TV Show: Downton Abbey Season 1
My rating on a 1-10 scale: 8.5
Genre: Period drama, life, family
Series or set: Downton Abbey
Number in series: 1st
Primary actors: Hugh Bonneville, Michelle Dockery, Jim Carter, Maggie Smith, Dan Stevens
Length: 7 episodes, each 45 minutes (except two that are about 65 apiece)
Based on: A real life story, at least in part, I believe…y’all probably know better than I do?
Time period: Early 1900s (just before World War I)
Rating: Unknown…prolly PG-13 in movie ratings
Year it came out: 2010
My overall opinion: I enjoyed it! I always knew I would, but sure enough…I was right. All in all, it was a good show and I enjoyed getting to know all the characters. And I’m definitely excited to watch Season 2! There was a little homosexual content, specifically in the first episode, that kinda ruined that whole episode for me – it was disgusting. Nothing explicit, but still enough to be stomach-turning in a horrid way. Other than that, for the most part, it’s fairly clean. Mary is an interesting leading lady, and getting to know her, and indeed, all of the family was a lot of fun. I’m definitely excited to see where it all goes in the next season! And it ended on such a cliff-hanger with the beginning of World War I – ooo yeah. Anyway, so yeah – good show! Not perfect, didn’t love it, but worth my time.
