Review:

I watched the first season way back when it first aired but then canceled cable and totally forgot about it until I saw it on Amazon Prime. I ended up not re-watching the first season because I could remember the major points and I flew through the rest.

Mary, Michelle Dockery, was my least favorite character. When Lady Edith, Laura Carmichael, called her a bitch in the final season I nearly shouted, “Finally!” I really did not understand why the man she wound up with even liked her. She was nicer to Matthew, Dan Stevens, in the second season and she wasn’t bad in the third season, but all others she was horrible.

Loved watching the characters grow, I did think the fact that the Bate’s were almost always being framed for murder a bit tedious. All in all I could have enjoyed several more seasons of the show and now I’m trying to find something similar to it.

4/5
