Downton Abbey Goes Well With Tea and Popcorn

My torrid love affair with Downton started not a mere few months ago in the early summer. All the fall shows had ended and there was nothing else to watch. I kept hearing, “Downton this, Downton that” so I thought I’d see what the fuss was about. I will say at first it was hard to step into the world for two reasons. For one, it is a British drama, which I was not used to. The pace and the feel are different, even though it is shot in a modern way. There are obvious lulls in it that really speak to its origin.

Secondly, it is set in a world that I have never seen on television as of yet. It is a period piece that is set in the early 1900’s in England. When American shows focus on period pieces, they generally focus on the perspective of United States so it was very intriguing to view something that is usually not seen.

After the first few episodes, I was hooked, and didn’t stop watching until I was right at the end of it. The fleshed out characters, and the drama got me absolutely hooked. Last season events took many long time fans for a huge turn, and now we “Downtoners” all must wait until February 2014 for the fourth season to begin.

The trailer was just released last week, so I was extremely excited to see a glimpse of upcoming events. And after the season three finale, I am anxious to see how the season will play out. As all Downtoners know, it’s best not to read too much into a trailer, because things can change drastically in a mere 40 minutes of this delicious British drama.
