The Grand has some marvelous characters from scheming Marcus to dreaming Monica; characters whose lives unfold within the life at The Grand Hotel. More gutsy than Upstairs, Downstairs, in The Grand you watch the staff and the family wrestle with the ravaged young men of WW1 to the profiteers of the slums. Dealing with the tough issues of war, prostitution, incest and grand society you get an insiders view of what boils beneath the surface of this family's business. The Grand strips away the romanticized view of the Roaring Twenties and leaves you at times wanting to turn away because it can be just too much realism, yet captivated because it is so human.

I watched the entire collection of this former TV series and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a story of the goings on in a nice hotel in Manchester, England right after World War 1. I highly recommend this to anyone that enjoys good drama.

We had such high hopes for the series, it became clear after a point that the writing like a lifetime movie. Some scandal and a few interesting situations but most of it lifetime movie. The actors can only do so much with the bad script,a few of the main characters are so self-sacrificing that it a bore. Still not sure what happen tot he grandmother. Watched many British series I recommend London Hospital, Downton Abby, Call the Midwife, He knew he was right, Upstairs Downstairs (1970's version) better written much more entertaining.

Fun miniseries....and I only call it that as they were not renewed after the second season. I was a little upset by the replacement of two key characters with different actors, and like the audience was not supposed to notice?
While it may worked with Darren in Bewitched, it's hard to accept the actor playing the son. Still, a good period piece.

I absolutely loved The Grand. The first season really hooks you in. The second season is fireworks all the way through. I mean really unbelievable! Several of the events are jaw dropping. I wish it went beyond two seasons. Excellent and very pleasing.

Of all the characters in this production only one has redeeming character qualities. They rest are not just flawed they are the epitome of degradation. My ears and ears are not garbage cans. I'm ashamed to say I watched all of Season one waiting to see some redeeming element of the characters. None was to be had. I removed it from my watch list and will not be watching the second season. I highly recommend you do not watch it. The characters are not well played and very shallow.

Bitchy, bitchy, bitchy and mean. Wow, there are some low down characters in The Grand who have no compunctions about hurting their co workers or family. My favorite is the beautiful Esme Harkness who is caring, tender and hard as nails and quite beautiful. Next favorite is Collins, head of hotel staff. He is the caring, kind and moral compass of the show.
Marcus, one of the 2 brothers who own The Grand is one nasty so and so. The times when he seems to be most caring seem to be our of character. No sooner does he do something nice then he makes up for it, if you will, by doing something hurtful. In the series of 18 or 19 shows there were 2 cast changes which I think were poor replacements: Stephen, the son, who served in WWI. The replacement actor was cast as a rather spineless individual. The 2nd change was the actress who played Marcus' wife. Her strength seemed to be in how much she could make her head and face quake when things got tough. Many of the characters were rather unlikable but isn't that the way of life?
But the clothing...., ugh!

I enjoy British TV, the humor and the use of language. It moves a little too slow and why I gave it only 3 stars. They drag it out too much. There is violence, rape and the hanging of a 17 year old girl. It was a little deep for a casual TV series about the hotel. Went from light to super dark in a matter of one episode. That moved fast, though. And there are too many undertones of sexual infidelities, like that's all that is on anyone's mind. It didn't hit enough of the usual British levity or use of language for a 5-star rating.
