The sweeping Downton Abbey saga continues, beginning six months after the unexpected death of Matthew Crawley, heir to Downton Abbey, husband to Lady Mary, and brand new father to a baby boy and successor, in a car accident. Although it is the 1920s, Britain still observes mourning rituals that are almost Victorian in their solemnity. Nonetheless, life goes on at Downton Abbey and the Crawleys are beginning to snap out of it.

I probably shouldn't admit that I only planned on watching the first episode or two of the series to see if I'd like it, and I wound up watching all 6 seasons in one week. But, well. There ya' go.

An engrossing series following the Crawley family and their servants. Treats everyone with respect, no caricatures here.

Yep, plenty of trials and tribulations. New characters keep the relationships fresh.

I used to love Downton Abbey. But in season 4 they spent who knows how much to bring in Kiri Te Kanawa the famous opera singer to play Nellie Melba the famous opera singer, who was too big a star to play house parties. to play a house party, the only dramatic purpose of which was to drag everyone into one room so that Anna Bates, a beloved character, could be brutally raped in the kitchen of a house where otherwise no one ever had any expectation of privacy and her screams couldn't possibly not be heard. That's just cheap, sleazy soap opera emotional manipulation, not respectable drama.

This is a wonderful series! The acting is superb, Maggie Smith is fabulous, as always. Each character is played as though he or she is a person you know. Sometimes it's 'laugh-out-loud' funny, and sometimes a tear rolls down my cheek. I look forward to further series.

Fabulous of course, one thing I do is watch it with closed captions so I don't miss a word of dialogue while taking in the costumes, jewelry, furnishings and plot lines. karen

My Wife and I enjoyed it. It is better than the faux reality shows.

A time that no longer exists.........
