    Jumping the Shark.

    Jumping the Shark. DA has been a wonderfully entertaining obsession since the first season, and after the awful tragedies of last season (which I hated but understood why they were necessary), I had hoped season four would run with new, exciting, possibilities for my beloved Granthams and Crawleys. Oh boy; that doesn't happen. I know the season is not over for everyone yet so I will not be specific in events. But oh what a letdown! There is an AWFUL plot line for Anna and Bates; Lord G moves wildly between being the decent but befuddled guy we know and nothing more than a pretentious jerk who has learned nothing from past follies and engages in deplorable, elitist behavior. Cora seems to have nothing to do but go through ladies' maids, clueless to their (and everyone else's) deceptions. Last season looked like Thomas was growing and maturing--whoops; that's gone. The downstairs triangles of Daisy/Ivy/Alfred and Jimmy have to be the most mind numbingly boring of the entire series. They so need to be gone. Mrs Hughes is still wonderful but is little more than everyone's "Mother Confessor" this season. Mary's foray into modern business is promising but WHY must Fellowes throw new men in her path?? Explore her as a newly modern woman--and mother--but since the baby is rarely in her presence we totally forget she even has a baby. Brandon is a little more of an attentive parent but has little to do but stand around and say he doesn't fit in. And poor, poor, Edith. Why in the world does she have to be such an abused ninny of a character? The other reviewer here said that maybe Fellowes is out of ideas--have to agree. I would rather see my previously loved show end rather than dissolve into this mess. Two stars only for the Dowager who is still the life of the party and Isobel who is coming out of her shell to be an even more wonderful foil for the Dowager.

    I enjoyed season 1,2 and 3. I loved it. But season 4 is very disappointing. Season 4 feels really off. Something tells me that Julian Fellowes is out of good ideas. So sad!

    DA is such a great series. Can't wait for next season. Maggie

    DA is such a great series. Can't wait for next season. Maggie Smith is always such a joy to watch. Love her comments. Bring back Shirley M. next year. The two Shirtley and Maggie add so much to the series.

    Season 4 is 'spot-on' with the changing times of the 1920s!

    Downton Abbey is always such a joy to watch.  This season, the story line has grown deeper (more mature) and even more enthralling with many controversial issues being explored.

    What makes this series so interesting is how the brilliant writers of Downton Abbey stay true to the time period.  In season 4, we get to see firsthand what England was like in the roaring '20s.  Their world is changing, both socially and economically, and watching our beloved Downton characters go through the inevitable growing pains of adjustment (some more gracefully than others) is very exciting indeed.
