Downton Abbey

I watched the first season of Downton Abbey.  I thought it was quite fabulous.  My main objection was the cliffhanger ending, but that should be resolved in the next installment.  I hope.

Downton Abbey is a historical drama, set in England from 1912 and on.  The cliffhanger ending is the announcement of war.  This is not a spoiler for anyone who knows a modicum of history.

The acting is good, the characters are interesting, and the scenery is quite lovely.  It’s worth checking out, that’s for sure.

    I caught “Downton Abbey” on PBS last month. I thought it was awesome too. I’m looking forward to the remake of “Upstairs Downstairs” to be broadcast later this year on Masterpiece.

    Have you been watching “Any Human Heart” on Masterpiece? I think Sunday’s installment is the 3rd and last episode. It is an another period BBC adaptation. Maybe you can find it on Netflix.

  3. I have not been watching Any Human Heart, but I looked it up and it looks interesting. I may have to acquire that somehow. Thanks for the heads-up! 🙂
