A STATELY COUNTRY HOUSE, A NOBLE FAMILY AND A MESS!

Filed under: Downtown Abbey — Tags: — jherzlinger @ 4:28 pm

HAPPY START TO THE WEEK! I LOVE MY IPAD AND YOU CAN TELL WHAT I WAS DOING AT THE AIRPORT AND ON THE PLANE!

To know me is to know I am in love with British 19th -early 20th century disfunction! Wealthy disfunction has always been my poison of choice.  Those of you that know me I am sure wonder why! NOT , so You must watch this mini series! It is brilliant!

The Downtown Abbey estate stands a splendid example of confidence and mettle, its family enduring for generations and its staff a well-oiled machine of propriety. But change is afoot at Downton — change far surpassing the new electric lights and telephone. A crisis of inheritance threatens to displace the resident Crawley family, in spite of the best efforts of the noble and compassionate Earl, Robert Crawley (Hugh Bonneville, Miss Austen Regrets); his American heiress wife, Cora (Elizabeth McGovern); his comically implacable, opinionated mother, Violet (Maggie Smith, David Copperfield); and his beautiful, eldest daughter, Mary, intent on charting her own course. Reluctantly, the family is forced to welcome its heir apparent, the self-made and proudly modern Matthew Crawley (Dan Stevens), himself none too happy about the new arrangements. As Matthew’s bristly relationship with Mary begins to crackle with electricity, hope for the future of Downton’s dynasty takes shape. But when petty jealousies and ambitions grow among the family and the staff, scheming and secrets — both delicious and dangerous — threaten to derail the scramble to preserve Downton Abbey. Created and written by Oscar-winner Julian Fellowes (Gosford Park), Downton Abbey offers a spot-on portrait of a vanishing way of life.

You will totally be in love with this and I am not a bit mini-series gal!

Enjoy!

Love,

Jamie
