the series based on Lucy Maud Montgomery's work about a young girl's coming of age in a new environment. While there are elements that seem similar to "LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE", this series is actually more realistic and offers better acting, cinematography and storylines. That's not to say it's unpredictable. It's not, however, there's a familiarity here that also brings a smile and Polley is terrific in the main role.
All 13 episodes of Season One are included here.
BUENA VISTA has provided the original 1.33:1 aspect ratio for this release. Color quality varies, but is always adequate. Unfortunately, colors are never rich, and the transfer lacks the detail that the exotic locations deserve. Contrast is adequate. There are some minor artifacts appearing throughout.
BUENA VISTA has provided a Mono mix, that while lacking in overall fidelity, doesn't cause problems with dialogue intelligibility.
