The Downton Abey series is very entertaining. The attention to detail about the lifestyles both upstairs and the serving class downstairs is fascinating. I loved the character development that enhances the story and draws in the audience. The quips between the characters are great.
My Mom and I have watched it several times, and we always catch something that we previously missed.

English drama and Humor at its best!
Downton Abbey is the number one viewed series on PBS, and certainly has earned that honor. Step back in time to a world of castles, servants and the suspense that is created in the lives of the privileged and the lives of the servants. Some call this the soap opera of England. I think that degrades it immensely. The suspense, the love, the joy and every other human emotion is wrapped with humor. You will love Maggie Smith and her dry sarcastic remarks. I rate this as one of the series that I will keep in my DVD library forever. I can hardly wait until the season starts again. I have all three seasons so far, and I love them all!

The Saga Continues. The Addiction is Still There!
The saga continues in the Second Year of this great British drama. We become embroiled in WWI and see scenes of a very real war front.
No one is exempt from the war--both servants and royalty are drawn into it with a sense of loyalty to the Crown. Our hero from the first season, Matthew Crawley (Dan Stevens), of course, is an officer. Two of the servants from Downton become his assistants--Thomas and William. We sit on the edge of our seats hoping that they will make it through unscathed, as we actually care what happens to them.
Meanwhile, back at the home front, even the royals become involved in the war effort. Daughter Sybil becomes a nurse in a hospital treating the wounded. Daughter Edith learns to drive and goes to work on a farm. Eventually, Downtown Abbey starts housing the wounded as they recover much to the chagrin of Dowager Countess Violet (Maggie Smith). She continues to steal every scene that she is in.
The romance between Mary (Michelle Dockery) and Matthew (Dan Stevens) becomes even more complicated as he proposes to a Londoner Lavinia Swire, and Mary retaliates by doing the same with a pre-Photoplay gossip magazine publisher--Sir Richard Carlisle.
And the downstairs romance between Anna (Joanne Froggatt) and John Bates (Brendan Coyle) continues as his estranged wife makes her ugly appearance and really stirs things up.
We actually hate footman Thomas as he wrangles his way out of serving in the war and then works his way to becoming Carson's boss. And we actually detest O'Brien, Lady Crawley's maid, who is constantly making choices that get other people in trouble.
We are just as entranced with this dvd as we were with the first. Beautifully photographed and marvelously scored, it is just as good as the initial series.
Now we await Series Three.
You will not be disappointed with either of these dvds.Read full review

Downton Abbey is an excellent series
Even though "Downton Abbey," has received much critical acclaim, I had not heard about the series when I originally bought Season 1 at a local store. I made that purchase because I enjoy period pieces like Pride and Prejudice, Jane Eyre, Emma, and Gosford Park. I recognized many of the actors in the cast, from other movies, and knew they delivered great performances. As soon as I finished season 1, I wanted to see season 2. I purchased the second season on ebay, because it was less than half the cost of buying it locally. Julian Fellowes' Downton Abbey, seasons 1 & 2, are that perfect combination of great writing (wonderful plots, subplots and character development), great acting performances, directing, costuming, and location.
The period piece is set in an English estate just prior to World War 1. It follows the everyday lives of Lord Grantham's family, and those that serve them in the manor. It is throughly entertaining. If you enjoy a wonderful story that covers a full range of human experiences, performed by an amazing cast, then you may find yourself very caught up in the story of those that live at Downton Abbey.
There is nothing I do not like about this Masterpiece Classic, except that season 3 is not yet available. It has not been released. So everyone who enjoys this series will have to wait to see what happens next.
I would buy this product again. Actually, I am buying it again in the near future as a Christmas gift for someone who enjoys the same type of entertainment that I do.Read full review
