Downton Abbey Series Finale Preview

At the beginning of the season, we had hoped this was the year Mary and Edith would grow up a little and learn to get along. But that “bitch” Lady Mary had to go and mess it up. Of course, Mary wouldn’t have had a chance to spill Edith’s secret […]

Downton Abbey Preview: “Season 6, Episode 6”

I can’t be the only one who was a bit horrified by the violent turn that dinner took last week. I mean, it seemed a tad dramatic — Robert spitting blood over Cora, himself, the table, the floor and everyone who tried to help him. But he’d been ignoring his […]

Downton Abbey: The End of an Era

Or “The Beginning of the End?” I have a lot of feelings about the end of this series, as I’m sure we all do. For the most part, I’ve really enjoyed getting to know the Crawley and their extended family which, of course, includes the servants. There have definitely been […]

We Need to Know: Why Is Downton Abbey’s Lady Mary Crawley So Indecisive?

I’ll admit it. The season 4 finale of Downton Abbey underwhelmed me. I had been enjoying a number of aspects of the storyline this season, particularly Michelle Dockery‘s portrayal of Mary’s grief. It was so tough to watch her in those first few episodes of the season. She seemed so […]

The Hollow Crown Preview: “Henry IV, Part 2” [VIDEO and PHOTOS]

We’ve always loved Shakespeare and the fact that so many well-known British actors get to work together and put their stamp on these characters is very exciting. If you’ve been watching the past few weeks or if this is your first episode, there is a lot to like about this […]

The Hollow Crown Preview: “Henry IV, Part 1” [VIDEO and PHOTOS]

There is so much great acting talent in this series, but we have to admit you had us at Tom Hiddleston. We’re huge fans of Shakespeare and we remember hearing about this series when it premiered across the pond. We’re excited we’re finally getting to see it stateside.
