I saw the second season and liked it so much!!! also i have been thinking in Avonlea the fictional place where the story is settle originally by her author Montgomery, and let me the doubt if Nagita simply chose Avon to follow her... althouthg with Shakespeare´g books there is no option to think in a different place to upon Stratford

However i want to know if Montgomery thought in Avon´s river in Great Britain!

I just finished the second season as well. It has very little to do with the original story, but I enjoyed it.
I think they took homosexuality rather well considering they knew nothing about the world, lol.

One thing I found strange though, was Jerry saying to the bad guy his family was Catholic so they didn't keep alcohol at home, after the bad guy offered him to drink saying all frenchies drank (or something along the line).

1) I think the majority of "Frenchies" were Catholic then, who wasn't? Even those who weren't when they immigrated were kind of forced to change of religion, ppl from another religion were ostracized... unless they spoke English. Perhaps it was different outside Quebec, they are on Prince Edward Island after all....but Jerry has an accent from Quebec. Ok maybe they didn't mean that....not sure what is Jerry background, maybe they just wanted an actor who spoke French and didn't think some people would recognize the accent. Well it's not the Acadian accent or any other French accents near that place.
So coming back to our story, I believe the majority of French speakers then were Catholic. And yes Frenchies drank a lot.

2) Since when Catholic don't drink? Catholic countries produced wine for centuries. The priests drink wine during the mass. Even my very Catholic grand-parents, great-grand-parents drank and kept booze at home. I don't recall any interdiction unless it was during Lent. Apart that, they didn't had the right to eat meat on Friday, work on Sunday, have sex without being married (but nobody listened), looking at themselves in the mirror for too long...what else? Cinema on Sunday was forbidden, some danses, some books, porn, masturbation, contraception, divorce......plenty of things but I don't recall alcohol was being one of them...Damn even Jesus changed water into wine!

So Jerry saying they didn't keep alcohol at home because they were Catholic was really... unusual. Everybody kept at least dandelion wine at home for the priest visit.

Lot of French didn't know how to read and write, so I like Jerry couldn't either. The majority of my ancestors were illiterate as well. Lot of them were farmers and made their children work. There weren't a lot of schools far from the cities and Catholic church liked its people to stay ignorant.
