Downton Abbey: A Review

Oh heart breaks for her.  I really hope she tells Mr. Bates.  And perhaps even Lady Mary.  Keeping that inside is going to eat her alive.  Isn't it remarkable that little has changed between the days of Downton and today when it comes to the shame and destruction of sexual assult?!

Tom.  My second favorite character, just behind Anna.  So is it a secret that he used to be downstairs and now he's upstairs?  I didn't realize that until last week that it wasn't widely known.  Interesting!  I hope he has a little love interest, not in the form of a Downton employee, this year.  I also hope we get to see the kids more often.  Quick question...does he have a valet?  I don't recall seeing one but I can't imagine he is without one.

Lady Mary gets proposed to a week after meeting Lord Gillingham.  What the what?!  He's in love with her after what...three days of conversation?  Two of which were at her parent's house?  Filled with a dozen other guests.  Crazy.

Rose.  I have read that she is a least favorite character of many but I've liked her since day one.  She's feisty and perky.  She lightens up the show.  And her wardrobe is fantastic!

Edith continues to bore me to tears.  Yawn.  They killed off the wrong sister.  Bring back Sybil!

And finally, I will leave you with something a girlfriend posted last week on Facebook.  I will never understand why they can't just dress themselves.  I've been so caught up in the show for years that I never really pondered that they in fact, cannot dress themselves.  How bizarre!  I wonder at what point it finally became in fashion to put on your own pants?  Oh the burden!

Such a joy to watch Downton Abbey. This is a sign of that time is passing quickly: I watch PBS and there isn't a muppet involved!!

"Honestly, Papa. Edith's about as mysterious as a bucket."
Best line of the episode, and so true! I read some spoilers and it sounds as though they are trying to give her an "interesting" storyline for the rest of the season. But let's be honest, Edith could make anything boring.

I have been a loyal Downton Abbey fan since the series started but I have been less than thrilled with the story lines this year. I almost wish they would have ended it after Mary had her baby last year, and Matthew would not have died. I agree with how boring Edith and her story line is...I miss Sybil too!
