      This is the first time I bought a TV Series having never watched it before. I read many positive reviews about Downton Abby and decided to give it a go. Wow!!! I can't even express enough how good this show is. I have been transported back in time starting with the sinking of the Titanic..to the Great War..to the 20's...and its been a fantastic journey!!!This show is so well done...beautiful to watch..at an age well before PCs..cell phones..and even the telephone which was introduced with the staff not knowing how to use it!!!! The acting is beyond excellent. The 4th season which is a big part of this positive review doesn't disappoint. I don't want to give any plots away but the 4th season started with sorrow and ended with hope...I can't wait for the 5th season!!!! You won't be disappointed with this DVD. The entire series is a purchase worth owning.

      Best season yet. Unpredictable plot lines.

      Fascinating stories of how characters face & struggle with (not solve) the problems that emerge from stringent, aristocratic standards which can no longer judge & condemn the world as society changes due to war, the resulting economy, and how individuals seek independence & individual expression apart from tradition & its norms. The plot lines serve as interesting lenses not only for these struggles in the last century, but Aldo as inspiring dialogue for how we ought to view & rise to the occasion for the same challenges facing us today. Not just stories shout post World War I Britain, but narrative platforms to launch our own imagination for how to contend with the same desires & drives for freedom everywhere.

      The Further Adventures of the Crawley Family

      Still reeling from the loss of two beloved family members, the Crawley family faces even further woes in the form of crumbling finances. The "Old World" ways that have existed for generations at Downton Abbey simply don't work in the modern world of post-Great War Britain! Will the Earl of Grantham realize that Downton needs to modernize before it's too late? Will the loss of their beloved family members forever change the faces around the family dining table? Will the Dowager Countess continue to be a source of zingy one-liners? Tune in to Series 4, that's British for Season 4, to find out!

      Not the Best Season for Downton

      Well, I've never been a huge fan of _Downton Abbey_, but I love all of the actors so I always catch every season of _Downton_. The dialogue is really bad in this season, but the actors deliver them so well! How do they do it? Anyway, there are numerous plot points that just get way too melodramatic or absurd. Then again, that's you would expect from this show, though. It was interesting to see that the show could still go on without one of its main characters from the first three seasons. Mary's character really shines in this season. Recommended for _Downton_ fans.

      Gorgeous to look at. Storytelling flaws emergent

      It's Season 4: you love this show. The Blu ray version is definately worth the extra price (particularly when On Sale). Downton Abbey is a Blu ray showcase: the sets, the acting, etc. At Issue: Change has definately come to the series. Original cast members have left, leaving gaps. While still gorgeous to look at, writer Julian Fellowes (actor, The Monarch of the Glen) has chosen a new direction. The Geopolitical issues he is now taking on have replaced the writing of good interpersonal stories.

      This show is apparently the equivalent of visual crack. My wife and daughter love it. I don't understand why. It makes reading the newspaper seem like riding a rollercoaster. I tried sitting through one of my wife's benders on this show and I actually chuckled at one of the dry remarks and felt so dirty I had to go shower. Despite my feelings on it, it must be a good show, since my wife somehow got my daughter and mother-in-law hooked on it.

      As the story progresses over the seasons, the distance between the aristocracy and the "hired help" seems to narrow. The servants reveal more and more their life stories, dreams and aspirations and the wealthy show a willingness to "get their hands dirty" in doing the work it will take to save the estate for future generations. The relationships are always interesting. The costuming continues to be stunningly beautiful, as are the sets/scenery.

      I like that it has the other characters stories going on.I also like that that its not vulgar language or violence.There is manors in it. Loyalty among some of the servants with each other and there bosses and some of the bosses with some of their servants. Makes you wish that the older servants that seem to admire each other some how show a little affection with each other is shown which they did towards the end makes you fill good.
