    Another Good Season

    If you are a Downton Abby fan like me this season will not disappoint. Anna and Mr. Bates continue on with the drama from last seasons horrible events that will not leave these two to move forward. And of course "poor Edith" continues on trying to keep the secret of her daughter....honestly though I absolutely hate the way she treats the woman who 'adopted' and loves her daughter. I understand how Edith must feel, but she is just totally selfish with the way she handles the people who tried to help her the most in this situation. I found the series finale wonderful after being exhausted by these two storylines. There is an impending marriage that I am so looking forward to seeing next season. I enjoyed being able to power watch this season and not miss the shows (Walking Dead) that are on at the same time. Another great season to add to my collection.

    I find it hard to watch certain shows on weekly TV versus purchasing the show outright on Blu-ray - Downton Abby is one of those shows. My wife and I binge watched season 5 over two nights and now we're ready to watch it again at a slower pace and savor the dialog. This set does include the Christmas show - but not the "Manners of Downton" which I was hoping it would. This was a very satisfying season - lots of romance from both upstairs and downstairs with good development of characters and interpersonal actions. The actors are so superb in their rolls that it seems that you're there as a 3RD person observer.

    This season of Downton, like all seasons, provided lots of change and unique challenges for each character. There were moments this season where I found myself almost liking Edith. Who'd have thought?! I wish the wait between seasons wasn't so long but at least the blu-ray is available to watch and re-watch! As for the actual features on the blu-ray, I do wish there were more of them. I'm a sucker for bloopers and I wish some had been included on this. One of the features focuses on day 100 of shooting and that one was fun to watch because you get to see a whole 'nother side of Mrs. Hughes (Phyllis Logan)!

    Downton Abbey breathes new life into history

    Although I personally preferred the first 4 series above this one, it is still a compelling series. Some plot lines seemed to hint of future circumstances in series six. The leaving and coming of new characters seem to be paving the way for new conflicts facing this family come WWII. Julian Fellowes has taken in between years and made the best of them without drowning the viewer in politics, which truthfully, could have enriched the plot lines. That being said, this is THE only period drama available to starving Americans yearning for this standard of writing and acting on this side of the pond.

    Excellent dramatic series of a British family starting before WW I but not just any family. They live in a castle & are rich & powerful. The best thing about this series is that the viewer gets to watch the interaction between Lord, Lady & servant staff sort of like "Upstairs Downstairs" and there is just as much drama downstairs as is upstairs. Great cast, direction, writing. Actress Maggie Smith has all of the best lines & words of advice. Recommended to all.

    There's no letdown in the 5th season of Downton Abbey from the previous four. I greatly enjoyed the story of the titled Crawley family and those who served them as they sailed through the period of the colorful Roaring 20s. There were some surprises in the issues introduced for the times--the rise of the Labor government, interfaith marriage, advent of radio outreach, Russian emigres, etc. Great entertainment with history lessons to boot!

    AMAZING!!! Series 5 does not disappoint! If you've been a fan of the show to this point, you'll love this series and all the new plot twists. Honestly, better than Series 4 (which was good in the first few episodes post-Matthew, but kind of lagged toward the end). Every episode of this series is better than the one previous, you'll be watching and crying and squealing with glee until the very last moment of the Christmas episode!

    Take me back to the Edwardian era of life. The stately manners, the household staff, the days of elegance and grace. A peek into the life of the nobility and rich and where everyone fit into the social strata - the household staff and the family. It is worth watching and enjoying. It is good ole fashion entertainment which is presented well. You will not regret watching.
