Season 1 cast?
Since this is my first makala on this periodical drama, I will write down the reasons on why I upendo Downton Abbey.

Interesting Story

I only watch bits of the series, but I hope to watch it from season 1. From what I heard, the story is very interesting and it is not like any drama that I had seen, may it be modern au period drama.

Lovely Costumes

I upendo periodical costumes, especially in Europe. I was very familiar with Agatha Christie's Poirot and Miss Marple, so I have no single problem with this drama!

The British Cast

Although I did not watch season 3 onward, but when I watch the 2015 Disney reboot of Cinderella. I found out that Lily James was also from this drama, ironically her Downton Abbey costar Dan Stevens will play the Beast/ Prince Adam in this year's reboot of Disney's Beauty and the Beast!

See wewe Soon!

So, here are my 3 reasons and I will be seeing this onyesha soon. Would wewe all like to see it?

"DOWNTON ABBEY" – Series Three (2012) Retrospective

It took me a while to get around watching Series Three of "DOWNTON ABBEY". I had been inclined to watch it, while it aired on PBS last winter. But in the end, I decided to wait until the DVD release was offered through Netflix.

I suspect that some of my reluctance to watch the show's Series Three could be traced to my major disappointment over the lackluster Series Two. In fact, a part of me is amazed that the series' shoddy look at World War I could end up with an Emmy nomination for Best Drama. But I figured that series creator, Julian Fellowes, would make up for the Emmy-nominated disaster known as Series Two with an improved third season. In the end, Series Three proved to be an improvement. Somewhat.

What did I like about Series Three of "DOWNTON ABBEY"? It possessed three plot lines that I found a good deal to admire:

"THE WRONG CLASS"

After three seasons of viewing Britain's ITV series, "DOWNTON ABBEY", it occurred to me that there was something off about Julian Fellowes' portrayal of one of the major characters. That character is Matthew Crawley. And it is an error that I am surprised Fellowes had made.


"DOWNTON ABBEY" began with news of the sinking of the White nyota liner, the R.M.S. Titanic in April 1912. This famous event also caused the deaths of James and Patrick Crawley, the heirs presumptive to the Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham. This disruption in the line for the Grantham earldom forced Lord Grantham to seek his inayofuata heir, due to the fact that the title and estates only pass to male Crawleys and not to any of his three daughters. Lord Grantham's new heir turns out to be his third cousin once removed, Matthew Crawley.

Introduced at the end of the series' first episode, Matthew is a solicitor from Manchester, who lives with his widowed mother, former nurse Mrs. Isobel Crawley. When he receives word that he is to be the Earl of Grantham's new heir, Matthew does not seem particular pleased. He is very reluctant to...

The sekunde series (season) set in the first World War, finished its run in the UK at the end of last year. This was followed kwa the 2 saa krisimasi Special (not surprisingly screened on krisimasi Day!).

"DOWNTON ABBEY" – Series Two (2011) Retrospective

The debut of Julian Fellowes' series about an aristocratic family during the last few years before the outbreak of World War I garnered a great deal acclaim and awards, earlier this year. The success of the series led the ITV and Fellowes to continue the saga of the Earl of Grantham, his family and servants in a new season.

Series Two of "DOWNTON ABBEY" covered the last two years of World War I and the first mwaka of peace during the years 1916 to 1919. Episode One began with Matthew Crawley, the heir presumptive for the Earl of Grantham enduring the last days of the Somme Offensive in November 1916. The story immediately shifted toward the personal dramas that unfolded over eight to nine episodes.

Last season focused upon the entail issue that prevented Robert Crawley, the Earl of Grantham from bequeathing his title au any of his fortune to his three daughters - Lady Mary, Lady Edith and Lady Sybil Crawley and forced him to accept Matthew Crawley, a third cousin raised as a middle-class cousin as his heir. Season Two focused upon the Crawleys' attempts to adjust to the...

Another great makala I found on tumblr, this time kwa ladychauffeurs. I DID NOT WRITE THIS ARTICLE. I just thought it was excellent, so I ilitumwa it to the Branson and Sybil spot, but I felt I should post it here, too. That way the people who don't like Sybil/Branson au Branson (to whom this makala is addressed), who are unlikely to go on the Branson and Sybil spot, have a chance to read it, too.

I DID NOT WRITE THIS ARTICLE. All credit goes to ladychauffeurs@tumblr.

-----------------------------------------------

“You’re too scared to admit it… but you’re in upendo with me.”

First things first, please guise. Don’t let the actions of a couple of episodes wingu the wonderful character who has been with us since the fourth episode. People change, but they don’t change without reason.

I should probably start with the problems people have been having with Branson this past episode: He’s a jerk, he’s belittling Sybil’s nursing, he’s trying to force her to upendo him. D««

I saw this brilliant makala kwa GreenKneeHighs@tumblr, and I ilitumwa it to the Branson and Sybil spot, but I felt I should post it here, too, because I figure most Sybil/Branson mashabiki are also mashabiki of Branson, so would support this makala without question, when the people who really NEED to read this are those Downton Abbey mashabiki who don't like Sybil/Branson au Branson. I think this makala really puts into perspective some of the maoni Branson has made that have proved unpopular with the fandom.

Once again, I DID NOT write this article; all credit goes to GreenKneeHighs@tumblr.

------------------------------------------------

Concerning Branson and Sybil and *THAT* maoni he made…
So since the last episode has aired, the Downton Abbey track tag has been practically EXPLODING with what seems like the entire fandom up-in-arms about Branson telling Sibyl that her job was unimportant. Needless to say I was a little worried, but what I found odd was as mad as people were getting mad about what Branson said, nobody had ilitumwa the actual line.

Realism, it ain’t. In the world of Downton Abbey, war is a weekend sport and young ladies can kill Turkish diplomats with sex. The characters, when not in the midst of a pause, race through history and the corridors of Highclere ngome with breath-taking speed and dramatic flair. Some people swear kwa the show, calling it "compulsively watchable"; others ridicule its stylized dramatics and jump-the-shark antics, but you’ll be hard pressed to find a person who can’t hum the theme song.

Downton Abbey premiered on Great Britain’s ITV (ITV.LN) on September 26, 2010. It quickly gained a steady following (the first episode alone drew over 9 million viewers) and a 32% audience share. On January 9, 2011, PBS aired the onyesha in the United States, and the Downton craze spread like wildfire. The sekunde season, which aired on PBS this past January and February, consistently doubled PBS’ prime-time rating, according to the New York Times. To date, over 100 countries have...

So, just to say, this makala is not mine, all the credit goes to MarlyK from Basket of Kisses here:

Mathew Crawley and his Mum, Isobel, ride in one of those gorgeous cars that had to be hand-cranked. Matthew looks cranky. He is. You, too, would be in a foul mood if you’d been told wewe were about to inherit a beautiful castle, a large fortune, a title, and a household of servants to wait on wewe hand and foot. Isobel, his momma, chides him, “There’s no legal mechanism for wewe to refuse it. When wewe inherit, wewe can throw it away!” What else is an inheritance for, anyway?
Things get worse as soon as they arrive. Some guy in a suit and tie comes out and introduces himself as Molesley, the butler and valet. He offers to help them with their bags. (Many years into the future, Molesley will quit this gig and invent a a nifty notebook he’ll call a Moleskin. He’ll get the idea for the name from a mohel.) While Matthew kvetches, Isobel takes to her new-found status like a...

"DOWNTON ABBEY" – Series One Retrospective

The announcement of ITV’s new series, "DOWNTON ABBEY", had attracted my interest the moment I had learned it would air on American television, during the winter of 2011. I happened to be a shabiki of Robert Altman’s 2001 movie, "GOSFORD PARK". And when I learned that the movie’s Oscar winning writer, Julian Fellowes, was one of the series’ creators, my interest soon transformed into anticipation.

Focused upon a vast estate during the last years of the Edwardian England, "DOWNTON ABBEY" was able to allow viewers to glimpse into the lives of the estate’s owner (or caretaker), Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham; his immediate family; and the family’s servants through seven episodes. This first series began with news of the R.M.S. Titanic disaster in April 1912, which sparked a crisis for the Crawley family. The series ended with the commencement of World War I, over two years later. During those two years, the family endured the loss of two heirs presumptive, a new heir from the wrong social class, a personal scandal for Lord Grantham’s oldest daughter, a series of minor problems and a mystery...

I'm a huge shabiki of Downton Abbey much like others on this site. My cousin in Australia is also raving about it too where its appaerntly a huge hit. I so fell in upendo with the characters and places that I wanted to visit where they filmed it so I did a bit of googling and found wewe can do a tour. Without further ado I booked myself on this link which I can highly recommend as it goes to Downton Village and then finishes up at Highclere ngome where they film the main scenes above stairs. So go on treat yourself like we did and see where its all filmed.
