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.
