I just finished the DVD set for the 3rd season. It will be interesting see Rose, that tasmanian devil, pushing the boundaries of propriety at Downton.
But WTF?? They didn't have to end it like that. Not at all, not at all. frick that.
I will keep watching, though. This is a great show, regardless of the complaints of soap-opera similarities and whatnot. The writing, acting, and direction is wonderful...except for the last 2 minutes. frick that shite.
I see Branson becoming the driving force behind Downton, now. I'm glad they got rid of that gold-digging housekeeper...that relationship would have ruined it for me. One of the best things about this show is their avoidance of sexual romps between the "upstairs and downstairs." That would have lowered the show to the American standards of mediocrity and vulgarity that mouth-breathers expect and like.
