TV Show Review: Downton Abbey

Totally Pointless

This show is amazing. Most people, probably all over the world, have herd about this show. It centers around a Dutch and Dutchess’s family along with the staff that runs the estate. Lord Grantham is the main man of the house, but really his butler, Carson, runs the show. Lord and Lady Grantham have three daughters, which at the start of the shows are all teachers. Lord Grantham’s mother also is main facet to the show.

One of the main reasons why I love this show is the time period a of the show. The early 20th century was a time of great change all over the world. It brilliantly displays the progression of the old world to the new world. I had the oppertunity this past Christmas to actually see some on the costumes used in the show first hand. The amount of detail that goes into each costume in so short of time is truely amazing. Currently Downton Abby is on its fifth season. I’m not sure how long it’s going to last becuase it now takes place in the mid 1920s. I would love to hear your thoughts on this show if any of you watch it.

  1. I love Downton Abbey! I have not seen any of the fifth season mainly because the airtimes are not good times in Montana and I am cheap so I will wait for Amazon Prime to have it. It is a great series and I love how the characters have to change to adapt to the changing world.

  3. Downton’s first three seasons are its strongest. I do feel like the show’s not going to last much longer, but as long as Maggie Smith is in it I’ll still be watching. It gets a bit soap opera-y after a while, and some of the characters who grow revert back to their old ways, which I find quite stupid of the writers, but I still like Downton Abbey, despite a couple of the controversial arcs. I def recommend you keep watching, though.
