Where did this Reading Rainbow network come from, bringing us Masterpieces like Sherlock, and now Downton Abbey? Set in the unsettling early 1900s, since never has the aristocracy and their servants with their romance issues and financial problems been so interesting, mysterious, dramatic and funny.

Acquaint yourself with the fascinating members of the aristocratic Crawley family, the extensive staff that work for them, and witness how personal and historical events affect their lives and the era they live in. The writers of this series are so accomplished that every character is so well defined that it’s impossible to believe they exist only on film. If I had to single out the person that most amuses me, it would have to be Maggie Smith, who literally steals every scene she’s in with her demeanour and wit. The scripts, sets and costumes are all faultless, and the acting is superlative. With beautiful stories ranging from enduring love and friendship, to heartbreak and war, everything is tastefully written and filmed, then served on a silver platter. There are truly no words adequate enough to describe just how wonderful this show is, and what a joy it is to watch. Take a step back in time and immerse yourself in the glorious story telling that is Downton Abbey. You may never want to leave.

Good acting, pretty good plot but the take forever just to "get to the point". Show feels very draw out and there are too many characters and side plots, making it hard to keep up. If it didn't "go so slow" I would probably watch it.

I started watching this show after the last season started on TV as I heard a lot off talk about it. People were saying they couldn't wait to see it. I didn't think it would be my sort off thing as set in the olden days with me being only 32 but after Poldark I thought if I liked that and it was set in the olden days I may like this and with all the talk about it from young and old I thought why not try it and by half way through season 1 I was hooked.I would highly recommend this show to all ages. I love seeing how they lived years ago.
