I LOVE Downton; along with "Call the Midwife", its the biggest highlight of my television-watching year (admittedly I watch very little, but that's beside the point)
I love the characters, the costumes, the witty comments from the Dowager Countess, the dry sarcasm of Lady Mary, the beautiful Downton grounds, the highs and lows of the servants quarters. But you know what? Lately I feel like there's a bit too much drama at Downton...
I mean, really? Must they destroy the lives of every single character???
I feel so sad for her and even though I know its only a TV show, its put a real dampener on my enthusiasm for this show. I'm only glad that's all it is - a drama!
Bring back "Call the Midwife" - at least there are some happy endings in the real life stories!
Have any of you been hooked by this series? What are your thoughts on over-dramatising drama?!
