My niece received the first season of "Emily of New Moon" on DVD for Christmas. First off, I see from the reviews on amazon.com that the series is far different than the books. Still, my niece is concerned because she says the characters seem extremely and virulently anti-Catholic and stopped watching after a couple of episodes.
The priest is called (I believe she said) a Satan-worshipper and Catholics are continually referred to as "papists". While the priest is a sympathetic character, other Catholics are painted in bad light.
Has anyone seen the entire series and have an opinion to offer? I don't expect Protestant characters to be entirely sympathetic to Catholicism, but I hope the series isn't a continual attack on the Faith. I appreciate the feedback. Thanks!
