I wish that I had never seen Downton Abbey so I could watch it for the very first time all over again. Yes, the first viewing may be the best but I want to be able to see this again because it is such good entertainment and done so well, as only PBS can. The story is so compelling, the acting superb, and the costumes and sets are just awesome. I wish Hollywood knew that nudity and profanity are not necessary to put on a good show!

[...], CD 2 which included part 4 & 5 'stuck' for 'froze' at various parts, which resulted in being unable to view that part of the story; I was unable to 'go back' or 'go forward' and had to 'skip' ahead, therefore missing vital scenes.Third, INSTRUCTION should have been included such as CD 1 includes 'chapters' 1, 2, 3; CD 2 includes 4 & 5' etc. In addition, had I known that this was (apparently) an on-going or unfinished mini-series, I would have waited to order it until the complete series was available. When the story 'ends', World War I is just declared, & all matters remain unresolved, leaving one with a very unsatified feeling, and the feeling of just being LEFT HANGING. (ie. "What? Is that the end?? It CAN'T be the end! Where's the next CD??" The QUALITY of the drama, story & performances is excellent, and the historic representation of the period is accurate as well as fascinating.

Not Enough Stars!

Comments about PBS Masterpiece: Downton Abbey Season 1 DVD (U.K. Edition):

Well, what can I say? There aren't enough stars to rate Downton Abbbey! I loaned Season One to a friend and it has never been returned.I haven't the heart to ask for it back, so am buying another one. The Biltmore Estate in Asheville NC had "Dressing Downton ' for four months. Most of the costumes in the exhibit were from the early seasons. The response from the public was incredible; but I shouldn't be surprised. All are looking forward to Season Six and feeling badly that it is the last. The DVDs will be played and re-played! Thank you!

Comments about PBS Masterpiece: Downton Abbey Season 1 DVD (U.K. Edition):

We purchased Season 1-3 in Blue-Ray when that become available. We wish that you would offer Season 4-5 in Blue-Ray as well. All that is currently offered is single seasons or Seasons 1-5.
