Well. I am as fickle as fickle can be...
I was broken hearted when sweet, perfect Matthew died.
Nothing would ever be the same.
Downton. el stinko.
But here we are at the end of season four and I just adore Lord Gillingham. When I saw his picture a year ago as a potential suitor for Mary I did not like how he looked. But on film his kind eyes and sweet smile have blown that preconceived idea out of the water.
He is my choice for Mary.
Pros and Cons of Season Four (In my very humble but opinionated opinion)
The general depiction of surviving a terrible loss especially Isobel, Mary and Tom.
Tom is a big pro for me.
Isobel and Edith too. I have come to really like these characters.
I think Edith is nicer than Mary now.
Mrs Hughes is a dear. I hope she and Carson become lovers. Haha...just kidding about the lovers....
I hope they become ....well...what would they become. Boyfriend and Girlfriend? Anyway... I hope they love one another.
Rose was so much less annoying that she could have been. I was glad.
The Dowager was tolerable, I suppose. No. Wait. She had some good solid scenes with Mary at the beginning. The verbal sparring with Isobel goes in my cons...sorry.
Mosely was a wonderful doofus this season. I liked him best this year.
Mrs Patmore was sweet to Daisy.
Daisy's father in law. LOVE him. He is kind and loving and I wish they had a show all their own.
Loved the colors of the dresses.
Loved the music.
Lord Grantham and Isis.
Her awful mother and her hideous hair and makeup.
Her ill cast brother. Sorry Paul.
Bates. I loathe him. He is a psychopath. I shall call him Dexter from now on.
I didn't care one bit about the Alfred, Daisy, Ivy storyline.
I was not very interested in the whole Prince of Wales letter storyline.
Threatening Thomas storyline. But I guess without this we would not have seen Mosely's strength. ha.
Hate the drop waist dresses.
Wishes for next year.
Tom finding love...but not with the teacher. She is too mean. I'd like to see Tom with that pretty friend of Rose's.
Edith finding happiness.
Mary happy with Lord Gillingham. Gilligan's Island. That might be a funny skit.
Happy. Happy. Happy.
What did you think? What were your pros and cons of season four?
Last night on The Voice
I will watch until this couple is voted off.
I'm like that.
They were delightful to listen to!
This is a Beatles song if you can't seem to place it.
I was thinking Monkees or Simon and Garfunkel...had to look it up!
Can't wait to read your comments!
