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.

No doubts this is an excellent series. I'd recommend the series to anyone.
Caution when buying Seasons 1, 2, 3, and 4 together in on box as I did. Unless you "binge watch" it is difficult to know if all the DVDs are in working order. I had read customer reviews before my purchase that there were problems with the DVDs. I experienced problems with the DVDs for Season 2. At first I thought the DVD player was in need of replacement. The Downton Abbey introduction with Laura Linney was blotched (blocks of color al over the screen) and the audio was "jagged."But then I tried other DVDs and there was no problem. I then retried starting the "reluctant" DVD several times as well as fast forwarding. In other words I played around with DVD till it decided to play. I don't know why it suddenly starting playing. Maybe I held my tongue just right! It just did. This happened throughout Season 2. Season 3 is playing nicely - no problems.
So buying single sets of the series will provide ample viewing time within Amazon's 30 day return period.
I plan to purchase Season 5.
It’s definitely habit forming.
I had purchased the "original UK version". I'm upset and very disappointed. If Amazon knew about this problem, they should have taken this off their sale list, or they should at least have warned customers!!

Difficult to say more, better or different about this jewel. I adore this true masterpiece !
I ordered it as a Christmas gift (me, I already have the complete series of Seasons 1--4 and I can't wait to buy the Series 5) and it was delivered sooner that expected.
Thank you, Amazon !
