  • Downton Abbey: Season 5/ Episode 8 – Recap/ Review (with Spoilers)

    Overview As Rose gets married, people talk about leaving, the future, and then a scandal erupts. Review (with Spoilers) Sometimes I forget that British programming usually don’t have 24 episode seasons, but the benefit of that is they rarely overstay their welcome. However, with only 8 episodes this season, I must admit there was an episode or two in which I felt bored with Downton Abbey. However, in episode 8 we are given quite a lot. Making me happy there is still the Christmas episode to look forward to. Community Rating: 0.00% (0) - No Community Ratings Submitted.

  • Downton Abbey: Season 5/ Episode 7 – Recap/ Review (with Spoilers)

    Overview As a lot of drama gets resolved, Lord Merton’s sons ruin a nearly peaceful episode. Review (with Spoilers) Well it seems I was wrong about Edith’s exit, but nonetheless it does seem a few characters are certainly planning for life after Downton. Though this isn’t to say others may not leave the family. But whoever may leave, it seems the separation won’t be easy for them. For more of what happens in episode 7, look below.

  • Downton Abbey: Season 5/ Episode 6 – Recap/ Review (with Spoilers)

    Overview As things begin to settle down at Downton, partly due to bad news, it seems one person makes their exit. Review (with Spoilers) Though nowhere near World War II, it is quite interesting to hear mentions of Hitler as news about Mr. Gregson comes in. But, recognizing World War II likely won’t be covered, and supposedly the show will end before the stock market crash and depression, it seems talking about the world’s last great evil is in vain. However, while we won’t get to see a real shock come to Downton, at least the little bit of drama in everyone’s personal life seems to want to compensate. As for whether it truly does, look below.

  • Downton Abbey: Season 5/ Episode 5 – Recap/ Review (with Spoilers)

    Overview While those at Downton continue to try to protect Mr. Bates, and Edith tries to salvage her ability to see Marigold, mostly everyone else is dealing with their romantic relations. Review (with Spoilers) I must admit I felt a bit bored by this episode. For while Lord Grantham gets in a fight, and we get to learn whether Tom and Ms. Bunting may become something, everyone else seemed rather ho-hum. Which I can’t say if it is because some of the stories feel a bit dragged out, or whether maybe I’m losing interest in the show. Either way, I’m hoping between a decision Edith made, the drama in the Grantham relationship, as well as maybe Rose livening things up, the next episode will be a bit more invigorating.

  • Downton Abbey: Season 5/ Episode 4 – Recap/ Review (with Spoilers)

    Overview The future of many relationships, whether romantic or not, are put into question as things largely turn sour. Review (with Spoilers) It seems more and more that relationships are the focus of the season. For with Cora seeming very unhappy with Robert; the Dowager speaking of what could have happened with the Russian prince; Mary’s decision in regards to Tony; Ms. Crawley’s relationship with Lord Merton; as well as the burgeoning love Tom is finding for Ms. Bunting, the ends and beginning of relationships dominate. Though this isn’t to say those without a beau are forgotten. For more on episode four, look below. Community Rating: 0.00% (0) - No Community Ratings Submitted.

  • Downton Abbey: Season 5/ Episode 3 – Recap/ Review (with Spoilers)

    Overview As people get a bit too comfortable in their secrets, slowly their lives begin to unravel. Review (with Spoilers) Past and current relationships are gone into and we see just how fragile each one is. For with most of noteworthy relationships having dark secrets attached, naturally it weighs heavy on at least one party involved. However, while many are dealing with negative aspects in their life, when it comes to the Dowager there is a pleasant surprise. Community Rating: 0.00% (0) - No Community Ratings Submitted.

  • Downton Abbey: Season 5/ Episode 2 – Recap/ Review (with Spoilers)

    Overview As people grow closer, things are revealed as they are seen flaws and all. Making most look more appealing than they did in the past. Review (with Spoilers) If there is one thing I have always found wonderfully strange about Downton Abbey, it is that it has such a large cast of characters, and reoccurring guest stars, and yet it rarely feels like anyone is ever fully left out. Almost everyone has something going on in their life, usually worth interest, and it is rare for two episodes to go by without some sort of update. Now, with praise aside, let’s talk about the episode. Community Rating: 0.00% (0) - No Community Ratings Submitted.
