« A Long Day | Extended Weekend »

Season Three

The extended weekends at the apartment allowed Anita and I to indulge on the things we liked to do together - watching movies. On one of the trips to Plaza Damas, we managed to pick up the third season of Downton Abbey, and devices a marathon for the two of us. We went through four episodes last night, and the rest - another four this afternoon after my ward rounds.

Due to that, we had to delay our trip back to Gombak, and went for a late lunch cum tea as well on the way home.

The third season was less gloomy than the war-tinged second season. The was no lack of drama of course. There was enough twists and turn to get the plot moving, new characters being introduced as well as a few departing. The ending was a good one though, providing some closure to a few of the questions left hanging. Shame that Lady Mary's wedding to Matthew was not shown in great splendour.

The narrative was sharp, and the comments from the Dowager Countess was as cutting as ever. Great screenplay with great direction and acting. Shirley MacLaine character only showed up in a couple of episodes though, leaving us wanting for more.

Next stop, the Christmas Special 2012. Not available yet for download on the UK iTunes Store as yet.
