Set in the fictional Downton Abbey, stately home of the Earl of Grantham, early in the reign of King George V, during the two years prior to the Great War and commencing with news of the sinking of the Titanic, an event that triggers much of the storyline.

I can't say enough good things about this show. I just love it. I love the characters, and I love the time period. It's just a winner all around!

There are too many characters, the plots are sometimes obnoxiously convoluted, and most of the dialogue is inane, but this is a wonderful show even if you're not usually one for period drama. By the time you figure out who everybody is, you feel like part of the family -- the ups and downs will truly hit you in the heart.

And any review of Downton Abbey would be remiss without mentioning the goddess who is Maggie Smith. The stories in the later seasons might not pack as much of a punch as they used to, but as long as Maggie Smith is on screen it's worth watching.

A superbly executed period Drama, Downton Abbey weaves its way through the early 20th century English peerage while inter-spersing it with the parallel lives of the people who serve them. Wonderful casting and direction!

I'm such a sucker for historical dramas and this one is so fantastic. And surprisingly funny, considering. I can curl up with a cup of tea and a fire in the fireplace and just watch it for hours.

Very enjoyable period drama. The acting and quality of production are top-class.

Didn't get me hooked right away and I'm still not completely loving it. But it's well written and it gives a very convincing look on how the era really was
