My wife and I love the whole series. We have watched season 4 already and I'm waiting for the shipment of season 5 to come. This series has been without a doubt the best we have ever seen. You need to watch from the beginning to understand the characters. You will get hooked, we did.

1080p vs. 1080i - Big Mistake Changing

I have all four seasons/series of DOWNTON ABBEY on Blu-ray. They look great, but unfortunately the audio is terrible on seasons 3 & 4, and will probably be on all future releases. The first two seasons were released as 1080i, but subsequent releases have been 1080p.

Most UK television shows are filmed at a slightly different speed than movies or US television shows. When DOWNTON ABBEY is released as 1080p, it is converted and the speed is slowed down. This causes the music to be in the wrong key/pitch and voices are deepened. The overall effect is very flat. This speed change also affects the editing/timing of the scenes.

THIS IS UNNECESSARY PBS!!! Please do not convert the video unless you are going to correct the speed or at least the pitch of the audio. There are ways of releasing UK programs in 1080p correctly.

Please fix this problem or go back to 1080i. I am considering purchasing future seasons on DVD and exchanging the previous seasons for DVD. It would be a shame to have to give up high definition and go back to standard definition!

Downton Abbey Season 4 Review

Comments about PBS Masterpiece: Downton Abbey Season 4 (Original UK Edition) Blu-ray:

It's getting more "hokey" and unbelievable as the seasons progress. It doesn't seem to have the "class" of Upstairs, Downstairs. But still fun to watch/

Clean, enjoyable family watching

Comments about PBS Masterpiece: Downton Abbey Season 4 (Original UK Edition) Blu-ray:

My children and I have enjoyed watching the events of the Crawley family unfold against the backdrop of early 1900s England. We homeschool, so the series has been of great use to me in sparking conversation on how the world my kids are growing into came to be and how history affects us even now. It has inspired trips to the Titanic museum--in costume--and many library trips. The changes the world went through during this period are not well covered in history texts, and so watching them through the eyes of the Crawleys really brings the history to life. Best of all, this entire series is great FUN.
