Season 2 DVD

Season 2 of the Emmy® Award-winning Downton Abbey returns as The Great War rages across Europe, and not even the serene Yorkshire countryside is free from its effects. The men and women of Downton are doing their part both on the front lines and the home front, but the intensity of war only serves to inflame the more familiar passions--love, loss, blackmail, and betrayal.

Thank you PBS for first airing Series 1. That is how we got hooked. This is such a grand series that I still watch it Sundays on PBS even though we own Series 2.

I bought our Downton Abbey Series 2 from the U.K. last November, 2011. I just could not wait until its North American release. Some years ago we bought a region-free DVD player for so many lovely, intelligent British movies.

I notice that Series 2 is showing 3 dvds, but our U.K. Series 2 has 4 dvds and that does NOT include the Christmas Special. I just checked to make sure that it does contain 4 discs. We watched it 2 months ago so perhaps the special features takes up 1 disc, I would have to play it again to see.

I just watched clips and a trailer from the Christmas Special on Youtube and it is something! That special is included on Series 2 here at PBS. They are now selling it seperately in the U.K. I suppose I should have waited for its release here. As the old saying goes, "Good things come to those that wait."
Now, I wil sell my U.K. Series 2 and but the North American one in a couple of weeks.

I read a review on another website and the writer stated that one really needs to see the Christmas Special to complete the continuity of the stories. Series 3 won't begin exactly where Series 2 ended. Series 3 begins where the Christmas Special ends. Viewing it on Youtube substantiates this comment.

FYI, Youtube shows a number of Q&A sessions between the audience and most of the main performers while they were here in the N.A. (maybe during their trip her to attend the Golden Globes).

In-depth study of the English upper and lower classes

Comments about PBS Masterpiece: Downton Abbey Season 2 DVD (U.K. Edition):

This is such a balanced account without being snobbish or boring of the class system in Great Britain. My mum was British and her mom owned a pub. I never knew my grandmom so this is an interesting look into their ways.

I can't get enough Downton Abbey

By PA 65000

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS Masterpiece: Downton Abbey Season 2 DVD (U.K. Edition):

It seemed that after Season 1, what could they possibly do in Season 2. But, you can't top the opening scene of bombs blasting and earth exploding. Great follow-on and then lead-on for Season 3.
