The sixth season stacked all of the discs on a single plastic peg. Both series display the best of British Theatre and Cinema, in terms of production teams, actors, technicians and general staff. Matthew continues to insist that his way of managing the estate is the correct one, but is he going to be able to do things the way he wants to or will he continue to meet resistence? There is no dull moment, due to a skillful editing of scenes that are almost put together like in an elegant dance sequence.

I must admit that the 1st thing that attracted me to this series was the theme music. The second series covers the years 1916 to 1919. Honestly what more can you ask for?? It is absolutely to be considered high quality movie-making, even though meant for the home screen. Mary and Matthew are keeping secrets from one another. Is there something in the wind which might make for a brighter future? I enjoyed the entire series and plan on rewatching the show. As Elizabeth McGovern and I are equal in age, and I have grown up watching her on the silver screen, hers was a warming and dignified touchstone for me personally.
There's a new young lady in the house now, Lady Rose, a cousin of the Granthams who is making her London debut her presentation at Buckingham Palace is marvelous. Mary is advised to take on a more active role in managing the estate with Tom as her counsellor. By 1989, though, Wallerstein had completely reversed his position. I am used to being transported back in time and held in thrall by an excellently written book, but honestly, a television series has never hit that mark for me. And with plenty more storylines hanging in the balance, writer Julian Fellowes is set to wrap up the popular drama in a glorious fashion. And Thomas continues to hold compromising information over Miss Baxter's head. Plus, you'll get free, two-day shipping on select Amazon orders.
I absolutely love this show, and so many of the characters, there are so many scenes that I rewind just to watch that particular scene. While beautifully made and well acted, we were shocked at the in-your-face homosexual relationship that popped up. Meanwhile the downstairs staff are left behind at Downton, where a trip to the local fair leads to trouble for Carson. The moment the first series ended, I wanted to see more--so no doubt I'll be ordering my copy of Season 2. Plus I love her in costume.
It's such a shame that with season 5 the show will end. In conclusion, Downton Abbey was a wonderful series thanks to the great cast and production values especially and I cannot wait to see more. Downton Abbey is a British period drama television series set in the Yorkshire country estate of Downton Abbey. Admittedly it isn't hard core drama - but it was lovely, it made me feel warm, it let me get all cross and annoyed in a nice way , it got me exited - and soothed. Carson reveals surprisingly intimate details of his former life, and a trip to the bright lights of London sees Rose put the reputation of the Crawleys in jeopardy. The Bosnian's were the real culprits! The lives and loves of the Grantham and the Crawly family are well-written and performed beautifully. Downstairs Mrs Patmore begins to feel the pressure of the large party.
Maggie Smith was perfect as Violet. Edith struggles with life-changing decisions. Meanwhile, the household staff in London is unable to compromise regarding a promised outing. Yes we know the history, yes we've seen a lot of it before and yes we know the 2nd series and I sincerely hope there is one will focus on the First World War but that, in part, is what makes it all the more exciting. Has Anna finally come across something which may help Bates be freed or will it come to nothing? All the better reason to catch up on your favorite episodes. Absolutely charming and acting and character development that is truly outstanding.
Mr Carson tells her she's letting herself be defeated by Matthew's death. Mrs Hughes urges Carson to let an old wound heal. I remember when Lady Marjorie Bellamy of Upstairs, Downstairs died on the Titanic and the impact it had on my family. In season five I found some of the situations and characters tedious and boring. Im a late starter with this show. As always, it's the wonderful cast that makes the series worth watching, especially Maggie Smith, Penelope Wilton, Michele Dockery, and Jim Carter.
Looking forward to the arrival of season 3! I am on episode four and can't wait for the remainder. The Darnleys are forced to sell their ancestral home, and Daisy's intervention at the Mallerton House auction has disastrous consequences. Just think of the nightmare to have a sudden dinner invitation. Violet finds herself having to play peacemaker as Robert and Cora have difficulties in their relationship. Every episode, every season is absolutely outstanding, delighting, enthralling, entertaining, captivating. Downton Abbey is filmed well with good costumes and scenery but overall the episodes are rather dull, moving slowly with little suspense.
I've enjoyed this show very much and made me think a little of the old English show Upstairs, downstairs. Before Old Lady Grantham channelled Wham! How will the members of the Crawley family and the staff deal with all the changes which may be taking place in their once-perfect world? As a cousin of an English family with deep affection for the monarchy and respect for the aristocracy, my perspective is an odd mix of Democratic ideals, old-time Republican values and curiosity about and appreciation of the social structure which prevailed so long in England. The threat of the war looms like a menacing shadow, you just know it's there but fear for and sympathise with the characters, wondering how their safe, secure and seemingly everlasting world will cope with the coming onslaught. Absolutely one of the most rewarding and richly satisfying shows from Great Britain that have come along in recent years. Carson must decide what to do with Thomas, whose future employment at Downton rests in his hands but Thomas may be surprised to find support from an unexpected quarter.
If applicable, we will notify you about this before processing your order. Unlike its series three counterpart, which had a glossy wedding and Shirley Maclaine to recommend it, this opening episode is a bleak affair. It's fluff at best, with some entertaining bits and pieces. Even the rich are servants to their fellowman. We picked up right away on the insinuation of a relationship between the two men, there was no need to add such an offensive scene.
