Customer Reviews

One of the best dramas on television right now

I was about to say this is the best period drama I've ever seen, but why limit it to period dramas? This is a brilliant drama about its characters, first and foremost. Even the most despicable of them (and there are a few fun ones!) are humanized and believable to such a degree that only a few scenes after you curse them, you're pitying or routing for them! So many people caught in a moment of change, between old ways and new, an old class system that had its flaws and a new one that nobody yet understands. It is rich in tiny historical touches that make you feel as though you now really understand what it was like to live then, to be a servant or a master, the obligations and horrors and sometimes happinesses that came to all stations of life.

But then, if you're already a fan of costume drama, or masterpiece theater, you probably don't need convincing. To those who are less used to this genre, you need not be a fan of history to appreciate the excellent writing, pitch-perfect acting, and sprawling storytelling here. If you like good TV, chances are you'll like Downton Abbey

Great show - why does US iTunes only have 4 episodes - UK has 7

Great show, but I have a complaint about availability - I dont understand why there are only 4 episodes on the US iTunes store but there are 7 on the UK store. I just spent 15 pounds on a UK iTunes gift certificate and UK iTunes account to be able to download shows 5,6,7.

I wish they would just make all episodes available in US as well...

It is amazing

Never wrote a review but I just had to for Downton Abbey. Regret that the first series is over, enjoyed every minute of it. Can't wait for the second series.
Maggie Smith you rock!!
