Maybe it will be glossy and extremely lush, but this serial called Downton Abbey leaves us breathless. During the Christmas holidays, I and my roommate :-) looked at all three series. Dazzled by the charm of English tradition and surprised in the ironic gags of some actors. The slow pace and the perfect shots, the beautiful clothes, the contrast between the staff in the basement and love affairs on the ground floor, the boredom of wealth make us hypnotized. It's amazing if you imagine living in a castle without to work, without driving a car or change your clothes to be comfortable on the sofa ... so how strange it's think about the concept of slavery as a family, who dreams and live only for the Big Family upstairs.
So, if you like Gosford Park, Pride & Prejudice etc...you must see it.
Another element of hypnosis to us was the Castle. Here it is here, still working and perfect. I ask him to take me there next holiday!
