I just downloaded the first season without any expectations. I needed something to watch while waiting for the next season of Game of Thrones. I am shocked with the great character developments and plots in this series. It's such a great show, and I just can't stop watching it.
great show, i cant wait for season 2
Finally learning what all the fuss is about. Terrific characters. A great series.
this season is great, but i need help, all of my films will not import into my account, and ive tried to re import it and it will say error 50, so if you could help me that would be GREAT!!! ( :
Downloaded the 1st episode of season 1 and started watching it but was so bored I stopped. And they call this a drama?
I have just finished from watching this season it's a great show , love it ! 👍
The dialog From start to the last word!
Love them. Hate them. Recommended binge watching!
It's obvious we are all (UK & USA) in love with this time period....isn't it time to make a follow-up movie to Gosford Park!!!! That was such a fantastic movie that a person can watch over & over without it ever getting old. Look at how well this Series is doing, we are all addicted. Maggie Smith, we need her character in the part two as she is so funny and makes us all laugh. She is such a beam of light & a rare Gem. I just had to get this off my chest. Come on everybody..Like so they will see & have something else to watch while they are making these episodes :-)
Both my mom and I love watching this show! I don't live at home anymore, but when I go to visit we'll watch this until the sun comes up. Unfortunatly, we're done watching all of the seasons and we can't wait until the next season comes out in January 2014!!!
This is simply teh best TV on TV. We can not wait to watch it very Sunday night.
Thoroughly enjoyable. Highly recommended.
It reminds me of home...................Brilliant!
Watched the first season in a weekend. It is really well written, well acted and very witty. Love love love DA.
This is wonderful cast. Maggie Smith and Jim Carter are amazing. The english humor will keep you laughing.
This is the first series that I've bought that is worth keeping & watching over & over again. Maggie Smith alone is worth the price. Every twist & plot turn has been interesting. Now have to get season 2.
Bravo to the British for an intelligent, warm, rich, vastly interesting and entertaining character driven series. I was captivated right from the start by the story and the characters and the rich tapestry of their lives woven together by great writing and superior acting. My only negative, and this is not much of a negative because imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, is the apparent similarities to "Gone With The Wind". Be that as it may I am happy I discovered this dramatic series and I will continue to watch it for as long as it is broadcast. I must also say the entire cast is without peer though Maggie Smith steals every single scene she graces with her presence. Again… well done!!!
Totally addictive and well made show. Bloody Brilliant as they say in Yorkshire.
A period drama set in the early 20th century before the outbreak of WWI, Abbey's script sparkles like champagne. Performed on a knife's edge, the show's polished plot-lines plunges viewers into the grips of a heart quickening psychological thriller rife with suspense and palace intrigue; ironically, in an actual palace. Acted flawlessly and delivered in the King's English the way it was meant to be spoken, crisply, like a freshly pressed collar, Abbey gleams with the understated sophistication of a crested set of antique cufflinks. From the elaborate sets and costumes, to the beautiful people inhabiting them both, fans of the show are treated to extravagance at every turn. Chauffeured right up to the cliff's edge each episode, one doesn't topple over, but rather, drifts downward, and floats in the padded comfort of Downton Abbey's majestic musical arrangements like a quilt being popped over spring grasses and pale heather for a mid-morning English picnic. Insulated by wealth and isolated by class, the Lords & Ladies roam free in our imaginations-that final bridge between fiction and fact.
Loved it!! Anxiously awaiting for Season Two. Great story and fantastic cast!
