Review

Everyone knows how a story about the Titanic is going to turn out, thanks to James Cameron (and, hopefully, their history teachers). But Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes, who wrote this new miniseries, considers that an advantage. "You don't have to get into a whiz about giving away the ending," says Fellowes, who has been interested in the story since he saw 1958's A Night to Remember as a boy. Each hour of the four-part miniseries spotlights different members of the ensemble cast (which includes Linus Roache, Toby Jones, and Josephine de la Baume) as they face disaster and scramble to escape the doomed vessel. "You think, 'Would I have panicked?'" says Fellowes. "''Would I have been brave?' That appealed to me." —Sara Vilkomerson, Entertainment Weekly

Product Description

The original four-part miniseries written by Julian Fellowes (Downton Abbey, Gosford Park) marking the Titanic’s 100th Anniversary.

Brought to life by a stellar, award-winning ensemble cast, this extraordinary re-telling of the doomed voyage reveals a world built upon class distinction – headed towards destruction as surely as Titanic towards the iceberg. From the aristocratic elite to the officers, crew, second class and steerage passengers, TITANIC follows the destinies of both victims and survivors as their stories of passion, betrayal and hope unfold amidst the tragic events of that fateful evening.

INCLUDES 2 HOURS OF BONUS MATERIAL:
Six Making-of Featurettes, Titanic: Behind-the-Production, “The Curse of the Titanic Sisters” Documentary
Episode One Audio Commentary with writer Julian Fellowes, producer Nigel Stafford-Clark and director Jon Jones

4.0 out of 5 stars The Pros and Cons of this Series April 17, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I am a historian, but I have also fairly accepted all Titanic movies and TV shows. So I will tell you about the Pros and Cons about this series and you can decide if you like it or not.

First off, let me say that I liked it. This series presented a new dynamic to seeing the Titanic and it also presented new real people who were on the ship (the Wideners, the Duff Gordons, and Dorothy Gibson are some examples). However, the first thing I will talk about is how the series is set up. The first three episodes have generally so many different points of view that are happening on the show. This is an awesome new way to look at a TV show, but you may not like this new style and thus the whole way the series is filmed will not be good for you. So in the end I liked this new dynamic, but depending who you are you may not like the way it is filmed with various point of views.

Now what are the plots? The good news is that this series did not generally rip off the popular James Cameron Titanic movie. This series does not really have a person from one class falling in love with another. Instead, there is a story in each class. The first episode will be off course first class where the wealthy elite of society are. The main character is the Earl of Manton is travelling with his wife Lady Manton and daughter Georgiana. Before the the voyage, Georgiana had ended up in jail and her father had to get her out. So Manton hopes to keep his daughter away from England while he goes to business in New York City. He also hopes she finds a husband. They also end up in conflict with some people who work for them in second class.

The second class story stars John Bately and his wife Muriel. John finds out his employer, the Earl of Manton, will be on board travelling first class.

I was quite excited when I heard that Julian Fellowes had signed on to write a new miniseries exploring the legendary Titanic tragedy. Fellowes is the reigning champion of upstairs/downstairs drama as evidenced by his Oscar winning screenplay for Altman's "Gosford Park" and his wildly successful production of "Downton Abbey." While that upscale soap opera is currently all-the-rage, it seemed a prime opportunity for Fellowes to branch out. Without a doubt, the class divisions, struggles and tensions aboard the Titanic certainly appeared to match his previous themes. And yet, while the idea seemed like an easy home run, "Titanic" (for all its elegance) is lacking in character drama that makes one actually care. The passengers on this ill-fated voyage are only superficially presented and their back stories are largely uninspired or entirely predictable. While there are still some good elements to "Titanic," therefore, I never felt the time investment in watching the four part miniseries paid off in any appreciable way.

The shortcomings of this particular trip rests almost squarely on the unimaginative screenplay. While I liked the idea of the overlapping structure of the show (each part presents different characters during the same pivotal time frame), it was an interesting narrative device that really didn't amount to much. The huge cast is impressive, but the characters lack dimension. A few stand-outs include Linus Roache (perhaps my favorite character, seen only sporadically after the first episode) as a progressive Earl, Toby Jones (always reliable) as a second class passenger dealing with a disappointed wife (The Tudor's Maria Doyle Kennedy in the series' most thankless role), and Glen Blackhall as an Italian immigrant working on the ship.

3.0 out of 5 stars Confusing When You Are Drowning In Plots April 16, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
I watched this on ABC and recorded it without the commercials and watched it again. I had high hopes for this mini-series but I really felt it didn't work for several reasons which had little to do with production values or poor casting. The casting was really quite good and for a television production which didn't have a billion dollar budget and mega special effects, it was really quite well done and rather impressive.
My problem with this production gravitated around issues such as continuity, character development, and something that is virtually insurmountable --- the legend of the Titanic itself.
I think it is difficult to play around with anything that has its basis in fact because too much has been written about the Titanic. While the subject is being overworked right now due to the centennial of the disaster, the event has been in the public eye for decades and got a new life when the wreckage was located and explored 26 years ago. Traveling Titanic shows, books, documentaries, and James Cameron's films have stoked public interest and has provided at the very least a common perception of what occured on April 14-15, 1912.
This production attempts to mimic the formula that has made Downton Abbey a phenomena. Julian Fellowes has written a screenplay that mixes real people and events with fictional characters that represent all classes of people present on the ship and creates multiple personal storylines for his ficticious characters. The problem I had with this is a mini series of less than four hours doesn't allow the viewer to get invested in the characters and their stories as well as an epic disaster. This production also hops all over the Titanic roadmap, bouncing between multiple narratives and the actual sinking.

Great Mini Series I enjoyed this one. Though if your looking for the romantic Titanic it's not that. This is more serious and dry think Downton Abbey on the water.
