Season two returns as the Great War rages across Europe, and not even the serene Yorkshire countryside is free from its effects. The men and women of Downton are doing their part both on the front lines and the home front, but the intensity of war only serves to inflame the more familiar passions of love, loss, blackmail, and betrayal.

My absolute favorite show ever! So amazing!!!

Great drama about British culture with an upstairs / downstairs perspective. The Earl and his family (upstairs) live in a fancy mansion and indulge in all sorts of silly scheming. The folk downstairs; servants, cooks, valets, etc. have their own drama and scheming going on. Maggie Smith is brilliant as the old Auntie. The Earl is trying to figure out who can inherit the fancy estate under a restrictive will, the silly daughters are rather clueless. Great acting ensemble! Series 1 starts with the sinking of the Titanic, Series 2 starts off with WWI. Excellent, interesting show. If you missed it while it was on t.v. (like me) be sure to watch the these DVDs.

So much silly fun! Rated G - educational! All historically accurate - and then there is Maggie Smith at her best!

I too never watched it while it was running and decided to see what all the fuss was about. I'm actually glad I waited to see it on dvd because then I don't have to wait too long to see the next episode! What a WONDERFUL program. Maggie Smith is incomparable (as always). I love the humor and the drama. I'm only on Season 2 and have Seasons 3 and 4 on hold (good thing I'm on vacation this week). This will be a program I'll need to purchase so I can enjoy it more than once.

My friends watch this show a lot and I never used to. I decided to give it a try and see why they loved it so much and I can see why. This show is amazing!!! Definitely one of my top favorites. The acting is very good and I like how they focus on both floors of the household. The servants and the wealthy. It adds fun twists to the story. I am already through season three. Yay!!! So sad that it is finished it was a good show.

Please make sure to watch the Episode titled "Christmas At Downton Abbey" on disc 3. I thought it was a special feature, and was going to skip it, but it is, in fact, the season finale, and extremely important

The series starts out as a fun story, but the more I watched this portrayal of the lives of the rich and powerful, the more I wanted them to just go away.

The acting was good, the story of wealth is nasty.

Somewhat in the vein of Upstairs, Downstairs, but set in a country house so the downstairs staff is expanded. Kind of night-time-soap-operaish in spots, but entertaining, historically accurate and well-done nonetheless.

The perfect TV series for those of us who loved movies like The Other Boleyn Girl, Ever After, or the TV series The Tudors.
