This looks like so much fun!


I watched the first episode, then never made it back for any others (who knew my Sunday nights were so busy!) Now you've reminded me to jump back in :) I loved seeing the interactions between the household staff and the costumes!!


Just finished it and loved it, was sad that it ended. I did read that the next season is in production and will appear in the UK in the fall and in the US winter 2012.

Ah, winter 2012 is too long to wait, but it is nice to have a known release date.


I was living in the UK for the first several episodes and then I got the DVD set for Christmas from my friend in London! LOOOOOVE the clothes and, oh! the HATS!
It was a huge phenomenon in the UK-- news articles, everyone talking about it.
I can't wait for the next season-- that Lady Mary is Just. Too. Much.


O, I love it, too & anticipated each episode every week! Maggie Smith is the greatest! Can't wait for the next release!! I was so pleased that you liked it & posted your review!


I loved this series too-- we had recently watched Manor House (a sort or reality show/experiment- get it on Netflix) and I think I appreciated/enjoyed Downton Abbey more because of it.

I think Lady Mary has more than an inkling that she's so snotty, and hates herself for it- just my opinion, tho.


umm. sybil is defss the youngest sister. and you aren't supposed to hate Edith you're supposed to feel sorry for her. she's the ugly that even the parents care little for. they even say it. i love mary's character although she is definitely the bitchiest one. edith though is the typical neglected middle child

Kathy Zadrozny

Oops, you are right about me mixing up the two sisters. I have fixed my error. I do remember the mother saying a comment to the grandmother about Ediths looks; it was sad to hear. If I remember correctly, Lady Edith overheard it as well, which adds to the horribleness of it.

Wow, that looks wonderful! And you got to love the old cars there. They look really sexy yet also big and masculine. I saw a few episodes of this series online and I got to tell you, they really pay attention to detail and accuracy.
