To read my review of this week's installment of "Downton Abbey" please visit the Comcast site below (Those folks pay me to watch my favorite show -- how lucky am I?!) I usually also post the review here, but it's so long that I thought it best to direct you to the original site. Since I'm committed to offering my readers every last detail in my recaps, there was just too much to cram into this blog even if this is cyberspace. The two-hour episode was really two when first shown in the UK and should have been shown that way here as well. Both hours were stellar (the second was the actual season finale in Britain) but having shown them together the overall effect was a bit diluted. With so few episodes to a season, why rush it?
Don't miss the season finale airing Sunday. (Yes, I've already seen it). It's final moments will leave you breathless and be sure to check back here for my minute by minute recap and critique on Monday. For now, here's my take on this week's episode. Cheerio!
