Simply beautiful to watch. This show is really well written with great characters on both sides of the upstairs/downstairs divide. Some story lines can be a little dull (did anyone really care about who won the village flower show?) but on the whole a very entertaining series.

I began watching this show as a lark. Period piece shows typically don't hook me much unless the characters are great. Well guess what, these characters are just that.

Even now though i still laugh at myself, oh the episode where the high drama was " she has a typewriter "...

There are time it feels like a soap opera, there are times where you think something awful is going to happen ( every time you see a horse ) but the show really does present a great upstairs/ downstairs story and as i said the characters are very good.

Downton Abbey's depth and exploration of class schisms in England allows for the growth of an excellent and interesting period drama. It explores social problems of the era as well as a clash between conservative and liberal thought. It also takes a look at the changing political views of the time. Overall, Downton Abbey is here to stay. Its acting, writing, and gorgeous scenery will be more than enough for viewers.

I held off watching the series for the longest time and went into binge mode once it had concluded. This is one of the best drama series I have ever watched, and I regret not getting caught up in all the excitement throughout.

BEST FINALE EVER! all those wonderful characters got resolution in logical manners. I was right about losing an old friend!

The conclusion will be like losing an old friend or ten or twenty...the characters are so varied and delightfully flawed to showcase important issues that are TIMELESS...marriage, children, homosexuality, morals, culture, role of women and servants and aristocracy. It shows us the demeaning situation of working class people in an era that seems all too current.

I love how this show keeps me hooked even when there aren't any worldshifting things happening (like in many of the shows I watch). The characters are very interesting and while the story hasn't as many twists as other shows airing, it is still very interesting and keeps me wanting more. I am sure season 6 will be a satisfying end to a very nice ride.
