My friend tried on countless occassions to get me to watch this show. I always refused but one day he put on a couple of episodes for me and when I came home, i binged watched the rest. This is a great show and something I never thought I would watch!

Was "Downton Abbey" a good show? Not really. Especially as it progressed, it was all cliched characters and, frankly, pretty dumb writing. And yet, it was incredibly watchable. And GIFable. I don't think I'll ever rewatch an episode, but I could stare at Maggie Smith GIFs for hours.

Very nice show for fans of period costume bits and British aristocracy. I thought the first seasons included better plot lines and maybe more controversial topics than later episodes. As with many very long running tv shows, the the story arcs seemed to flatten out and become rather soapy. Still, by the time they had run out of interesting ideas, I was already seriously hooked on the gorgeous dresses and props of the early twentieth century they presented by the cartload, so I couldn’t have stopped watching anyway ^^ All in all, while it wasn't exactly thrilling, it was still always very entertaining.

A truly fantastic show, I am sad to see it go. There is a wonderful depth to the characters represented by differences in class and circumstances. You care what happens to them, which can be hard for a show to create. It is also a good representation of what life can bring, the good and bad, regardless of your station in life.
