Downton season goes by so quickly.
I am not as devoted to it as many of you are this year.
My true love for the show ended with the Matthew's death and the
departure of the romance.
The other romances leave me feeling blah.
But that is my problem. I hear many people are delighted
with the romantic story lines for Rose and Mrs. Hughes and I am really happy about that.
I will watch the show as long as it is on. This genre is my cuppa tea.
Perhaps next year we will get a little romance for Mary with the dreamy Matthew Goode, but gosh he was very cool this episode.
We know Fellow's can turn a story/character around on a dime.
(I actually am feeling manipulated to be honest.)
I love Tom and cried at his departure. Cried the most about this.
I did not care that Bates came back. That whole storyline was a big waste this season.
Mrs. Hughes is a saint and we all suspected it...now we know it for sure. I'm happy since she is happy with Mr. Carson.
Edith got to look pretty with her hair down.
Daddy got to be sweet again as did Cora.
Violet and Mrs. Crawley were the stars this season.
I did not care for the Dowager's romantic whole story line but loved Mrs. Crawley's.
Thomas got to use his devious skills for good instead of evil.
Mosely and Mrs. Barrow (?)....Moonlighting!
Oh gosh. I'd give the season a B-
The sets and clothing are A+ but the stories were C-.
I hope Julian Fellows takes a good vacation and clears his head and comes up with
a beautiful, romantic, sweet, fun show for us next year.
What would you grade this season of Downton Abbey?
p.s. Watch for a post on The Pioneer Woman coming shortly about....
