As news about the upcoming season of Downton Abbey strolls thru my news feed I realize something...I don't really care.
After the First season I watched and rewatched the episodes until Season Two came along. And then I watched and watched Season Two until season three aired. But Season Three has stopped me dead in my Downton Abbey tracks.
I know I defended the shows right to kill Matthew. What were they suppose to do? And Sybil? What to do? They wanted to leave.
But to tell the truth I kind of just wish they would have ended the show with Matthew still alive and Mary and Matthew and baby living happily at Downton Abbey. The End.
That's what I would have done.
I don't really care enough about the other characters.
Matthew and Mary's story is what made me watch and watch and fall in love.
This is not to say I will not watch the show when it returns in January because I love to watch television and Maggie Smith is a big draw for me. But for me, the heart of the show is gone.
I will not be rewatching Season Three.
I don't even think I could rewatch the wedding. It was so beautiful.
One other thing, I hate Edith's storyline. Jane Eyre has been done.
I like that Edith works....I don't like her terrible romantic situations.
And so it goes...
Are you rewatching Season Three?
Is your heart still in it?
