I am a fan of the "Downton Abbey" series on PBS, and I'm awaiting the next season. It was recommended that I might also like "Upstairs Downstairs", so I did purchase it on eBay. It's a bit different from Downton, but a wonderful story with such colorful characters, and I love it!
The costumes are not as grand as those in Downton, but still very good period costumes. I also purchased "Grand Hotel" which is in the same period and enjoyed that, as well. I think Downton is better all around, but Upstairs is a very close second. I'm very, very happy with my purchase.
After getting caught up watching all three seasons of "Downton Abbey" we found ourselves wanting more of the Brit's!
Well, this series has not failed us up to this point. You must remind yourself though when it was filmed (1971-1975) and that at the first of the series when filming there was a workers strike leaving a lot of season one in black and white. Are the pictures a little fuzzy at times - yes. Is the audio a little hard to hear at times - yes but you must understand that this was not originally shot in Dolby-Digital High Definition and no one should expect it. What you can expect is a lot of wonderful writing and acting for it's time. The lives that are intertwind between the Lord's and Ladies of the house with their staff, the owners and all of their acquaintences, and especially the staff and all of their lives make this a good follow-up to "Downton" - some might even say for it's time it is very "racey" in parts. We would highly recommend purchasing this dvd set. Sit back, relax, and enjoy another great series by our friends from accross the "big pond"! Cheers!
My husband was born and educated in London England. He migrated to Canada and then to the States in his thirties. He is a fan of this series and I bought it for him. He is gravely ill and we plan to watch it together. I have not seen it in the past. I am looking forward to enjoying this great british production.
While I was skeptical the first few black and white episodes, I was taken in by the stunning acting and costume historial of london and its call structure. This is one of the best and most memorable series I will see in my lifetime and will certainly revisit it. London class structure at first seemed like slavery to me, but then you come to understand the servants are just part of the family that make the lord, lady and children of the households lives upheld with the norms of societies expections at that time. There is the most memorable scenes of the son falling into reckless decline during ww1 and the historical sinking of the titanic and the severe loss of an entire peerage and the grief you can experience with deep sorrow and you can actually feel what is was like to be there in that moment.
Hooked on anything British. This is one of the best series I've ever watched. I would recommend Upstairs Downstairs to everyone. I also bought Thomas and Sarah.
