Editorial Reviews

One set featuring all the romance, heartbreak, and scandal from this beloved series.
Created by Academy Award®-winner Julian Fellowes, Downton Abbey has been deemed Compulsively watchable from the get-go by Variety and Impossible to resist by the Wall Street Journal. Led by Hugh Bonneville, Elizabeth McGovern, Michelle Dockery, and Maggie Smith, the acclaimed ensemble cast brings to life all the drama and intrigue of the inhabitants of Downton Abbey, the lavish English country manor, home to the Earl of Grantham.
This set includes every episode of the first four seasons of this Golden Globe® and multi-Emmy® Award-winning series, following the Crawley family and their servants from pre-war England through the storms of World War I, and into the social upheaval of England in the 1920s as the lives of its inhabitants are shaped by romance, heartbreak, scandals, rumors, blackmail, and betrayal.

Format: DVD
A new series of Downton is an annual treat, and as usual this year it is followed by the DVD compendium. This includes the 34 episodes to date. There are seven episodes from the first series, eight each from the second, third and fourth, plus the 2011, 2012 and 2013 Christmas specials of which the first was a dramatic masterpiece, but the second did not deliver in the same way in the opinion of most people although it ended dramatically. The third was not as good as the first but was good solid stuff which most will enjoy.

The four series so far have taken us from 1912, just after the sinking of the Titanic, up to 1923. Each of the four series to date has had a slightly different background. Series 1 takes us to a very formal setting within the household with much concern about match making for the Crawley daughters to find them suitable partners which will secure the financial future of the estate. However, those above stairs are generally shown in largely a sympathetic light in their relationship with their servants below stairs and this sets the scene for the whole subsequent series.

The second series takes us through World War 1. Downton Abbey has been converted into a convalescent home for servicemen injured in the conflict. This quite different scenario provided the script writers with some interesting stories and the series runs from the Battle of the Somme in 1916 up to the end of the war in 1918.

The first Christmas special and the third series take place from late 1919 into 1920. The first features a very dramatic trial and this was probably the single best episode so far.

Format: DVD
we have watched all the downton abbey seasons and bought this (from pbs, not amazon). i give it only three stars because the dvd's are missing parts. At first i thought i was imagining things but they have cut little odds and ends that i liked, such as: getting used to the telephone (deleted completely), mrs. patmore's bad eyes (alluded to but short), lady grantham slipping on soap (deleted completely) etc. etc. The core stories are here, but some of the charm is gone, in my opinion.

I assume this version is what they showed in the UK (from the label) and if i buy more downton abbey DVDs in the future, i will avoid the UK versions.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
After hearing rave reviews from the press and a few friends, I still had not heard what I needed to pique my desire to watch this series. However, watching a repeat broadcast of a 20/20 episode on ABC News did the trick. The 20/20 episode showed High Clere Castle, the setting for Downton Abbey, as it exists today, and the family who now lives there and is tasked with the business of keeping a business running to support the upkeep of the castle and grounds. The episode also featured bits of scenes from the television series and and discussed the basic themes of the TV series. I realized then that this character driven, period drama that highlights the social stigma between the classes of people that existed in Britain in the 1920s was exactly what I would love to see. The price on Amazon for the whole series was excellent!

If you have any question before you purchase, you could always purchase an episode or two to watch. It is available through Prime Amazon Streaming, but not for recording; and if you don't have a compatible device, you will not be able to watch in HD. It WILL, however be enough to see if you like what you see. Also, the special features will not be available through streaming.

My husband sat in the den with me and with his computer, glancing back and forth at the TV in spite of himself while I watched the TV and occasionally him. He commented on the fantastic production values, saying that the Downton Abbey DVDs seemed much more like a series of elegant films than a television series. He found himself watching much more than he had planned.

Downton Abbey has immediately become one of our favorites series that we pull out at least once or twice a year. I promise that you won't be disappointed if anything I've written about appeals to you.

A new series of Downton is an annual treat, although you may prefer to wait for the Series 1-5 DVD which will doubtless appear early in 2015 since Series 5 has now aired on UK TV. This set includes the 34 episodes to the end of Series 4. There are seven episodes from the first series, eight each from the second, third and fourth, plus the 2011, 2012 and 2013 Christmas specials of which the first was a dramatic masterpiece, but the second did not deliver in the same way in the opinion of most people although it ended dramatically. The third was not as good as the first but was good solid stuff which most will enjoy.
